I did not say you can't make a living at teaching dance, I said "probably". In my experience, only the studio owner and 'champions' whose services are in demand can work full time and make a living wage. I know dancers that have gone the chain school route, who have left because their wages are so low. Those schools might charge $110.00/hour but they only pay the staff $10-$15/hour.

Well, I coached and taught in chain schools, all over the States for over 30 yrs ( thru 2005 ) and depending on location, there is ample opportunity for female teachers in the larger metro areas ( especially trained ones in either Amer. or Intern style )

Even in some of the smaller towns I visited, there was ALWAYS a full time lady teacher ( and I dont mean the owner ).

As to income, there are many who now give guarantees .

And..at $15 per hr, that is WAY above minimum wage plus benefits like dance training and trips .
