1.0 Executive Summary

Social dancing means community. Co-operative, rather than competitive. It means respect for those whom we dance with, whether they be partners or others with whom we share the dance floor. It means taking care that everyone has a good time, rather than being selfish and self-centred. It means being sociable, rather than a show-off. It means dancing with everyone, not just favourite partners, and usually it means changing partners every dance. It means being civil in partnering, waiting until the music starts, before asking someone to dance. It means inclusive, rather than exclusive. (The term “dance community” is open, in the sense that it includes all those with an interest in dancing, rather than only those who belong to something, or have taken training. So people are seeking schools where they can learn.

El Ritmo Dance company is dedicated to bringing quality and affordable dance instruction to Rostov on Don. There is a very active and dedicated social dance community already located in Rostov on Don. However, there has never been an actual dance studio, where these people can expand their knowledge of dance and enjoy being with other people of like interests. It is our plan to incorporate the existing dance community into our studio to begin with a strong base of supporters. From there we will be able to spread the word that dancing is a fun and exciting way to spend time. There are many benefits to dancing that will attract people from many backgrounds and interests.

1.1 Objectives

The following are goals and objectives of El Ritmo Dance for Year 2010 through Year 2012 :
?Create a dance studio with a warm, supportive atmosphere, which is based on satisfying customers.
?Provide a social and entertainment forum for people with diverse interests, backgrounds and ages.
?Provide dance training for students at all levels of dance, from beginner to advanced.
?Provide continual training, benefits and incentives for staff to encourage a long-term commitment of employees.

1.2 Mission

El Ritmo Dance offers a place where people can learn to dance, meet new people, have fun and feel comfortable. We offer a varied dance program with price options for all levels of interest, with greater emphasis on group classes and small package sessions to reach dance skill objectives. Our instructors have access to continual training on different social dance congresses. This provides our students with up-to-date steps and technique and access to the latest dance trends.

2.0 Company Summary

El Ritmo Dance, soon to be located in Rostov on Don, Russia, will provide the community with a comfortable, friendly environment in which to learn the art of social dancing. El Ritmo Dance will offer private dance instruction, group classes, social dance parties and rental facilities for local events.

Social dancing (such as Salsa, Swing, Argentinian Tango, Lindy Hop, Bachata, Social Cha cha cha) as well as an art, has become increasingly popular worldwide. As a result, the studio can expect to attract a wide cross section of customers. El Ritmo Dance will appeal to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds, looking for creative self expression, exercise and/or social opportunities through dance.

2.1 Start-up Summary

El Ritmo Dance’s start-up costs are based on an assumption that it will lease space at the Lendvorets. This space is ready for occupancy but will need a few minor renovations. The renovations include building out an office on the main floor and a caterer kitchen.

2.2 Company Ownership
El Ritmo Dance is a Limited Liability Company owned and operated by Marina Vanyushina and Genadiy Vanyushin.

3.0 Services
El Ritmo Dance is dedicated to bringing the fun and challenge of dancing to Rostov on Don at an affordable cost. We will offer private and group dance instruction for social through competitive level dancers. El Ritmo Dance will also provide a place for dancers to use the skills they have learned, by having weekly dance parties, seasonal/holiday dances and annual social dance congress.

El Ritmo Dance will offer its students a variety of instructional choices. By offering them several options, we can best serve their individual needs.

Private Lessons offer students the best value for their investment. With a private lesson, the students will work one-on-one with an instructor, receiving personalized instruction and immediate correction. Through experiencing the physical sensation of connected movement, the student is able to confidently replicate that movement in order to provide a pleasant and comfortable experience to other partners. In learning the best methods, one-on-one, both beginning and advanced students will find they progress faster and more easily, as they enjoy the sensation of partner dancing.

Group Classes are both an introduction to the experience of dancing with different partners, and a chance for the students to become familiar with a variety of step patterns. Rotation of partners, throughout the class allows dancers to practice steps with different partners. This format promotes comfort in dancing with several partners, as well as the communication that goes along with sharing a learned experience. Group lessons will be available every week in the traditional styles and latest club trends. Classes will be offered at every level, from basic beginner through advanced competitive styling. In addition, specialty classes will be offered for children and teens.

Practice Dances will be held once a week to allow students an opportunity to practice the dances learned, in an environment with other students learning the same thing. Instructors will circulate on the dance floor, assisting with questions or demonstration of steps, as well as to dance with students.
We will offer classes for the following social dance:
• Salsa LA
• Salsa Casino
• Salsa NY
• Bachata
• Cuban Cha cha cha
• Lindy Hop
• Swing
• Argentinian Tango
Facility Rental will be another service offering. The Lendvorets is currently a very popular place in Rostov on Don for weddings, receptions, musical events, etc.

4.0 Market Analysis Summary

Social Dancing is an industry that now continuing to grow. According to a recent press release by 1TV-Television, more than one million people enroll in social dance classes each year. Since 1985, the number of dancers has increased by 25% each year.

The timeless popularity of social dancing, combined with the growing interest in the trendy dances, has proven to be a winning combination around the world. We are confident it will produce the same results in Rostov on Don.

4.1 Market Segmentation

According to the information published by the Rostov on Don Chamber of Commerce, Rostov on Don had a total 1.300 million people (2009). It is the 10th biggest city in the Russian Federation. Together with its Rostov agglomeration, population of the city is 1.8 million people (6th place in the country).

El Ritmo Dance feels that the populations of Rostov on Don are all potential customers. We have divided these potential customers into the following groups:
?Children/Teens (19 yrs. and under).
?College Students/Young Adults (20-24 yrs.)
?Single and Married Adults (25-55 yrs.)

4.2 Target Market Segment Strategy

Everyone who has the ability to walk can learn to dance. It is our job to present dance to these people and introduce and develop interest in the community for social dance.
For children and teens it is important to show the fun in dance. We can introduce Social Dance through Junior and Senior High School.
To colleges’ students we are going to introduce social dance through free open dance classes in universities and colleges in the city. Young adults will be introducing to dance through social dance parties in different night clubs and fitness clubs. We also plan to work with the Universities to offer classes to their students for credit.
Single and married adults between the ages of 25 and 55 have traditionally been the biggest supporters of the social dance studio community. This group is generally looking for new things to try and do. For singles we offer another way to meet people, and date. We will also have special wedding packages, which offer the new couple options for learning their first dance. For married couples dance is something new to learn together and provides a great social outlet. By working with the local clubs, we can be sure there are places for people to use the dance they are learning and in turn spread dance further into the community.

4.3 Service Business Analysis
The social dance industry has experienced substantial growth at the rate of 25% each year since 1985. There are some key factors for the rise in demand for dance instruction and places to partnership dance:

•The popularity of trendy dances like Lindy Hop, Argentinian Tango, and Salsa have made an impact on the number of people wanting to learn how to dance.

•The popularity of partnership dancing has grown immensely in the last decade. Those who are familiar with dance are well aware of how fun and addicting an evening of dancing can be. Those who have not yet experienced the thrill of moving gracefully around the dance floor with a partner, need a convenient, relaxed atmosphere, where they can feel comfortable learning and utilizing current popular dances.

El Ritmo Dance seeks to provide its customers with affordable quality instruction in a fun and supportive environment.

4.3.1 Competition and Buying Patterns

There are currently no other social dance studios in Rostov on Don. However, there are a few independent dance teachers, who teach classes at local bars, or rent floor space. There is also a local group, Dance Connection, that holds dances on Friday nights at the Ludi club. This group does not have a studio and its main purpose is to find places for people to dance and enjoy themselves.

El Ritmo Dance marketing strategy will target people who wish to get more for their investment in dancing. A large variety of dance lesson packages and programs will be offered in an effort to make dancing affordable. Teachers will be highly skilled and professional, keeping with the image of the studio. The studio will be an elegant place to come, where customer service is number one. Marketing venues will include placement advertisement, direct mail, Internet Web page and open free dance lessons.

El Ritmo Dance sales strategy will be based on a consultative style where the customers and teachers work together to identify and plan a course of action to satisfy the customer. Teachers will participate in continuous consultative sales training and receive regular sales coaching where the identification of customer buying criteria will be paramount. Sales closes will be based on demonstration of satisfying the customer criteria.

5.0 Strategy and Implementation Summary
5.1 Competitive Edge

As previously mentioned, there is currently no other social dance studio in Rostov on Don. This automatically gives El Ritmo Dance a competitive edge on the market. However, we do not plan to sit back and think that people will come to us if we wait. Because Rostov on Don is not used to having a dance studio, this gives us the challenge of introducing the benefits of having a dance studio.
We plan to keep our prices in line with the lower cost of living expenses of the Rostov on Don area. We will offer a wide variety of very competitive packages. Our teachers will be trained in the latest trends and with up-to-date styling of today’s dances. We plan to partner with many of the studios in Russia so that we can keep up with the trends of the big city and offer more variety to our students.

5.2 Marketing Strategy

Our marketing plan will be very simple. Satisfy our customers and provide them with the desire to continue dancing. A happy customer will not only keep coming back, but they will tell other people about El Ritmo Dance.

We will market fun! What better product could we possibly have than that?! Our biggest challenge will be getting people who have never been in a dance studio before to come and try us out. Many people have never considered taking dance lessons before. Our marketing message will emphasize the opportunity to meet people, to enhance the quality of leisure time, to gain health benefits and gain life-long skills that will give them respect from their peers.

We will advertise in the yellow pages, local newspapers, flyers, coupons, discount books, radio, and signs around town.

5.3 Sales Strategy

One of our marketing strategies is to advertise discount specials or introductory offers. These are designed to introduce people to the different dances our studio offers, and the dances our customers want to learn. Our instructors will work with the customer on these specials to discover what it is they are looking for in dance, and to outline a course that suits the customer’s wants and needs. When a course outline is agreed upon by customer and instructor they will meet with a manager for a brief consultation to make sure the customer is satisfied with the lesson outline and that the course will meet the expectations of the customer. The customer will then sign up for the lessons by contract and commit to a series of appointments; the studio also commits to these appointments.

We will offer a variety of courses, all mixed with combinations of private lessons, group lessons, and practice parties. Our course outlines will follow industry standards of recognized progression in dance, referred to as program dancing.
El Ritmo Dance also offers the ability for customers to take group class packages. These may be more affordable, and although take longer for advancement, might be more preferable to some of our customers.

In addition El Ritmo Dance offers something unique from other dance studios, which is a membership card.

There are three different memberships offered:
•The Basic, which allows unlimited admission to dance parties as well as discounts to special events.
•The Gold, which allows limited access to group classes, unlimited admission to dance parties, five party guest passes, and discounts on special events.
•The Platinum, which allows unlimited access to group classes, unlimited admission to parties, ten party guest passes, and discounts to special events. These memberships will last one year.

El Ritmo Dance will offer discounts for larger dance packages. All payments for dance lessons will be collected at time of purchase. Customers may be given 30 days to pay with a down payment of 50%. We will accept payment in the form of cash, check, or credit card.

5.3.1 Sales Forecast

This sales forecast is an estimation on the number of customers we acquire while open, and an average cost of lesson outlines. The Social Basics Introductory special is averaged at €25, but this may vary depending on the special running that month. The special is not an accurate count for the cost of lessons, and is used primarily to bring people who may be interested to our studio so that they may continue with more lessons. We are forecasting that we will sell 20 Introductory packages in our first month, and 30 each month there after, as this is what we can handle with the hours we have available.

The Social Foundation average package price is €360. It is an average price based on the assumption that students would buy a package containing 12 private lessons and 12 group lessons. We offer a 20% for paying in cash, and have therefore shown €300 for our package price to show the discount. We are forecasting to sell a social foundation dance package to 25% of the people who come to take the introductory special.

Bronze I is priced at €600, and is based on the assumption that students would buy this package with 19 privates and 25 groups. We offer a 20% discount to people who pay cash for their lesson, and show this in our forecast by making this package show at €500. We are forecasting to sell a bronze dance package to 50% of the people who bought the social foundation package.

Bronze II is priced at €720, and based on the assumption that students would buy a package containing 24 privates and 24 groups. We offer a 20% discount for paying in cash, and show this in our forecast by showing this package price at €600. We do not expect to sell any Bronze II packages the first couple of months. Starting on the third month we are forecasting to sell 50% of those that were in Bronze I.

Silver I and Silver II €810. These are both based on the assumption that the student buys a package of 27 privates and 27 groups. We offer a 20% discount for students who pay in cash, and have shown this in our forecast with our package being €675. Starting in the fifth month we are forecasting to sell at least two Silver I dance package per month. We have estimated that we will not sell any Silver II packages until the end of the first year of business.

We have kept our estimates low, knowing that we are not only a new business but a new type of business in this community, trying to break through with our marketing. Therefore, we are showing a 25% closing ratio for new students. That is saying that 25% of the customers who come in for the introductory special will buy the next level of dance, Social Foundation package. We then show a 50% closing ratio for existing student, 50% of Social Foundation customers will move on to Bronze I, etc. Mary’s previous sales results were 70% (out of every ten potential customers she sold a dance package to seven).

Memberships were forecasted to show that people would buy the Gold at €300 each. We forecast to sell an average of five memberships per month, with that average increasing to 10 during the peak months of November-February.

Miscellaneous sales include series group classes and kids group classes averaged at 10 people per class.

Weekly dances will be held each Friday night. We will charge €2.5 per person plus €1.5 if they come for the pre-dance lesson.

The Lendvorets is currently reported as bringing in about €15 to €20K per year in space rentals. We will continue to rent out this space and increase the advertising.

Other category includes one time privates lessons, special services (i.e. DJ service, lesson packages for special events, wedding packages, etc.).

6.0 Web Plan Summary

El Ritmo Dance has a Web page,, that is designed to provide a convenient way for people to discover our studio. For marketing purposes the Web page will be linked to other dance Web sites and, since it has dance in the title, it will show up on different search engines. Our students will be able to use the Web site to look up group class schedules, upcoming events, studio news, and lesson prices. Students and prospective students will also be able to contact teachers via e-mail. Teachers will have the Web site on their business cards, and it will appear on our ads to offer people a chance to look at the space, meet the teachers and check prices, and ask questions before they enter the studio.

7.0 Management Summary

El Ritmo Dance will be a very small company with the two owners, Marina Vanyushina and Genadiy Vanyushin, responsible for managing and directing all activities.

8.0 Financial Plan
We plan to use our own start-up cash to finance the business. The Lendvorets is a turn key building for this type of business, requiring very limited contract work for us to bring in. A kitchen space and office window are to be negotiated with the building owner. Our start-up requirements are business assets, teaching supplies, and advertising.
We want to finance growth mainly through cash flow.

8.1 Important Assumptions

The financial plan depends on important assumptions, most of which are shown in the following table as annual assumptions. From the beginning, we recognize that collection of payments for dance lesson packages is critical, however, not a factor we can influence easily. Interest rates, tax rates, and personnel burden are based on conservative assumptions.

Three of the more important underlying assumptions are:
•We assume that people in Rostov on Don will be interested in learning to dance and will give us a try.
•We assume that the area will continue to grow, as in the past, and at the projected rate of 5% per year.
•We assume that the Lendvorets will continue to be rented for events as in the past.
General Assumptions
2010 2011 2012
Plan Month 1 2 3
Current Interest Rate 10.00% 10.00% 10.00%
Long-term Interest Rate 10.00% 10.00% 10.00%
Tax Rate 30.00% 30.00% 30.00%

8.2 Projected Profit and Loss
Our projected profit and loss is shown on the following table, with sales increasing at a rate of 15% year over year. If we are able to meet our sales forecast, we will begin making a profit almost immediately. Traditionally in the dance business the slower months are in the mid-summer. However, the facility rental is higher in the Summer and should, therefore, supplement the slower teaching months.
