Hip Hop Tots Launch: Press Release

PRESS RELEASE: HIP HOP TOTS LAUNCH

For parents looking for a fun, constructive way to entertain pre-school children; dance instructors with a few spare hours in the mornings or children’s centres, hungry for fresh inspiration, watch this space! There is something special on its way…

From October 2015, Flexi, Robo and Flipz, aka the Hip Hop Tots® will be out and about, busting their moves to the beat and proving that it is possible to be both cool and cute.

hip hop tots

Hip Hop Tots® is designed for children aged 18 months to 6 years, and is much more than ‘just another pre-school dance class.’ By blending ultra-cool hip hop dance with music, storytelling and fun props, there is nothing quite like a Hip Hop Tots® experience.

Friendly and enthusiastic class instructors focus on providing a fully-rounded experience, engaging with young children’s innate sense of fun and play while promoting valuable life-affirming skills such as body awareness, self-confidence and creativity. Most important of all, by making movement fun and exciting, Hip Hop Tots® work to instil a lifelong love of keeping active. It’s the best cure for obesity there is – namely prevention!

HipHop Tots® believe that many currently available pre-school dance-based activities, for example those based around jazz or ballet, are too rigid and structured, working against children’s natural creative instincts and making movement seem like hard work. That’s why Hip Hop Tots® are firmly focused on fun first; technical perfection can come later! And unlike similar learn-by-play brands, Hip Hop Tots® appeals to both boys and girls, regardless of their economic and social background.

Hip Hop Tots® have also made it easy for suitably qualified dance teachers to get up and running with the programme, providing instructor training and a licence rather than a restrictive and expensive franchise. And whereas competing brands often appeal to a narrow section of the pre-school market with a popularity that can vary with the seasons, Hip Hop Tots® taps into the insanely popular hip-hop and street dance trends, supplying a healthy stream of eager to learn pre-schoolers throughout the year.

Hip Hop Tots®, through classes and children’s parties, also provide a unique way for children to meet new friends, learn social skills and get prepared for the journey into school itself, while parents are welcomed to participate in some activities (where they will get to know new people too).

As for children’s centres, nurseries and holiday resorts, incorporating Hip Hop Tots® adds an instant child-friendly welcome to attract more parents and refresh and invigorate a tired events calendar.

Dance Class Marketing in the New Economy

Marketing your street dance fitness class in a time of economic uncertainty will require you to plan very carefully. When people are jittery about the future, they are more hesitant in parting with their hard-earned cash, and will need convincing that they can’t get a better deal elsewhere.

Use Free Platforms – and Over-Deliver

Nothing in business is truly for free, but using social media has to be the lowest cost alternative to paid advertising that exists (with the exception of free word of mouth promotion).

So make the most of Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Pinterest or whatever other platforms you’ve signed up for by packing them with as much content as your time allows. Why? Because if there’s one sure thing to say about your customers, it’s that they will have questions. Whether they want to know what colour the dance floor is, how many people are in your dance fitness training class or what your phone number is they should be able to find the information quickly and easily. If they can’t find what they’re looking for in front of them, they might check out the competition’s page – or the moment to take action might just pass them by.

If you do decide to look into paid advertising, whether online or out in the local community, be very careful with how you spend your money. Ad sales people can be very persuasive (that’s their job), but you need to know that you are paying a good price to reach the right people, in the right area, in sufficient numbers.

Try to find out how many of your dance fitness certification ads will be circulated, where they will be seen and who they will be targeted at. A well-placed ad can repay its value several times over but may cost slightly more than a cheaper ad that doesn’t fit your needs.

Have you really checked out the competition?

Before you can sell your street dance training certification classes to prospective customers, you have to know exactly what it is those customers want – and offer it to them.

Sounds simple, but it’s easy to fall into the trap of measuring yourself only against the dance studio across town while completely missing the fact that all your potential students are enjoying the free ‘swim and dine’ offer at the local pool, or bulk ordering supplements from the new health shop promoting the latest diet craze from America.

Try to broaden your idea of what a competitor is. In reality, it is anything that competes for your members’ time – even (and perhaps especially) free activities such as going to the beach or sitting on the sofa watching CSI.

Next, jot down a list of advantages and disadvantages between you dance fitness course and your competition. Once you have done that you will have a clearer picture of the benefits you can highlight, while seeking to compensate for – or at least minimise – your challenges. For example, you might find that you can make up for a lack of car parking space by tweaking your class times to fit in with a low-price bus service.

By performing this exercise, you won’t be wasting time and money promoting factors that your target market are just not interested in.

Get Out in the Community

As mentioned earlier, free word of mouth publicity is gold dust in marketing, and you can do a lot to help get the message out there without spending a penny. First, by providing first class customer service and answering queries promptly you will increase the chances of members talking positively about your street dance training class and even recommending you to their friends and family.

Really get to know your members and find out what they do for a living and what their close relatives do. There may be opportunities for cross-promotion right under your nose.

Look at what’s going on in your community (fairs, sporting events, charity functions, etc.) and get involved, your Local Authority website is a good place to get started as well as your local newspaper. If you are qualified to provide dance fitness for kids – Street Fit Kids® classes you might consider providing a prize of a free dance fitness class for your local school fair raffle. Or you could perform a demonstration at a sporting event and get the audience to join in.

Whatever you decide to do, by making sure you spend your money wisely, you will increase the chances that people will invest their limited funds in a Street Fit® future with you!

Break the Routine – for Good!

Sometimes we get so used to the daily routine that it can become almost invisible. Then when we return from a holiday – or even a long weekend – we remember how restricting it is to have to get up early in the morning, travel to our place of work or study, put in a day’s shift and then travel back again. If we’re lucky, we might have enough energy left in us to spend an hour or two doing something we enjoy such as a Dance Fitness class before repeating the pattern the next day – and the next.

Have we got it the wrong way around? Yes, we all need to make a living, but sometimes we get so used to thinking of our ‘job’ and our ‘hobbies’ as separate things that we forget to look for opportunities such as becoming a Dance Fitness Instructor to combine the two. After all, a mixture of talent and intense interest makes for a potent force, one that can be harnessed to bring success.

One thing that can put people off turning their talent into a full-time career is that they can’t get used to thinking of themselves as business people. Perhaps they imagine all business owners to be shrewd number crunchers or suave diplomats and they feel they don’t measure up. In reality, there are all sorts of personality types striking out on their own, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.

To start out on the road to a rewarding career in the dance fitness industry, you don’t need to drastically transform yourself into the next Sir Alan Sugar or Deborah Meadon. You only need to add a few essential business skills (like planning, basic book-keeping, marketing and time management) to the skills and dedication you already have, the rest will come with experience. By the time you need to be thinking about complicated accounting, computer databases and the like you will probably be earning enough to employ an accountant or administrator.

How quickly you make the transition from employed hobbyist to self-employed business boss depends on your personal circumstances (how many hours you work, family commitments, financial status, etc.) but by making wise choices with how you spend your time and money (e.g. booking a day off work and investing the £285 to get your Street Fit® Dance Fitness Licence), you can start taking the little steps that will one day put you in the enviable position of being able to ditch the routine once and for all.

Welcome to The Street Fit Family

A massive congratulations to all the newest members of our Street Fit® family who attended our Street Dance Fitness course this weekend in Manchester! We received a lot of great feedback, such as how well the course was ran and how informative, helpful and inclusive the entire Street Dance Course was.

A big positive taken from the day was the amount of diverse dance instructors from different dance backgrounds with a wide range of varying ages, shapes and sizes. The array of instructors is always a testament to the street dance fitness course, with instructors boosting 25 years of experience in the Dance Fitness Industry to a brave entrepreneurial 18 year old who is just starting out.

It’s fantastic to see so many of our instructors taking the smart decision to invest in our SF Kids Licence, adding another sting to their bow and increasing earning potential no end. Many of our instructors are using the SF Kids brand in innovative ways to open doors that before they couldn’t by offering services such as –

– Kids Parties

– Working within Schools – Offering alternatives to PE lessons

– After school dance fitness classes

The Street Fit Instructor course is ideal for anyone 18 years and over looking to start their own street dance fitness business, currently we have a mixture of instructors from diverse backgrounds including Exercise to Music Instructors, Performing Arts Graduates, Street Dancers, Group Exercise Instructors, Freelance Dance Teachers, Choreographers, Gym Instructors, Personal Fitness Instructors and other dance fitness teachers and trainers.
