Is a Website Worth It For Freelance Dancers?

With physical dance studios shutting down, many individual dance instructors are exploring more freelance teaching options. Whether you are teaching via live-stream on social media, or through a video conference-calling service, investing in a personal website brings benefits for you and your students.

A Personal Dance Website Means More Control

Anyone can make a social media profile, but a website takes some planning. When you design your site, you have control over the layout of how your present yourself and your classes. Having this control helps you to communicate to your users exactly who you are, and your qualifications as a teacher.

Improved Communication With Your Students

There are many different types of dance businesses out there to be consumed, and while social media is a boon for reach, it can be difficult to be authentic in a static layout style or character limit. Posts about upcoming classes and other important information can get lost in social feeds. Your website can provide a place for students to find exactly what they need to take class with you.

My Choice for Simple Website Design

I personally love WordPress for making websites (That’s how I made this one). They are very user friendly, with enough features to start a simple website and/or blog, but also tons of extra potential I haven’t even needed to scale to (yet). WordPress offers free plans as well as some paid plans, and I have used both types of plan for class blogs, research studies, and other personal website projects.

If you do choose WordPress, please feel free to use my referral link, it will get you a $25 credit toward a paid plan.
