Founder & CEO of the largest community of Dance Studio Owners in the world
Clint Salter is an award winning entrepreneur, business development strategist and best-selling author of 2 books. By the age of 16, Clint started his first business and by 28, he had not only founded and sold 3 companies but was also named The Youngest Senior Celebrity Agent in Australia.
Today, he is the Founder and CEO of the Dance Studio Owners Association: the largest community of Dance Studio Owners in the world. Clint has helped over 34,000 dance studio owners grow their business, impact their local communities and improve the lives of over 800,000 children through the programs and services he has created in DSOA.
"My business has thrived since I started working with Clint. We’ve grown by 30% and I can't imagine my life without him."
Clint gives “studio changing” advice on every call I’ve experienced with him. He inspires us to be our best and to keep reaching for more. I can't choose one thing Clint has taught me! Clint’s program is making me a better business leader and person and I see the same trickle effect happening with all of his members. Clint is a true gift to this industry and I will always be thankful for his guidance and leadership.
Prestige Dance Academy Inc. in Alberta, Canada
"There is no part of being a dance studio CEO that Clint has left out. I built my 4 years and younger program up to 100% capacity under Clint’s expertise and guidance."
Every time I get on a call with Clint, which is usually a couple times a week, I leave the call with a plan. I could be in a complete meltdown but when Clint opens his mouth pure business growth “gold” comes out. He has certainly taught this old dog new tricks that have allowed me to continue to move into this new era with confidence and gusto.
Backstage Studio Of Dance in New York, USA
"After 2 years with Clint, I had my first profitable year ever. I increased my lead conversion rate to over 60% I know and understand my numbers now, thanks to Clint!"
I have been in Clint’s mastermind for 5 years, so I’ve had the privilege of experiencing MANY 1-on-1 calls with Clint. The most recent call was about my finances. He gave me insight on how to lower my payroll as well as reduce some other high line items. With his guidance, I have been working diligently, line by line, and have been able to cut many expenses. I’m now projecting an extra 24k in profit thanks to Clint.

"Clint’s contributions alone have increased our profits by over 20% since we started working with him."
The implementation of Clint’s Student Attraction Matrix sold out tickets to our National Broadway Tour year after year. We’re talking 24 cities and over 1,500 students. Our annual Summer Program is the highest priced Broadway education program in the industry. Using Clint’s event profit formula framework we sold out 2 years in a row, which generated $1.5M for the company. Clint’s student generator amplifier helped us grow our audience by over 20,000 new subscribers. His CareFactor training increased our member retention by 45% and generated an additional $700,000.
Clint’s role in our company has been critical to the success and impact our company has made. Before Clint, I worked with three other business mentors, none of them were able to help us achieve even a fraction of the results we achieved by working with Clint.
Founder & CEO at The Broadway Collective, Broadway Performer and Director
"Before implementing Clint’s systems, I was flying blind. As the leading growth expert in the dance studio industry, Clint’s methodology and systems were exactly what I needed to create massive growth and impact in our company."
Clint helped me design a 5-day-challenge launch strategy that yielded over $30,000 in revenue. Clint’s custom membership deconstruction blueprint saved us over $500,000 in team costs and lost revenue, which was the most powerful process I have ever been through with ANY business advisor. Clint’s virtual event matrix helped me pivot my live events into a virtual one, and it was a huge success! The event has already generated $24,000 in a matter of weeks and is projected to bring in over $75,0000 in sales total. The system Clint helped me create through his training program amplifier process alone will produce $100K in annual recurring income in the next 12 months.

But above all else, Clint’s #1 mission is making a difference at home and abroad
Global Impact Projects: World Teacher Aid in Kenya
Clint is passionate about making a meaningful impact in the world and in 2016, he channeled that passion into action!
Within the space of 1 month, Clint formed a partnership with a brilliant not-for-profit organization, called World Teacher Aid.
Clint used his audience, networking and marketing expertise to raise funds to build a school in Kenya, Africa.
Through his vision, dedication and sheer determination, Clint provided invaluable education in an area where it, sadly, would not have been available otherwise.
Local Impact Projects: COVID-19 Response
Since March, Clint has been hard at work creating and disseminating crisis-specific web based-trainings and materials specifically tailored to Dance Studio Owners facing financial collapse due to COVID-19. In the wake of the initial closures, Clint hosted the 90-minute Studio Rise Workshop, which clearly demonstrated to thousands of Dance Studio Owners how to protect their businesses.
After that, Clint created the 50-page Virtual Studio Handbook, showing studio owners how to continue educating children safely from home. From there, Clint recruited 11 industry-leading guest speakers for the free Dance Studio Rescue Summit, where over 2,000 Dance Studio Owners learned how to keep their studios afloat and their students engaged during these uncertain times.
As a result of these resources, 73% of the DSOA community are currently running virtual programming and 60% are charging their dancers the same rate as their normal tuition. Clint and his team are honored and thrilled to know that their work is impacting the lives of not only studio owners, but children who love dance and their parents during these trying and uncertain times.
"Clint’s COVID-specific resources have saved my business."
I had only 3 percent of families drop during this difficult time.
Kaleidoscope Dance in Illinois, USA
"If not for Clint, I would have made a lot of mistakes back in March of 2020 as we were entering into the COVID crisis."
Thanks to him and his timely and sound advice, my studio has not only survived but I’m confident we will come out of this stronger than ever.
