More on Clint 
Dance has been a part of his life for over 20 years. From starting dance classes at the age of 9 to creating and selling a dance studio at the age of 16 and currently helping other dance studio owners build their dream studios through our business growth programs and events, this has been my passion.

Aside from creating and selling 3 businesses by the time he was 28, he has also been a Senior Celebrity Agent for 5 years managing top media and television personalities as well as being the touring manager for the Tony Award Winning musical Jersey Boys. 

But at the end of the day, all roads lead me back to what he does best and what is my absolute passion in life...helping dance studio owners become more profitable and make a bigger impact in the lives of their staff and dance families.
