    well let's see ...
    I have attempted to help at the studio ie: marketing, web, etc ... but atlas ... a no go there ... apparently well staffed.

    Um ...shoes are definitely an option. but would like to sell ray rose, supadance and aida and actually have a stock so people can purchase them right then and there so no waiting. Also sell practice clothes too. Totally going in this direction. Could be a market for it here in MD.

    I can not at this point make dresses. though would love to ... I can stone the heck outta a dress though. :D

    Starting to get into the whole web design thing for smaller compainies that want to promote themselves.

    Something will give ... eventually.

    Persistance is key eh?

    Well - Jobs? Absolutely. Dancing? You betcha. In men? no. ;)

    If your studio won't staff you for anything, I'm sure they welcome a helping hand... decorations, cleaning, whatever they need. If you've already been doing that, I'm sure they appreciate it. No worries, an opportunity will present itself sure enough.

    You'll find a job in dance, just be patient and I'm sure you'll find something better than cleaning toliets. How bout you stone my dresses? Warning: this is not a well paying job, just girl talk and fun company.

    I will be your first customer. I hate that there isn't a good ballroom retail store in the MD/DC area. There is definately a need for it.

    I would totally pay for somebody to stone for me . . . not that I'm too lazy to do it myself, just . . . I would probably make a total hash of it!

    Emerald Dancer, I am curious what your field of expertise is now. You mentioned web design. Suggestion, if you are thinking of doing shoes give a lot of thought to how you would sell them, before you jump.. I would be happy to chat with you PM anytime. We are in different areas so I am happy to share. I have gone the shoe route on a small scale and now currentlty have over 300 pair in stock. It grows on its own
    Persistence is key, but planning is as important.

    I was going to suggest getting dancerman in here.

    I'm doing the receptionist thing. I don't clean the toilets (though I do stock the toilet paper.) It's not my full-time job, though.

    Dance related work.

    I just thought I would ask how your thought process is working on this?
    I hope you continue to maintain your enthusiam for entering the dance industry. I also hope that the info we shared via PM was somewhat of a help. It really is great getting involved in something we have a passion for, no matter how difficult it may seem to decide to make the jump.
