What is Align?

ALIGN is an intimate & immersive 6-month mastermind for

established dance studio owners who crave connection &

expansion whilst striving towards $1mil success.

You may have heard me say, I was craving an experience with an intimate group of like-minded people for connection, expansion, and accountability for some time, and after finding one last year, it has been the best investment I’ve made in my business to date – by FAR.

As a result, my goal has been to create a similar experience but from a unique perspective that I’ve gained from being in the trenches (like you) for over 30yrs, creating this very specific mastermind for faster student, studio, self and revenue growth.

The mastermind is called ‘Align’ and I’m really excited about what it can be and do for everyone who joins when I bring an incredible group of studio owners together.

Happy clients

“I have been working with Jen and other high-level studio owners in the mastermind for a few months now and have quickly realized she is an invaluable resource in helping me achieve my business goals. Jen has provided me with practical and actionable advice in helping me develop a clear plan for success.

Both individual and group calls allow time to brainstorm ideas and come up with creative solutions to challenges. These calls provide me with the accountability,  insight, confidence, and support I need to stay on track and focused on my goals. 

I am grateful for the guidance and support Jen has provided throughout our time together, and I look forward to seeing what is yet to come.”

Why choose Align?

When you are ready to get serious in your business and take your studio to the next level, it’s all about creating a studio that will launch you to your next level.

I show you how to look at your business from the future and start strategically planning how to expand across all areas of your studio.

Having done it, you get insights from someone who is currently immersed in the industry, actively growing and experiencing the reality of what challenges are in front of us.

I went from 1 student to 1200, 1 studio to 6, and a team of 30+.

I have helped studio owners scale their business, increase their profit and step into their next level, and I will help you too. I give lots of hands on attention in this mastermind. You have step by step involvement in your studio from me. You get personal and individual guidance from me, plus an intimate community of ‘high-level’ studio owners who support one another and hold each other accountable.

Once you get to 250 students, the game changes. It’s now where you must start thinking outside the box, innovate, create, strategize and plan. It’s here where you will learn a lot faster and scale quicker.

Happy clients

“If you’re looking for someone to help guide you through your studio owner journey and help you excel in every way possible, then you seriously need to consider working with Jen.

Before working with Jen, I was overwhelmed and struggled to compartmentalise the many things on my to-do list. As most would know, there are so many different areas of business management that you need to consider, but the training and coaching gave me very clear and precise steps forward that I could actually follow.
Jen shares her knowledge and wisdom so selflessly and doesn’t hold anything back. She truly cares about you and where YOU want the studio to go and helps give the practical tools to make it happen.

As a result of her systems and strategies, I have been able to grow my student numbers higher than ever before this year and have also increased profitability across the business.

My biggest struggle as a studio owner is confidence in my decision making – so it’s been wonderful having someone to discuss pros and cons with before making big choices. Your experience means that you’ve tried/seen everything done in a million ways, so you can suggest ways of doing things that would suit my personal style well.

The process is quick and easy! I was nervous for our first session – but you quickly and easily determined where I was on my journey, and asked excellent questions to prompt me on where I’d like to go. Having the freedom to discuss what I feel would benefit me most on the day of each session is wonderful, but having you guide what I need to be doing short term has been excellent to keep me on track (not jumping way ahead and forgetting the little steps).

Absolutely loving it so far! It’s amazing having someone with so much experience in my corner, and I’m looking forward to continuing our sessions. I would highly recommend Jen to anyone looking to make their life easier, and goals bigger!


Dana – Applause Performing Arts

I started working with Jen just before I opened the doors to my dance studio. The first thing I felt when I met Jen was a huge sense of relief that I wasn’t in this alone. Working for yourself can feel incredibly isolating, and not having anyone to bounce ideas off is hard.

Dance Studio Empire is led by Jen’s passion and Knowledge and boosted by the wonderful community that she is creating in it. Jen’s trainings are always informative and full of many pearls of wisdom, and she is always very approachable and realistic with her advice and suggestions. With Jen’s guidance I am regularly increasing my enrolments and have tailored my offerings so that they suit what is best not only for my customers, but also for me and my family.

I am looking forward to a long professional relationship and continued growth with Jen’s support. If I could start all over again, would I work with Jen? 100% yes! If you are sitting on the fence about making this investment, jump on in – you won’t regret it.
