Are you ready to step up to the next level of success for your studio?

Your programs have been developed with a passion for pedagogical excellence. The quality of your teaching is second to none. Now it’s time to bring the same level of excellence and professionalism to your studio leadership and studio business, allowing more students to experience the enriching programs your studio provides.


Our focus will be on building an inspirational, educational and engaging brand for your studio through a strategic marketing plan that connects and converts. The heart of the process is to build a systemised studio that enrols new students on autopilot and retains them for years. By building a team who are as passionate and invested in the studio as you are, your studio will evolve into a thriving studio that provides you with both the freedom and personal fulfilment you’ve always desired.

From our initial strategy session, weekly calls, comprehensive curriculum and extensive resources, live retreats, quarterly planning summits, accountability systems and continual support, we’ll be here to help you take your business to the next level.

Within 2 years, you’ll be astounded at the changes in your studio- and in yourself.

CEO + Founder Studio Expansion

Studio Evolution is my tribe, my safe space, my place to go for new ideas and innovation, and where people will speak the truth in a spirit of encouragement not judgement. I now consistently have over 1000 students enrolled, up 5% on last year whilst reducing my work week by 8 hours. I have a life outside of business.

– Kathy Morrison, Kathy’s Music.



It is our belief that studio owners are some of the hardest working, yet most isolated people on the planet. In a hyper-competitive industry, there are very few places you can turn to for open expert guidance and advice.

Here at Studio Expansion, as leaders in this field, we know how integral that and most importantly having an acute level accountability is important for your studio.  

You certainly can’t talk to the studio down the road and your hubby’s eyes start to glaze over when you talk about the studio too much. What is needed is a place where you can get real advice from people who understand studio business.

Studio Evolution is the place.



The fact is, you can’t do it alone. Many studio owners struggle with consistently attracting new students, even though they’re trying every new thing under the sun! The reality is, it’s a clear strategy (not tactics) that is essential for lasting and increasing success.

By being guided through a very specific 2-year curriculum tailored to meet the exact needs and challenges for modern studios, you’ll watch your studio blossom as you share your passion with more students faster than ever before, whilst curating a business that is smooth to operate. You will feel the transformational change in you and the business…

What Our Members LOVE About Studio Evolution:

I went from working a 60 hour week to 25 hours a week. My mission and systems at the studio are streamlined and sophisticated. I have more time to do the big thinking and have peace of mind.

-Rishell O’Brien, Defy Gravity Dance Co.

I increased my salary FIVE FOLD, gained 200 new enquiries in 6 months from the Studio Evolution autoresponder strategy and am making 50k profit on recital alone.

-Carmen Siegel, Studio E.

“Studio Evolution is my lifeline. I have increased revenue by 30% and have gained complete clarity in the direction of my studio business.”

-Fiona Donaldson, FSDance

-Adam McDougall, Mosman Dance Academy

-Martin Bathold, Arthur Murray, Sherman Oaks

What is I miss some of the content or I'm away during the year?

The great thing about Studio Evolution is that you won’t miss a thing. All of the curriculum Content is stored in the Studio Evolution Vault- a private members area. You will have lifetime access to all course materials. If you are travelling, you simply log in to catch up when you are back! If you miss one of your monthly calls, simply contact our Concierge and we will be able to reschedule your call at a convenient time.

My studio is quite unique, will this course work for me?

The wonderful thing about this curriculum is that it provides a framework for a scalable and profitable studio that has been proven to work across many different studio models. Adult studios, early childhood programs, performing arts academies- all have prospered in this program and we are 100% confident this will be the perfect solution for you too.

Can I participate in this course with my business partner?

Absolutely! We know that we’ll achieve momentum in your studio much faster if we’re all on the same page. By doing this course together, you’ll be more motivated and supported to achieve your goals and make the magic happen! Two people implementing is better than one!

Where do the live meetings take place?

The retreats take place in both Australia and USA twice per year. In Australia the events are held in Sydney, at a gorgeous park side hotel overlooking the harbour. In the USA, retreats are held alternately in Orlando,FL and San Diego, CA. Although we love seeing our students in person, we realise it’s not always possible to travel. That’s why we offer a virtual option of viewing a live stream feed of the event from the comfort of your own home- all you need is an internet connection! Our students around the world greatly appreciate this option.

It sounds great, bit I think I want to implement a few things before I start...

It has been our experience that when students have implemented changes in their business before joining the program (EG revamping their website), once they discover our strategies always wish that they had had our guidance earlier on. With the support of expert mentors giving you specific, step-by-step advice on best practice studio management and marketing, you will get where you want to be faster and with more ease and joy.

How do I know if I am at the right state to join?

Studio owners who enrol in Studio Evolution know that something needs to change. They cannot continue as things are and decide that they are committed to transforming their studio- and they need expert guidance, step-by-step and accountability to make that happen. By filling in the application form, you’re taking the first step towards taking back the reins of your studio.
