A Message From Lauren Wingenroth, DBW's New Editor in Chief

Hello, Dance Business Weekly subscribers! You may have noticed a new name on our masthead: I'm the new editor in chief of Dance Business Weekly and Dance Teacher, and I'm excited to meet you.

When Dance Business Weekly launched last year, we couldn't have imagined how much our world would change in such a short time, or just how urgent our mission—that of ensuring the health and sustainability of the small-dance-business economy—would become.

I feel this urgency deeply, and I hope to continue bringing you the tips, tools and inspiration you need to not just survive, but thrive.

I look forward to getting to know one another better. You can reach me at—my inbox is always open for questions, ideas, concerns and stories.
