Kate Buchan, a seasoned studio owner from Perth, WA, brings extensive experience in dance education and management across Australia and Canada. As a former senior dance specialist for the Department of Education and a Certified Sports Coach, Kate advocates for Safe Dance Practices and age-appropriate education.

Ruby Birch, a passionate dancer teacher with diverse training, joined forces with Kate after witnessing her studio's exponential growth to over 1000 enrolments. Ruby spearheaded the preschool dance program, which now welcomes over 500 dancers aged 2-5 through its doors each week, delving into early childhood education through dance.

With the studio nearing 2000 enrolments by 2020, it attracted interest from neighbouring industry leaders seeking insights. With a proven curriculum and a passion for creating professional standards in our industry, Kate and Ruby now share their methodology globally through Creative Dance Method (CDM), offering unparalleled support for dance educators committed to excellence. Trust CDM for top-tier guidance and resources to elevate your studio.

Erin, Studio Owner USA

Thank you Creative Dance Method. I was becoming so overwhelmed with planning our class content after giving birth to my second child. I have now been able to take a step back from this element of my business for the first time in 10 years and it feels incredible!"

Sophie, Dance Teacher WA

"My life saver for 2022, it was so great to have a planner made specifically for a dance teacher! I can't wait to get my hands on the 2023 one!"

Tracy, Studio Owner NSW

"I really enjoy the plans and the children are loving them! As a past kinder teacher I have always loved teaching young children but have always felt rushed in my planning while trying to run the business and I was feeling a bit stale. I am loving the new fresh ideas and plans! "
