About the event

Teachers, are you already in business or planning to start your own business? Contemplating a change in career or setting up a freelance career? Perhaps you're transitioning from employment to self-employment or returning to the work place? This online Dance Matters! presentation is for you!  

The presentation will last about 1½ hours and the content of the presentation and its principles can be applied to whichever country you might work or run a business in. Covering three topics, chosen from a member’s survey, there will also be time set aside for a Q & A at the end.


  • Being in business: sole trader or limited company
  • Charging VAT and how to approach it
  • Approaches to setting fees as a freelancer and a school

Learning outcomes: 

  • An understanding of the business structures available
  • An exploration of the advantages, disadvantages and differences between sole trader and a limited company
  • An introduction to VAT, its applicability, and exemptions available
  • An introduction to fee setting and potential methodologies available to businesses and freelancers

The learning outcomes and practical examples are intended to provide a general overview and a pointer in the right direction, and as all businesses differ, attendees are strongly encouraged to seek the services of an appropriate professional person before making any decisions.

The presentation is given by Richard Thom, a trustee of BBO and former Director of Finance at the RAD between 1988 – 2015. He delivered both initial and continuing professional development to students, teachers and members through business courses, lectures and conferences during this time.

Join us on 14th February!

Special offer: Richard's book, Dance into Business ® (a how-to-guide for dance students, teachers and professionals which arose from his experience and interaction with dance teachers) is available at the special price of £12 including P&P for UK deliveries until 21st February 2024 - registered attendees only.
