The Academy Club at Planet Dance Brochure


The Academy Club and Planet Dance | www.planetdance.com

Welcome to the Academy Club at Planet Dance Since we began in 2005, Planet Dance has built a strong reputation within the Dance Community for quality of service, wide product range and value for money. In our early years we dealt primarily with individual dancers and students, and of course this is still a significant part of our business. Over the last few years however, it has been our pleasure to have helped more and more Dance Schools and Colleges with their dancewear needs and we are proud to have become one of the market leaders in this area. In response to this ever growing demand, we have undertaken a comprehensive review of the needs and desires of the dance school community, and as a result, we are delighted to bring you ‘The Academy Club at Planet Dance’. Through this review and from your invaluable feedback, we understand that each school has a different requirement and yearns for a service that is tailored to their needs.

We are proud therefore that The Academy Club takes a new and unique approach to dance schools services, in the provision of a range of packages for you to choose from. We do hope that you enjoy looking through this Academy Club brochure and feel enthused about the benefits and services available. Planet Dance is committed to providing first-rate dancewear collections with a service to match and we look forward to assisting and supporting you. The Academy Club Team Planet Dance

Why Join The Academy Club – The Packages The Academy Club at Planet Dance aims to meet the differing dancewear needs of dance schools and colleges throughout the UK and beyond. We understand that each school or college operates differently and our products and services are uniquely tailored to meet your requirements. So whether you would like to completely outsource your uniform supply or simply wish to receive a discount no-strings-attached, Planet Dance have an Academy Package to suit you. Through our research and your feedback, we have identified 3 main categories of service requirement and have thus created 3 Club Packages to precisely support those specific needs. To help you decide which Package best suits you, we have outlined each category below.

Silver Package

Gold Package

Platinum Package

No Stings Attached

Providing a Platform for Profit

The Ultimate Stress Reliever

We understand that not all dance schools need a formal uniform, or they prefer not to be tied in to one supplier.

Would you like to add a profit stream to your dance school business, by selling dancewear products to your students? Then the Gold Package is for you.

Do you yearn for a little more time, but still want to provide your students with the very best in dancewear advice, service and value for money. Then the Platinum Package is for you.

As we are confident however that you will find what you are looking for at Planet Dance and you will enjoy shopping with us, we are happy to provide a Dance School Discount – no strings attached. Of course, we would need to verify your details, but nothing more is required to open an account.

In addition to a competitive Dance School Discount and general uniform supply, we also provide an in-house garment printing service, for dancewear, leisure wear and accessories, supplied to you at wholesale prices. By printing your school logo on these products, this popular service enables you to market your school, whilst creating an additional platform for profit at the same time. All we ask for in return, is a modest, one-off printing set-up fee, should printed merchandise be required. And what’s more, in addition to the benefits provided within the Silver Package, you will also be looked after by a dedicated Account Advisor and invited to exclusive Academy events.

We supply products directly to the school account holder, via our website or in store, as you prefer.

Find a Dance School Web Service Working together and supporting our dance schools and colleges is a fundamental part of the philosophy of the Academy Club at Planet Dance.

As Planet Dance is one of the highest ranking dance websites with search engines such as Google and Yahoo to name but a couple, you can be assured the visibility and effective marketing of your school. We will create a bespoke page for you on our website for all Academy Club members which can contain as little or as much information as you wish. From the general details of your school through to show advertising or class timetables, just let your account manager know what content you require and we’ll do the rest. And for Platinum Club members, we will also provide a premium listing, creating a hyperlink to your own website should you have one. With web links providing one of the best ways to raise your websites profile, you can look forward to more visitors to your site.
