    Would like advice on how to handle manager of studio being verbally abusive to people I love my instructor and don't want to leave him but don't know how to deal with this manager

    Well if your instructor is an employee of this said manager - there's not much you can do other than take your money & time elsewhere.

    If your instructor is independent, find floor space to lease elsewhere. You'd be surprised how many places are willing to let you wear dance shoes on a nice wood floor.

    Is the manager the owner? If not, you could talk to the owner.

    No but he isallowed to run studio as owner is not hands on and has no clue how he is treating students

    Treating students badly seems to not be a good business practice.

    Cluelessness as to how business is being conducted also seems to not be a good business practice.
    Requiem and Mr 4 styles like this.

    Yes, treating me badly was the reason I left the last studio. Basic courtesy is not too much to ask for when spending thousands a year. I am not the only one that left... seems like bad business, but newbies are always showing up to spend their money. In an area where there isn't a lot of competition, people put up with a lot to keep dancing.

    Some studios thrive on a revolving door of newbies...

    There is something (at times) about the "I'm artistic" temperament. A little can go a looong way.
