Having just one stream of income is easily becoming an outdated lifestyle. Online businesses have presented a reliable means of passive income but who says the talent of creative dancing cannot fetch you some bucks in your account too?
You can build an image online with your dancing shoes on and monetize the art online using various social media platforms with millions of people as your audience.
9 Ways to Earn Passive Income as a Dancer

Ensure the course is compressive enough to get people dancing without needing to contact you. Skillshare and Udemy are platforms that make your course to be accessible, that is if you are signed on there

Social media has the biggest domiciled audience on the internet.
So if you come up with great and unique content, your followers will inadvertently grow to thousands and possibly millions of people.
