Millennium Dance Complex Opens Millennium, TOKYO
One of the crown jewels in the NoHo Arts District is Millennium Dance Complex. They have helped pave the way to making North Hollywood the dance training center both in Los Angeles and worldwide. So it gives the NoHoArtsDistrict dot com team great pleasure in announcing that Millennium Dance Complex is in fact officially going worldwide. Millennium will launch its international expansion by executing a Japan Master Franchise Agreement with Millennium Japan, Inc. The first Millennium Dance Complex is scheduled to open in Tokyo in December 2013. Over the next few years, at least seven Millenniums are expected to be in full operation in Japan.
In addition to opening the Millennium Dance Complex in Tokyo, Millennium Japan will be responsible for developing the Millennium brand in Japan and oversee day-to-day management of franchise operations. Millennium Dance Complex USA will provide the systems necessary for Millennium Japan to sell and oversee operations of Millennium franchises in Japan, including on-going training and support to Millennium Japan’s staff.
“Our goal is to spread the magic of Millennium worldwide and our master franchise relationship with Millennium Japan and opening studios throughout Japan is a fantastic start to our international expansion,” said Ann Marie Hudson, founder and co-chief executive officer of Millennium Dance Complex.
“We see dance as a natural extension of our music business, and there is no more recognizable or respected brand in instructional dance than Millennium,” said Takayuki Arinaga, Executive Director of Millennium Japan. “After thoroughly researching the instructional dance industry, we are confident the Millennium brand will become a great success in Japan.”
Millennium Dance Complex, founded in 1992 and based in North Hollywood, CA, is known as the preeminent commercial instructional dance studio in the United States. Millennium is home to some of dance’s best and highest-profile choreographers, including those that work with A-List celebrities and pop stars such as Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Usher, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and a host of others. Millennium’s best of breed dance instruction, celebrity clientele and commitment to customer service have distinguished it as an internationally-known brand in the growing dance industry and one that is ripe for rapid growth.
“The Millennium expansion means there’s a little piece and heart of NoHo in Tokyo,” says nohoartsdistrict.com publisher Nancy Bianconi.
