We've learned Ballas plans to open a slew of dance studios across the country, called the Mark Ballas Dance and Performing Arts Center. The first is set to open next week in Charlotte, N.C.
We're told Ballas and his business partner expect to have 50 centers up and running by the end of next year.
Our sources say Mark will be an active owner, visiting every location and working on marketing and curriculum. His dad Corky (the OG dancer in the fam) will certify the dance instructors at the various studios.
The dawning of the Ballas Empire is now.
