DanceStudio-Pro

Cloud-based dance studio management software.

About DanceStudio-Pro

DanceStudio-Pro is a cloud-based solution that enables dance studios to streamline student registration, sales, scheduling, and more operations. Professionals can utilize the platform to sell tickets for events such as dance recitals, workshops, or summer camps and accept payments via credit cards in real time.

DanceStudio-Pro allows studio owners to track teachers' certifications and work history and send SMS or email reminders about upcoming classes. It lets users manage the student database, registrations, costumes, and assignments, view fee balances, and communicate via phone, text, or email. Professionals can utilize the solution to handle classroom processes, waitlists, and multi-currency online payments, maintain progress notes, track student attendance, and more. Plus, administrators can track costume inventory using barcodes and gain visibility into stock details through reports.

DanceStudio-Pro’s Recital Wizard helps organizers manage activities related to dance recitals, such as planning act roles, choosing music, assigning stage positions, and more.

The platform lets users automate recurring payments via credit cards, eChecks*, and automated clearing house (ACH*) systems.

To streamline communication between administrators and customers, the DanceStudio-Pro Parent Portal app is downloadable from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. The app has all the same functions as the web-based Parent Portal, with the added convenience of having it downloaded directly on a smartphone. The app is free and will allow customers to register, pay, access their schedules, etc.

With the new tier of the software, DanceStudio-Pro Premier, users have access to additional features. One feature includes a two-way messaging app named Studio Chat. The app allows dance studio owners to have two-way communication between parents, groups, teachers, classes, dance seasons, and users. For parents, Studio Chat is housed inside the DanceStudio-Pro Parent Portal app on their smartphones. Parents can enable push notifications to be notified about new chat messages.

Another key feature of the DanceStudio-Pro Premier upgrade is the Zapier Integration. The Zapier Integration allows studio owners to push studio data from DanceStudio-Pro to 5,000+ other software including Keap, Quickbooks, Xero, and more and build reports that fit their studios' unique needs. Administrators can have an event in DSP trigger automations in other software, eliminating many tasks that were previously executed manually.

DanceStudio-Pro is a very complete and robust tool, available in its web version and a mobile application, it stands out from other programs available in the market thanks to its functionality and that it is easy to use, it improved notably my efficiency as a dance teacher since it allowed me to establish a better organization of my classes and students, the experience that I obtained since I began to use it has been wonderful and it has allowed me to increase my portfolio of clients

Pros

It offers the possibility to efficiently manage your dance classes, customers, attendance records or automation of that billing process, online registration, scheduling, however at the personal level the feature that I use most and the one I like best in this program is the management of recitals, which together with the mobile application of the program allows me to manage my business in a simple and efficient way, so I devote more effort and concentration to the man hours used in the realization of the dance classes that in the administrative part , which I find great additionally has a very intuitive interface so it does not require learning curve. Another aspect to highlight is its price, it is very affordable so it can be used from small businesses or personal ventures to large dance academies.

Cons

One limitation is that its mobile application is only available for iOs operating systems (iPad, iPhone and iPod.), I would like an update to expand its compatibility with the Android system.

Greedy company

Sorry company doesn’t care about their customers.

Sorry company doesn’t care about their customers.

Pros

Used to be price now that has been taken away.

Cons

They have just raised the prices which is about the only thing that made their program good. They try to push their customers to make choices that only benefit them and not the customer for example limiting merchant processors that are available. Also they just planned a price hike doubling some of our monthly fee to them.
