Frequently asked questions
- What is dance studio software?
Dance studio software is wellness technology that assists studio owners and dance instructors in managing their operations and creating memorable experiences for clients. Dance studio software simplifies class scheduling, powers payment processing, streamlines member management, and automates other aspects of your day-to-day, so you and your team will have more time to focus on the students in-studio. It’s built to help you grow, so your dance business will always have the tools and support team it needs to expand when you’re ready. Plus, dance studio software is cloud based, so all it takes is an internet connection to get access to your most important business data.
Although there are a few on the market, the best dance studio software solutions provide businesses with more ways to connect with their students and create memorable experiences. The software has marketing tool options like automated email and text messages that send to the right clients at the right time, as well as review and referral programs, lead management systems, and other ways to grow your business. Combine those features with software add-ons like a branded mobile app or an on-demand virtual library, and your dance studio will be the talk of the town. The number of features included in dance studio software depends on the chosen package, so review the fitness pricing page or consult with a rep to find the package that fits your dance studio’s needs.
- How does dance studio software help me manage clients?
Keeping student details and memberships organized can be pretty complicated, but dance studio software makes it easier than ever to manage clients and their most important information. When your business is run with studio management software, all of your students’ payment info, preferences, class history, and more are stored in easy-access client profiles, so the details you need to create personalized experiences are never more than a few clicks away. Clients can log in using their own customer portal to update card details and contact info, and the software automatically notifies staff of upcoming milestones like birthdays and first visits. There’s even a progress tracking system built directly into the software, so instructors can take notes and pick up class right where they left off.
- Can I teach dance classes online with dance studio software?
Yes, Mindbody dance studio software can help you expand your community and deliver more value to members by offering your dance classes online. When you offer your classes virtually, it’s like opening your own online dance studio, as you’ll be able to reach dancers worldwide through a new medium. It’s easy to set up and simple for your team, and clients can book and pay just like they would for a live dance class. Plus, you won’t have to hassle with any third-party programs. You’ll still have all of your usual class management features, as well as the ability to record sessions, offer multiple views, and get detailed reports on your online offerings.
You can also offer your dance classes online to members by creating an on-demand library in your dance studio software that students can access 24/7. You'll have the option to fill the library with the recordings of your live stream classes or pre-produced dance content, and clients will enjoy an easy way to practice their moves directly in their living rooms. You can even combine these on-demand videos with the marketing tools in your dance studio software to promote your virtual services to a larger audience.
- Does dance studio software also handle payment processing?
Yes, dance studio software integrates your payments processing with the platform that powers your business, so every transaction runs directly through your studio management software. Whether students (or parents) want to pay on your website, on mobile, at the front desk, or on the go with the Mindbody business app, your dance studio software handles everything in a single location so your admin processes are easier. The dance studio software also links payment preferences, transaction history, and card details to client profiles for easy, contactless checkout. You can set up simple autopay memberships in your software to keep recurring revenue flowing, and use Mindbody’s Card Updater feature to automatically update expiring card info. There are even additional point-of-sale hardware options that work with your dance studio software for a more conventional checkout experience. Plus, your integrated payments processing system gives you easy access to your studio’s most important data, so you can pull user-friendly reports to find trends in your sales figures.

- Can dance studio software help me launch a mobile app?
Yes, dance studio software can give you the tools and support to launch a branded mobile app for your studio on iOS and Android. Offering an app for your dancers increases your brand exposure, keeps them connected to your business, and gives them another way to experience your services. Students will be able to book classes, access their profiles, and more, and you’ll be able to keep them up-to-date with promotional offers and news sent using push notifications. If you have an online dance studio library, you can host your on-demand content on your app as well, giving clients access to your dance content whenever they want and wherever they go. Plus, it’s easy to get the app up and running. We'll design it with your logos and colors, you’ll have the chance to review our design, and we’ll help place it in app stores for students to download—with continuous updates included.
