I have worked in many corporate databases, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised when I started using The Studio Director. The dance studio I work for had already been using it for quite a few years when I became the studio manager. I was able to figure almost all of our daily functions in less than two days! The software is user-friendly, dynamic, and has great technical support! The staff are always friendly and prompt and have some kind of solution for most of our questions.

Our experience with The Studio Director has been fantastic! We love this program because it has saved us valuable time and money. We used to handle our enrollment with physical files were things would get easily lost or miss-filed, now we have a way of keeping accurate records of everything. Searching and tracking our enrollment numbers has never been easier and the enrollment in automatic payments has kept us accountable as well as our customers. Their customer service is some of the best I, personally, have ever received (Pam is awesome!). They respond quickly to any questions we have and their staff is very helpful, knowledgeable and kind.

I researched several dance studio software programs, and this one was the most comprehensive AND user-friendly. I received amazing customer service both before and after my purchase. Not only was I walked through my specific questions, but when I explained some of my studio needs, the rep I spoke with, Peggy, came up with a custom-made solution to my wishes. She knew the business well and was able to give me great advise and walk through the pros and cons of different ways to set up the software for my specific business needs. Her help was above and beyond what was to be expected.

Review Source: Capterra

I started with The Dance Academy 3 years ago so that is how long i've had studio director. I have a feeling studio director has awesome functionalities and capabilities but my biggest obstacle is that i don't know how to use them and i don't know what i'm not using. For day to day, the software is great. Reliable, relatively user-friendly, and makes registration easy for me. Here are a few areas i think could be improved: -building emails and email campaigns, i know there's a drip campaign feature but i tried and could not figure out how to use it. To pre-program our emails to send automatically would be super helpful -I do not want my clients to be able to click the 'do not send me emails' option upon registration because they end up missing out on important communications from us -i had to manually go through and delete over 1000 families from the system recently, could not believe i couldn't just filter a group via a tag and delete them all in bulk... instead, this took hours and hours of my time -From a customer perspective, registration experience could be easier, better looking, and i want control over the emails a customer receives upon registering. -Would be great if i could automate a customized 'welcome' email as well as an email that automatically goes out to everyone 1 month and one week before class starts to prepare them for class. My main wish would be for a studio director consultant to sit down with me, analyze our current use of the software, listen to everything we do, everything we wish we could do, and then teach us how we could be using the software better, show us things we don't know, and just make sure we are operating as efficiently and effectively as possible with the product. Sort of like a nice, thorough audit of our current usage followed by a tutorial to improve future use.

Who cares about the looks when running your studio is the main part. When talking to studio owners and dance teachers they tend to realize that running this business is a more difficult task than jumping on stage. This application gives you alot for not a really big fee. Schedules, presentations, costumer relationship (a.k. parents), and even merchandise selling.

I went with Studio Director when I opened my dance studio almost 7 years ago. Back then, there weren't as many choices for software. However, even as newer programs have emerged, I have no need for anything else. Studio Director meets all of our needs. I love the ease of use from both our login and the parent's. I love all the reports to help streamline and find things. I love the costume ordering help. I love the inventory and ability for an online store. I love the recital/performance planning ability. And, I love the customer service. I don't even use all of the features, but know that I could should I need to. I also think it is great that they are constantly updating it to make it better.

I am very satisfied with our choice to switch to The Studio Director.

I am still learning how to fully use some of the features, but Customer Service and Support is wonderful!!! Whenever I have a question I cannot figure out on my own, they are quick to reply to my emails. I do wish the program had a staff feature, not just for teachers, but for admin and assistant staff. I'd love to be able to track all my staff in one place. I also wish I could easily see item balances rather than running balances in the family ledger, but just today I learned from a webinar how to make that a little easier.

I frequently have questions on the best way perform various functions in the database. Customer Service is consistently knowledgeable and timely in their responses. I sincerely appreciate the lengths they go to in making sure the customer understands how to get the most out of the system. While the system is relatively user-friendly once you know the basics, having Customer Service there to help for the specialty functions is really helpful - especially Steve, Sharon and Pam.

I have been using Studio Director for nearly 8 years now and have seen this software continually improve over time. It is by far the easiest to use and navigate and by FAR the easiest company to get service from. We started using SD when we only had 180 kids and now we are over 1000. We could have never gotten to where we are today without you! Thank you Studio Director for always being there for us when we can't figure something out!

When we switched over to Studio Director I was worried that I wouldn't have support in changing my system of billing and running my studio. I shouldn't have worried because Studio Director has the most responsive support people ever. They always get back to us within a couple of hours and they help us understand things in a timely manner, which is very important to a busy studio. Thank you Studio Director!

We love that we email or call support and within 1-2 hours have a response from a customer service representative. They are helpful in setting up new rates on a yearly basis and offer excellent customer service complete with clear details of how to fix our concerns. They also have been receptive in taking into account our requests for updates and changes to the functionality of the system.

My studios' experience with The Studio Director has been fantastic! They helped with the transition from a different database, have a ton of resources readily available, and answer customer service questions quickly and efficiently. Billing, reporting, and keeping student files organized has improved with the use of The Studio Director.

I am very happy with Studio Director thus far and do love the improvements. With the latest update I have to comment that the colors are bad for me as very light and difficult to read for us in the office. If we could change those ourselves that would be great but I can't find a place to do this.

I have only just begun to use Studio Director this year. The biggest thing that I love about it is the amazing customer service. Not only are they extremely quick to respond to inquiries, but very informative and helpful. I am still learning about all that Studio Director has to offer but so far haven't had any major problems, it has been a wonderful tool in organizing my classes, dancers, and their information.
