5 reviewers had the following to say about DanceStudio-Pro's pricing:
Sorry company doesn’t care about their customers.
Used to be price now that has been taken away.
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.

basic functionality around class management, cool feature to allow you to run an info-tv screen in the studio, responsive (email only) service
This company waited to sign everybody up for the 2019-2020 dance year and then tripled their prices. Do not trust them or give you their money. They are run by a private equity fund extracting all profits and the expense of value and service. They also refuse to speak over the phone. There are better alternatives elsewhere.

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
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.
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.

This is by far the best dance studio software on the market. It has everything I've ever needed, and then some. Myself and my staff love having the ipad class manager. Through the class manager, we are able to stay up to date on attendance, and lesson plans by class. We are even able to immediately access both class and recital music, as well as view the costumes for each class, all with one click. This helps us stay inspired and keeps us from falling behind. It is also an excellent tool for substitutes to pick up where the instructor left off. We download each week's current choreography, and add new counts for the following week's lesson plans. I don't like to make collection calls, because I'm not a fan of confrontation. The Robo-Dial feature makes it much easier. Not to mention, it has helped me keep my sanity. Bonus - It's user friendly, and cheaper than any other company. Another bonus.... The customer support is very prompt, and helpful. My questions always get answered within hours... not days. Over the years, we have tried Jackrabbit and MindBody. Honestly, no other company comes close to Dance Studio-Pro. This software has renewed my love for dance. As an artist, I love teaching, but don't always love the aspects of business management. It has truly been a breath of fresh air, and has given me the chance to actually be an artist again.
I checked into many studio management programs and used two prior to DanceStudio-Pro. It is far better than any I have used or looked at, more affordable, and has the best customer service I have found. One program tried to charge me to fix issues that I found in their system. One said that they couldn't make their system work to meet my needs, one said that they could customize it, but it would cost me a couple hundred dollars. With DSP, when I've run into things that didn't quite work with my method of doing things, they have been great about helping me find a way to make it work. DSP accommodates my tiered multi-class discounts in a way that no other program did. The customer support at DSP is second to none. They respond quickly and have answers. They have gone above and beyond what I even expected to help me understand the intricacies of the program and to make it work for me. I am thrilled not to have to spend the hours I have spent in previous years recording income, generating spreadsheets and being frustrated because I am a dance instructor, not an accountant. I love the freedom DSP has given me from that, the way the program is customizable, and their patience with me when I don't understand something or make a mistake. I especially appreciate that if I do make an error or run into an issue, they help me find the solution to it. I really can't speak highly enough about DSP and their support! The other "bigger names" really can't hold a candle to DSP, in my opinion!
