Communication is key in running a successful dance studio, so we provide plenty of ways to help you do it more effectively. Our Parent Portal provides a one-stop-shop for parents to view account details, register for classes, receive important updates, schedule makeups and more! You can even send updates on student milestones to keep them informed about their child’s most recent achievements at your studio. 

Speaking of keeping parents informed, with our new AI-powered email generation tool, Zippy AI, you can save time and communicate more efficiently with parents through Jackrabbit Dance’s built-in email editor. Tell Zippy AI what you want to say, pull details from reports and searches and start communicating more effectively.

Though recital season is one of the most memorable and rewarding times of the year for dance studios, the amount of work that goes into each can quickly become overwhelming. Don’t worry though, we’ve got you covered there too. Jackrabbit Dance makes every step of the recitals easier with features like printable costume measurement worksheets that pair with our auto-sizing logic to help each dancer get a perfect fitting costume, a built-in costume fee collection, a recital lineup editor, and even a way to export that lineup information to Microsoft Word to create a recital program you can be confident in.
