DanceBiz

ThinkSmart Logo

Time is so precious these days and every second counts, which is why we designed DanceBiz – to help busy dance teachers like you get precious time back in your life by automating and streamlining your admin. It’s the perfect tool to help with all those tasks that just seem to take so long and will help you work smarter, not harder. Meaning you’ll have more time to focus on doing the things you love!
Today, more than 2,500 schools around the globe use our world-class software to manage their class bookings, management and admin. As a society member, you’ll receive a 14-day free trial* PLUS your first month free – and we’ll also give you a special discount on text messaging, too.
If you want to start saving time (and money) and stop spending time needlessly on business admin, just visit our website or email us at info@thinksmartsoftware.co.uk to get started.
