About The Streamlined Studio

Dear Busy Dance Studio Owner,

My name is Micaela, Founder and CEO of The Streamlined Studio and I was once in your shoes. I spent my days responding to inquiry emails about classes, chasing parents down for tuition, following up with trials that came in, teaching classes, greeting everyone who came in, ordering costumes, listening to voicemails about a lost ballet shoe or why little suzie can’t come in today… the list goes on.

Post-it notes GALORE.

Checklists FOR DAYS.

And ultimately leads were falling through the cracks no matter how hard I tried. 🙁

There was just so much going on that it felt impossible to keep up with.

Then one day I found my magic wand. I started out by creating a simple Welcome email how to automate that email as soon someone enrolled. 

FINALLY! No more writing how ‘We’re glad you’re here! Now here is the policy and dress code.” And then forgetting to attach the actual .pdf docs. 

As soon as this was set up, we expanded to a completely automated onboarding process that made every student feel like a rockstar which is how we’ve always wanted to greet them.

From there, automating whatever we could became an addiction. We have a handful of automated systems that run nearly everything behind the scenes from booking trials, following up with trials, rescheduling trials, to asking for referrals from our happiest customers so that we can focus on the the students and parents right in front of us while we’re at the studio and our families while we’re home.

Our mission at The Streamlined Studio is to help you get your sanity and time back, for REAL. No fluff, no theory, just systems that work.

You don’t have to guess or figure anything out – we set it all up for you and hold your hand every step of the way as you learn to work with our tools.

Take a minute to get to know my INCREDIBLE team below and feel free to contact us in the chat if you have any questions about how we can help you Streamline Your Studio!

Your Biggest Fan,
