Dance Instructors Attend Dance Teacher Summit Courtesy of Jackrabbit Technologies

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Jackrabbit Technologies, leading provider of online class management software for youth activities centers, is thrilled to help two dance instructors attend the Dance Teacher Summit taking place in New York City August 1-3, 2014. Dance Teacher Summit is almost an annual “mecca” event for owners and instructors because it focuses on continuing their learning experience as teachers. They have opportunity to gather with peers and industry leaders from around the world to hone their skills, learn and rejuvenate their senses.

Jennifer Smith from Dance Expressions in Friendswood, Texas and Peg Moore-Maioriello, Artist-in-Residence at Transcend Dance Inc., in Mt. Vernon, NY will receive free admission to the Summit courtesy of Jackrabbit Technologies as part of Jackrabbit’s support of dance studios around the world. Peg was not going to be able to attend this year’s Summit previous to winning the ticket. Jennifer is giving her ticket to one of her studio’s instructors, Becky Caudle, so that she will be able to attend DTS. [Read more about our winners at]

The winners comment.
Jennifer Smith: “This is an important conference for instructors. It’s one of very few opportunities that enables us to learn from other instructors and owners outside of our local area and from the who’s who in the industry. I’m thrilled that our winning ticket gives one of my instructors the opportunity to attend the Summit too. We think of it as continuing education and improvement of our ‘product’ which is teaching. It is fantastic that our software provider is so generous to provide this opportunity. It helps more instructors to focus on improving themselves and connecting with the industry.”

Becky Caudle: "I want to give my students the best, and the Dance Teacher Summit has the best curriculum and teachers. I am excited to be able to transfer the knowledge to my students and give them the best training they deserve! Thank you, Jackrabbit!"

Peg Moore-Maioriello: “The Summit is of great importance to me. I’ve missed it only once since it originated! This event is like heaven for a dance teacher! It brings you face-to-face with the industry globally and brings in resources that – even for a NYC girl – are extraordinary. I’m almost speechless that this ticket will allow me to live my dream of taking lessons from Twyla Tharp. She’s is one of the teachers and dancers I most admire. I appreciate Jackrabbit’s support of our industry through this opportunity and their generosity in sending me to this year’s Summit.”

And comments from Jackrabbit.
Julie Rankin, Marketing Director: “We’re proud to be able to help dance instructors attend DTS and it is especially meaningful when it provides opportunities that would not be possible without help. These are the teachers who make the dance world a better place for the next generation of young people. They are in rare positions to instill a lifetime of passion for the art of dance in their students.”

Mark Mahoney, Cofounder and President: “We've always focused our business on activities and initiatives that help our customers to be better at developing young dancers. We do this day to day with our software but Dance Teacher Summit provides us with the opportunity to do help out in a different way and I think that is exactly what we should be doing.”

While Jackrabbit Technologies provides several business and class management solution brands for youth sports and activities centers to better manage and grow their businesses, its JackrabbitDance brand offers several features, including costume and recital management, that are geared specifically to the needs of dance studios. The software provider will support Dance Teacher Summit as a content provider in conference sessions and as a exhibitor.
