What is Danceflavors?
Danceflavors is a platform for dance schools and dancers. Besides the possibility to present your profile or course program online, the focus is on communication and the intuitive and partly automated flow of information. The heart of the platform are the courses, workshops and events where both parties come together. In some cases individual WhatsApp groups are still being set up by instructors or the students themselves to provide a framework for the exchange of information.
This is where Danceflavors comes into play as a platform and gives each course a framework and overview of content, participants, changing course information. In the case of a course failure, many dance schools still have to inform their students through various communication channels. Danceflavors offers 1-click-solutions, which takes into account the individual communication possibilities of the dancers and enables the automatic distribution of the information on the different communication channels.
But this is only one of many other features that are designed to make life easier for dance schools and dancers. Especially in the organizational area Danceflavors offers dance schools a powerful tool that will digitalize the complete back office after its completion. For dancers, automated waiting lists, additional information accompanying the courses or a dance partner search are interesting and will therefore be an integral part of Danceflavors.
One of the greatest challenges of the dance scene is its complexity and individuality. Depending on the dance school or dance organization, the structures and processes differ enormously, so that Danceflavors aims to be as adaptive as possible and still create a common denominator. Because at the end of the day there is only one thing that matters for all dancers: dancing! And Danceflavors creates the framework for everything else!
What is the current status?
The Danceflavors project is currently in an early development phase with basic functions that are already being tested by dance schools. With Angular and NestJS, we are initially developing a web application or progressive web app that can also be used on mobile devices. Later on, we will also develop native mobile apps, which will meet the complexity of the whole platform. During the development process we rely on close cooperation with dance schools, organizations, dance teachers and dancers who are very active in the scene, so that we can develop custom-tailored solutions.
Currently under development: automatic waiting lists
Explanation: especially in couple dancing it is difficult for all those who do not have a steady partner. For dance schools or other organizers, it is particularly difficult to ensure a balanced ratio of “leaders” and “followers” at individual events such as workshops. To solve this problem, we develop automated waiting lists so that individual dancers can only register as “leaders” if there are already individual “followers” on the waiting list. Otherwise the single dancer will be placed on the waiting list until another follower registers.
