Shut Up & Dance: Revolutionising the way you exercise

We are super proud to finally announce the launch of our very own Shut Up & Dance App and new website!  Rewind to our very first pop-up course in Wellington at the start of 2016 and there's no way we would have thought we'd be releasing an app to revolutionise the way that people engage with fitness!

Our new booking system makes attending classes really easy - and we've always been firm believers in the idea that exercise should be fun and stress free, so we've made scheduling fun into your life a simple and seamless process with our new app or online booking system. Download the app from the App Store if you have an iPhone or from Google Play if you have an android. From here, you'll want to create an account, so follow all the prompts to complete your registration. Following that, you'll be able to book yourself into single or multiple classes at the click of a button, as well as cancel them, or add yourself to a waitlist if you've missed out! Either attend casually and as you please by clicking the 'casual visits' tab, or commit yourself to something short-term by booking yourself into a course. You can view our upcoming courses via the 'courses' tab on the left hand side on the app, and view the status of your account by clicking 'my account.'

If apps aren't your thing, have no fear! Our online booking system is also seamless and easy to use, wether you're on your phone, tablet or desktop. Click 'Book' from the main menu and choose your class (if you want to pay as you go) or course if you want to register for our 6 week course. Click the mint coloured 'book' button and follow the prompts. If you're not logged in, you'll be asked to sign in or create an account (if you've registered through the app, it'll be the same login). Once you've booked, click the 'My Account' tab at the top or bottom of our website to view the status of your account, including upcoming classes, your attendance history, how many passes you've got left or if your account is in credit etc.  This is where you can cancel classes, update your login/credit card details and email subscription preferences.

Fan of the concession pass? Grab a 10 Trip here and your sessions will be credited to your account, making booking for a class really easy, wether it's through the website or the app!

We always recommend registering before you turn up to the class, so that we can find you in the system and sign you in with the tap of your finger. Look for our iPad when you arrive at the class to check yourself in. If you have the app, you can sign in from your phone!

We've also introduced a cancellation policy, meaning that if you don't show up to a class, you'll be charged the cost as if you went* (because we have often have waitlists and your space could have gone to someone else). Canceling is really simple though too! From the app, click 'my classes' and tap the red cancel button, or if you're online, click 'my account,' 'schedule' and cancel from there. *You'll be charged if you cancel with less than 2 hours before the class start time.

Got questions about how to book, register, sign in? Perhaps you've got some feedback for us! Email and Abby will be more than happy to answer your questions (or schedule a time to talk on the phone if you'd like real-time help).

*high five* to our Shut Up & Dance family. You're the boom to our shakalaka.

Abby, Lesa & Clair
