Preparation for an event

This document discusses the steps that need to be taken care of before an event can go online on Dance Reservations.

The schedule of the event needs to be decided. This includes:

  • dates, times and prices of the activities offered
  • performing/teaching artists
  • locations/venues

Discounts offered

  • early bird discounts
  • group discounts
