VAMP Software for Circus

VAMP is a web-based studio management system designed for circus schools but applicable to other fitness-based businesses.

VAMP was designed and built by Beverly Sobelman, founder of Versatile Arts in Seattle. We are not a big software company, just a  member of the industry trying to make things better for other studios. You won't have a giant support team at your beck and call, but you will have a person who understands your needs.

But wait...there's more!

VAMP also comes with VAST, the Versatile Arts Skills Tracker.

VAST is a framework with which studios and instructors can define a structured curriculum and then track their students' progress against that curriculum. VAST does not provide content; each organization can customize the system and its contents so that it represents their specific teaching practice.

The VAST model is meant to be a flexible way to describe physical skills and track student progress.

For now, VAST is available as a free standalone product as well as being included with VAMP. Long-term plans are to merge the two but provide a VAST-only option at a low monthly price. If you'd like to try out VAST on its own, you can create an account here.



VAMP Pricing starts at $80/month.

Price may be adjusted up or down depending upon studio size.

1-month trial membership with no penalty for cancellation.

20% discount for ACE members!
