The Sommos™ Beta phase means the platform is fully functional, with additional features and enhancements being worked on that will release soon. We will be continuing to release new features in the upcoming weeks. During this Beta phase, we are actively listening to instructor and client feedback, and users of the platform will have an active opportunity to help shape Sommos™ and its features.

No, for instructors there are no fees, memberships, or committments to set up and manage their business on Sommos™.
To help maintain and improve the platform, there is an administrative fee that is charged to the student on each transaction. If they wish, instructors can choose to cover this fee or split it 50/50 with their students - otherwise the platform is free for the instructor.

Sommos™ and ZIN/SYNC Studio are separate platforms, and you still have full access to ZIN/SYNC Studio when you use Sommos™.
When you create an account on Sommos™, as a ZIN and SYNC Member you'll have the ability to import your Zumba® and STRONG Nation® in-person and livestream classes onto Sommos™. This will allow you to centralize the back-end management of your classes in one place, while still having your classes show up for students on all class search listings - including Sommos™, zumba.com, strongnation.com, zumba.dance and strongnation.fit.
Regardless of which platform your clients access the class through, the experience is seamless- they'll be taken to Sommos™ to finalize registration, with no account creation needed on Sommos™.
Music licensing rules are the same on Sommos™ as they are for ZIN and SYNC Studio. Instructors are responsible for obtaining the necessary licenses for the music they use in their classes. Depending on the class type, those rules are different:
For livestream and in-person classes, generally speaking, instructors need to obtain the appropriate public performance license(s) from the Performance Rights Organization(s) (“PROs”) in the country in which they are teaching. In the United States, the PROs are ASCAP, BMI and SESAC. Instructors may or may not need licenses from all three societies based on their use and selection of music.
For video on demand classes, generally speaking, instructors need to obtain master, synchronization, and public performance licenses, or use license-free music.
