I am not a specialist in starting dance corporations, but I have some knowledge. Being a dance outworker for different dance corporations and schools I have learned how to promote and advertise growth for my company.
1. You And Your Obsession
Like all excellent companies it begins with a simple obsession/wish to do anything you live. So, yes, it begins with only you. If you don’t possess teaching, guiding, or planning skills than it’s top to begin anywhere (in a small regional studio) where you can obtain knowledge. Like the majority dancers, expending lots of their time in the studio is important: making lesson strategies, organizing dances and improving your performance. Then, begin sharing with the group of people who you are as a regional dancer: attend dance classes, educate private lessons, perform at events and perform everywhere you like. Revealing yourself to the society will obtain more people stimulated regarding what you do, and will probably desire to become a member of your developing corporation.
2. First Recital
After performing in all free festivals you will have public interested to watch over your dance. Then certainly you have public eager to give money to see the corporation. Begin planning the first formal upcoming recital. (Don’t react in an immoderate way with information, remain simple) Like most companies, they begin small and develop from there. Almost certainly, hold the recital at where the company’s dancers rehearsal at, if there is a space for spectators. If there is not sufficient space then perform in a church. Remain simple, go with what you possess. Begin with an introduction regarding the corporation and do the dances. Having distinct people over guiding, music, sound, lights, uniforms and other originality will be a lot easy than having one individual to do the whole thing. Keep in mind you are trying to make fans, so maintain the tickets comparatively inexpensive! Or don’t charge for tickets and just receive contributions.
3. Counting Your Fans
Involving your fans is very significant. Social networking assists a lot. Make a Facebook or Twitter account, use your dance crew logo as a profile picture and include the society in all your videos and future recitals. It may appear like lots right now, but just start with one account at a time. Afterward, create your business cards and build website. Aid organization events really comprise the society as well, for example dance classes for: internal city teens, hospital patients, orphanages, etc. Also, do fundraising for regional charitable trusts.
