New client win, say hello to start-up, Dance+Industry
We are very excited, and that's VERY EXCITED, to be working with start-up Dance+Industry to develop and launch in the UK this December.
Dance+Industry exists to support dancers and dance organisations to turn their passion into a profession. Delivering coaching and mentoring on business acumen and business development for the freelancers and organisations alike - the very first programme of its kind in the UK.
It launches in London on 9th December with Dance+Industry+Day; the innovative day-long event will feature guest appearances from Jay Revell; Creative Director at Black Skull Creative, who has performed alongside Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys and Mariah Carey to name but a few. Lizzie Gough, well-known for her appearances on the BBC and ITV, as well as performing with Take That. And dance professional Shannelle Fergus who has made a name for herself dancing alongside FKA Twiggs and Kyle Minogue, with more experts to be confirmed.
The day-long event will provide a framework for dancers looking to start or develop their freelance career, by teaching them the business basics so often left out of a traditional dance or performance course/qualification. Attendees can expect to learn more about how to:
- establish a personal brand
- negotiate fees
- market and promote themselves
- find and make the most of commercial opportunities
- grow a financially viable career
