Presenters, Dance Artists, and Marketing:  Expanding Audience Interest in Dance

Building off of Dance/USA’s Dance Forum at APAP in January 2016, Dance Forum WEST will explore the partnerships needed between the dance artists, presenter, agent, and others to successfully market and build audience attendance.  How can we ignite excitement for an artist that is lesser-known in a presenter’s territory by working together?  This pre-conference session will be interactive and feature a combination of large and small group conversations and networking opportunities.  Both dance-only presenters and multi-disciplinary presenters are encouraged to attend.
