I’m continually impressed by the forward-thinking and progressive workshops being offered by the Queens Council on the Arts (QCA). Last year they had a “Dance Doc Slam” where dance artists could show their promotional/documentation videos and receive advice and critiques from a panel of presenters, funders, booking agents, and videographers. This was a really useful way of learning the perspectives of different key figures about what they look for in dance documentation videos and how our work can be conveyed more effectively on screen.
This week, on Sept. 25th, QCA is offering another great workshop for today’s dance-maker:
STAGE PRESENCE ONLINE, a dynamic workshop for performing artists on how to best use the internet to capture and promote your work. Once again there will be a fabulous panel of esteemed experts including Jaki Levy of Misnomer Dance, Meghan Sprenger of Dance Theater Workshop and Tom Pearson and Zach Morris of Third Rail Projects. (Yours truly was invited, but I have my Media Sales class that night…) This is an opportunity to have your website reviewed by your peers and gain insight from professionals into the myriad options of developing a presence on the web.
Admission is free. Registration is required. Space is limited.
To register, please email your name, address, telephone number, and artistic discipline to firstname.lastname@example.org A select number of performer’s websites will be reviewed and evaluated at this workshop. To have your website reviewed include a url in your registration.
Also, be sure to check out the other workshops QCA is offering this fall, including a presentation by Dance Theater Workshop on Tuesday Sept 23rd at the Chocolate Factory, and one that sounds great to me:
“schmooze or loose” learn how to work a room, get new contacts and maintain professional relationships on Tues. Oct. 16th!
