NEW YORK, NY— Dance.com, the industry’s first social network that brings together dancers, choreographers, enthusiasts, and brands through engaging content and social sharing, has officially launched. Spearheaded by a board of industry leaders, Dance.com is set to fill a major hole within the online market, with the goal of nurturing the art and appreciation of dance. Prestigious individuals in the industry are actively using the vibrant social-based interface and are eager to interact with the dance community.
The first and only all-encompassing digital community for dancers, Dance.com serves as a place for enthusiasts to connect with multiple capabilities at their fingertips, including following influential dancers, friends, and brands. They can interact with targeted groups dedicated to a specific dance style, or follow them all while learning tips and routines. Businesses can also post jobs, auditions, and local events, and promote dance-specific products to their niche client base. The Dance.com app is currently available for free download in the App Store, allowing users to stay connected and access the site’s daily curated content directly from their smart devices.
“Dance.com really is exactly what this industry needs to reinvigorate the worldwide dance community and forge connections between everyone who has a passion for the arts. We’re all active on different social media platforms, and this is the first step toward uniting a community that will benefit from greater interaction,” says Lauren Lovette, Principal Dancer in the New York City Ballet and Dance.com Advisory Board Member. “It’s a great feeling to be in the company of other individuals and organizations who appreciate the art of dance and can continue to share unique dance content all on one outlet.”
Several dance industry professionals expanding their online presence on Dance.com include dancers Lauren Lovette, Barton Coperwaithe, Sophia Lucia, choreographer Matt Steffania, and Wall Street Journal reporter Pia Catton. These dance industry mavens are joined by companies like The Pulse On Tour, Capezio, Dance Informa, the Movement Talent Agency, and Ballet Next, each sharing content and resources fostering connections and greater interaction among members of the dance community. With notable dance influencers and highly regarded companies actively engaging through the social network, Dance.com continues to provide more tools and connectivity.
Dance.com was founded in 2015 by a board of industry and digital veterans who recognized a white space in the online market where the dance community could connect with one another. It is the world’s first digital platform created exclusively for the dance industry. The new site connects dancers, choreographers, enthusiasts, brands and more through engaging content and social sharing.
Today, dance.com is the place to watch and share videos, photos and stories, find local dance events, jobs and auditions, learn tips and routines and boost professional and social connections. Dance.com is the place to express and explore your greatest passion – dance.
