Posts, news articles, and other dance-related items we find at these locations are often passed along, “retweeted,” and featured. I am much more likely to feature and promote people and organizations with whom I already interact. I’ve been known to arbitrarily Tweet, Tumble and share news items and events.

Pitch a story
A great deal of information crosses my desk. I rarely have time to figure out an angle on the many PR requests I receive. Therefore, the best method for promoting your event within the editorial content on Dance Advantage is to pitch a specific story or interview that will fit this educational focus. A good pitch offers one or two angles on a story that would provide particularly relevant content and value for readers at Dance Advantage.
A valuable story provides actionable tasks and strategies. I want the reader to be able to walk away (or “surf” away) with something they can act upon and apply to their own dance experience.

Offer in-kind promotion
When the value or circumstances are right, Dance Advantage occasionally engages in in-kind promotion or sponsorship of free or not-for-profit events, performances, charities, blogs, and on rare occasion, for-profit businesses or companies.
If you are promoting an event or dance performance:
Except in terms of global, nation-wide, or online events, Dance Advantage is not primarily a news source, as this does not align with the overall mission for content. If you would prefer direct coverage of your news item, there are other well-done and professional blogs which may be able to accommodate this type of story.
In regard to pitching a specific story, event promoters might consider the following:
- I am looking for interviews with teachers who can share their knowledge, expertise, or theories with other teachers.
- For dancers who can share their tips, advice, or their inspirational path with others.
- For professionals who can provide insight into their pathway to becoming a professional, or provide useful reference regarding a time or work in dance history, or a particular dance form/culture.
Please understand that while I would love to support all dance companies and artists, I simply cannot entertain all requests. Interviews will be posted as space in the editorial schedule allows. However, given enough notice and prep time, any event or news item you are hoping to promote can be taken into consideration for the publishing of the article.
