Dancer Profile is ABOUT Dance, and will be for use by professional dancers and those who work and operate within the dance industry
Right now we’re in a beta stage, meaning we’re in the process of developing the dancer profile concept. Whilst doing this we’re inviting professional dancers to register on the site either for FREE then if happy to do so undertake to pay a monthly or annual fee for its use once developed and officially launched. Or, by becoming a founding member on the onset which awards them lifetime membership for a nominal £100 crowdfunded type investment.
In case you have questions
We're aiming for 150 founding members
Good Question, should this ever be the case it wouldn’t deter us in continuing development, not only do we believe in the benefits that Dancer Profile would provide to Professional Dancers (as well as the Dance Industry) we also have a commitment to provide a service to those who have become Founding Members.
We’re developing Dancer Profile to be an effective online management tool which Professional Dancers would regularly use to keep their profile (inc work history) up to date. Making it handier when submitting job and audition applications.
Whilst we ultimately plan to be able to list casting jobs our intention will be in only offering those jobs which we deem as being beneficial to the dancer. This is because we as dancers ourselves know too well how much blood, sweat and tears go in to dance training, rehearsals etc without having to do things for free.
NO – this current site is in no way representative of how Dancer Profile will either look or how it will function. This current site is a very basic and cost-effective way for us to not only get the Dancer Profile name out there but also gauge the interest and support from the dance community.
Although we say this site is basic, it does provides members with the ability to create their own PROFILE (so long as they are or have been a professional dancer). Once developed and officially launched members will be able to create a more defined URL dancerprofile.com/yourname perfect for self-promotion and job & audition applications.
Well, we really cannot say too much other than we want Dancer Profile to be a working tool which all Professional Dancers feel is of genuine benefit to them. If we lay out now all the services we intend to provide long-term that would be only creating competitors. Let’s just say that we are Dancers looking out for the best interest of Dancers, we wish to be niche and selective, hence us sticking to what we know (Dance) and targeting Professional Dancers.
Although still in development the aim is to enable dancers to create & manage their own online Dancer Profile which they can control. There are a number of management administration aspects which we wish to include also.
Ultimately, we wish for Dancer Profile to be a beneficial tool for the whole Dance Industry, through which can be utilised and referenced to in order to seek and engage Professionals Dancers for opportunities.
Our goal is that correct use of Dancer Profile would enable a full and concise professional training and experience record of a dancer to be kept. Therefore, easily accessible for use within a continued dance career i.e. teaching, choreography.
