5 Tips for Running a Dance Project

Our project creators make good teachers. Once a week, we ask one post-success project creator to take a break from the packing and shipping, put pen to paper, and give us their best lessons learned for making and running a great Kickstarter project. Today we talk to Indelible dance company about their gorgeously lighted performance project, Illuminate.


#1

Invest time and energy in creating a good video. Dance is a moving art. Make sure you represent it well!

#2

Make tickets to your performance a backer reward. The show is the culmination of your project, and backers will want to see the finished product.

#3

Don't attempt to reward backers with things that have nothing to do with dance (e.g., homemade dinners, brownies). Stick to what you know.

#4

Tell your mom to tell her friends about your campaign. She's probably your biggest cheerleader.

#5

Believe in the awesomeness of your project. If you think you're great, chances are others will too!

      Not just great advice for dance but for any creative project. Especially #5 - your positive energy will be picked up by the people around you - and the people you need to be around you!
