Where To Dance - The Evolution of Dance Marketing: Embracing Efficiency and Innovation with Where To Dance

In today's digital age, dance teachers, studio owners, and event organizers face significant financial pressures from the traditional online marketing model. Between Facebook advertising, Google AdWords, creating and posting content on social media, website design, and search engine optimization (SEO), the costs can quickly become overwhelming. For example, a dance studio might find itself allocating over $2,000 monthly just to maintain a visible online presence. This includes paying for online ads, content creation, social media strategy, and website maintenance—a substantial sum that can be a heavy burden for small businesses and independent professionals in the dance industry.

Streamlining Costs with Where To Dance

Where To Dance introduces a transformative solution by offering directly targeted traffic to dance teacher listings, studios, organizers, and institutions. Our platform is designed to significantly reduce these hefty marketing expenses. By pooling the resources from our collective listings—including dance teachers, studios, organizers, and institutions—we can launch larger campaign initiatives at the local, national, and international levels than any single entity could afford independently. This collective approach not only maximizes visibility but also ensures that every participant benefits from broader awareness and engagement, all at a fraction of the cost.

Comprehensive Listings and Benefits

On Where To Dance, users have the opportunity to showcase their events, classes, workshops, performances, and profiles in an accessible and user-friendly manner. This inclusivity ensures that all pertinent information is readily available to prospective students and attendees, enhancing the visibility and reach of our platform's participants. By maintaining accurate and up-to-date listings, we mitigate the frustration potential customers face with outdated or incorrect information, thereby enhancing user satisfaction and trust.

Innovative Tools for the Dance Community

Recognizing the challenges and limitations of current marketing tools, Where To Dance is committed to providing the dance community with innovative solutions previously out of reach. Our platform is engineered to deliver these comprehensive marketing tools at a fraction of the current costs, thereby democratizing access to effective online presence for everyone within the dance ecosystem.

Future-Proofing Dance Discovery with LLMs

Looking ahead, Where To Dance is actively working on integrating dance data with Large Language Models (LLMs) to ensure that our platform and its users are prepared for the future of information retrieval. As the reliance on traditional SEO and PPC models diminishes, LLMs will offer immediate, accurate answers to queries about dance classes, events, and resources. This alignment with future technologies guarantees that Where To Dance and its users stay ahead of the curve, making traditional search methods less relevant and providing a more direct, efficient way to connect with audiences.

The Timeless Human Element of Dance

Despite the rapid advancements in AI and technology, the essence of dance remains uniquely human. The tactile, personal experience of learning to dance, attending classes, and participating in social events cannot be replicated by automation or robotics. Now, more than ever, is an exciting time to be part of the dance industry, as these technological advancements enhance, rather than replace, the human elements of teaching and enjoying dance.


As we continue to develop and refine Where To Dance, our commitment remains to bring these groundbreaking features to life, offering an unparalleled platform for the dance community. By reducing the financial and logistical barriers to effective marketing and embracing the potential of LLMs, we are not just keeping pace with the future—we are helping to shape it.

Samuel Newton

Co-founder of WhereToDance

Samuel Newton has gracefully moved to the rhythms of Salsa, Bachata, Swing, and Ballroom, cherishing every step and turn. His love for dance extends beyond the dance floor – it's in the laughter shared during a dance lesson, the applause after a performance, and the connections made in a dance hall.

Recognizing the vibrancy and potential of the dance community, Samuel, along with Sarah Hamilton, co-founded both and WhereToDance. Their vision was simple yet profound: to cultivate a platform where dancers, both novices and veterans, could connect, learn, and grow. Samuel's dedication is not just about mastering dance steps; it's about fostering a community where every dancer feels at home.

When he's not dancing or working on Where To Dance, Samuel can be found attending dance events, immersing himself in the ever-evolving world of dance, and continuously seeking avenues to help the dance community flourish.
