The Dance Enthusiast's Enthusiastic Events Initiative Connects Audiences To Behind The Scenes With Artists

The Dance Enthusiast, leading an exuberant revolution in dance communication, is pleased to announce the creation of its Enthusiastic Events Initiative and the birth of the DancEnthusiasts NYC-#getenthused Meetup group. Designed to compliment the organization’s mission of service–engaging, educating, and creating new media discussions to support the work of the NYC dance community—the initiative transports The Dance Enthusiast’s online audience out of the virtual world to events that offer real life connection with artists.

“The Dance Enthusiast is not only a website. We are community connector that brings artists, audience and commercial interests together in celebration and support of this vital art form,” says founding editor Christine Jowers. “Leveraging the access to Meetup’s 13 million members, we’re finding new fans that are interested in behind the scenes access to artists and have a strong interest in attending social events with dance enthusiasts of all genres.”

Those interested in attending Enthusiastic Events should join the 60+ members on Meetup. To partner with The Dance Enthusiast on creating an Enthusiastic Event, email info@dance-enthusiast.com.

The first two events are as follows:
