Many professional dancers and dance teachers today rely on digital marketing – websites, blogs, and various social media platforms – to get their message out to future students and other dancers, along with the general public. Developing and putting out a DVD is another way dancers can make a name for themselves.

While these are great ways to reach the community and potential customers, it can be easy to overlook the benefits of putting expertise to use in writing a book or magazine. Beyond being a source of income, publishing your content allows another way for your knowledge and hard work to reach an audience and provides a solid legacy that you can hold in your hand.

But how do you start taking your ideas from concept to printed book? How does self-publishing work? Davina will be joining us in the Clubhouse to answer your questions!


You’ll learn:

  • Why dancers should consider writing and publishing a book
  • Why to self-publish and a timeline of self-publishing
  • Tips on marketing and how to create effective titles and covers

We’ll also have some discussion time, so you can ask Davina your questions.


This free call will take place on Thursday, December 28th, 2017 at 8pm Eastern Time.
(see that in your own time zone)

You can attend by phone or Skype, or listen on the web.

If you can’t attend live, don’t worry!
The call will be recorded, so you can listen later.
