a note from the founder
DanceMI was founded in 2015 with the idea that with all these various IASA shows going around in high schools and college campuses, there was a lack of unity in the dance community. Everyone had their own events, but lacked a unified identity.
The initial idea of DanceMI came with a lot of pushback; I was told that people didn’t care about paying online and that it was “too much work”. I was told that it was a waste of time.
After 3 years of constant redesign, development, numerous events, and over $10,000 in revenue collected, we’ve finally reached a beautiful point in our company’s progress that will help launch this concept nationally. Frankly, the concept is pretty simple. Our competitors, such as eventbrite, have a very similar ticketing system, but lacks a personal touch. DanceMI is more than just a ticketing service. It’s about bringing the community closer by creating a one-stop portal for all their Dance event information.
We look forward to working with sponsors and investors to eventually make the website completely free to use for events, and provide a support network for event-hosters to make their IASA shows, Dance Competitions, or any type of cultural event. We hope you have a good experience using the DanceMI website, and we hope to see you at one of our numerous partner events all over this nation.
