DANZ Social Media Takeover Season 2020
Dance Aotearoa New Zealand (DANZ) is excited to have recently launched its new Social Media Takeover Season, with twelve weeks of creative inspiration and sharing from New Zealand dance artists practising across a range of genres. At a time when many freelance dance artists have lost valuable opportunities for work and creative outlet as a result of the pandemic, DANZ is pleased to be able to provide this limited window for the development of commissioned content.
Sheryl Lowe, DANZ Executive Director, says: “As the national support organisation for dance in Aotearoa New Zealand, we are keen to assist the dance sector in as many ways as we can during this difficult time. We are delighted to be able to offer some interim platforms for these dance artists to keep producing and making their valuable work accessible to the wider dance community and audiences.”
Over a twelve week period, DANZ hosts an artist each week for a takeover featuring creative content to be shared across DANZ’s social media platforms – Instagram and Facebook. From Classical, Contemporary and Pacific dance to Urban, Crossover and Waacking, the DANZ Social Media Takeovers programme offers something for everyone, through a variety of mediums including live and pre-recorded classes/workshops, dance films, TikTok challenges, Talanoa/Kōrero sessions and more!
