German National Dance Congress Project
(tanzkongress Deutchland 22')
Leading the social media strategy for the German National Dance Congress, my role was pivotal in transforming its digital presence. By leveraging original content and interactive strategies, we significantly raised brand awareness and audience engagement in the dance community.
In the dynamic and culturally rich landscape of the German National Dance Congress, I spearheaded a comprehensive social media strategy that breathed new life into the event's online presence. This initiative was characterized by a blend of original content creation, trend interpretation, and community building, all aimed at enhancing brand visibility and fostering a deeper connection with the dance community. Our approach was innovative, leveraging the power of social media to not only promote the Congress but also to engage with a broader audience by demystifying the world of contemporary dance and making it accessible to all.
Challenge: Navigating the conservative nature of the state-funded theatre environment and bringing a contemporary digital approach to the forefront posed a significant challenge. The goal was to engage a modern audience while respecting the traditional ethos of the Congress.
Solution: The strategy involved a multi-faceted approach
Content Strategy: Implemented a content strategy that combined the elegance of dance with relatable, modern social media trends. This included humorous takes on industry topics and behind-the-scenes insights, making the world of contemporary dance more accessible and engaging.
Community Engagement: Focused on building a strong online community by introducing key company members in a relatable and humorous manner, aligning with current social media trends to boost brand awareness, particularly in the lead-up to auditions and season announcements.
Viral Content Creation: Produced viral content that captured the essence of the Congress, such as a video celebrating the return to live performances post-COVID, which resonated deeply with the dance community and beyond.
