Booking Referral Program
Beginning in 2008, Audience Architects staffed exhibit booths at the Midwest and national booking conferences in order to network with dance presenters and discuss the abundance of dance companies in Chicago. Rather than acting as agents, Audience Architects serves as a referral service, connecting presenters with dance companies and/or their agents. In 2010, we took this service to the next level and produced the first ever Chicago Dance Showcase at the 2010 Arts Midwest Conference in Indianapolis. The showcase featured nine Chicago dance companies and there were approximately 150 attendees including presenters from Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri.
