Dancers of Minnesota is a collaboration site with two goals. First to highlight the dancers that make Minnesota's dance community one of the best in the country. Second to help fund Minnesota Dance News and keep it online. 100% of the proceeds from the session fee will go to fund Minnesota Dance News' mission, to provide a media source dedicated to telling the stories of the Minnesota dance community.
Here is the process:
Everyone who participates in a shoot will get at least one #dancersofmn photo ready to share on social media.
We would love to collaborate with you on this project and look forward to capturing your art on camera and through your words.
Sincerely,Matt BlewettCreator of Minnesota Dance News & My Story Minnesota.
What is Dancers of Minnesota? It is a community project designed to highlight dancers in the state of Minnesota and help fund Minnesota's dance media site www.mndancenews.com. 100% of the revenue generated will go to fund the website and digital subscription costs of Minnesota Dance News.
There is a $140 session fee that must be paid prior to finalizing the session. Our packages start at $450. The session fee covers up to 4 dancers, each dancer can create a separate order or you can create a combined order, it is up to you/your group. Everyone who participates in a session will get at least one social media ready #dancersofmn image. It will be shared by us and you then sent to you.
If selected, dancers will be able to select a day and theme of their shoot and are encouraged to come with 2-3 friends from their studio/team (it is cheaper too).
You will get all the images used in your article to use (including print release) as a thank you for your support of Minnesota Dance News. Dancers of Minnesota is about getting quality (not necessarily quantity). Dancers will conclude the shoot by selecting their favorite photos from the session (if there are four dancers they can each select up to 7). Matt will edit them and they will be the photos that are included in the article. One week after the article is published you will receive a link to download the photos and use them for your personal use.
Contributions to Minnesota Dance News are greatly appreciated. Please note that 100% of proceeds will go directly to help cover the fixed costs of Minnesota Dance News (and keep it online).
