If it's an event, it's probably a good idea to add the event to the Jobs and Events Calendar. This is free and is displayed on our main page as upcoming events. If you would like to promote yourself or an upcoming show, then a front-page feature story is a great way to let our readers know about you and/or your event. You can contact the editor (editor@dance.net) and if we agree, then we can do a story. This typically includes our staff interviewing you by phone or in-person, taking some photos or using some publicity photos that you provide. A quicker way, would be for you to write the story and include a photo. Then simply submit your story, and if it's well-written, has wide-appeal, and is just cool, then we'll approve the story.
