Anna Kovalova was only 18 years old when she first captured the hearts of dancesport. She ranked very high with her former partner Roman Kutskyy. 3 times Ohio Star Ball, 2nd place for 5 times in the U.S nationals. Later dancing with Justinas Duknauskas they placed 7th in the world!
Now lets focus on present day Anna. She has set her sites on Japan. She received an offer to dance with Shinsuke Kanetmitsu the former all Japan champion from Espen Salberg. The original agreement consisted of only performing show dances. They grew in popularity from the Youtube series created by Dance Today called "Ballroom Geisha" [www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvDBHwJdZJk&t=2s ]. The series followed the pair as they trained for their first show together and caught all the ups & downs. The second season follows them as they debut in the prestigious Blackpool competitors Commission as part of the Blackpool Dance Festival.
On November 3rd 2018 Anna became for the first time, champion of All Japan! Shinsuke and Anna put on a strong performance though every round of qualifying which there were 6 !!! Then into the Quarter , Semi and lastly an exhausting final. You couldn't tell but Anna mentioned to us that "I couldn't see straight and our bodies felt like they will just collapse."
The show requests have been pouring in since they won. Now they are off to Italy.
"Notte Delle Stelle" is a beautiful dinner & fashion showcase. Espen Salberg will be hosting a runway show of his new couture collection & Anna will be a model. Congratulations to these two amazing dancers !

"Social Media" is slang for the "internet" or "online"
Lets play a game! Close your eyes and say the first thing that comes to mind when you imagine "internet" . If you are between the ages of 13-25 then I bet you saw Youtube, Instagram & Facebook. If you are between 25-55 you imagined Google, Facebook & your favorite fishing website! Am I right ?
Consider this. Google owns Youtube. Facebook owns Instagram. These platforms are built on top of the bedrock that is the "internet". When you are searching for a product or servicewhere do you go ? Google for pricing and Youtube for reviews ? If you want the most up to date current events or just want to check in on the family, Facebook. Now, consider that Facebook has 2.27 billion users & Instagram 1 billion that all use these platforms for the same reasons.
If you think logically, doesn't it make sense to market where peoples attention lives. Wether you are on a train, plane or car your eyes are glued to that digital device in your hand. When was the last time you saw a billboard, tv commercial or magazine ad that you can recall! I can tell you when, before the invention of the cell phone...if you're old enough to remember that!
But, in social media we can't avoid coming across an advertisement because its in our "stream" with no where else for us to glance. If we don't want to miss where our best friends went on holiday we have to remain focused on the screen. Bang! thats where Dance Today jumps in! We will create an entertaining ad for your event that retains the viewer's attention. But DO NOT forget that repetition equals recollection. Advertising & marketing need to be seen multiple times to evoke retention. Also remember each market has there own special needs. Diversification of ads is very important in conversions to sales.
Dance Today has over 7 years experience in marketing and sales. Whether you need to boost your sales of a competition or expand brand awareness Dance Today will create and execute a strategy for you. Send us a message today & lets get you on the path to success!
What is Social Media ?
The reality is “Social Media” is a slang term for the state of the internet. Let me explain. The worlds largest search engine “Google” owns the second largest search engine “Youtube”. “Facebook” the site we visit to check on friends & family is now also the platform we use for news and current events. Having an online presence means potential customers can find you 24/7. When new customers see your event & products you better “WOW” them with exciting, entertaining, informative content!
Does Social Media increase sales ?
In short YES ! Social Media marketing offers analytics. We will know what, where & who (including their ages) is consuming your content. This means we can better tailor advertising content for new customers to convert sales. Stop throwing away money on outdated traditional marketing like mailers, ads in magazines & email spam that offer zero insights and end up in the trash faster than they were looked at! Rather, invest in fully trackable, year round marketing with Dance Today Social Media management!
Is your audience on Social Media ?
Did you know that the age of an average Facebook user is between 25-55 !
On Instagram the average age of a user is 15 - 30 !
This means the students that attend pro/am competitions and the teachers which influence a students decision are ALL on social media ! It makes sense to advertise where your audience lives ! If you also attend other competitions in hopes of promoting yours. Where will everyone land after you chat ? Most likely Facebook or Instagram. Now do you understand the importance of Social Media ?
