Office Hours


DANCE NOW's Director of Programming, Ariane Michaud, holds digital consulting hours for artists every week, free of charge. These “office hours” serve as a supportive environment for artists who often lack the administrative support to fulfill their vision. ​Here are some things that DN can discuss and assist with: 



Tell us how you are doing during COVID-19. 


We want to connect with artists, and see how they are holding up during the pandemic. Hearing from you will help DN support artists in the best way possible during these unusual times. 



Get help with organizational and administrative tasks. 


Since starting these consulting hours, DN has helped artists write grants, update resumes, develop language for a new project, launch crowdfunding campaigns, find new income streams, draft budgets, and transition in-person processes into online formats. In 45 minutes, the artist works with DN to create a plan to tackle any number of these projects, and schedules check-ins to make sure they are staying on-track. 



Hear about our programming and partners. 


DN is always happy to share updates about DANCE NOW productions, the festival, or answer any other questions you may have about our community and our programming. 


Get help with anything else pertaining to the functioning, and thriving of you and your company.


We are not superhuman, but the DANCE NOW team has collectively gathered more than a few years of expertise, and we want to support artists in any way that we can during these consulting hours. If there is something that DN, specifically, can not help with, we will do our best to connect you to the right person.
