‘It’s Been a Tough 16 Months For All of Us’: Four Dance Scene Promoters on the Return of Live Events

But with live shows once again happening throughout the United States and beyond, the light at the end of the tunnel that dance world promoters have been waiting for is finally shining on the dancefloor. Coming back in this new era does, of course, present a host of challenges, particularly as the Delta variant raises new concerns about the safety of gatherings. For promoters in the dance scene, navigating live event production during this reopening phase has come with new challenges, opportunities and experiences.

Here, four veteran dance scene promoters — Dante DiPasquale, VP of Talent at New Orleans’ BUKU Music and Arts Festival, Adam Gold and Craig Pettigrew, co-founders of Los Angeles-based production company Future Primitive, Barclay and Aundy Crenshaw, the husband and wife team behind the beloved dance label and event brand DirtyBird (where Barclay is more commonly known as his artist alias Claude VonStroke) and Adam Simon, Head of Marketing at New York-based production company Teksupport — reflect on the dance world’s return to live.
