Distribution and Video Syndication
With dance education as our core mission, we believe that the Internet and online television make it possible for more people to access information and to learn in new ways. A solid video distribution strategy is essential for digital video publishers, and the best distribution strategies use a video syndication platform to interact with distribution partners. In fact, pairing a smart online video distribution plan with the right content syndication tools may be the best way to monetize video.
Dance Channel TV brings broadcast quality production value to the small screen, and savvy media watchers are recognizing this fact. Our recent projects include working with MTV and Hip Hop International to feature Randy Jackson’s America’s Best Dance Crew; shooting a pilot for international satellite network LINK TV, with a view to producing a monthly show.
In the past year, we have covered and worked closely with important industry names, such as American Ballet Theatre, Mariinsky Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Nederlands Dans Theater, Joffrey Ballet, Universal Ballet of Korea, Boris Eifman and Hans Van Manen, Diavolo Dance Company, Dance Umbrella UK, Monsters of Hip Hop, Dutch Jazzart Dance Theater, Los Angeles Ballet, Seoul International Dance Festival, Moiseyev Dance Company, New York’s Career Transition for Dancers and many more.
