Studio owners, how would you like to learn a few tips on making your dance recital season run smoother? Then be sure to check out Standby in the Wings: A Behind-The-Scenes Guide to Producing the Perfect Dance Recital by Joe Naftal!
This guide covers an expansive spectrum of production topics, such as venue relations, site survey, lighting, projections, video, sound, backstage management and more. It aims to help establish a common vocabulary for dance studio owners and the designers, technicians and staff they work with to create a stellar dance recital production.
Author Joe Naftal is a NYC-based dance studio consultant who’s well known for his seminars at events like Dance Teacher Summit and the Energize Conference. He decided to write this guidebook after many dance teachers and studio owners talked to him about their desires to increase the production value, efficiency and profitability of their recitals.
Rami Shalan of Born 2 Dance Studio commented that Standby in the Wings is “an excellent source of recital management tips for all of us.”
Likewise, Erin Jensen of Bloom Dance Studio shared that she couldn’t recommend the book more.
“Often in recital planning I feel like I’m on my own… This book has been such an incredible resource,” said Jensen. “You do not want to plan another recital without reading this book first…It’s a gift to dance studio owners and anyone involved in stage production!”
