Our Story

Personal Statement from the Founder

"My personal journey as a dancer profoundly shapes the mission of our platform. I transitioned from performing full time to exploring roles in arts administration, then delving into production and eventually venturing into business ownership. Through these different stages, I've witnessed firsthand the transformative power of community and the importance of having options and resources to sustain and continue evolving creatively.


This platform is more than a project; it's an extension of my journey—a response to the challenges I faced and celebration of the discoveries found at every stage in a dancer's career. Having experienced the impact of mentorship and the need for ongoing support, DanceConnect is committed to ensure that dancers, no matter where they are in their journey, find a space to thrive, transition, and continue contributing to the rich fabric of this amazing art form. 


A genuine and heartfelt thank you to the incredible dancers sharing their stories, the creative force lending their talents, partners and clients creating opportunities, and the audiences keeping this art form alive. You're the soul of this mission, and I'm genuinely thankful for YOU."


With gratitude,

Dominique Hamilton, CEO/Founder
