“Although a relatively young company, Mocean Dance grasps the essence of promotion. Despite being relatively self-managed, they have come up with some very interesting concepts. Presenters love when the artist takes the responsibility of promotion out of their hands and replaces it with a finished product. From customized brochures to promotion support to innovative poster design this group of dancers makes sure that you have everything you need to ensure a successful program without leaving anything to chance.”
