Website Construction (CMS-Based)

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, Drupal, or Weebly . A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
What We Have In Place
  • Our current web site was constructed in 2012 and contains a significant amount of content that would be transferred to the new Wordpress platform. We manage a file of other web sites that we find inspiring and appealing that will provide us with direction as we move forward with the Wordpress construction. We have also selected a few Wordpress platforms as possible options.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to continue to share K+C's vision of dance 1000 's of audience members, students, and supporters every year.

KEIGWIN + COMPANY’s online presence is a vital part of our electrifying brand of contemporary dance. Our current website is outdated and is inhibiting our ability to engage the broadest possibility audience online — both on their computers and mobile devices. The construction of a Wordpress website will greatly enhance our capacity to cultivate new fans and interact with audiences on a digital platform, extending the company’s vision of dance beyond the proscenium.
