Here's how it works:
People send us prompts through Twitter and add the hashtag #TweetDance or a specific event hashtag:
Professional dancers turn the tweet prompts into minute-long dances created on the spot!
People watch as their tweets are brough to life by the dancers.
Photos, videos, and impressions from this experience are then shared by the audience on social media:
#TweetDance is being performed in the BEAT Festival at the Brooklyn Museum on September 11th, 2014
We have performed #TweetDance inside Le Tigre Tent, at our launch party at Wix Lounge, at the TASTEdaily Launch Party, at Eventbrite's Britefest NYC, at an A/V Club event, and XL Nightclub! #TweetDance is customizable for events and parties!
#TweetDance is fully customizable for your event!
Prior to the event, #TweetDance producers can work with your team to determine a tweet prompt theme for the evening, and will prepare a list of sample tweet prompts that will help the audience start to generate prompts. For TASTEdaily, we chose the theme "Bold Woman", and sample tweet prompts included "leaning in", "the glass ceiling", "running in heels". At XL Nightclub the theme was "Hot Summer". While a theme is not necessary, it is a great way to fully integrate #TweetDance performances into the event.
As long as the dancers can freely move, we can customize their wardrobe to be on brand for the event.
Wardrobe: cocktail party chic. pastels, lace, and animal print.
Tweet Prompt Theme: "Bold Woman"

"#TweetDance is a surefire way to produce an event that is unforgettable, branded, and effectively engaged in social media.

"The moment the lights dimmed and #TweetDance performances began at NYC Britefest, I knew I made the right choice in entertainment for the evening! #TweetDance is doing something truly special by merging technology and performance to make art more accessible. Not only that, but it's a fun way to increase engagement at events both online and in-person. Kyla Ernst-Alper and her amazing team are talented, professional, and really know how to facilitate a beautiful and captivating experience!"
-Angela Giacchetti; NYC Marketing Manager, Eventbrite
"Having #TweetDance at our TASTEdaily launch party was absolutely incredible. When I set out to build my launch event, I had the intention of bringing to together a group of talented, smart, vivacious, and bold women. When I met Kyla I knew I had found the missing piece for our event. Kyla and her dancers created a beautiful and modern performance. The guests were enthralled and entertained. I could not have found a better fit for our event. Many thanks to Under One Dances for an unforgettable experience. Everyone needs to experience #TweetDance!"
