What you need to know


Earn $1/ticket cash back

Holding performances in 2020–21 was difficult. Dance studio directors adapted by hosting performances in hotels, drive-ins and churches. You found a way to make it happen, and ShOvation was right there with you, adapting our ticketing technology to accommodate social distancing, capacity limitations and a host of new venues.

As our way of saying thank you to the dance community for your bold leadership, creativity and drive, ShOvation is pleased to offer a $1-per-ticket incentive (up to 1,000 tickets per dance studio for at least the first 100,000 ticket commitments, on a first come, first serve basis). You can use this cash however you like to secure venues, rent equipment or hire professionals. To qualify, you must schedule and hold an event on ShOvation's ticketing platform between March 14 and June 18, 2022.

ShOvation announced its $1/Ticket Cash Back Promotion on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 in an email announcement to Dance Business Weekly readers, an online publication of Dance Media.

Promotion Description

ShOvation will award the $1/Ticket Cash Back Promotion as follows:

  • ShOvation has set aside a promotional budget of $1 for up to 100,000 full price tickets.
  • A ticket is defined as a full price ticket where ShOvation has assessed a convenience fee which is paid for by your patrons (or in some cases, your performing arts entity). Comp tickets ($0 ticket) and disputed ticket purchases will not be eligible for the promotion.
  • ShOvation intends for all studios who hold a performance between March 14 and June 18, 2022 to participate in the promotion as follows:
