The Neglia Conservatory of Ballet has been nurturing dancers of all ages and abilities since 1994. The studio offers exceptional classical ballet training that features small class sizes, personalized attention, dedicated instructors, and performance opportunities.
When Neglia came to OtherWisz, the ballet studio had long outgrown their original website. They wanted to offer not only a better visual representation of their programs and facilities, but to give website visitors an improved experience. Equally as important, Neglia wanted to make their job easier from an administrative standpoint by having the ability to quickly update their own content, which was a difficult task on the old site.
Updated website design delivers a rave-worthy performance
The new and improved Neglia Ballet website is a content-rich, user-friendly marketing tool. Presented with dramatic photos and video clips that capture the fluid movement of ballet, a visitor can gain a greater understanding of what this world-renowned studio offers. The reorganized navigation gives users quick access to information on Neglia’s programs and performances, a calendar of upcoming events and rehearsals, helpful FAQs, and direct links to the class registration and donation pages. The new page layouts include testimonials, large visual ‘buttons’ to showcase Neglia’s main class levels, and dynamic content balanced in an easy-to read format, all optimized for a variety of screen sizes.
Encore includes a digital and environmental marketing campaign
After conducting such a deep exploration of Neglia’s brand, audience, and competitors – which is a standard part of the OtherWisz website design and development process – it made sense for the studio to further enlist the help of our team for their future marketing efforts. While planning campaigns for Fall 2021 and Summer 2022 enrollment, we met with Neglia several times to discuss their past advertising strategy and some preliminary ad concepts.
The Fall 2021 ads targeted children and their parents, aiming to increase Neglia’s youth enrollment. A photoshoot was arranged to capture imagery that tells the story of both the beautiful open studio space, and the connection made between young students and their instructors. We developed headlines that support this relationship as depicted in the photos, presenting Neglia as a builder of confidence, imagination and independence – all aspects that are part of the studio’s program, which reaches beyond simply learning to dance.
The more recent Summer 2022 campaign was designed to promote the studio’s international ballet intensive and children’s summer programs. Each ad featured a dynamic hero image of a Neglia dancer in motion, silhouetted against a lively field of blue. The main campaign message was given an oversized typographic treatment that’s impossible to miss, then layered behind the figures to create a sense of depth.
Both Neglia campaigns consisted of large bus shelter advertisements, shareable social media images and targeted ad posts (both static and animated), and a Google AdWords campaign. All of these digital marketing efforts were designed to help increase enrollment numbers and grow a continuing student base.
