Sell Tickets

PhiladelphiaDANCE.org’s DANCE BOX OFFICE has now migrated to the Dance Calendar. You can now sell your tickets directly from your listings.  You can choose to sell all your tickets through this site or simply an allotment for each performance listed.


In order to sell tickets through our site, you need to sign our seller agreement and provide basic information as to tax status as well as an address and legal name for your final check when your event has concluded.  Click Here to view and sign. (opens in new window).


Create an account on the Dance Calendar.  (Ignore and go to step 3 if you have already had an account and have already posted events here).  If you are new to the Dance Calendar you must first register and create an account, click here.  Once you have completed the registration form, you will receive an immediate email verification with your username and password. If you do not see it, be sure to check your spam folder. Once you have created your account there is no further need to register when posting future events.

If you have filled out and submitted a seller agreement, your account will also be converted to a VENDOR account. This can take up to 24 hours to establish and approve. A VENDOR account is required to sell tickets on our site and receive your payments.


Login & Add Your Event.  In the top menu, under MY ACCOUNT, select login and enter your username & password.  Once logged in to the calendar, go back to MY ACCOUNT and select ADD AN EVENT.  You will arrive at a form page to fill in all the information about your performance.

EVENT TITLE – the title should only reflect the name of the dance company and name of the show; XYZ Company presents XYZ Show

EVENT DESCRIPTION – this should tell us about the performance and what the audience will see. It can also be about the dancers or company presenting. Do NOT put dates, times, links, payment information, or other references to other performances, fundraisers, or solicitations here.

EVENT DATE & TIME –
Start/End – put start date, start time, end time, end date  IMPORTANT – if you are running for multiple dates, start date and end date for this first entry MUST BE THE SAME.  The only case where they would be different is if for example your start time was 11pm on day 1 and ends at 1am on next day-day 2.

IF YOU HAVE MULTIPLE DATES/TIMES for your shows – The current software does not allow for use of this function with ticketing.  You will need to create each event date/time as a separate entry with it’s own tickets. Do NOT use this function if selling tickets from the calendar.

EVENT IMAGE – here you can add the image that will appear with your listing. DO NOT ADD HIGH-RESOLUTION IMAGES. Images that are too large may slow down your listing or event prevent it from posting altogether. Images should be for web not print and therefore 72dpi.

EVENT CATEGORIES – Click in the box where it says search from existing categories. Add as many categories as you feel appropriate. This helps when the audience is searching for an event.

EVENT TAGS – Click in the box where it says search from existing tags. Add as many tags as you feel appropriate.

VENUE DETAILS – Click on the box and scroll through an alphabetical list of existing venues to find yours. If you do not find a match you can create a new venue and add the required information. To create a new venue start typing the name in the box.

ORGANIZER DETAILS – This is generally information about you or the company – the organizer of the event. If you have posted before, you are most likely in the database. If not you can create your listing here.

INFORMATION & TICKETS – If you are selling tickets other than through our site – put the URL to your ticket page here https://website.  If you are selling tickets through the calendar than simply put a link to your show or company website.

ADDITIONAL FIELDS – check any boxes that are appropriate. IMPORTANT – check event type: ONLINE OR LIVE
