Project Description

Hi There,
We need a website for a ballet company in Australia. We are non for profit hence the very low budget.

This project is for phase 1 only, other phases will be given to winning bidder or posted as new projects here.
Phase 1: design & complete website setup
Phase 2: design logo & branding
Phase 3: SEO campaign

To raise awareness of the company. To increase public ticket sales. To encourage young talented dancers to audition. To attract sponsors and donations and scholarships. To educate public about classical ballet. To support young talented dancers. To unite young ballet dancers and provide professional productions of excellence.

Site is easy to manage by ourselves.
easy to upload content
free/cheap template
Naturally well optimised for SEO
plugins available.
mobile ready

I am thinking wordpress as I have had some experience with it but am open to learn new things if you think there are benefits from other types of sites.
I particularly like the suffusion wordpress theme as it's fully customisable, again, it’s not a must.

plugins required (with some example links):
Mailchip (so users can subscribe to newsletter)
social feed instagram - [url removed, login to view]
social feed Facebook - [url removed, login to view]
Testimonial widget
Anything else you can recommend

Artwork Design / look & feel
This is the raw idea, open to slight suggestions as I am not a designer
Site look & feel is like an old theatre (see attached jpg’s)
landing page: theatre curtains opening to reveal the stage which is the home page
all pages: looks like a stage
Home: perhaps on the stage we have a container for a you tube video or a slide show of pictures
sidebars: open curtains (perhaps with some decorated columns)
header: theatre top curtain
footer: stage lights or chairs (i.e. the people who watch the show)
menu: on top or on side bar – depends on design

this site was created with suffusion theme on WP ( it is not that nice looking but the idea is there) [url removed, login to view]
this site is nicer, VERY slow to load but shows nice design ideas - looks similar to what we want [url removed, login to view]
also see attached pictures for inspiration

we will upload most content, just need help getting right structure for it so might be that you upload some stuff to get us started
For now I am collecting all content in dropbox

Header: ballet company logo, social links
right side: testimonials widget
mailchip newsletter subscription (somewhere in top third)
visible link to the buying tickets page (somewhere in top third)
Footer to include sponsors logo's (don't have sponsors yet), any standard required links & company details
