Paul Hansen, Marketing Director
Paul Hansen is in his 12th season as Dance Kaleidoscope's marketing director, driving the company's advertising campaigns, presence in the community, lobby experiences for patrons at shows, and he produced all the digital content during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Paul's experience before joining the DK staff includes positions as creative director for two major giftware companies in New York City and then in Newport News, VA. Through those positions, Paul traveled throughout Europe and Asia doing product development and seeking new factories; designed exclusive product for key accounts such as museums and high-end retailers like Neiman Marcus, Gumps, and Horchow; and created national marketing campaigns and visual merchandising in showrooms across the U.S. Paul also designed layouts and wrote articles for a specialty magazine, and was a design specialist with a major greeting card company.
Dance has always been dear to Paul—he began his career as a professional ballet dancer/actor at age 19, based out of New York City.
