2015 New Media Influencer – Ian Eastwood

We’ve had the pleasure of having Ian Eastwood in attendance every year since the Industry Dance Awards began in 2012. Little known fact, he was in the one of the first-ever performances on the IDA stage. Since then, Ian Eastwood has made a name for himself through his presence on new media platforms. He has shown this generation the power of sharing your talents and gifts via social media for an interactive connection to his fans. We are looking forward to seeing Ian accept the 2015 New Media Influencer Award at this year’s event.
