Top Dance Blogs of 2010

For our first ever contest, thirty dance blogs signed on to participate. All are sharing themselves, their knowledge, and their experience with the online dance community in their own unique way. Please take a moment to visit their sites. They’d all make great additions to your personal dance “magazine”.

Dance Advantage would like to thank all of the participants and YOU the readers!

I am thrilled to have hosted this event. I hope you found some new blogs to follow in the process.

Readers and the bloggers themselves came out to show support for all of their favorite blogs in the first round of our contest. Now, those blogs who rallied the most comments have made the cut for the final voting stage. The polls will close at 10AM EST on Thursday, December 30.

Become A Featured Teacher

In 2011, Dance Advantage would like to resume its Teacher’s Top Three feature. We’ve done only a few of these in the past (see below) but I’d really like to try to make it something regular. To do so, I need your help!

If you teach dance in any setting we want to feature your top picks for:

A teacher helping a student at the barre

  • CD’s
  • Songs
  • Recital themes
  • Books
  • DVDs or videos
  • Exercises
  • And whatever else we can dream up.

In order to be featured, you need to sign up using the form embedded in this post below. The form can also be found at this location. This tells us of your interest and also a little about you.

When you are featured on Dance Advantage, you will be sharing useful information with this community in a simple and straightforward format. It is also an opportunity to receive some “press” which you can link to or feature in your studio website or portfolio. We will link to you if possible, providing a quality boost for your own website, blog, Facebook page, etc.

We’ll be looking for variety in the Teacher’s Top Three so do share what makes you unique! Because this is an ongoing project and will only appear periodically (my hope is monthly) on the site, please be patient. We want to highlight you but it may not be right away. Including contact info where you can be reached consistently will improve your chances of being highlighted.

Here are our past features:

Teacher’s Top Three: Books For Ballet Teachers

Teacher’s Top Three: Little Movers

Teacher’s Top Three: Music for Adult Ballet
