Welcome to DAY THREE of the Spring Fever Giveaway 2011!
Today’s giveaway comes from Dance Dot.
Dance Dot is an individually handcrafted, portable practice floor featuring a fun, lightweight, personalized design, perfect for tap dance students of all ages that want to Keep Dancing!
Dance Dot started when two dancers, Jackie and Codey met on tour (now they are engaged!) When the tour ended and the two moved back to New York City (NYC), Jackie resumed teaching tap dance and realized her students needed a practice floor that was light enough to carry on the subway and small enough to fit conveniently in apartments. Lucky for Jackie, Codey is not only a great dancer, but an awesome carpenter as well and together they created Dance Dot.
The environment is important to Jackie and Codey, that’s why every Dance Dot is individually handcrafted in NYC and made with recycled materials whenever possible.
Dance Dot comes in three different sizes. The size Small is 24 inches in diameter and weighs less than 5 pounds and is recommended for students ages 3 and up. The Medium is 30 inches in diameter and weighs less than 8 pounds and is recommended for students ages 7 and up. The Large is 36 inches in diameter and weighs less than 12 pounds. This one is recommended for students ages 11 and up. All sizes are light enough to be carried alone by the recommended age groups.
Dance Dot has a fun design that you won’t mind leaving on display after practicing. It is perfect for use over wood, carpet or vinyl floors, though it’s advised to avoid using Dance Dot on concrete or other dense surfaces so that dancers can Keep Dancing! Each Dance Dot is personalized by choosing color choices and studio owners will be excited to learn that you can customize Dance Dots with your own logo and colors for dance students

Jackie and Codey would like to give away a Medium Dance Dot to TWO Dance Advantage readers.
The Medium Dance Dot measures 30 inches in diameter and is made from tempered Maronite (what legendary tap dance teacher and choreographer Dr. Henry LeTang practiced on in his home studio). The backside of the Dance Dot is equipped with a non-slip traction mat that doubles as a stretching area.
Winners of the Dance Dot may choose the design of their liking, selecting a base color of silver or black with a lime green or hot pink accent.
