Welcome to DAY SEVEN of the Spring Fever Giveaway 2011! Our final giveaway!
Today’s giveaway is a prize package from Dance Advantage with our friend Richard Maddock.
Normally, I’d tell you a little bit about Dance Advantage in this space but you’re already here! So, I’m just going to encourage you, especially if you’re visiting for the first time, to explore. Clicking the Get Started button is an excellent place to begin. From there you can access some key components of the site. I recommend checking out our Cornerstone Content (featuring a mere sample of the nearly 500 articles on the site, plus how to navigate your way to more of the content you want), and our Facts and FAQs page.
Richard Maddock is an accomplished musician (see for yourself) as well as a seasoned dance class and exam accompanist. He is currently Head Accompanist at The Pia Bouman School of Creative Movement and Ballet, in Toronto, Canada. We talked to him last year about his years of experience as an accompanist.
His full-length CDs are well-known in the dance community. Music for Movement and Imaginations; Ballet Studio Inspirations: Volume Two, and Three; The Garden Within; and As Creation Unfolds: Part Three have all been reviewed (and given away) on this site before. Four of these albums have been digitally remastered and can now be found on iTunes and Amazon.com for download.
TWO Dance Advantage readers will win:
- A copy of The Dancer’s Way: The New York City Ballet Guide to Mind, Body, and Nutrition by former dancer, clinical psychologist, and key developer of NYCB’s wellness program, Linda H. Hamilton (also known for her popular advice column in Dance Magazine). This book is a comprehensive dancer’s companion. It provides truly practical advice and useful information for dancers of any age, any level of experience, and in any dance form.
- Richard Maddock’s As Creation Unfolds: Part Three instrumental CD. Suitable for choreography or relaxation, this album takes the listener on a sometimes deliberate, sometimes meandering but always reassuring journey of reflection and memory.
- A Dance Advantage micro-fiber sleeveless t-shirt featuring our basic logo design, available at Zazzle.com Store.
ONE Grand Prize winner will get…
The above three prizes PLUS a pair of super-cute MUK LUKs. Keep those dancer feet cozy warm between classes and around the house.
This grand prize package retails at over $80.
How To Enter:
Visit iTunes or Amazon.com and LIKE, Share, or Ping Richard’s downloadable music as a thanks for his continuing generosity to DA readers.

This giveaway is open to those in the United States and Canada and will close Wednesday, March 30 at Midnight EDT.
