I’ve been given a blog award but I’m announcing it with a twist and a shout out. Meet my nominator, Jean who blogs 52 Weeks of Ballet, and Melissa, the young blogger behind the award. They got to ask me questions too in this post that covers everything from first dance solos to returning to ballet as an adult.
Two adult beginners, one male and one female, talk about fitting ballet into their schedules, what surprised them about dance, why they like to be challenged, and what blogging does for their dancing. (Part 2 of 2)
Engage your readers and find out why they love you. This is valuable to blog owners no matter your readership or chances to be a Top Dance Blog. Even if you don’t qualify for the top ten or twenty, you’ll enter 2011 with encouragement to keep blogging!
“I realized that there were many girls that were my age that had just recently started ballet, and had to take class with a whole room full of girls who could do over-splits, triple pirouettes, and could lift their legs to their ears. I began looking at ballet blogs, and reading ballet books, but I could never find exactly what I was looking for. I felt like I needed 10 years of ballet training within a couple of weeks. Things like class etiquette, recital how-tos, and special stretches to boost my extension. I could only imagine that there were more girls like me looking for the same things.”
