Welcome to the Giving Thanks Giveaway 2010!
We’re going to kick things off with DancesToGo.com
DancesToGo.com creates fun and ready to teach downloadable dance routines for dance studio and elementary school teachers and their students.
Knowing first-hand how busy dance studio owners and dance teachers are with classes and competitions, two women from Southwestern Ontario, Canada, Frances Hellens McDonald and Lisa Bondy, created this unique resource to provide ready-made non-syllabus practice and performance routines.
They offer a collection of dances by award winning choreographers and talented performers whose artistic backgrounds include dance, music, drama, and television. Incorporating creative movement and props, their preschool routines are perfect for energetic little ones. Meanwhile, DanceToGo’s classical selections will inspire the young dancer. These selections are sure to put a smile on each and every dancer (and their parents!).
All routines are available instantly and for each one DancesToGo supplies an iTunes link to suggested music, which can be purchased separately. Also available for many of their preschool routines is a video download of the dance, performed by an instructor.
Teachers can download easy-to-read notes with footwork and arm movements, music, and/or video right to their iPod, iPhone, iTouch, or iPad, then head straight to the studio.
DancesToGo wants to give away ONE $25 dollar gift-certificate to THREE different Dance Advantage readers.
With prices ranging from $1.99 to 3.99 per download, this will buy a number of routines for use in your classes.
