Tendus Under A Palm Tree gives its blog readers access to the everyday life of a professional ballet dancer living and working in one of the most glamorous and trendy places in the world, Miami Beach.
That ballet dancer is Miami City Ballet corps member, Rebecca King.
Rebecca’s site has been named a Top Dance Blog in our contest here at Dance Advantage and is popular with people who know ballet and those who don’t. She shares her experiences, interviews other professionals in the field, pens essays on Balanchine and topics important to the art form, and waxes on ballet in mainstream media. She does it all to educate and excite the public about what she does for a living.
In addition to starting her own social media company, Rebecca has recently launched a line of T-shirts. It all began with her “Keep Calm and Tendu On” catchphrase. Now she’s gone a bit Nutty with a new “Keep Calm” tee that’s just right for the holiday season.
Rebecca is giving away ONE “Keep Calm and Dream of Sugar Plums” t-shirt to TWO readers.
This fitted “scarlet red” 100% combed cotton jersey shirt featuring TENDUS’ slogan phrase, “Keep Calm and Dream of Sugar Plums” is the perfect way for you or your favorite dancer to remember the 2012 Nutcracker Season!
(A note on sizing: Rebecca suggests a small for children, a medium for petite adults, and large/XL for a comfortable fit.)
