It’s that time of year again and I’m not talking about The Nutcracker (although it is coming up – Joffrey‘s opens next Friday!). Dance Advantage is hosting the 2nd Annual Top Dance Blog contest!! Last year RB barely lost in the Dance News/Criticism category, but tied for 5th place overall. With your help, I know this year we can do better.
This year RB will be in the Speaking Dance category. All you need to do is make a comment *ON THIS POST* telling why you read RB, what you like about it, a favorite post…anything. The first round of voting (by comment amounts) ends Tuesday, December 20th. The top 20 blogs with the most comments will then be entered as a finalist to be the TOP DANCE BLOG OF 2011. Voting for the top slots will take place December 27 – 30, but right now, RB needs you to comment away.
Thank you in advance for all of your support. Again, all you need to do is leave a comment below ON THIS POST. Let’s go!
