Dance Blog Contest

8 Jan

January 24th 2013 marks 2 years and 93 Dancer/Choreographer features. It has been a gratifying  journey to give Toronto Dancers and Choreographers a platform to be recognized. SOOOOOOOOOOOOO I’ve decided to enter a Dance Blog contest for TOP Dance Blog run by Nichelle Strzepek Founder and Editor of The Dance Advantage.  When I started this blog I didn’t necessarily plan for all these incredible things to happen. For the past 2 years my mission has been to Recognize, Showcase and Nurture The Dancers and Choreographers of Toronto. This blog has opened the door to incredible opportunities I could never have imagined not only for myself but for many Dancers in the city. I want to continue to create more opportunities and shine a light on the Toronto and Canadian Dance community. Help T.D.O.T. be the Top Dance Blog of 2013. I can’t thank you enough for supporting my vision……All I need you to do is comment on this post by Jan 20th and if I make it to the second round I will ask you again to vote! Tell me what you think of the blog. If you’re a past feature let me know if it has benefited you in anyway. SAY ANYTHING lol That’s it! 2 min is all I need, ok maybe 5 depending on how fast you type!

Toronto is swimming in dancing and choreographic talent and this blog has really brought this to the forefront. With close to 100 dancers and choreographers profiled to-date, no other blog has given so many people the opportunity to present themselves and their talents to the world. This blog is a Top Dance Blog. Bravo Nikki!

    Dancers come in many different forms of expressions. Your dance may not move across a dance floor, instead its your words you publish on your blog that dances across the screen. It’s a movement that communicates, celebrates, and promotes Dance. Thank you!

  52. Monika January 18, 2013 at 2:36 pm #

    Love your blog Nikki! Keep up the awesome work 🙂

  53. Dee J January 18, 2013 at 8:22 pm #

  55. Kojo "TUCH" Mayne January 19, 2013 at 12:24 pm #

    This blog is a great avenue for dancers and choreographers in Toronto to be recognized by many people who might not be familiar with them! As a dancer & choreographer who has been featured on the blog, I was able to share a little bit of my background, experience & advice to fellow dancers/people who may not be familiar with my work! We need to support our home town talent and this blog does just that! Thank you Nikki!

  56. ADDY CHAN January 20, 2013 at 12:56 pm #

    I love The Dancers of Toronto website. It gives you up to date info on the dance community in Toronto, which is great for me because I moved out to the east coast seven years ago and until this website came along I didn’t have a place where I could get updated. Although I don’t dance, my niece has danced for the last 20 so it’s a big part of my life.

  68. Bliss Johnson January 22, 2013 at 4:26 pm #

    Awesome job Nikki on your TDOT blog. Great way to help put other dancers and choreographers out there it just goes to show how much Love you have for dance. And trust me I know 🙂 ❤

  72. popdropandroll January 22, 2013 at 10:51 pm #

    Blogs like this are key to showcasing and providing a platform for the city’s dancers to be seen! Hats off to Nikki for all the hard work.

    Nikki I am so very proud of all the work you do to make dance such a big part of your life. From the time you were a teenager at Cawthra working so hard to dance your butt off, to creating and nurturing a blog about dance that helps not only yourself, but promotes the amazing dancers and choreographers that need to be showcased. Canada has a huge amount of talent (you are one of them). You know the ropes and speak from the heart. No matter what you are a genuine, talented and inspirational young woman who invokes the same in others. You are already a winner. Much love and keep doing what you do.
