Anyway, after a look at the schedule for this week I've decided I'm going to have the double-prize day later in the week rather than today -- works out a bit better for our sponsors that way! Besides, today's prize is soooooooo phenomenal it deserves 100% of your attention :) So read on to find out.....
"Knowing is half the battle". The consequences of not arming yourself with the right knowledge when you get out on the studio floor are at best that you don't train as efficiently as you could, and at worst an injury that could stop you dancing for life. Not cool -- we here at IHTD fully intend to be busting out our steps at our grandkids' weddings, and we want the same for you!
But we need your help, lovely readers, to do it!
To get an entry into the draw for today's prize, comment here and tell us your favourite dance or dance fitness resource (other than your teacher, who is obviously number 1!). It can be about Highland, or Irish, or dance in general, sports nutrition, cross training, mental preparation, ANYTHING that helps you prepare. Both online (websites, blogs, etc) and offline (books, magazines) resources are OK -- if its online please post the link!
Helping us out gets you an entry to win one of the BEST Highland dancing resources available:
A COMPLETE Set of Advanced Highland Training DVDs from FerlieFeet.com
10 times World Champions Deryck and Gareth Mitchelson present an invaluable resource for every dancer, competitive or not,working to improve their dancing. The dances are broken down step-by- step and then movement-by-movement with the dancers demonstrating ‘good technique’ accompanied by a technical commentary. The complete DVD set includes:
Vol. 1 & 2: Highland: Fling, Sword Dance, Seann Truibhas and Reel
Vol. 3: Jig & Hornpipe
Vol. 4: Nationals: Includes all 8 competition dances
Don't have a dance resource for us? Just want an extra entry into the contest? Visit our sponsor's website at
and tell us your favourite product from their shop in the blog comments for this post or on Facebook to get an ADDITIONAL entry into the draw (Warning! It's going to be hard to choose -- not only is this the home of the famous ToeandHeel GOLD ghillies but the teddy bears in Highland costume are sooooo cute :) I totally bought one for the Peanut -- shhh, don't tell her!)
And don't forget! EVERY ENTRY into the draws for the daily prizes gets you an additional entry into the Grand Prize draw. So lets say you're super keen and post with both a dance resource and your fave product from FerlieFeet TODAY -- this gets you FOUR entries into daily prize draw (two for each answer) and FOUR entries into the Grand Prize. Awesome!!
I also want to remind people that are entering through Twitter please please please make sure that if you have a private account that we are following you, otherwise we can't see your tweets!
