Hello Dear Readers!
As this Thursday’s San Francisco Ballet 2013 Opening Night Gala (woot!) begins the season with a program to delight every SF Balletomane (woot woot!), Odette is brushing off her keyboard to continue to bring you up-to-the minute previews, interviews, ‘Newsy Bits’, reviews, video clips, and photo shoots of your favorite dancers…in her trademark ‘Let’s Celebrate the Dancers’ style (woot woot woot!).
In exhange for all the goodies Odette will bestow on her peeps this coming season, she would very dearly love to have *your* support, once again, in this years’s annual ‘Top Dance Blog Contest 2013’ sponsored by Dance Advantage: http://www.danceadvantage.net/2013/01/07/be-a-top-dance-blog
All you need to do to nominate Odette’s Ordeal into the finalist round (part 2 of the contest begins 1/24/13, when your actual votes will be summoned), is comment right here on this post (in the comment box at the bottom) by midnight on 1/22/13!
Just one single (teeny tiny, simple wimple, itsy bitsy) comment, that requires a few very generous seconds of your very busy life, will suffice.
It is important to note that commenting on *this* post (*not* Dance Advantage’s blog post) is the *only* guaranteed protection you will have from suffering an untimely death caused by:
1. A heretofore unknown planetary object crashing into your general vicinity at 149 times the speed of light (even faster than Vanessa Zahorian can turn!)
2. Hungry angst-ridden teenage zombies in drag, singing ‘Glee’s Greatest Hits’ off-key (choreographed by Myles Thatcher)
3. The Disney Villains’ Dance of Doom-Bwahahaha! (choreographed by Val Caniparoli)
4. Bubonic Plague (choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon)
5. The Wrath of Odette (Run, hide!!!)
Soooo…please take that itsy bitsy moment (right now, before you take a bite out of that healthy ballet burrito) and protect yourself from Disney villains and zombies by making that comment in the box at the bottom of this entire post that says ‘Enter your comment here’, telling me (and the world) why you love Odette’s Ordeal. A solitary sentence will do.
Thank you in advance for your support; your comments and votes won Odette’s Ordeal the #9 Dance Blog Award in the whole universe for 2012…in her first year of blogging!
See You at the Ballet!
P.S. Stay tuned for Gala Casting
