Virtual Dance Competition Entry Giveaway!

0 comments
Imagine a dance competition with no hotel fees, no gas, no driving.  You don't have to get up at 5 am and stay until midnight.  You don't have to deal with cranky people.  You don't have to pay $12 for a program.  All you have to do is DANCE!!!!

That's what Virtual Dance Competition offers you--a chance to show off your skills...and just DANCE!


I don't know about you, but my last competition bill was nearly as much as my house payment.  Can I tell you how much it costs to enter a number at Virtual Dance Competition?  Can I?  $29.  EVEN FOR SOLOS!!!

But guess what?  We're going to give away FOUR entries absolutely free!  We want you to try this competition out...and tell your friends how much fun it was!

I'm sure you have lots of questions.  I did.  I found most of the answers here in the FAQ and in the Guidelines.

The contest will end Monday, April 7 at midnight.  You need to submit your videos by April 30th (as that's when your winning code will expire.)

So what do you need to do to enter?  Tweet about the contest.  Every day that you do, you get another entry.  You can also like Virtual Dance Competition  and Dance Parent Problems on Twitter and Facebook (if you already do, say so and you're entered!)  It's that simple.

Winners will be notified on Monday, April 7.  Please respond by Friday, April 11 to receive your code.

How to Train to be Dance Mom

0 comments
Becoming a dance mom is no simple feat. Most people don't understand all of the preparation and training that goes into it. I've outlined a few simple pointers for you, should you be considering a career as dance mom.

Set Your Boundaries
Sit down and carefully plan out how much money you’re willing to spend, how far you’re willing to travel, and what your guidelines are for two piece costumes.  Then tear up that piece of paper and burn it because it’s worthless anyway.


Learn the Dance Mom  Way
Study dance moms who have come before you. (For those of you who are new here, those people on t.v. are not acceptable subject for study.) Talk to veteran dance moms.  Observe their rhinestoning skills, ,quick movements during costume changes, and check writing abilities.  Mimic these in your day-to-day life until you have them mastered.


Remember that Silence is Golden
The moment you tell someone you’re a dance mom, you’re going to be met with a barrage of stupid questions.  “Why do you spend so much money?” “What’s she going to do with that?” and my personal favorite… “Are you like the moms on that show?” Avoiding these questions may help keep your criminal record squeaky clean.


Acquire Weaponry


Physical Training
Stage 1: Run up and down a flight of stairs while dressing and undressing a doll.
Stage 2:  Hide several of your child’s dance accessories. Then, deprive yourself of sleep for 36 hours. Chug a Redbull.  Now have a scavenger hunt.
Sate 3: Give a cat some catnip. Turn off the lights.  Now, try to put a dress and eyelashes on the cat.




Following these simple guidelines will have you acting as a champion dance mom in no time!
