It’s that time again… time for another Dance Blog Challenge! If you want to read more about why I’m doing this, read this post. Then come back and join the fun!
This month’s blog challenge is “Day In The Life” post. Take one of your busiest dance days, bring your camera (or camera phone) and take lots of pictures from the moment you wake up until you return to bed. Or if you’re an overachiever, make a video!
This month’s challenge is a bit more involved than last month’s, but that’s what makes it fun. I will try to vary the ‘involvement’ of each post so if you’re not feeling quite up to the challenge this month, do an easier one like January’s photo challenge or wait to see what March brings.
Post your photos or video (with or without narration… its up to you) on your blog and leave a comment with the link here!
I can’t wait to see what everyone’s studios and dance lives look like! And if you’re not actively taking or teaching classes, you can participate too… I want to see what you do in your job or school everyday. And snap a quick picture of an arabesque in the hallway while you’re at it… the point is to have fun!
Just make sure if you do take pictures of other people that they are ok with you putting their lovely faces on the internet. Or use photo editing software crop or blur their faces 🙂
Think your life is boring or need ideas of what to document? Keep reading after the jump for ideas.

Attention all dance bloggers – I am excited to announce that starting in January, I am going to be posting monthly blogging challenges called “Dance Buzz Blog Challenge”. I hope you all find a few that sound like fun to participate in.
WHY AM I DOING THIS?
I enjoy being part of a community of dance bloggers and I think it will be fun to get different perspectives or learn new things about the bloggers themselves.
I also enjoyed participating in Pas de Trois when that was going on, and I miss the inspiration.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
Hopefully these challenges will jump-start your writer’s block, should you encounter that anytime soon. The next time you’re stumped at what to write about, you can check out all the challenges for inspiration.
And you get to add this sweet badge to your blog if you’d like. BONUS! (To add the badge to your page, save the image to your computer and upload it to your blog).

SO… HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
After I announce the challenge question or theme, write your own blog post related to that theme. Then add a comment on the original challenge post (on this blog) so everyone can share.
DO I HAVE TO POST IN THE SAME MONTH AS THE CHALLENGE?
No. Absolutely not. I am doing it by month because I think that is a reasonable time period for me to come up with another challenge. If you decide to do the January challenge in July, so be it – just please still add a comment to the challenge post so we can all share!
CAN I SUGGEST A CHALLENGE?
Yes! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below.
SO WHAT’S JANUARY’S CHALLENGE?
You’ll have to wait until January to find out… but I can tell you that it is a fun one!
