For all my blog-writing friends, did you know you could see what others are pinning from your blog?
I just found this out from reading this article (which is worth a read if you’re a blogger). If you go topinterest.com/source/YOURDOMAINHERE.com you can see what people have pinned from your blog, break down the most repinned or most recent.
For example, I would go to pinterest.com/source/thedancebuzz.blogspot.com to see my stats.

This week I was looking for some inspiration in the way of leaps and jumps and I found some lovely unique leaps I’d like to share so you can feel all warm and fuzzy inside too.
Now if only I could get my students to look like this…

Hopefully your day just got a little bit better by looking at these lovely leaps! I know mine did 🙂
This month’s Pinspiration is all about dancing everywhere… except the studio! I wish this would happen more often in real life.
Thank you Pinterest for finding some dancers who are graceful athletes (or is it athletes who are beautiful dancers?).
P.S. Discovered these on Pinterest (follow me!), I have tried to find credit for as many as possible – if you know the source, photographer or dancer, please leave a comment so I can add the credit.

Yes I am aware that monthly re-cap would make more sense at the end of the month, but its been a busy month! And at the end of the month we have to have yearly recaps… so here is December’s (a bit early) recap.

You can participate by creating a response by answering this question in a video: “what do YOU want people to know about dance”! I can’t wait to see people’s responses and would like to involve my students in creating a response of our own.
