Reminder: Invitation to the Dance Movie Blogathon


Time to Warm Up Your Blogging Muscles

Invitation to the Dance Movie Blogathon

Opens Soon!

Starting this Sunday, the first Invitation to the Dance Movie Blogathon grand battements its way into the blogosphere. We’re very excited to be hosting this waltz through dance films, and we’ve already heard from some participants that their entries are waiting in the wings. I can’t wait to see what they’ve come up with, and I hope you feel the same. It’s not too late to participate. All the information you need can be found here.

I’m going to find this blogathon particularly exciting and challenging because from Thursday through Saturday—Fred Astaire’s birthday—I’ll be blogging near the sands of Waikiki. Yes, I couldn’t arrange airline tickets for May 11, as I planned, so I’ll be coming to you from the lobby of the Ohana East Hotel in Honolulu. In consideration of the great time difference between certain regions of the mainland and Hawaii (not to mention my desire to spend time with the hubby on our first real vacation in three years), I’ll be getting up as early as I can to make the rounds of the participating blogs and link their entries here. So mahalo in advance for your patience.

BIFFlogobrownsmall.jpgOne benefit of my trip to Hawaii is that I will be blogging from the Third Annual Big Island Film Festival (assuming I can find wifi somewhere on the Kohala Coast). The hubby and I have our film choices made and will be attending special events where I hope to interview some film luminaries who will be attending. So stay tuned for that the weekend after the blogathon. l
