A dapper new name

Spring has sprung! It’s the perfect time to turn over a new leaf and launch a name change for my blog that I’ve been pondering for a long while now. Welcome to The Dapper Dancer, here at its new domain, thedapperdancer.com.

While I loved the old name, The Music and the Mirror, I wanted a new name that incorporated a bit of my dandy personality… and also had the word dance or ballet in it. Hope you like it (and that you’ll think of me when you hear it)!

I’ll probably redirect then eventually close down the old Music and Mirror site, so if you’ve been kind enough to link from your blog, please make sure to update your link. Lastly, just a reminder to also check out the Dapper Dancer Facebook page (thedapperdancer) and my general dance-and-more Twitter feed (@jefftabaco). Thanks and keep dancin’!

Now on Facebook

The Music and the Mirror now has a Facebook page! Yay, another bit of Internet to move into and make pretty. Not that anyone had been clamoring for it (yet!), but I figure, hey, I spend a fair amount of time on Facebook…maybe you do too?

Check it out and “like” for assorted ballet and dance tidbits and of course notices of new blog posts. Enjoy!

A blog is born

Welcome! I finally decided to consolidate my occasional dance ramblings here in a new blog. Recently I kept waffling over whether to keep posting my dance diary entries in my general blog at jefftabaco.com, but I figured — hopefully — that I’d be more likely to post more often about dance if I gave it its own dedicated space. And then it was like, do I self-host it with my other site, or put it on wordpress.com, and what do I call it, and… then I thought, you know what, just pick a place to write, and write! I can always change the location or name later.

So here we are. My goal is to post at least a couple times a week, covering how ballet classes are going, what I’m reading or watching, and so forth, basically from the point of view of an adult ballet beginner. (Shout out to my tweeps!) I’ve already imported my previous dance diary entries, so the site already looks a little homey.

Enjoy, and here we go!
