diaghilev bio: give-away!


Whoop! OUP! I found a copy of Oxford University Press’s new book at my mailbox today. But alas, it’s not for me. It’s for you!

Well, one of you.

Happily, we all win something in this contest. Those of us not winning the book can still get 20% off some choice dance books.

Here’s how to play:
1. Visit and enter promotional code 29256 in the search box on the upper right-hand corner of the homepage. Then click “Go.” This will direct you to a list of nine specially-selected dance titles available at 20% off the list price…for us!

2. Choose 1 title from that list (or any OUP dance book…does anyone else dream of owning the 6-volume International Encyclopedia of Dance?) and in the Comments Section below here, write a brief note about why you’d love to have that particular book. [Don’t provide your full name or your contact information; might as well keep yourself super-safe online.]

3. On November 1, SeattleDances will subjectively choose the 5 most compelling (or interesting) notes…and do a random drawing from those 5…

4. Check back on November 1 to see if your entry won. We’ll post the winning comment and the four runners-up. The winner will be asked to send his/her contact information to and we’ll arrange for the drop-off shortly thereafter.

5. If the winner has not contacted by November 8, 2011, s/he forfeits the prize and SeattleDances will choose another (randomly) from the runners-up.

The prize:
The lucky Chosen One gets (not sacrificed in a remounting of the Diaghilev Rite of Spring! but, rather) a beautiful, new copy of the Diaghilev bio. And the rest of us can think about which of OUP’s 9 books we want to buy for 20% off. (The Diaghilev is one of them!)

Fine print? The book is in Seattle, so you (or your emissary) must be in Seattle for the drop-off.

Good luck to all!
