We are pleased to announce the first ever Ballet.co & The Ballet Bag Twitter Competition:
Royal Ballet Yearbook 2010/11 Competition
Oberon Books’ Royal Ballet Yearbook has just been released and we are giving away a free copy
Entering the competition
To enter followers have to tweet the answer to the following question under the tag #RBBook:
What makes the Royal Ballet so special?
That means you have 132 characters for the answer + 8 chars for #RBBook = 140 maximum. Please don’t forget to use the hashtag, so we can locate all entries.
RB r special because they have the best repertoire #RBBook
You can enter as many times as you like between now and the close of the competition at midnight (GMT) on 10 October 2010. Entries from all over the globe are welcome.
On the 11 October Ballet.co and The Ballet Bag will each choose and announce a winner based on what we think are the best entries – the judges’ decision is, of course, final.
We look forward to your entries. Use your imagination, have fun & spread the word!

11Â October, 2010 – UPDATE:
Thanks to everyone who participated in the competition! We received many entries and it was tough for us & Ballet.co to pick only one tweet each.
After much brainstorming we are pleased to announce the winning tweets:
@CITLAAAAA (our pick)
Because of the multicultural dancers #RBBook
@seenfromafar (via Ballet.co)
Seriously talented dancers who lay their hearts out on the stage in every style. Diversity. Technique. Talent. ART. #RBBook
And our runner-up tweets:
#RBBook RB are special to me because it’s thanks to them I fell in love with ballet, and thanks to them I’m now pursuing a career in ballet!
#RBBook RB dancers are immaculate, every movement in synchrony and every step filled with emotion.
It’s still a bit too early for the May/June schedule on the ROH site (where prices are listed) but you can try browsing some of the listings using Bachtrack – for instance the June mixed bill of Scenes de Ballet/Voluntaries…
What ballets are performing in June 2011 and on what dates? How can I determine the cost of tickets and how to purchase them.
