During the Washington Auto Show from January 23-27, Toyota will be giving away four cars to winners in its Dancing for Toyotas competition. For three nights, the convention center will become a ballroom, and lucky contestants will vie for the winner-take-all shot at that Matrix they've had their eye on. And just like the show the car is based on, amateur dancers will be paired with a professional dancer, in this case one from the Arthur Murray Dance Studio.
Then, under the glaring auto show lights and cameras that will bring the show to the entire web audience, twirlers will get their chance to foxtrot, salsa, waltz, tango, rhumba, swing, or cha-cha for the chance to win a car. A fourth Toyota will be given to the randomly chosen viewer who picks the correct winners.
You have until noon on Friday, January 4 to get your videotaped contest auditions in. And since you'll be judged on presentation, talent, showmanship, and personality, you'd better bring your A-game. Could be time to dust off those Tivo'd episodes of Dancing with the Stars, eh? Check out www.dancingfortoyotas.com for the official rules.
