It’s time to grow. It’s time to reach the next level. TAPDANCE MASTERY and HIPHOP DANCE WORKOUT will rock your world!

These classes are for dancers who want to break away from boring and actually see tangible PROGRESS week, after week, after week. Too many times, dancers come to class and get frustrated, because they’re keep returning at the same level…

…Unfortunately, nothing improves if there’s no consistent, weekly effort. You have to WORK AT IT.

These new sessions will give dancers that satisfaction of PROGRESS. When you know you’ve committed to a tap dance or hip hop dance class every single week, when you have to practice what you’ve learned, and when everyone expects to see you in dance class next week, same time, same place, you become accountable for your progress.

And Here’s The Best Part…

The best part? Because there’s a room full of friends supporting and rooting for you each and every week, all striving to improve their dance skills also, you quickly start to SEE the difference. You FEEL the difference. You BECOME better.

It just works.

90% of success in life is just SHOWING UP.

If you want to get better, commit to being better. Challenge yourself to doing something better. Surround yourself with those who strive to be better.

TAPDANCE MASTERY and HIPHOP DANCE WORKOUT are the classes that push you to get there.

I’m looking for a few positive people with courage and commitment who want to see growth in their dance skills AND also in fitness level. The coming new dance term at www.BDXstudio.com will take you there, you’ll see. Get excited!

Drop me a line- what do YOU want to get better at? Leave your thoughts below,

Introducing: Toronto International Youth Dance Festival 2014

NEWSFLASH: Toronto International Youth Dance Festival is happening!

If you didn’t know, If you don’t hear from me it’s because I’m always working on something. This one is big…

I’m very honoured to be on the Board of Directors of Toronto’s first festival supporting our next generation of dancers. I’ve partnered with some of the TOP leaders in the Canadian and international dance community, and we’re EXCITED. This is the first year, and we’re showcasing young dance talent.

If you’re interested in performing, we have a few slots still available so email me TODAY.

So, Why Toronto?

Because we are one of the most multicultural and diverse cities on EARTH. In Toronto, we are a microcosm of our ethnically diverse planet, and all the dance styles that span the globe can be tapped right here in our city.

And, as seen on So You Think You Can Dance Canada, we definitely have a TON of talent right here. Let’s remind Canada what an inspiration DANCERS are!

And Why Youth?

Because, well, why not? Dance gives youth an opportunity to develop the exact same leadership skills as athletes- perseverance, teamwork, discipline, courage, and confidence.

We have the Pan/Am games coming to Toronto next year. But what about our young dancers? They train just as hard and bust their butts in every class (or SHOULD be!) I started dancing at age six with jazz and tap dance, and it has brought me a wonderfully inspiring life I never imagined.

Dance is also an excellent, positive activity for youth to develop healthy habits, build solid relationships and explore unlimited creative possibilities…

…so we’ve created an organization that supports our next generation of performers, artists and leaders in our community. Note that I say leaders- because 1) it takes a true champion to be brave enough to embrace dance, and 2) some of our planet’s greatest societies involve artists as part of a way of life.

Impatient? READ THIS… How Does This Popular Movie Quote Relate To Your Current Life?

24 Jun wpid-wp-1403645801599.jpg

So in my world, so much can change in 8 hours! Here’s a real-TIME story unfolding right now:

Two hours ago I was at home in my underwear. Now, I’m lying down comfortably in my honeywagon, after a major movie production sent a driver to pick me up and bring me to set. Yup, I’ve been requested.

How The Heck Did I Get Here? (And Other Random Ramblings)

image

If you want it, you have to PREPARE for it. I’m constantly striving to become the person I am capable of being. Working hard is NOT the same as working smart. Understand the difference, then do both! Sometimes that means late nights or earlier mornings. Many times it requires doing something that makes you uncomfortable.

Everything you want in life is just outside your comfort zone.

Listen. Whatever you want you’re not going to get right away. I’ve worked diligently for years to build a reputation of being an expert in my field. So now, sometimes unexpectedly, I land a gig and appear on set literally hours later. Pretty cool sh*t. :-)

There’s a popular saying in the movie biz:

“I’ll get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too!”

That’s a good one, no? Damn witches…

But the one I’m referring to is actually “Hurry Up And Wait.” It’s important to notice how that directly relates to our personal growth as well. Invest in yourself NOW. Work hard NOW…

…Then be patient. You might not see instant success but you will reap the benefits in the future.

Wait for it. It’s coming!
