Who Else Wants To Become A Top Choreographer, Director, Pop Sensation Or Television Celebrity? ** Here’s The SECRET **

17 Jun THINK BIGGER!

Shawn Byfield Jason Priestley

DANCERS!

Listen. I’m actually quite upset…

There’s a whole world of opportunity out there. You can do anything you put your mind to…

So Why Is Shawn So Upset?

Because too many dancers only aspire to be a “backup dancer” for some artist. That’s their DREAM. And that’s fine…

…But why not dream bigger?

What’s the harm in having a more creative, fulfilling idea of your future? Why limit yourself to being in the background, when you were born with more to offer?

You can do and become literally ANYTHING you want. I truly believe this, and you should too. If you want to become an award-winning choreographer, popular vocalist, famous director, best-selling author or TV celebrity you need to…

THINK BIGGER!

THINK BIGGER!

The Secret To Instantly Expanding Your Reach…

What’s the secret? It’s simple. All you need to do is just THINK BIGGER. Think about this:

Why not become a nationally respected pop artist, and have your OWN backup dancers?

Or why not write your own play, cast yourself as the lead, and YOU be the director?

I can go on and on. I was fortunate to be an artistic consultant, dance choreographer AND played an actor on a national television show, Working The Engels (Global TV.) And guess what? It’s airing on NBC this summer! Which means not just Canada, but the entire North America will watch.

Just one example of a THINK BIGGER mentality. That opportunity only came my way because I’ve been preparing for it.

BONUS: I worked side-by-side with Director Jason Priestley (see photo above) and 1st AD Mark Pancer. Look them up if you don’t know who they are.

Life opens up opportunities to you, and you either take them or stay afraid of taking them. – Jim Carrey

Another example:

Theatre productions are hard to come by in Toronto. So, I co-wrote AND choreographed my own musical (i Think i Can) that was not only nominated for awards (and won,) it thrilled our audience every single performance. AND, it was remounted for another successful run at the National Arts Centre, proudly in the nation’s capital.

FYI: The story in my show was “told” through tap dance. Now you don’t see THAT on a regular.

I’m so grateful to be a Gemini Award nominee! Holy eff! I’m also a Dora Award Winner because a show I created was more outstanding than We Will Rock You! Who can say that? I actually can. That’s an honour that makes me teeth smile.

And… I’m HAPPY. Because what I do is friggin’ FUN.

BTW: Want to pay your rent? Artists always go through the financial roller-coaster… but thinking bigger PAYS WAY BETTER than being a backup dancer. Just saying. ;-)

IMPORTANT! Read (Don’t Skip, READ) This FULL DISCLOSURE

You also deserve to be happy. And you can be. But don’t be fooled! You need to know this in advance:

It doesn’t come easy. Just like any other field, the Entertainment biz is HARD.

So to get you started, use these three EXTREMELY important habits you need to develop to have success in your future career:

  1. You have to suck it up and WORK HARD (and put in all the effort required)

  2. You absolutely must have a PROACTIVE MINDSET (not a reactive mindset)

  3. You need to constantly EXPAND YOUR SKILL SET (to attract new opportunities)

Are you SERIOUS about making a career out of your craft?

Do you want to be offered MORE OPPORTUNITIES?

Are you interested in MAKING GOOD MONEY doing what you do?

If yes, you should learn from the people that can help you get there. I say this, because not everyone can. There’s a lot of talk out there, and not enough walk.

With that said, I’m currently putting an intense course together that you might want to attend, that if you’re an upcoming dancer, model, actor or entrepreneur helps you get started on the RIGHT path, the SMART way.

Comment below or email me. Let me know if you’re interested and tell me about your dreams. I’m here to help! But you’ll be stuck in the same place if you don’t contact me and take ACTION.

I look forward to hearing from you!
