What Size Heels Do YOU Wear? Here’s Why…

Question: What size heels do you wear?

I ask because this Saturday at Byfield Dance Experience, I’m hosting a Learn To Dance In HEELS Workshop. Taught by the one and only Esie Mensah!

You’ve seen her on So You Think You Can Dance Canada, with Keisha Chante, Jully Black, AND on MuchMusic:

It’s gonna be frickin’ fierce. I’m sure you know someone who could benefit from this kind of dance class.

But here’s the thing:

From past conversations with students and similar classes, not every lady has a pair of sexy heels they feel comfortable dancing in.

So I thought I’d ask…

…Can you bring an extra pair of solid heels this Saturday? Just in case a fellow fierce diva needs to borrow yours.

See the flyer BELOW and I’ll see you there,

PS: Best that you don’t bring a pair from ALDO. Sure they look great but let’s face it, they suck from a comfort perspective.

PPS: You’ll notice you need to CALL to RSVP. Number is at the link and on the flyer. If you don’t CALL, you might not get in. I’ll post some photos on my Twitter if you miss it… Not exactly the same but that’s what happens when you’re slow to respond!

UPDATE: How To TURBOCHARGE Your Spring

[Shawn Byfield's Toronto dance email update April 3rd, 2012]

Happy April!

Spring has officially arrived. Did it hit you like it hit me? Because just the other day I had a “holy eff” moment- “It’s already April? I swear it was just New Years…”

Yup, we’ve all been busy, I haven’t even written to you in a while. And look- that sneaky Spring showed up right under our nose. In a few days, charming tulips & roses will wink at us to stop by for a whiff. Which leads me into this thought:

Success starts with showing up.

If you haven’t been “showing up” because of [insert excuse here] then take a minute to yourself right now. Inhale, and smell the roses. Got some food for your thoughts below, and it starts with:

“Why Do So Many Say YES To Drugs? So They Can Get Uncontrollably Hooked On DANCE- WITHOUT Fear Of Intervention”

Rick James once said: “Cocaine is a hell of a drug.”

Call me your pusher, man, ’cause DANCE is a hell of a drug. Once it grips you, that’s it. You’re IN. Flying high… And when that dance hit starts to disappear from your life, you pretty much get the same withdrawal symptoms as those crackheads on Intervention.

Shhhh. Come closer…

How does a year supply of dance sound? Get yourself a quick, three-pay plan for an annual membership that costs less than the “insurance” you pay your neighbourhood thug.

Go on, take it. This link gives you 365 day access to some good stuff:

“All Dance Monsters Should Pay Attention: Here’s GOOD NEWS That Can Cure Any Bad Romance”

“How To Turn Your Flabby Arms Into Sculpted Works Of Art That Make Michelangelo Weep With Jealousy”

Yeah, I said it. If you’re sitting at home wondering how to fix that damn flab where your tricep should be, then I suggest- no, I URGE you to get into our Dance Workout classes. Here’s why…

In the Dance Workout classes I personally taught last week, we focused on some serious arm toning exercises. Sure, lot’s of bitchin’ and whining from my students ’cause it felt like burning. But guess what I tell ‘em?

I tell ‘em: “You’re not gonna die from carving out a sexier body.” You’re a beautiful piece of art under that excess marble. Train for your summer! Train for your future. Come sculpt those arms. 5 Dance Workout classes weekly! Schedule:

Hip Hop Class At BDX Toronto

18 Jun

BDX Hip Hop Class Beginner & Intermediate Classes

Think you “can’t” dance? With the famous words of our favourite Gary Coleman (RIP) I say to you: “What chu talkin’ bout Willis?”

Here’s proof that REGULAR PEOPLE can (and DO) learn to dance- very well I might add. I’m not talking years here; I’m talking months. Watch this footage from a hip hop class at BDX in Toronto.

Almost everyone you see in this video started from zero when they first came to my Toronto hip hop dance classes. And they’re regular people just like you.

So remove the sentence “I can’t dance” from your vocabulary permanently. Because if they can learn to dance… so can you, Willis!
