It’s true- there’s a LOT of dance stuff happening! You just need to know where to find it. So to help you out (as I always do), here’s my line-up of recommended and must-do activities:
— 1) ADULT HIP HOP DANCE CLASSES: I taught some amazing hip hop classes at Laurier University for charity yesterday. A few of the conversations I had with students just reinforced the fact that we ALL need dance in our lives, no matter our age. To be inspired and motivated, to feel healthy, to reconnect with a past passion, or even if just to beat boredom.
** Congratulations to the 39 brave new students that signed up to dance last week! **
If you need to dance, for whatever reason that’s important to you, read the info on my site and DO SOMETHING. Here’s the link: http://www.ShawnByfield.com
— 2) IMPACT: Inspiration : Motivation : Passion : Attitude : Choice : Training
IMPACT was a concept created by the Inspirational Education Program Foundation. It was designed to address issues of drug abuse, violence, and obesity among youth, by making them aware that they have a ‘choice’. Instead of reinforcing the negative aspects of youth related problems, IMPACT focuses on motivating youths to choose healthier lifestyles.
I’ll be choreographing bits of this show, which involves hip hop, breakdance, martial arts, acrobatics and spoken word. I’m also doing a SICK performance in this show with a percussionist and beatboxer… Look for some of us on Breakfast Television NOVEMBER 5th. http://www.Impact2007.ca
— 3) SWEAT! The Ultimate Dance Convention schedule has been finalized and is now available for download online at www.feverdancechampionships.com
We look forward to seeing you all as we welcome EDDIE GARCIA, RICHARD O’SULLIVAN, GINGER COX, BRIL BARRETT & our latest addition to the SWEAT faculty ALINA ADJEMIAN, to the PARADISE BANQUET HALL (Toronto) Sunday November 4th.
All the links are there for you to visit and GET INVOLVED. Let me rephrase that… Get Involved TODAY. Life is passing you by. Amazing things are happening all around you- while you make up excuses for why you “can’t” do something. Stop making excuses and live your life to the fullest.
I’ll be your cheerleader, shouting “YES YOU CAN!” every step of the way.
Lastly, I’ll be in Regina this weekend for the GEMINI AWARDS. In case you didn’t know, I’ve been nominated for an award this year! So check your tv listings to find out what channel it’s on this Sunday night. I’m not really expecting to leave with a statue, just being recognized is amazing.
But there’s nothing wrong with having your cake and eating it too! 😉 Cross your fingers,
