A Reminder To All Aspiring Dancers…

Thank you to #ShowtimeDancePromotions! Miss Christie (aka my Glamazon) and I had a mind-blowing week. 😃😄

Congratulations to EVERY SINGLE DANCER who walked on stage. You did it! 🤩

*** ALWAYS REMEMBER ***

If you’re the strongest dancer in the class… then you need a NEW class. You only get better by rising to a challenge. Surround yourself with people who motivate, push, and inspire you to reach higher.

“How are you going to soar with eagles when you’re hanging around pigeons?”

Go get it! #flyhigher 🦅 #youcanDOthis #greatcanadiandancechallenge

Dear Parents

Congratulations to every dancer at Sparkle Dance Festival! I had the absolute best time with you. Let’s do this again. 😄

*** DEAR PARENTS ****
This group and others like it, represent less than 0.01% of our population. But they are 100% of our future. 💯

Invest in their goals and dreams, cheer them on, help them rise to new challenges. Dance festivals and other similar events give young dancers many of the skills and experiences they need to become contributing, loving, and essential members of our society.

Because you never know…. just one comment from an professional adjudicator could be exactly what they needed to hear. 🗯️ It could be the catalyst that put sparks in their minds, and a burning desire in their heart.

Give them the chance to set themselves on FIRE! 🔥

Important LIFE Lesson Everytime You Step On Stage

All smiles judging at Sparkle Bright Dance Festival in Camrose Alberta! 😁

It’s a Festival style event, which means categories are roughly 30 minutes. Once a category ends, those dancers return to the stage to receive feedback. No waiting for a video days or weeks later, the growth starts NOW. 🕒

As always, I share stories, teach life lessons, and show examples. One important LESSON I shared was this:

“Respect the stage. Every time you dance, perform as if it’s your LAST time. How would you dance differently if you knew tomorrow it was all over?”

Have YOU thought about it?

Would you perform differently?

Would you LIVE differently? 🤔

AMAZING! How Neuroscience Affects Your Daily Life

Neuroscience is amazing!

Neuroscience is basically the science of the brain, how it communicates to itself and how it makes our body work. One of the most fascinating observations about the brain is this… The quality of your thoughts 🤔 has a huge impact on the quality of your LIFE. 🌞

Science says we think somewhere around 50,000 thoughts DAILY. And many of those thoughts are how we feel about ourselves. 💭

That’s a lot of thoughts!!

So. If we’re gonna think that much, let’s give our brain thoughts that are nurturing, healthy and encouraging! 😁

Why I Love This Picture

The reason I love this photo? I love this photo because I’m the odd one out. I’m clearly the only male.

Ladies!

Here’s one of many examples of what intelligent, creative, intuitive, and passionate women we have all around us. For whatever stupid reason we don’t see enough pictures like this.

Both our recent guests at Turn Out Radio are vibrant leaders doing heartfelt, meaningful work in Toronto. Yasssss ladies! 👊

BTW: The producers of our show? WOMEN. 👊

Our sound engineer? WOMAN. 👊

Our interns and production assistants? WOMEN. 👊

My co-hosts? You guessed it… WOMEN! Who by the way had an idea, teamed up, ***supported each other *** and CREATED a radio show (not a podcast on someone’s laptop- a LIVE STUDIO BROADCAST in an actual radio station) that’s heard across country and globally online.

They literally made sh!t happen.

Who does that? Oh right, WOMEN DO. And fyi, these boss babes tell ME what to do, not the other way around. Sure I share input. But at the end of the day… I know who’s in charge. ♀️♀️♀️

Look Around!

To all the ladies out there, try doubting yourself less and trusting yourself more. Because look around! Clearly you are by far the smarter and more capable species at setting and getting everything you want. Am I right? So keep doing you. Your family needs you. The marketplace needs you. The world definitely needs more YOU.

And bonus: I know it’s rough sometimes, but most times I wouldn’t know because you make it look so damn EASY. If that’s not a reason to roar, I don’t know what is. 💕

Yes Ladies!

I’m totally aware that you don’t need to hear this from me. Yes, I understand you know this already. But I’ve been your supporter for years and gosh damn I’m proud of what you’re capable of! So please forgive me for rooting for you. Is that ok?

And sorry guys… Let’s get our sh!t together and catch up.

So that’s why I love this picture, and why I hope you do too. 👊

The Importance Of Having A Coach

It’s true: People at the top of their game rarely do it alone. They always have the best team pushing and challenging them to new heights.

Since the very beginning, successful people around the world in every field imaginable had coaches in their corner lead them to where they want to go. The truly smart ones know the benefit of keeping coaches around- even when they reach their final destination.

Because there’s ALWAYS more to learn, and there’s always room for improvement.

The right coach has the ability to pull out the best in people by asking the right questions, allowing you to discover the answers, and helping you to see yourself better than you are.

No matter what you do, or plan on doing: Never underestimate the importance of having a coach… the RIGHT coach behind you!

TEACHERS: Why A Little Encouragement Can Do Wonders

Shawn Byfield teaches the next generation of dancers.

Hey teachers, a little encouragement can go a long way!

Never underestimate the power of your words with your students. The words that come out of your mouth matter. I know sometimes it doesn’t feel like it… But some of it will *actually* stick!

Encouragement is always memorable. So try your best to make sure whatever you DO say, sticks for the right reasons.
