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,

EXCITING NEWS: I’ve been nominated for an award!

I’m in the top list of nominees for the Black Canadian Awards 2014. Pretty cool huh?

The last award I was nominated for was a Gemini Award in 2007. Maybe I’m slow… but I didn’t even know there was a Black Canadian Awards show. Did you know?

And why didn’t you tell me? 😉 I have no idea how many nominations I’ve already received, but I am truly humbled. You just gave me extra motivation to bring even MORE joy to people’s lives.

Here’s info on the award event:

The Black Canadian Awards ceremony is an event that reflect our commitment to showcasing and celebrating achievements of Black Canadian professionals, artists, trail-blazers and leaders within our community. The Black Canadian Awards will be hosted in Toronto on March 1st 2014 at the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Theater with over 1,000 people in attendance.

Pretty sweet. Especially since this is not just a Toronto award, but a Black CANADIAN award. I’m proud to live here. There’s a TON of residents in this Country, and apparently I’m in the top 12 nominees for “Best Dancer.”

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!
