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,

Hip Hop Class Toronto: This Video Shows Best Example of Where Passion And Displine Will Take You

Behind the scenes of an adult hip hop dance class in Toronto, every Monday and Tuesday night at my totally fantastic dance school Byfield Dance Experience.

I like showing “fly on the wall” footage, where you get to see unrefined choreography, lots of love and tons of sweat. Just check out my shirt. =) I share inspiration, and challenge dancers to perform with emotion, musicality and intensity in every class.

BY THE WAY…

It’s important for you to know this:

Most of the adult dancers in the video below are NOT trained dance studio people. Most of them started with me at zero. Total Newbies. Only a handful have previous training, but many years ago. This is an example of where passion and discipline will take you over time.

So when’s the best night for you to visit? Every night is the best night for class! Check out the video below to see one of my hip hop dance classes…

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!

How YOU See Yourself: Is Your Self-Image Holding You Back?

Tonight’s wisdom:

“Science and psychology have isolated the one prime cause for success or failure in life. It is the hidden self-image you have of yourself.” – Bob Proctor

In tonight’s hip hop dance class, I touched on how we oooh and ahhh over dancers killing it in videos, working their confidence on TV shows, being fierce on YouTube. But then when it comes time for US to perform in class…

…we shy away from our sex appeal, become timid, self-doubt, and for whatever reasons we put in our head… we don’t share our confident self.

What’s the ONLY difference between you and those dancers on YouTube?

They made a DECISION to BE confident. To BE sexy. To BE somebody that lets their passion shine through. They all had to learn “steps” just like you and I. From count one to count 8. Anyone can learn dance steps.

But what sets those who inspire you apart from the rest is the fact that they lead with passion and self-confidence, among other things that have NOTHING to do with steps. I believe in every single person that comes my way. You’ll learn the steps. That’s secondary.

I encourage you all to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF first. Believe you’re just as capable. And believe you’re worthy of praise not just from your teacher or coach, but from YOURSELF.

Give yourself the benefit of the doubt- you CAN be just like them. JUST BELIEVE, make a DECISION, and stop getting in your own way.
