UPDATE: How To TURBOCHARGE Your Spring

Toronto dance classes at Byfield Dance Experience

[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:

New BDX Studio Blogsite!

New site for Toronto dance studio Byfield Dance Experience

New site for Toronto dance studio Byfield Dance Experience

Take a look… The brand-new Blogsite for Byfield Dance Experience is a go! I’m a bit slow, but slow and steady wins the race right? Your new BDX home away from home is finally:

“Fully automated… and unstoppable.”
– Miriam McColl in i Think i Can

Why a “Blogsite?” instead of a regular website, you ask? 5 reasons:

  1. Because we’re different. At BDX we’re interactive. And a blog let’s you connect with us through videos, photos, polls and more.
  2. Because so much happens weekly, a blog captures that energy and excitement. BDX isn’t boring, so a plain old boring website just won’t cut it.
  3. Because with a blog, it’s easy to share news and studio updates, from anywhere. At like, any time.
  4. Because unlike other studios, we think WAY outside the box. The blog allows our students to participate in our forward thinking genius.
  5. Google likes blogs. And we all like Google. Fresh, updated content keeps our dance classes easy to find in the search engine when you’re iching to throw down.

Click here to check ‘er out.

Thanks for your support friends! The steps are all coming together.

Dance info still points to my current website, but that will also change soon. New dance stuff will be on the BDX blogsite regularly, so bookmark the page, add to your favourites and DARE I suggest making it your homepage? It even looks kinda nifty in your Android phone or iThingy.

And it’s ready for you to SHARE to your peeps. Go there now and share away!

How To Experience A Better Community

Toronto Dance Studio BDX - Saori Returns to Japan

Ever wanted to make a difference? Ever want to give back to your friends, peers in need?

Well guess what… Just by supporting dance in your community, you’re ALREADY giving back. Here’s how:

Because you support dance, you show the powers that be how important it is to have a thriving arts community. Because you experience dance activities in Toronto and across Canada, our culture continues to grow creatively. How we communicate with each other, how we de-stress, how we choose to spend our dollars and what we talk about around the water cooler is often inspired by dance and the arts.

Dance has purpose! And has no prejudice. Art always inspires new ideas, creates movements, forces us to think bigger and teaches us to embrace the differences and uniqueness of all people.

Because you dance, you not only express your own inner passions and reward your body, but you also show a mutual respect for others who share in passion. Offering time, aid or resources when needed, and recognizing the passions and achievements of others is what keeps a community strong.

(Just a few ways BDX gave back to the community: Free dance classes for Thanksgiving Food Drive; Hip Hop for Haiti; Family Fitness classes and talks at deserving elementary schools; plus daily dance classes for all adults to enjoy.)

Making a difference is easier than you think. So will you share the love this holiday? Will you help grow a wonderful world? Choose an experience that enhances your life and your community.

Safe and Happy Holidays everywhere!
