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:

“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:

Hip Hop Class At BDX Toronto

BDX Hip Hop Class Beginner & Intermediate Classes

Think you “can’t” dance? With the famous words of our favourite Gary Coleman (RIP) I say to you: “What chu talkin’ bout Willis?”

Here’s proof that REGULAR PEOPLE can (and DO) learn to dance- very well I might add. I’m not talking years here; I’m talking months. Watch this footage from a hip hop class at BDX in Toronto.

Almost everyone you see in this video started from zero when they first came to my Toronto hip hop dance classes. And they’re regular people just like you.

So remove the sentence “I can’t dance” from your vocabulary permanently. Because if they can learn to dance… so can you, Willis!

DOCUMENTED PROOF: Dancing Helps Build Confidence

Here’s DOUCMENTED PROOF that a dance lesson helps to build confidence.

Not just women, but men also experience the esteem-boosting satisfaction a dance class brings. Not many other activities give you the freedom and openness to pose spontaneously!

Remember when we were young and fearless? We would do things and say things without inhibitions. Those were the days!

But then something changed… As we grew, we became more and more sensitive to how other people would perceive us. We developed a safety bubble to avoid ridicule and rejection. We stopped being bold, started being safe, and lost some of our confidence.

Take a look at the photos. As you can see, the power of dance allows you to recapture your strong, inner child.

From now on, know inside yourself there’s no need to hold back. Starting today, embrace your confidence. Let it out, and just pose!
