Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s Ugly Crack Habit, Booze Addiction And Spiralling Depression Saved By Dance Class Intervention
(Toronto ON- November 18, 2013) It’s not easy to kick a bad habit. But kicks, along with jumps and basic footwork- are exactly what Toronto Mayor Rob Ford needs. A hip hop dance class is a healthy choice that will finally end the Toronto Mayor’s shocking substance abuse, anger issues and his overuse of alcohol.
“Enough is enough! It’s time for an intervention. Our Mayor needs to know there is help. And dancing is a proven alternative to the crack pipe,” shares leading dance authority Shawn Byfield, and owner of popular dance school Byfield Dance Experience. “Dance puts you in a great mood by boosting endorphins in your body, which gives you a rush and that ‘high’ feeling. Drugs and alcohol do that artificially. Plus, a sweaty session on the dance floor helps you relax after.”
With the multitude of tasks required to manage city hall, no wonder the city’s Mayor is under so much pressure to escape the daily stress. Running Canada’s top marketplace clearly has a toll on Toronto’s top employee. Byfield’s prescription? “A beginner hip hop dance class twice weekly is an excellent start. I’d even give him free classes because I know it will change his attitude right away- and that’s exactly what our city deserves.”
With all the bad press of his overuse of drugs and alcohol, Mayor Ford has nothing to lose by trying a natural alternative. But there’s a catch, Byfield warns. “Dancing can be quite addictive… But dance is the purest form of stimulant with zero side effects. In fact, Ford may even lose a few pounds.”

“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.
