Would you really go for it, and shock a few folk? People who didn’t believe you had it in you?

An Excerpt from New Book “Get Up & Groove: Step Into Greatness! Perform!”

Although my life has been a good one, I now realize it isn’t totally the life I’d hoped for. Instead, it’s the one I’ve settled for. Here’s what I mean. I’m not living, or pursuing my dreams, and it has been nudging at me every single day.”

Yet I know why I have not. What’s holding me back is fear! I admit it, I am afraid to face my fears. And each passing day the thought of not going for my dream is tearing me apart.” That’s why I must stop this madness, and face the music. You see I don’t want to live my life this way with ‘what ifs,’ or regrets, by not at least attempting to go for it. Therefore I …….  Hey, don’t stop now Read On!”>Choreographer Instructor Fitness</a>

An Excerpt from New Book “Get Up & Groove: Step Into Greatness! Perform!”

She paraded around like a Victoria’s Secret model working and rocking the runway; and all “in six-inch heels.” Her womanly mannerisms conveyed and displayed such confidence and strength that if celebs like Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell, and Beyoncé had been close by watching, they would have considered asking her for a lesson or two. Then I nearly fell out of my seat when I realized who she was. I thought, wow, what a striking transformation she’s made; look at how Grown and Sexy she’s become.  And the amazing thing was….

Rhythm!  Step! Stride!

Loving and Living The Experience!

An Excerpt from New Book “Get Up & Groove: Step Into Greatness! Perform!”

I was so thrilled to finally get the opportunity to take a summer visit out of town that the very thought of it gave me butterflies. Like what Michael Jackson once sang about on his unbreakable album. That’s because I worked so hard saving up my precious dollars for a special trip I knew would mean the world to me. Well, the day finally arrived. And I couldn’t believe I was stepping foot on the campus of this legendary institute.  Now here’s the deal: The fact that it was a blistering hot summer day did not dampen my excitement over auditioning for PPU’S fall enrollment.

Honestly, I was just so thrilled to be there. I was simply loving and living the experience, the city, the people, and the whole process. Now I see why a friend encouraged me to check this place out. He was right on point when he said, “just being in the rhythm and step of its atmosphere makes you want to “Groove in U R Purpose!” Especially when you get to………  Read ON!”>Choreographer Instructor Fitness</a>

Joey L. Dowdy’s “HAIR HE IS!”

 Then finally we reached the top, flung open the door, and like magic, the wizard appeared. Wow, I couldn’t believe it, “Hair He Was!” And he was dressed to conquer. Well actually, now I know, it was more like his version of dressing for success. What also caught my attention was that even though he was teaching a dance class, not one single strand of hair on his head seemed to be out of place.

But here’s what really had me puzzled. I couldn’t quite figure out why only the sides of his hair were wet, especially with all the sweating he did. It was a mystery too that his hair didn’t appear to be straight, wavy, or curly. Sure, it looked great but the texture of it seemed to have had a mind of its own. Until one day I asked a friend of mine whose hair never seemed to get fully wet either about it. What did he say?  Well, what he revealed to me shocked the…… What? Well, find out.

Useful! Valuable! Seizable?

An Excerpt from New Book “Get Up & Groove: Step Into Greatness! Perform!”

Then it dawned on me: I began to question a few things. I thought, isn’t having raw talent an asset? In fact, isn’t it true that we all start out with raw natural ability? Yet I questioned was it enough? I mean, how far can it really take you? Or can it? Does it become an access or a liability once…… Want More?

Bold! Brass! Blatant!

An Excerpt from New Book “Get Up & Groove: Step Into Greatness! Perform!”

This was when I had a longing to be one of the tough boys, or as they were better known, “homeboys.” You know the rebellious bullying type who thought they knew it all. Yeah, the ones who liked starting trouble simply because it’s supposed to be a “cool thing to do.”  Come on, I’m sure you can relate, can’t you? You must know a few like them yourself? Wouldn’t you say?

Now here’s the thing. In all reality, their so-called cool personas, and little brazen bullying ways, were nothing more than just a way for them to stand out.

GROOVE ON THIS: One Way to Seek Attention Is to Be The Attention!

The surprising thing was they had no clue that, truthfully, their bad boy mentality was a reflection of their insecurities. It was more or less a cry for help; or a camouflaged call for attention. In fact, I’ll even go a step further by saying…….

Beware: Something Unexpected Has Just Rolled Ashore!

*Know That When The Tide Turns Things Will Roll in Your Favor!

An Excerpt from New Book “Get Up & Groove: Step Into Greatness! Perform!”

I couldn’t help but notice how some would look over at her as they passed by, then let out a giggle or two as if signifying their dislike as to what she was wearing. The suddenly the atmosphere in the room changed. Why did it?  It was high tide and something unexpected had just rolled ashore.

Now all the wondering, waiting, and giggles were over. It was show-and-tell time. And this powerhouse performer was ready to take center stage and deliver. This she did indeed with an arousing performance that introduced her, and shocked some, like none other. I think it’s amazing in life how sometimes the tide will turn in your favor.
