Can U Shake It Like A Salt Shaker?

Here’s a RED hot little excerpt from Get Up & Groove: Step Into Greatness!

It was during this heated moment that Mr. T. worked up a fierce combination of moves. It was like a doctor on an operation table using a number of instruments that zipped, zapped, diced and spliced. I mean these weren’t your ordinary run of the mill kind of moves either. These were fiery hot, chest popping, high kicking; booty-shaken concoctions that if drunk in liquid form would make even a witch doctor’s hair stand up a little higher on his head. This was clearly all the motivation we needed to cut loose, and “Shake It Like A Salt Shaker!”

Set The Stage

A good start teaches you how to trust your own judgment whether you’re right or wrong. It gives you reassurance because sometimes as you’re learning and growing you will get lost in the middle. Now here’s what a good ending does.

The ending teaches you the importance of completing what you’ve learned. Groove On Here:

Shimmy Like The Rent Is Due!

Mr. T. made us work our little bun buns off. The class really was like a taste of Techno dance “heaven” where each week he opened his “good book.” And then he’d flip through the pages to joyously find one of his diverse and mind blowing dance routines that encompassed anything from rock, theatre, contemporary, or whatever style Mr. T. decided to dish out.

It made me love being able to “Sweat with the Best” in a room full of amazingly talented dancer/performers five days a week. Go Here For More:

 One of the best ways to do this is to get physical. What this does is it releases what’s known as “feel good endorphins.” So I say Dance, Feel Good; Step Into The Groove!”

“Lean, Mean, Plus Size Dancing Machine”

Okay, so I need to set the stage regarding my first dance class. I walked into the dance studio and moved straight to the back of the classroom, because remember, at that time I functioned in a cloud of invisibility. I mean I was looking for a spot where I felt the most comfortable had a good view of the Instructor, and of course I wanted no one behind me. Once the music began and the movement started, it seemed as if the rest of the class disappeared. I immediately transformed and got into the groove. I felt free to express myself and move. I didn’t even see the “skinny girls” that surrounded me, because finally I found a passion for movement that I solely enjoyed.  [At this point in my life, any kind of movement was better than nothing at all, and I was doing my best to keep up and end on the beat like everyone else.]

The Carla Flagg Story (in her own words)


 From a young age and even to this day, I’ve always liked to watch folks dance. My favorite dance movies are “West Side Story,” “The Red Shoes,” “Dirty Dancing,” “Save the Last Dance,” and of course, “Flash Dance.” Can’t you just hear the song now, “She’s a maniac, maniac on the floor and she’s dancing like she’s never danced before.” I can remember being in high school, wanting to rip my sweatshirt for that cute off the shoulder look from the movie (but never would, because my mother would be upset if I ruined good clothes), locking myself in my bedroom, blaring the music and trying to dance like Jennifer Beal from the movie. I guess you can say I am a “closet dancer” and would find some tranquility and peace for my soul in the motion and music of dance. Some people find their sanctuary in the church or walking along the beach or sitting in the park, but imagine if you will a sanctuary of movement that can be found in a room with hardwood floors, mirrors on the walls, and a stereo system, which is fondly known as the dance studio. But before I get started, let me introduce myself.
