Joey L. Dowdy’s “MIND YOUR SPEECH!”

Caution, There Is Power In Those Words!”

The good book says death and life is in the power of the tongue. Meaning, it is like a powerful weapon and can do a lot of damage if not used for the greater good. That’s why it’s important to “Mind Your Speech!”

For example: An inspiring and supportive speech can give life by lifting you up with its comforting and encouraging words.

On the other hand, a bitter and condescending speech can do quite the opposite. It can cut you down by killing your joy and ambition. So, here’s moral. When you speak be cautious, and know there is power in those words.

 Hello all,  I’m Joey L. Dowdy Los Angeles based Creator, Choreographer, Instructor, Host and CEO of World Dance Groove Fitness Entertainment. I am pleased to share with you my new provocative you tube “world dance groove 1” double feature video presentation entitled, “Contemporary Dance Domestic Violence -No Tolerance” Part 1 & 2. This first video entitled, “Movement is Medicine That Heals” conveys an array of movement.  It’s more like a dramatic potpourri, a mixture of contemporary dance combined with elements of fierce emotion, break through messages, and textual visualization all wrapped up together.

 It’s my most personal work yet because I too was a victim of domestic violence, I was molested as a child, and I grew up watching my mother struggle with being a battered wife. So putting together these videos have actually been a form of “Movement Therapy”, and a creative expressive outlet for me as well. It has helped me to resurface feelings and emotions that I kept silent for so many years.

“Rage & Rise”, soon to be released, is the second video and it’s solely dedicated to my mother’s domestic abuse conquering struggle for survival.

 You see, these videos are important because they’re dance/movement based adaptations of situations that dig deep inside to reveal the physical and emotional (the good, bad & ugly) side that words sometime can’t express. I feel so blessed that I am able to dedicate this work, and use my life experiences and choreographic skills, in helping to “Break The Silence” by speaking out which is what makes the difference.

 Come on, Give It Up! I get a feeling there are many reading this blog right now who either know some one ,or you are personally facing the same challenge. You may even feel that you don’t know what to do, like most, and or afraid to say something. 

Well, Check This Out!

 Statistics say,

“Every Nine Seconds a Woman is Beaten.

 Silence is Agreement and Participation.

 You Are Equally as Responsible If You Know Someone Who’s Being Abuse and You Don’t Fess Up.

 Nothing A Person Does or Says Justifies Them Being Abused.”

                       You Can Stop It!
