Joey L. Dowdy’s “WHERE ARE YOU GOING?”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 22, 2015 by JJgroove01

Up! Down! Around!

People are quit to judge, but they have no idea really where you’ve come from, or where you are going.

Only you know where your life is headed.

But can I ask this? Is it going up, down, or just around? Where are you going?

Joey L. Dowdy’s “BIG IS THE NEW SMALL!”

It takes no more energy, or thought, to think big as it does to think small. So why not have some fun by thinking a little large, or perhaps in quadruple, or even go gigantic?

*Be thankful for each breath you take, it’s the gift of life controlled by a divine order that makes no mistakes.

*Be thankful for living on this grand place called earth that never stops displaying its beauty, knowledge, or worth.

*Be thankful for those who extend their love to you because it shows they care, so kindly return the favor and let them know you’re there.

What Are They Saying?

No She Didn’t?

                         Oh Yes He Did!

I bet you are itching to know what a few readers are saying about my new book series Get Up & Groove “Step Into Greatness! Perform! Where Dancespiration Meets Transformation! True motivational stories of real people who took the step, and made the change, that led them to transform their lives.

Well, wait no longer. Check out these testimonials on Strut! In Six Inch Heels, a new twist on the ugly duckling turn beautiful swan story. And Make It Hot Like A Jalapeno` another true action packed story about Jose, ` a young man in fiery pursuit to find his life’s passion and direction.

Read on!

Alicia (Strut!)

I love the heading “Put Your Best Foot Forward!”

The story is an inspiration for all young talents. It shows that if they have the desire to be great, everything else should not interfere. The story also taught me how nice it is to be able to come out of the hat, and do something different away from the ordinary.


Alexia (Strut!)

I see myself very much in this story. Growing up, since I started dancing later than everyone else, I always felt very inadequate in comparison. I always felt like I needed to prove to everyone that I was able to dance and was not a complete mess with it. The story taught me the importance of not giving up and letting your inner light shine. I really liked when you said how “one size does not fit all. We each have a different uniqueness and certain abilities.” There is such a pressure to be and look a certain way that it is easy to forget that.

Alex (Make It Hot)

My first impression was, “what an emotionally real portrayal of the mindset of some dancers self-esteem (even talented ones as Jose); more importantly how self-worth and self-love is the true optimal form of success.”

What resonated most had to definitely be the way I view myself, in comparison to the way Jose views himself. Self-image is a big thing for me, always has been. Not many people would ever guess that. I mean just like you said….we all have challenges and obstacles to overcome, but it’s what you do NOW that matters.

Emmy Ariel (Strut!)

Joey okay was that my first audition? This is by far a labor of love and the story took me back wayyy back to some of my first coming out during my dancer days. (Hehehe). You’re spot on for a variety of readers with this story. I’m seeing teacher / students / Auditions/ kids who want to be inspired…What I like is this little gem of a story has an urban feel to it from the jump! It describes how a teacher spots a diamond in the rough shy girl with the passion and fire to make it to the top. Oh yes this book is mouthwatering. I’m thirsty for more.


London (Strut!)

I read the story about “Strut.” My first impression was amazement. I couldn’t believe the little girl you were initially talking about became such a great success in the end. What resonated with me about the story was that, no one is born amazing. Sometimes I see amazing dancers and I just think they walked out of the womb fierce, ready to learn a 3 min dance.

Luis (Make It Hot)

I always battle with my own value, from low to highs and back and forth. I remember the time when the role model I looked up to most in life told me I could be a “great designer”; it was the best day of my life. So I can relate to Jose’s story greatly. Since then I realized it was the fact that he said I could be “great” that meant the most to me, regardless of it being design or anything else. His approval itself was something I desperately needed.

Carla (Strut!)

The story is a reminder to never give up on your dreams and don’t let the negative talk of others deter you from your dreams and goals or cause you to doubt yourself. Good stuff!

All the Recap @ Work Groovement Techniques are applicable and good. The first three stood out the most to me. Like:

*Never cover up your natural raw God-given talents or abilities. Let them shine. Use them as they speak volumes, and will showcase the real you.

*Keep it simple and be yourself. There’s no need for unnecessary gymnastics or gimmicks if you don’t need to use them. Be You & Do You!

*Remember talk is cheap, so Let Your Actions Be Your Star Attraction.

Okay, now, what do you have to say?

Diet Pills,

               Liquids Fasts,

                                   Weird Food Combinations,

 Do Any of These Things Really Work?


A Sneak Peek Excerpt From Get Up & Groove! Step Into Greatness! Perform!


The Carla Flagg Story (in her own words)

I knew Deep down inside I really wanted to be healthy and thinner, but for many years I didn’t have a clear vision or a plan on how to achieve it. So I tried dieting, and for me it was just about every diet in the book, along with diet pills, liquids fasts, weird food combinations; anything I thought would get the weight off quickly. But guess what? None of it worked. I realize now they were only temporary quick fixes that usually ended with me doing the same old song and dance: gaining all the weight back, plus some which would leave me to feel angry and depressed. Sound familiar, anyone? I as well began to focus all my attention on my body image and what number I was on the scale. Now I know these things were totally the wrong approach.

What’s the right approach? Read On:

A Sneak Peek Excerpt From Get Up & Groove! Step Into Greatness! Perform!

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:
