Groove On This: Know That Not Everyone Is Looking Out For Your Best Interest.

                Something’s Cooking -n- The Kitchen pt.2

Some people will only show up in your life when they smell something good cooking in the kitchen, and therefore they think the getting is good.  That’s when you’ll see them sneaking and sniffing around you like a rat investigating a piece of cheese. It’s ironic how these people usually don’t seem to have much to offer you, but they’re very interested in what you have to offer. That’s why it’s best to always feed them with a long handle spoon.”>Choreographer Instructor Fitness</a>

What would happen if your health suddenly failed you?

What would happen if you could no longer go to work, or take care of the people you cared about?

What would happen if you were no longer able to participate in the activities you enjoyed?

Would you then be able to see how precious and fragile your life is?

Would you then be able to see the value, and what role u play on this journey called life?

Hmm, I wonder what would happen.

Surround yourself with positive passionate people. You know, the beautiful people, who will be your allies. As they will be the ones who’ll back you regardless of whether they think your ideas and plans are brilliant, or a little nutty.

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?

They Bring Out The Best In You!

Groove Theory (Poem)

Don’t be influenced by run of the mill people who sit around, slack off, and tend to move a bit too slow. Or you won’t rise to the occasion either, and that’s a fact, if I must say so.

What you need to do is surround yourself with a few Passionate People, who’ll inspire you to get up, take action, and make it a daily go.

They’re the ones who’ll teach you how to initiate your passion, get ahead in life, and honey, work your mojo!

So what are you waiting for, move quickly; be among “the passionate people.” Click here:
