Sears Glam Gala

15 Nov

The Ladies brought out the funk, flavor and all that sass at the sears promotional Glam Gala event. The theme for this event was disco which featured 70’s inspired clothing for the holiday season.

And there to entertain on lookers, shoppers and the sears staff were the lovely ladies of Lady Bold. With guest dancers La Toya Robinson and Lauryn Lyn.

It was a great event.

Thanks Ladies and special thanks to Derek Boyne and the Sears team for an amazing event.

Check out the pictures.


One Love

6 Nov

Bob Marley “One Love” came on the television today, and I felt my energy and spirit rise up. When a song is timeless, and touches generation after generation, that’s when you know the quality and message of the song is great.

I caught the video when it was almost finished , that half of minute that I caught made me smile for the rest of the night. It was a little yet big reminder of what love and togetherness could do for an entire nation.

So much love for my students and participants

6 Nov

I talk about the students and participants that attend my classes all the time, and I do this because I think they are all amazing and so inspiring.

They inspire me and make me laugh. Every time I teach I feel like I’ve experienced something new with them.

From the young dancers that attend class, to the adults that attend, they are all truly amazing.

Last week I taught the 1st Lady Bold Dance workshop, I was amazed at the turn out. I had young women and older women on the floor ready to groove. The youngest being in her early twenties, and the oldest being over 60, if that’s not amazing, then I don’t know what it is.

All these ladies got down, it was great to see a 60-year-old dance to Ushers “OMG”..and the best part was she knew the words to the song..Damn thats amazing I love it..

Today I taught a beginner/fundamental Dancehall Reggae class, I had a new participant come out to dance, and her passion and drive was amazing. She was focused and so dedicated to learning the dance routine. Another amazing experience.

I have so much love and respect for my students and participants. I thank them all, because they are great, they prove to the world that dance is for everyone, there is no age limit, because these ladies from 16 to 60+ rock the dance floor.

You could be a professional dancer improving your skills, a beginner wanting to get better or an adult looking to groove and enjoy dance for what it is…Whatever your reason keep dancing, I’m glad I get to share the experience of movement with you all.

Time to re-charge

3 Nov

If you leave the light on and never turn it off, its going to burn out.

So we must turn the light off to conserve energy, and also to make sure we have light when its dark.

This applies to individuals. We can’t always expect to be the brightest light in the sky, we cannot expect to be on our A-game all the time, we need time to re-charge.

There is off season for professional athletes, this is when they rest up then train to get back to the game.

Dancers

 Take the time to re-charge your mind body and soul.Take the time to be away from it all and come back ready to ignite.Trust that your talent is timeless.

You don’t have to be a dancer to do this

Burn out is not fun, I for one know this. I’ve been through what it feels like to be burned out, to the point that I had to step away. And it was the best choice ever, and a great learning experience, one that will guide all my future decisions.

The feeling of coming back to do what you love, with a clear mind and relaxed body is great.

Be well.
