OMG this is life changing…well not really

20 Mar

Hey lovely people.

Got some good news for ya and I got some not so good news..like life changing news…wellllll it’s really not that bad.

Good News

I’ve set up shop somewhere else in cyber space, and it’s around the corner..no need to travel far, just a CLICK AWAY.

My current blog is called Dance Live Inspire but my domain is kayannward.wordpress.com, so I decided to start a new blog..it’s still called Dance Live Inspire. except, the domain is DanceLiveInspire.Wordpress.com. Also this blog is dedicated to dance, everything dance and only dance. It’s not the conventional blog..

Dance Live Inspire

A blog that connects, educates, develops and highlights the creative freedom of dancers and dance lovers in the commercial & entertainment industry.

It’s not censored, it’s truthful and there are lots more to come from this.

So what’s the not so good news you may ask

Well, I will be changing my current blog..I will have everything from my website at kayannward.com and I will have a personal blog dedicated to helping ladies look and feel good from the inside out..and may I add this comes with all the randomness, craziness and misbehaving antics that I’m known for. I figured the best way to help others, which I really truly love to do, is to be myself 100% of the time.

So you see the bad news is not so terrible and life threatening after all.

I will continue to post some great stuff on this blog, but it won’t be for long. And I promise you when I move my personal blog, you will be notified.

So here is what I need you to do..if you love dance, then go over to Dance Live Inspire and check it out. CLICK HERE

And thank you in advance..:)

Talk to you lovelies later.

What happens when we tell young people “Dare 2 Dance”?

11 Nov

What happens when we tell young people “Dare 2 Dance”?

Well absolute magic happens, inspiration, empowerment and a platform to allow young people to create takes flight.

I’m so honored to be one of the mentors for the Toronto District School Board “Dare 2 Dance” Program.

I got the chance to work with versatile up and coming dance groups from a variety of high schools.

These schools will compete to win the Dare 2 Dance competition.

I went to the semi finals yesterday, and it was amazing.

I was so inspired by the creativity, thought and dedication that all the students put into their performances.

When I was in high school this program wasn’t around, very unfortunate, however I’m thrilled that this program is here to allow students to be part of a bigger picture. Which is giving them the platform they need to express themselves through movement.

The final competition is December 8th, 2011..if you love dance and support young people expressing themselves in a positive and creative way, then definitely come and support them.

Show your Student ID card or attend with a friend to SAVE on dance classes

6 Nov

Saving money is a good habit to develop, so here are two ways dance lovers could SAVE on great dance classes.

I always have students telling me they want to attend Dancehall Reggae classes, workshops and the Sweat B4 U Sweat “Caribbean Dance Workout” classes, but their financial situation is always holding them back.

So here is something just for the hard-working students.

Student Discount: Because being a student is hard work, and sometimes stressful, it’s always good to get a good deal for just being a student.

Show your student ID card when you attend class and pay only $12 for each drop in class.

Also look out for future workshops and sessions that allow you to get a discount just because you’re a student.

*****IMPORTANT*****
You must be a student 18+ in any post secondary institution (High School, College, University etc)

Friend Discount

When you plan on attending class with a friend, your more likely to show up and have a good time, your more likely to push yourself, and your more likely to relax because you have your friend with you.

So to honor friendship and companion ship, here is a discount just for you.

Attend class with your favorite pal, or encourage a friend to take class with you, because you will both save. Pay $10 each when you attend with your friend.

Registration is always simple

I’m teaching one last workshop for 2011 and I need to know what type of dance workshop you want me to teach.

Yes this is in your hands, so let me know.

Here is what you need to know.

Send me an email to info@kayannward.com

Or write on my facebook wall under the status “What should the last dance workshop for 2011 be?”

You can choose Hip-Hop, Old School dance, sexy dance, soca, dancehall reggae, performance dance,  it’s all up to you. (But you have to choose a dance style that I teach, don’t ask me to teach a ballet workshop, it’s just not going to happen lol)
