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.

Sweat B4 U Sweat Caribbean Dance Workout starts this Wednesday

6 Nov

Sometimes the boring treadmill, and jogging is just not good enough for a cardio workout and sometimes going through the same repititions at the gym is just not appealing for us to go back.

Lets admit that working out is extremely important, and lets admit that our workout has to be engaging to keep us coming back.

That is why I want you to try this amazing Caribbean dance workout.

Sweat B4 U Sweat “Caribbean Dance Workout” is designed to make you sweat, make you dance, make you feel good, and give you a full body workout.

2) We move into the cardio section, done to high energy Soca, Dancehall, and Urban music

3) We move into body toning exercises that allows you to focus on each muscle while you dance, sweat, and tone

4) We slow things done by grooving to soca, urban and dancehall music that relaxes you

Make sure you Sign Up B4 U Show Up

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.

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
