Step Small and Dream Big…and Dance!

You have to dream big, and then dream bigger yet again, if you crave that ideal juicy life, bod, job, lover, what-have-you! Yet simultaneously, fight overwhelm with one small step a day. And celebrate those small wins – because they are magnificent!

Here’s a small clip of original choreography, choreographed with the help my dear friend Whitney G-Bowley. Check out the debut, in real time, on Dec 10th at 4:30pm at Pure Yoga on the Upper West Side. It’s FREE!

Enjoy listening to Jean Goldkette & His Orchestra jam out “My Pretty Girl.”

This is my small step to a much larger production I’m dreaming up in full 1920s glamour and fanfare! : )

What’s the baby step you’re taking?? Leave a message below and let me know!

Dance Fearlessly

You can’t step trepidatiously in dance. If you do, that step will be sure to fail you. The only way to be successful in your dance (aka life) is to step confidently and boldly – despite whether you feel dumb. And you can’t wait for someone to tell you exactly how to move. You need to take the initiative yourself, trust your instincts, and know that only you can move the best way for you.

Here’s a easy-to-follow dance-cardio combination to “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke for you to do just that!

I break it down for you first and then I dance it out wholeheartedly. : )

What scares you? What are you on the fence about? Let me know below!

And more importantly let’s kick those fears to the curb and conquer!

 

“Smile” – A Stretch for Your Mind and Muscles

Enjoy this stretch for your muscles, not to mention your mind and and spirit too! Deep breaths with each move slowly rid yourself of tension. Music is by my dear friend Mario Spinetti. And ps – putting a bit of a smile on your face while you do it will make it that much betta! ; )

Enjoy the Process

Take Action. Dance. Do: Let Yourself Go

 

My blog is called Living-Dance, yet my latest posts have been dance-related fitness. Why the heck am I not choreographing and dancing more myself? So what I don’t have a current project at the moment.

No more waiting. No more excuses. Time to take action. Choreograph without judgement. Dance. Do.

What are you sick of waiting for and what are you going to do?

Standing Abs: to tone your tummy!

There are definitely mornings when my back is particularly tight and crunches feel a bit aggressive.  Standing abs are the solution! Give this series a go to work your core while standing upright.  Halleluiah!
