It's May - Spring is in the air and for those of you that have been following my blog, you may have noticed that I have taken a necessary break from it over the last few months. Call it a time to reflect, call it the winter blues, call it a snail start to 2013 ... whatever it is, I've been slowly trekking and repeating to myself, "Tomorrow I'll write my next blog ... Tomorrow I'll get started on that project ... Tomorrow I'll make that phone call." And that cycle continued.
A conversation with an old friend put the world back into perspective and made me realize just how important today really is. She challenged me to think about what gets me out of bed every morning and what I live for. In doing so, she hit a major chord. What would be your answer?
Whatever it is, it's time to start that today. Remember, it's never too late to start living your dream.
Feels good to be back!! Spring is looking mighty good;)
Here is the final Dance Breakdown Tutorial of the year!
I apologize for the delay but the last few months have been incredibly busy with performances and teaching. Enjoy learning Chris Brown's "Turn Up the Music" which earned choreographed Flii Stylz an MTV Video Music Awards this year for Best Choreography. I've worked with Flii in the past and he is an incredibly talented, and humble person who has so much to offer the entertainment world. He's behind many of the moves for Chris Brown, Usher, and JLO.

A few weeks back, I had the opportunity to choreograph a flash mob for the Canadian Olympic Committee. The event was to thank all of the sponsors that have helped support the Athletes throughout the year. It was an honor to choreograph and have many great dancers perform for this event.
Thank you to my right-hand partner Natasha, the amazing dancers, and the Canadian Olympic Committee team for having us! Thanks to Ryan for the filming and editing of the video. It was a hard one to shoot because of the space but as usual, he made it happen!
With the Olympians including Canadian Sprinter Justyn Warner
Last night while watching the American Music Awards, the artists all brought their show-stopping performances to the stage but there was one, in my opinion, that completely stole the show. And it was because she chose to take the path less travelled and in doing so, WOWED everyone. You can tell from the audience applause that it was a clear winner.
Pink is an incredible artist that is always pushing the boundaries and in this performance, she sets a whole new standard in live music and what is possible. I vote for her to have her own Cirque Du Soleil Show and just name it "Pink". She never settles for anything short of extraordinary and that is what clearly separates her from the pack. This bold, vivacious artist knows her strengths, takes full advantage of them, and consistently makes a powerful statement whenever she appears.
This week, think like Pink. Don' just be great, be EXTRAORDINARY. Don't wait for others to set the standard. Set the bar high yourself and let your performance speak in massive volumes.
