Sit Less, Dance More! A simple _yet powerful_ message to bring to your organization

When I began the Freebox Everyday Dance Project, the only thing I knew for sure was that I wanted a vehicle that would make me commit to dancing everyday because I know that dancing is physically, mentally and spiritually beneficial to me.  I discovered over the course of that year that _in fact_ there are many other people who feel the same. I adopted the motto, "Sit Less, Dance More" and made it my mission to share this simple,yet powerful idea with others. I am very happy that that mission is continuing to blossom!
A couple of weeks ago I got a call from Terrie Van Zandt-Travis, Executive Director at Head Start of Shawnee Mission.  She asked me to come out and energize her staff for the start of their school year on Monday, August 1.  She said she had saved the Kansas City Star newspaper article about The Freebox Everyday Dance Project since June 15, 2010 and was excited to have an opportunity to do a video with me.
My visit was a surprise to the staff, but they all were good sports and played along. We danced to ABC by the Jackson 5.  

 

So what do you think, could your organization use some energizing? How might your staff benefit from being encouraged to let their hair down a bit and get their blood flowing? Do you, like Terrie, have the vision to see that this can nurture happier, more creative employees?  Get in touch with me and let's talk about how I can help energize your organization today!
