FAMED CHOREOGRAPHER JOEY L. DOWDY SAYS, “NO DRUGS”, I HAVE A BETTER SOLUTION FOR STRESS AND BOREDOM!

June 28, 2014,  Los Angeles California

Joey L. Dowdy aka “Dr. Dancer” fitness motivator for ABC, KTLA, Telemundo/NBC, and the original choreographer for boy bands like Backstreet Boys, Take-Five & No Mercy says, "The best way to alleviate stress and boredom is to “Put Your Groove Into Action."

Which is actually what his new book series entitled, “Get Up & Groove! Motivational Movement Techniques is all about.” 

Joey’s series was inspired by a Discovery.com study stating that in 2010 scientists uncovered a staggering link between boredom and heart disease. During the 1980s researchers questioned more than 7,500 workers in London about boredom on the job. When they tracked these workers down twenty years later, they discovered that those who had reported being bored at work were 2.5 times more likely to have died of heart disease. 

Joey finds this statistic to be shocking, but ever so real and says, “Far too often I witness people who are bound by limits and are living way below their performance capabilities. Yet what astounds me is they don’t realize it’s leading them down the road to boredom, depression, and poor health.” 

That is why his first book of the series, entitled, “Step Into Greatness! Perform! Where Dancespiration Meets Transformation,” is so relevant. It presents true stories of real people who took the steps to face their doubts, fears, and obstacles. Their decisions led to challenges, but the challenges led to real change, and that change led them to transform their lives! 

So, if you’re looking for a “groove to Improve your life,” this book leads the way with infectious inspiration that will make you, Get Up Out of Your Seat and Start Grooving On Your Feet!

Former publisher OF DANCER MAGAZINE, Owen Goldman says, “Joey L. Dowdy is one of the most creative and original choreographers and dance teachers I’ve ever seen. His work is riveting.” 

Joey’s book is distributed through Xlibris publishing and can be purchased in all forms, including e-book, paperback, and hardcover.

Here's is where it can be found.

*****A BLAST FOR THE PAST                                  

COACH TO THE STARS JOEY L. DOWDY CONFIRMS WILLIAM HUNG CAN SHAKE HIS BUN BUN

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday, January 19, 2006, Contact: Call 626 634 2246

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A Los Angeles-based dance instructor says if American Idol reject William Hung can master his moves, anyone can. Famed Dancer & Choreographer Joey L. Dowdy teaches Afro-Latino dance in Los Angeles and says anyone who’s afraid of trying this style of dance can look to William Hung for inspiration. Dowdy says after the Idol debacle, Hung showed up at his Afro-Latino class  in Pasadena to improve his Ricky Martin-esque moves, and surprisingly, “He did a pretty decent job.”
The dance instructor says the only setback was Hung’s mother, who “put more pressure on him than he needed” by stepping out onto the dance floor to correct him. Dowdy says he told her, “Mommy, we love you but you have to sit down!” From then on, Hung shook his “bonbon” with ease.

For shy wallflowers, Dowdy suggests using an instructional DVD like his own – Joey’s World Dance Groove Fitness – to practice seductive steps at home or at the office with the door shut. Afterwards, he says, “You can take it to the clubs and bust it out.”

Famed Joey L. Dowdy Choreographer/Instructor’s Disco Dance Fitness will have you singing, “I, I, I, Am Stayin Alive!” Hundreds of cooks and food service workers of every Age, Color, Shape, and Size jammed packed the ballroom at the California Schools Nutrition Association (CSNA) 58TH Annual convention held at the Pasadena Convention Center Jan 15-17 2011.

The stellar three-day festival featured a line up of new healthy snacks designed for school’s cafeterias by way of different display booths, taste tests, and free products giveaways.

However, another major highlight and main attraction took place just one building away as eager participants stood on the ballroom floor "Ready For Some Action." This lively crew waited for instructions that were so brilliantly executed by AKA Dr. Dancer & Master Teacher Joey L. Dowdy, who geared them up for their exciting day ahead.

 Joey is the original Choreographer for Pop sensations like Backstreet Boys, Take-5, No Mercy and a Los Angeles ABC television Fitness motivator. And he didn’t fail to please this very enthusiastic group by serving up a delicious Disco Dance Fitness workout that delighted workers from all over the California area.

Dancing Dowdy showed them how to strut their “Hot Stuff”. He started the class with a warm-up followed by a series of Sizzling routines that took them down good ole` memory lane with such funky grooves like, Donna Summer’s “Hot Stuff”, Saturday Night Fever’s Bee Gee’s “Stayin Alive”, Curtis Mayfield “Movin On Up! And the always electric crowd-pleaser “YMCA”.

Joey ‘s slick moves and magnetic personality was a sure-fire winner. The whole set up was in connection with this years 70’s theme and their Saturday night awards gala & Disco Dance party. His class was the prequel for what would occur later that evening; where these boogie on down participants would have an opportunity to bust a move on the dance floor and woo the crowd with some of the steps they learned earlier with Dr. Dancer Joey L Dowdy.

And like the 70’s, let’s just say, “ They were all Super Fly”. Robert Garrett famed Movie music scoring producer handled video and still picture shoots.

Breaking Barriers & His Shackles Joey L. Dowdy famed Choreographer/Instructor speaks out about the Hush, Hush, Silence of Domestic Abuse. Joey says, “This couldn’t be a more talked about and controversial subject right now.”

Breaking Barriers & His Shackles Joey L. Dowdy famed Choreographer/Instructor speaks out about the Hush, Hush, Silence of Domestic Abuse.

 Joey says, “This couldn’t be a more talked about and controversial subject right now.” 

You know this is BIG, BIG news when celeb’s like Rihanna, Oprah, Tyler Perry, Monique and “So You Think You Can Dance” judge Mary Murphy are all talking about domestic violence and their abusive past.

“Precious” the new Oscar-worthy movie directed by Lee Daniels depicts the trials and tribulation of an obese young teenage African American female Gabourey Sidibe, who has dreams of becoming a leading girl in music videos. However, her dreams are quickly shattered by her mentally, physically and abusive mother, and sexually abusive father.”

 Joey L.  Dowdy World Dance Groove’s Artistic Director and famed original choreographer for boy bands like Backstreet Boys & Take-Five know a step or two about the twists, and turns, of domestic violence gripping hold from his own experiences. Joey states, “I remember as a child being repeatedly molested by an older person who forced me to do things that violated my innocence. I too like so many others were afraid to speak out for fear of what others would think about me; I was afraid they wouldn’t believe me.” “Actually, I was so confused and I thought maybe I caused it; I even wondered if there was something wrong with me. I didn’t know who to turn to, or where to go, so sadly, I just buried my feelings. I never talked about it; I just wore the pain.

I can totally identify with “Gabby” the teenage girl in “Precious” because I was an overweight teen who was constantly being picked on and called names by my classmates. I soon after developed low self- esteem, and a hatred for the way I looked. I now realize it was partly because of not discussing and/or getting help for my molestation issue.” But this is what I know now. “You Can Turn Your Pain into Power” if you act upon just three things.

1. Know that the battered are often too embarrassed or ashamed to ask for help.    

2. Don’t worry what others may think about you; move ahead anyway.

3. Seek help and support; speak out to a loved one or a close friend. As soon as you start to help yourself, others will help you.

 Joey gives thanks to God for his amazing grace during his most vulnerable times. He says, “I was just a kid who could have easily resorted to drugs, crime, or suicide, for comfort and emotion release, but I didn’t my faith kept me. As well as this was all happening while growing up in an abusive household where my father abused my mother; it was such an uncomfortable feeling witnessing the mental and physical torment of domestic abuse. But I’m thankful I found hope.”

 Joey’s, youtube channel worlddancegroove1 has two highly talked about videos, “Movement is Medicine, & Rage & Rise”, which features powerful contemporary creative dance & textual visualization montages that depict the subject matter. Several viewers have commented and stated they love Joey’s videos because they focus not just on the problem, but they as well give them hopeful and helpful empowering solutions.

PRLog -- “Is Sexy Back? Could "JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE SEXY BACK" hit dance track be correct? Did he truly bring Sexy back?    

 Joey  L. Dowdy says, " It never left, okay don’t get me wrong, I love that song I think it’s a classic. Justin took a bold step and different direction with his music; the song “Sexy back” brought a fresh new much-needed sound. It has a brassy hard edge attitude vibe, it makes you stand attention. It's provocative as well as it awakened your senses. I think it's clever and effective.

However, when it comes to dance and movement, music with an attitude has been ablaze for decades.”

 Joey 's proves that point with his new Hot & Spicy World Dance "Sexy Groove-Hot Moves” video Lessons 101 in which delivers a range of dance styles with an international flair. It also includes some of his fiery easy to follow (well, maybe with a little practice :) signature moves packaged together especially for you. The holidays are here and filled with good cheer, so this couldn’t be a better gift. It will surely “Put Some Pep in Your Step” and get you in a festive celebration mood.

 Joey says, “My Sexy Groove video is designed to help you unleash your inner kitty cat, or that outer furious tiger, whichever you may need. I believe there’s a sexy side to everyone yet you may have to dig a little to find it, but that okay, it’ll be a fun discovery. Trust me, just play this video whenever you’re having a difficult or boring day at work, or a lonesome cold winter’s night and it’ll surely Spice Things Up. I’ll have you in a good mood and ready to Get Up & Groove.”
Sounds good
