My Wife and I Make Our First Viral Video – Let it Snow

Let it Snow

Showing the world that it's only snow!

Posted by Mr. Jonathan on Tuesday, March 14, 2017

I ‘m at work Tuesday morning (March 14th) when I get the call that we are closing the cigar shop at 1 PM because the snow was slowing foot traffic to a standstill. After a two-hour drive home in white-out conditions,  my wife, Debby, greets me with a proposition… lets make some people smile today and Let It Snow was born!

There is no question that social media has become the ruination of most people who use it daily. Negativity is rewarded with more interaction than positivity as a rule and Debby was tired of reading how much people hate the snow.

In most people, misery is an infectious poison and man does it love company. It spreads like wild fire from person to person. Debby doesn’t allow people’s misery to bring her down, as you will see in our video that has really caught on, she shares her joy with the world and makes herself the antidote.

You won’t be able to help but smile while you watch this video of us teaching together!

To Move Someone Else, You must First Move Yourself

Donnie Burns To move others you must first move yourself

I was watching a very long dance lecture that featured Donnie Burns as the speaker. He said something that was so great that I have to share it with you! “You must move yourself, before you can move others.” This statement is really a double entendre.

In a lead and follow situation the leader should be focused on moving his own body from his center and connecting to his follower’s center so she knows to move herself, following his center’s movement. Blah blah blah…I know you have heard this statement formed in an infinite number of ways to explain what we all know to do (even if we never do it correctly).

Looking at Donnie’s statement from an artistic stand point. How can we expect to move/impress/inspire anyone with our dancing if we ourselves are not moved/impressed/inspired by our own dancing? Dance for your self, practice for yourself, move yourself every single day and you will foster that little rockstar that is in you. Once you do it for you, you can feel confident in showing it off to “them.”

He and his former partner Gaynor Fairweather were 14-time World Professional Latin champions: this is by some way the record for this title.[1] They were also eleven times International Latin American Dance Champions, and this is also a record.[2] On their competitive retirement both were honoured by appointment as MBE. Donnie was undefeated in any competitive dance contest for nearly 20 years of continuous competition, a record in any major category of ballroom dance; this is now in the Guinness Book of Records. During this period he won major titles in countries throughout the world.

He is now[when?] President[3] of the World Dance Council.[4] He is a winner of the Carl Alan Award for outstanding services to dance and is widely considered the “Michael Jordan” of ballroom dancing.[citation needed] In 2008, Burns married swing dance and International Latin dancer Heidi Groskreutz.

Burns was the hero of the character Mr. Aoki in the 1996 Japanese film Shall We Dance?.

Burns also appeared during week 7 of the 12th season of Dancing with the Stars.
