Get Those Moves like Jagger: New E-Book Delivers Dance Floor ‘Basics’ for Men

image001

 

The dance floor can be intimidating, even for the most confident people. But for men who can’t dance, it’s absolutely daunting and quite embarrassing!  Whether it be at a wedding or at a Saturday night party, it’s important for men to hop off the wall and ‘mingle with moves’ without the embarrassment.

 

After experiencing the awkward stares and a few comments from women about his dancing, Nick Taylor, a young and single socialite, partnered with a New York-based choreographer, Ben Watson, to come up with a solution to end dance floor embarrassment for men of all ages – Dance Floor Arsenal.

 

An e-book created for men by men, Dance Floor Arsenal is a complete education system designed to teach men dance floor basics in two weeks or less.  The tutorial package comes with a full-length guidebook and over 20 video lessons led by professional men’s dance instructor, Ben Watson, all for the price of one professional dance lesson ($29.99).

I received a free code to check out this program and  I did find it a fun an easy way to learn to dance. I think that most would find it quite easy to follow.

The holidays are approaching! First we have the Fall holidays and then Christmas will be here before we know it! We are starting to have some Fall weather and cooler nights. One of my favorite things to do during the Fall and Winter is drink Chai Teas. Good Earth really is one of my favorites so I was quite excited to receive the following Chai Tea samples: Starry Chai, Sweet Chai of mine and Wild Chaild. It was difficult to try to figure out which one was my favorite but I was ale to decide! Starry Chai is a delicious blend with a hint of cherry and Sweet Chai of mine has a hint of maple. So good! But, I have to say my favorite is Wild Chaild! This one has the delicious chai spices and a yummy smooth caramel flavor! It really is my new favorite tea for the holidays!
