I Know It Sounds Crazy, But…Help Me Choreograph The Bachelor’s Wedding Dance!

I Know It Sounds Crazy, But…Help Me Choreograph The Bachelor’s Wedding Dance!

Hello to all you hopeless romantics out there (and yes, that includes Ilyse Baker)!

Monday night about 10 million viewers watched The Bachelor Season 17 finale to see if Sean Lowe was going to get down on one knee to propose to either Catherine Guidici or Lindsay Yenter.  I mean, what woman wouldn’t want to watch one sexy single guy (Hey Hilton, you’re still the sexiest guy I know!) seeking his future wife where the road to true love can be very surprising and even quite steamy?!  Come on…you know we American women buy into Reality TV all the time (how many guys out there are willing to admit they watch the show?  Hands up!)!

Hopeless Romantic

I didn’t get to watch this season from the beginning as I rarely have time for TV.  However, about 3 weeks ago I bonded with my sister Dayna over the show and got hooked.  So, along with ten million others, I invested 3 hours Monday night to find out what Sean would do, and admit shedding tears throughout the show.

Oy, I am such a hopeless romantic!  :)

I loved that Catherine gave Sean little notes here and there telling him what was on her mind.  Not like I’d do anything like that; right Hilton!?!  :)

My Fantasy

I’m so enamored with this couple that I fantasized “what can I do to help them?” and decided I wanted to choreograph their wedding dance.  Simple idea, huh? I’m the right person for it, huh?

So, after watching After the Final Rose, where Sean said they were planning a quick wedding, I got right on Twitter to tweet away to Sean and Catherine, congratulating them and also letting them know that I would be happy to choreograph their wedding dance.  Good start…huh?!

Then Tuesday I wake up and see that it was announced on Good Morning America that Sean will be joining the cast of Dancing With The Stars this season with dance partner, Peta Murgatroyd.  Sooo…now what, as I am sure he can get any of the Pros to choreograph for him?  Nooooo nooooo I LOVE my idea and am sticking to it.  Sean will be busy getting incredible training from Peta so who will Catherine have to train her for their big day?  What about her???????  Who will work with her???????

Help Me Help Catherine (and Sean)!

Here’s where you can help! If you agree that Catherine should take dance classes and training from me, it’s just a matter of how I get to Sean and Catherine.  Ok…I am still thinking out of the box about it and trying to work my magic.  In the meantime, all of YOU can help me with this new venture that I am pursuing so here is what I’d like you to do:

1)  Tweet away to: @SeanLowe99 @clmgiudici @chrisbharrison @ABCBachSeanLowe @BachelorABC letting them know that you know someone who would be great as Catherine’s Dance Trainer (yep, me!)

2)  Facebook away:  The Bachelor

3)  Email ABC and all Producers of both The Bachelor and Dancing With The Stars

4)  Comment below on my blog any ideas and feedback

5)  Share and spread the word to all you know

This could be lots of fun for everyone and, if I’m chosen, I’ll share everything I’m allowed with all of my readers so we can all follow this beautiful couple down the aisle and to their wedding day.

Thanks for all your help in helping make Catherine the best wedding dance partner ever!

xoxo,

ILYSE

Behind the Scenes: Dancinerate™ Burn With The Beat DVD Shoot

For many years now, I have said, “I want my own Dance Fitness DVD and I am sure it is so easy to do.”  My attitude was just like Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory when she would say in her whining voice, “I want an Oompa Loompa now!”  Of course, I wasn’t as whiny, however I felt if everyone else was producing DVDs easily and promptly, then how can I not do the same thing?!

Well…I learned very quickly years back that it was not as easy as I thought.  Not only is timing important, my finances had to be in line, my business head had to be turned on hardcore, among many other things.  Boy, did I learn fast and I thank the man upstairs who looks after me daily that I didn’t get myself into anything too fast.  After a lot of research and countless meetings with mentors, I knew that it was best to wait and I would know when it was “my time” to show the World what Ilyse Baker could offer on a home DVD.

The “right” time has finally come for me to share my passion for dance and fitness with the World.  Yes, that is right:  Ilyse Baker’s Dancinerate™ Burn With The Beat DVD is NOW available on my website, Amazon, Collage Exercise Videos, and Total Fitness DVDs.  It has been a week now since I launched and I am beyond blessed with the sales and feedback.  My DVD is doing exactly what I wanted it to do:  Make a difference in peoples’ lives!  The DVD even hit the UK today…2 DVDs are heading to London.  :)  I am on Cloud 9 as my dream is now a reality.

Now, let’s go back to the girl who thought this would be a piece of cake…haha I still laugh at that thought.  Sooo not a peace of cake, however a journey that I loved every minute of even if it left me with a ton of anxiety, stress, insecurities, etc.  You know how our “heads” can talk way too much sometimes.  :)

My shoot date was back on October, 15, 2012.  Months prior to the shoot, I was in major prep mode choreographing, selecting music, a production company, graphic designer, art director, photographer, make up artist, hair artist, wardrobe, backup talent, website shopping cart, and the list goes on.  I could not be happier with everyone that worked on my DVD shoot and assisted me on making my product ROCK.  Here is a shout out to…Stock Yard Films, YES! Fitness Music, Sarah Jefferson Carter, Linda Posivak, David Heisler Photography, Brandon Neff Design, Kimberly Klein, Danielle Jolie Thouin, Ronni Winston, Stacey Vangelisti, Rachel Tonick FitLife Productions, Mitch Perliss Consulting, Web Success Team, AFAA Studios, and Reebok.

Please enjoy viewing my Behind the Scenes footage that my brilliant boyfriend shot for me on set.  I think he has a new venture to pursue.  :)  Please comment below and let me know what you think then PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE share this exciting new journey of mine that you are all a part of with everyone you know.  My DVD helps you reach beyond your comfort zone, have fun, lose yourself in the movement, tighten and tone, build confidence, feel sexier, and reduce stress.  What more could you ask for?!
