“To Be the Best, Wear the Best: Dressing for Success!”

“To Be the Best, Wear the Best:  Dressing for Success!”

Wearing the right outfit when dancing or doing any other workout is very important…if your clothes and shoes fit right and make you feel comfortable, you’re more apt to focus on the workout, not on “how do I look to others in class?”  I’ve always felt that to do my best I should look my best and now, thanks to Reebok, I’ve got many different types of workout apparel and looks to choose from.  

My relationship with Reebok started about 18 months ago. Four girls from the USA and three from the rest of the world were brought together to form the Reebok Dance Team.  We were told that Reebok would be launching their very own dance line within a year.  We were selected to help Reebok fine-tune the line.  Giving them credit, they really went directly to the source: What do dancers want to wear?  What will both look good and be comfortable? What kinds of workout gear, from top to bottom, will not only be in demand “today” but also “tomorrow” were only some of the questions they asked us.

We all want to look our best and feel good, whether at work, partying or while working out. It’s important to wear clothes that make you feel more confident about yourself and your body.  It works for me, and my experience with my students is that it will actually make you work harder during each class.  It is fabulous seeing the “HOT Valley and Westside Moms” sporting cargo pants for Dancinerate.  I love it and I know it helps them feel funkier!

Since Reebok’s dance line launched back in January, I am in more love with the shoes and clothes then I was when I first saw sketches last year.  The clothing is colorful and stylish: the minute I put them on, I am dressing for success.  The dance sneakers are extremely light weight and flexible for our dancer feet.  They are colorful,  come in many styles and have a pivot point on the sole that is great for turning.

It’s Broadway dance time on the Hallmark Channel!

Last Wednesday, November 7, 2012, I had the opportunity to dance into the Home and Family household wearing my Reebok apparel and sneakers.  The TV show airs weekdays at 9AM on the Hallmark Channel.   It was a day full of excitement and a lot of laughs.

Weeks prior to the show, I was working closely with my friends from Reebok and the Producers of Home and Family to create my segment.  Reebok’s mission of being “Fit for Life” keeps people motivated and excited to experience fitness each day.  My students and I together embrace that everyday dancing many different styles as well as supporting one another throughout the entire experience.  I knew that I wanted to share that with Mark Steines and Paige Davis during our time together on the show.  We chose Broadway dance as it is an incredible workout, a great way to express yourself, and very entertaining.  I decided to share some of the most popular Broadway dance moves like the “sugar step”, “Fosse hips”, and so on with the Hallmark viewers and Mark and Paige.  They went perfectly to my favorite tunes from YES! Fitness Music.  The entire experience was incredible!

Thank you to my ROCK STAR students, Sheri Levy and Danielle Jolie Thouin who danced their hearts out with me on the show.  It is all about losing yourself in the movement and enjoying every second of it.  That is exactly what we did with Mark and Paige.  It was a hit!  If you missed the episode, have no fear…just click below and enjoy!  Please share with all of your friends and comment below to let me know what you think.  Thanks everyone!

Tune in to see ILYSE on TV

Don’t forget to watch me tomorrow, Thursday, November 8, 2012 on The Hallmark’s All New Series, “Home and Family” with Paige Davis and Mark Steines.  I had a blast teaching them Broadway dance moves that make you feel like a Professional Dancer and also keep you fit.  We all sported our amazing Reebok apparel and shoes.  You do not want to miss this episode.  Actor John O’Hurley was there as well and I got to play Home and Family Fued with him.  :)

After you watch the show, please comment below and let me know what you think.  Tell everyone to watch it.  Let’s continue to spread the love of dance and fitness!
