Unleash your inner Super Star with song and dance classes
2010-03-09 · By Editor
So you think you can dance? Sing? Overcome your stage-fright and give into your life-long dream of performing? Well, Long Beach resident Faith Rivera thinks you can.
Easy for her to say, Rivera is an Emmy-winning singer/songwriter and enjoys a career touring the globe as a positive music artist from the Hollywood Bowl to the Honolulu Symphony, conscious conferences to spiritual centers.
Most folks don’t know, though, that fear accompanied her much of the time on stage from her beginnings in Hawaii to Cal State Long Beach (where she received a degree in Music) to auditions and national tours earlier in her career. So much fear and anxiety, that she even tried to quit a few times.
With the popularity of American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, Highschool Musical, Glee and more, Faith believes there is a renaissance going on and it’s time for the rise of the Everyday Super Star —”normal” folks who follow their heart to sing, dance, perform, inspire and be inspired through the power of music.
Rivera is working to “unleash everyday superstars” with ongoing classes in a fun, nurturing environment where participants learn positive, upbeat songs and dances. The weekly dance classes are “an opportunity to let loose and creatively express the singer/dancer in you,” says Rivera.
Participants will also have the chance to perform live with Faith at local performances—at least 3 rehearsals required. She has seen moms and daughters, closet-performers, singers that had given up to newbie dancers in their golden years use these live performances as a “musical firewalk” – to break-through, break-out, face their fears, and step into their dreams! Not only is it a life-changing event for the performers, the inspiration it brings to others to step into their brilliance is powerful to say the least!
Step through the fear and into the fun of being an Everyday SuperStar.
SingDanceShine classes take place on Mondays from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Tuesdays from 10:30 a.m. to noon at Shear Rhythm 4126 Viking Way #220 Long Beach, 90808. A $10 donation is requested to participate; love offering—no one turned away.
