VLAP (After School)


Motivational Tuesdays (XI)

Greetings Readers! Welcome back to Motivational Tuesdays, hopefully you are settled with tea at home or at your office. Now let’s get right to the topic of discussion.

With times being how they are now, it is often so difficult to bypass things in life, in order to do what we need to do. Instant vs. Delayed Gratification. Today, we will talk about sacrifices for the greater good. For those of you that have cringed or even have chills sent down your spine from just reading the word, “sacrifice” this article definitely applies to you.

We must give up childish things in order to mature, learn and grow. However, it is the process and the journey of delaying instant gratification, where we will begin to see intangible and tangible results.

Now this process, does it just happen over night? No, anything worth having is worth waiting for. Anything, that new promotion, that new spot on the dance team you just auditioned for, that new shiny car you really want and even friendships & relationships. Everything takes time and consistency, in order to come to its’ true fruition.

Just a few words of encouragement this week! Remember stay blessed and keep your head up and goals high!!!



Motivational Tuesdays (VIII)

Our newest addition to Conversation and The Arts, is the new edition of Motivational Tuesdays! Visual Arts encompasses so much more than just dance, music and artistry of painting.

Today, we will look at how The Arts contributes to the development and growth of children that seem to be in dire situations. This all about motivating and uplifting the community through the expression of The Arts.

Motivational Tuesdays (VI)

Today marks the 6th Edition to our very own Motivational Tuesdays series!

We feel for the end of January there should be a special tribute to those that overcome odds to do what they love! Often times we take for granted what we can so easily do without second thought, what about those that must overcome not only the negativity of the world saying what they cannot do, but also they can bec their own worse enemies.

I hope that those that have read the motivational series, have found a sense of realization that truly anything is possible as long as you put your heart into it.

Do not be scared to let your heart lead you, you will be amazed at the heights you can reach with consistency and determination. Never give up your hopes and dreams. Speak positively into everything you do, you will see it flourish!


In the video shown, this man may be blind, but he lets his heart direct his footsteps. In turn, he doesn’t stumble and he doesn’t fall. He even manages to lead on his own! One can only be astonished and amazed at the type of movement this man is able to do. You would never know of his disability, which in turn became an opening and a capability he used to turn into an uncontrived masterpiece.

We love you, keep doing what you’re doing! You bring inspiration across the dance community and the world. Much love!

Motivational Tuesdays (V)

This week’s message is OVERCOMING.

Often times, when we think of dance, we think “limber and athletic.” However, anyone can fit the title of “Dancer,” as long as you’re driven and you consistently push towards that goal.

With the video shown below, we see just that, a man that beats all stereotypes of the “typical dancer.”

There is a lesson to be learned from the effort displayed by this trooper. Even though, in the physical sense, he may be confined to just his wheelchair, his mental has surpassed the ability of his physical.

He has reached a new height of his ability, all because he believed!

ASL 5-Year Anniversary

Motivational Tuesdays (III)

Hello All,

A new week means new motivation! This week our theme is taking it to the Islands! Feel and Enjoy the drums, bass and vocals on this top hit! The dancers hit every beat and feel every emotion and it shows within their movements. These dancers take moves from the both the Islands and Africa to incorporate soul into their practice.

Everyone is in tune with one another; this is what happens when everyone moves in Harmony and Unison.

Dancing with your feet is one thing, but dancing with heart is another.
