One of my biggest problems as the weather improves and the summer sets in is that I am extremely hairy. Not that being hairy in its self is a problem.But, one of the results of being hairy is that I sweat a lot during the summer. Finding a good deodorant is very important.
Not just for my own sake but also for others (If you know what I mean).

After testing many different products I have seettled on a deodorant which is 100 % natural, “Svanen- märkt”, and made in Sweden. Its the Rosenserien Deodorant. Theres no Aluminium or alcohol in it.

One other thing that some of my students wonder over is why my dance shoes don’t stink. Well here’s the secret.

I spray them with my Rosenserien deodorant  😉

The Perfect White Shirt!

The problem I always have with white shirts is that I often wear them on stage, which means that my makeup ends up as an awefull stain around the collar. Washing them can be a pain! How to get the stains out without using chemicals?
Well here is the perfect solution:

Mix 1 cup of lemon juice with 1 cup of baking soda when you wash your clothes. BUT you have to dry the clothes outside!

Or for tough stains mix 1 cup of white vinegar with 6 cups of water and soak overnight before washing in the lemon and baking soda mix.

If you have any other method please let me know!

They will have to dance their asses off

Tonight is the semi-final of what has to be one of the most exciting seasons of Lets Dance and at the same time the one season we will remember for all its dramatic accidents , illnesses and injuries!

Marko , Oskar and Maria go head to head in this evenings show. Each celebrity dances two dances. The first is their last remaining dance from the Ballroom and Latin American category. The second is the Judges challenge. This is the one dance that we the jury feel they dances so poorly that they get a second chance.

Tonight they will have to dance their asses off if they want to make the final.

May the best dancer win!


Natural cleaning. Again.

Ok! I know some of you think that I’m flipping out with this natural cleaning thing I’m going through, but, it really is an eye opener!

Here are a couple of tips of how to use Olive Oil as a cleaning agent:

1.  To clean metal surface and cooking pots – Make a scouring paste of Olive Oil coarse salt a stiff brush. Then wash it away with warm water.

2. To fix scratches on leather furniture or clothing – Put a little Olive Oil on a cotton cloth and rub in in a curcular motion.

3. To polish stainless steel – To make it sparkle, pour olive oil onto a cloth and polish untill you get the desired affect.

4. To polish wooden floors and furniture – Mix 2 cups olive oil with 1 cup lemon juice . Rub the mixture into the furniture with a soft cloth. Then Polish away

5. To smooth out scratches in light-colored wood, mix equal parts olive and lemon juice. Then Polish to your hearts content.

6. Try spraying  olive oil on squeaky door hinges,

7. Clean your dusty plant leaves by wiping them with Olive oil.

These are just soem of the tips I have been given and tried.

Time to see my family

With the 4 couples left fighting for a place in next weeks semi-final of Lets Dance, the balance of power starts to change. Our job as judges now swtiches to that of guide. What results we give the competitors realisticaly no longer matters.
From tonight the power is in the hands of the viewers and how they vote.

With 4 couples left it is possible that the one that wins with the judges points could still go home if they lose the audience votes.

Now its up to you! So get it right!!!!!

The good, the bad and the ugly

The good, the bad and the ugly.

Take your pick!

You won’t win if your a copy!

Postad: 6 maj, 2013 Av: Tony Irving & Alexander Kategori: Allmänt, Dans, Livet | Etiketter: , , | En kommentar

Recently I was asked what makes a winner? Not just as a dancer but also in life. My answer is quite simple. Be different, Be Yourself. Develope yourself ! And  don’t compare yourself to other people.
I’m only interested in comparing myself with myself and hoping the I can improve both as a dancer, an entertainer  and as a human being.

I can’t comprehend the concept of constantly focusing your energy on trying to be the same as someone else. You won’t win if your a copy! It’s not about being the fastest, the strongest or jumping the highest. It’s about being the best that you can be. Developing yourself and your understanding of the world around you and then combining it with technique, emotions and perfomance.  All these things coming together to make you unique, individual and different. That is what I focus on. To copy, to compare, to take after or imitate, limits your ability to develope.

So to those  that are constantly copying someone elses moves, style, choreography, emulating their identity and focusing on winning rather than dancing, STOP IT, FORGET IT, focus on yourself. Develope your own identity and dare to be an  original. It’s complicated and it’s frightening but the rewards will be worth it in the end..
