Famed Joey L. Dowdy
DANCE OF LIFE
“I believe Life Is A Dance within itself, there’s a forward step, a sidestep, a back step, steps of confusion that make you spin around; and amid all its mayhem there are steps designed to help you Make Your Quantum Leap!”
“As a kid when I first worked in the entertainment industry my dream was to become a professional performer. I achieved it, and to this day I’m thankful that I still love it! However, when I became an adult and looked back at my humble beginnings, what I realized was this. It was because I used those talents The Great Divine blessed me with others.” I invite you to look at the results, my OFFICIAL BIO.

How I Said, “Goodbye to Depression and Hello to Progression!” JLD
I don’t struggle with too much anymore because I’ve learned how to recognize what things are holding me back. Then I confront them. It’s because I’ve had to develop the mindset of being a survivor with enduring a string of health-related incidents in 2016. Such as, I survived two major surgeries, hip replacement, coronary heart recovery and two car accidents all within six months. Truth be told, it was a true test of my will power and faith. Yet, there were three valuable things I learned. One, I learned I was much stronger than I thought and how through God’s grace I could overcome any obstacle. Two, I learned to listen to my body and take heed to what it’s saying to me. Three, I learned how precious life is and to take advantage of “living each moment” as though it could be my last. Like I stated in my book “Rise to The Rhythm & Get Off The Dreadmill poetic video, “Life Is way too short to live it with dread, so why drag your feet like a walking dead?” So, Get Up & Groove!
