ABOUT THE SHOW:

Dancers do it with rhythm, and often in groups. So do choreographers, musicians and composers.

Their performances, often seemingly effortless to spectators, can require months – even years – of training and preparation, not to mention substantial sweat equity and support. Those subjects, and the muses that move dancer/composer Dario Vaccaro and musician/composer/producer Patricia Burgess, will be the focus of the SCORE Radio program I’m hosting on June 27, 2007.

The show will air on New York Radio WVOX 1460 AM and www.wvox.com at 11:30 AM – noon, Eastern Time. Listeners can also hear and share via telephone at (01) 914.636.0110.

ABOUT THE PARTICIPANTS:

Dario is one moving dude. His status as Cultural Ambassador of Argentina and other impressive credentials are right in step with the prestigious recognitions earned by his company, the Dario Vaccaro Dance Project.

Patricia deserves to be heard, too. The Founder and Creative Director of Water Moon Arts has received numerous awards and honorable recognitions for her compositions, performances and productions, some of which have been offered in collaboration with Dario. For example, on August 2, 2007 at 6:30 PM, Eastern Time, Patricia will be performing with the Dario Vaccaro Dance Project at Jacob’s Pillow.

I, as “Meet SCORE Counselor Lisa Tolliver” describes, volunteer as a business counselor and talk radio host with SCORE Chapter 306 in Westchester County, New York. In that capacity, I have worked with Dario and Patricia to harness traditional and digital media to promote their work, raise funds and interact with audiences.

SCORE Radio’s next guest is a knockout: boxing champion-turned-entrepreneur, Doug (“the Cobra”) DeWitt

February 2, 2007

By Lisa Tolliver

It’s going down! “It” is the Valentine’s Day match of 2007.

In one corner will be: three-time middleweight boxing world champion/trainer/actor Doug (“the Cobra”) DeWitt. In the other: SCORE Chapter 306 counselor, Chuck Auerbach. The men will face off across mics, not mats.

The venue: New York radio WVOX 1460 AM, not a ring. The time: 11:30 AM to high noon, Eastern.

For some, going rounds with the Cobra has been a challenge, if not a TKO. But this is a sweetheart of a match that Chuck (a heavy-hitter with SCORE Westchester) can handle. You see, Chuck will be interviewing Doug about the prizefighter’s “boxer’s workout” training program.

Here’s how Wikipedia\Doug_Dewitt describes the boxer’s business, Doug DeWitt’s Boxing Studio:

He offers extensive work on speed bag, heavy bag, and wall bag. The focus is to improve hand speed, coordination, and strength. Technique, punch combinations, and defensive movements are taught one-on-one with hand pad contact.

Incorporated into the training is an intensive cardio workout with jump rope repetition, lightweight training, and use of the medicine ball. Footwork and ring movement are also taught.

Class format is specifically designed to be a “boxer’s workout.” The training for both men and women is modified to each individual’s capabilities.

Among those trained [have been]: Doug LaBassa, Anthony Scagleone, Tim Herlihy, John Norrison, Julien LaScala, [and] Mario Penzarri.

Doug trains both children and adults. DougDeWittBoxing.com, describes the children’s classes thusly:

The Ultimate Way To Build Confidence, Self-Esteem, Develop Self-Discipline, Self-Control, and Athletic Skills, While Having Lots of Fun!

DeWitt’s site describes the adult classes as “a complete workout for men and women. […] Classes are offered in a group setting or scheduled one-on-one to accommodate the student’s schedule.”

Come join the fray. Tune your radio to WVOX 1460 AM, listen live online at www.wvox.com, or phone the call-in line: (01) 914.636.0110.

The countdown has begun. Let’s get ready to rumble!
