Get block from ContentArea



I'm trying to get a hold of a property belonging to the block, of type MyBlock, that I have in a ContentArea.

I have the following code:

private string ShowSavingsAdvice(IList list)
            var contentLoader = ServiceLocator.Current.GetInstance();
            foreach (var item in list)
                var block = contentLoader.Get(item.ContentLink);

            return "";

The variable block is now of the type MyBlockProxy. How do I get it to be of type MyBlock so that I can get a hold of its properties?

var block = contentLoader.Get<MyBlock>(item.ContentLink)


var block = contentLoader.Get<BlockData>(item.ContentLink) as MyBlock
