#TBT - Viva la Vida Cover by Anthony Rodriguez

I was browsing through some YouTube videos and came across this footage of me dancing for performing artist and entertainer extraordinaire, Anthony Rodriguez.  He performed a cover of Coldplay's, "Viva La Vida" and also created the choreography.  It was filmed almost 4 years ago; I thought it would be fun to share.  Enjoy!



FREE WUKKOUT!™ this Wednesday June 18th!

Hey everyone!  We are kicking off our summer session with a FREE WUKKOUT!™ class this Wednesday June 18th at Aspire 2 Dance in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.  Classes will continue weekly through the end of July (with no class July 2nd) for $10 per class.  All details on the flyer below and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  Tell yuh friends, bring yuh flag, bring yuh rag and be ready to WUKKOUT!™

If a free class still isn't enough to convince you to come try it, perhaps a little inspiration from Machel will help!  Below, one of my favorite songs from 2014 carnival (and a small taste of the songs we'll be wukking out to), Machel Montano "Ministry of Road (M.O.R.)"
