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.)"


New Classes for 2014!

Happy New Year everyone!  Just wanted to give you a heads up on a couple of new classes added to my schedule.  I will now be teaching WUKKOUT!™ twice per week at the brand new, state of the art, Coney Island YMCA.  Classes are open to YMCA members and will be held Monday and Thursday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm.  If you aren't a member and are interested in trying it out, click here for membership information and for a free trial guest pass.  Hope to see you there!
