Here Is What They Are Saying

I know how to dance since I was 7 years old. My dad is a dancer. But, I didn’t know how to dance with my soul. With Kukuwa African Dance Workout, I learned how to use my body to dance and connect with the earth. African Dance with Kukuwa taught me how to dance using my whole spirit. I love it and practice it every day of my life!  -Mercedez, Panama

 I Love Kukuwa African dance workout as an instructor because it’s a great way to have a spiritual connection with my ancestors. It’s allows me to pay homage to my Beautiful African people! The music and movements brings so much joy to my heart and soul! And I love to experience this feeling with others in my class.  -Bettina White, Chicago, IL
