    Kukuwa moves are authentic - it's not a workout, it's the real thing - West African dancing requires fitness and she gets you there.
  • at 12:12 am on 4.29.14
    Strength training and fitness without feeling like a workout. Less injury because the training leverages natural moves, but nets more results because of the sustained, high-energy dance.

    As a fitness freak I was looking for something that combined my love of African music/dance and a full-on workout. Through the glass, I once saw Cass teach a class at the gym. Her energy, smile, movement and rhythm blew me away. I was at her class front row the week after. Boom!
  • at 4:31 pm on 4.28.14
    The best of the best!
