African Dance Workout for health

In my youthful days, I used to be in an African Dance Troupe called Sakumoh and it was based in Tottenham UK. I really loved it as we got to travel perform at various venues as we shared our love for African Dance. During lock down, i discovered a lady called Vikki who is a Kukuwa African Fitness instructor, as I attended her classes, I felt my passion for dance coming back. She mentioned the training she went through, and I too decided to undertake the training with KUKUWA I also love to laugh, and trained to be a laughter yoga teacher and have been delivering sessions for various organisations over the years.

I must say studying to be a kukuwa fitness instructor was one of the challenging things I have done as I have not studied for years and learning about body parts etc at first was not exciting to me. Despite this, I carried on with the course and though I failed the first exam, I just carried on and was happy when I eventually passed both the theory and practical.

Due to the success of my first taster sessions last month, I decided to put some more free sessions this month before my paid sessions start in September. Email me now to book your free space and I will send you the zoom link
