Dr. Hall-Scott writes, "I love teaching Afrovibe™ for many reasons! Afrovibe™ is defined as an “audacious cocktail of style”, allowing you to be bold and daring in your dance and fitness practice. Afrovibe™ has a freeing quality. It’s encourages release of the spine, hips and pelvis; you feel so light and unburdened after class! It is also polyrhythmic - encouraging you to stomp, roll, “whine” and groove, all within the same move for a great workout! Afrovibe™ gives the gift of Africanist dance to everyone, inviting us to reclaim our bodies and empower us cross-culturally. Afrovibe™ motto is “Everybody can vibe with Afrovibe” because it encourages community! With Afrovibe™, I am free to step out the rigid parameters of my American-Mommy-Scholar life, and simply enjoy moving with others. Give it a try; you won’t regret it!
Afrovibe is a French, Afrocentric cardio workout built around the cultural dance forms of Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean and Brazil. Come vibe to the inviting rhythms of Afro house, soca, raggamuffin and much more!
Cost per class: $15/person
Cost if you bring a friend: $20/2 people
