Afro Dance & Heat Online With Ivan (Open-Level | Mini Choreos | Cardio)

About this Event

Hello everyone,

We are excited to announce that starting Sunday, May 10 at 2 pm, we will officially be running *FREE* Afro Dance & Heat sessions alternatively every week! Why? Breaking social isolation caused by the coronavirus (covid19) pandemic using the power of (Afro) dance has been our primary motivation to start and keep doing these free sessions. Furthermore, as of today, May 1st, we've now hosted about 5 free online sessions and the energy, the love, as well as the atmosphere we've witnessed at each of them have been nothing short of amazing! Communities and people of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life have come together (online) to move their bodies to the rhythms of Afrobeats sounds.

What exactly would these "alternations" look like? Afro Dance (Mini-choreos) online sessions will be held every other 2 weeks (bi-weekly) on Sundays from 2 PM till 3 PM starting May 10 and Afro Heat (Cardio & movement) online sessions will be held bi-weekly on Sundays from 2 PM till 245 PM starting May 17!

See y'all soon and we can't wait to vibe with y'all again! And if you ever have any feedback regarding these online sessions, please don't hesitate to reach out! I will never not take it well :)

*Tickets to these online sessions will always be free! However, your donations, if you can afford to support my art in these difficult times, would mean the world to me!

What to have with you (if you want/can): A water bottle, comfortable shoes, athletic or comfortable active wear and a towel. OR just relax, take it easy, show up "as you are" cause after all, you are home :)

Instructor: Ivan Touko
