Dance Vybance up a storm at
COMBINE ENERGETIC dance moves with great vibes and the result is pure Vybance! Dancers Samantha Strachan, Carreen Walton and Shaquille Laing have joined forces to offer adult dance classes geared towards getting fit and having fun adult dance classes geared towards getting fit and having fun
So the ‘Ladies of Lifestyle’ decided to tackle yet another health and fitness challenge, testing their stamina on the dance floor. Here is what they had to say about their class at Vybance:
In no time I was drenched with sweat. The few strands of hair that had escaped from my ponytail clung to my scalp and forehead for dear life. My body screamed for rest but I was captivated by the beat and held prisoner – Afrobeat, folk, soca, dancehall, sexy stiletto, and modern contemporary. It all flowed through my veins – and not entirely of my own free will.
The Lifestyle team found itself at Vybance dance studio in Kingston, and Carreen Walton and Samantha Strachan were taking us through the paces. Man, those girls can move!
When it was time for sexy stiletto (which I was really looking forward to) my thighs really got a workout – leg days got nothing on the deadly combination of Strachan and Beyoncé. That’s a deadly combination.
It’s a complete body workout. If felt like when you haven’t been to the gym all week and turn up on Friday and your trainer says let’s do an full-body workout today.
But although quite gruelling, the endorphins it released made me feel spectacular. Having not been to Latin dance sessions in more than 10 years, or done ballet since I was 12, it seems I totally forgot the joys of moving to music.
But trust me, if you are looking for an activity that’s really FUN while working up a good sweat and getting a complete workout, you need to head to Vybance.
Now, if only I could get the Moscato rhythm out of my head.
Not only does stiletto sexy look good, it is also quite a workout. Carreen Walton (front) leads the group through a fun-filled session.
