Sadcie: Caribbean Fitness

Want to experience a workout while learning dance moves and choreography, which you can use where ever you go? Do you love soca, dancehall, reggae, kaiso, and other musical genres of the West Indies? Do you want to learn more about the Caribbean culture? Then come to a SADCIE (S-ah-d-see) class where you’ll experience the music and movement of the Caribbean Diaspora. You’ll be sure to get the party started with Sadcie in your back pocket. So why be fit when you can FETE (party)? Because Sadcie is not fitness, it’s REAL FETENESS! Instructor: Dennis A. Wilson.
