SOCACIZE

Well, I'll be honest......since the end of Booty Fitness Camp in early August I haven't done much in terms of keeping up my exercise routine. I know, I know.....ah stickin'!!


So to overcome this lull and to stay in shape as the fall season rapidly approaches I have decided to sign up for.......

So what is SOCACIZE you say......


SOCACIZE™
A creative blend of high/low impact aerobics, African and indigenous Caribbean dance movements performed to Calypso, Soca, Zouk, Reggae music and on occasion drums. Prepare for a one hour SOCA jam! Socacize™ includes cardio, weight training, toning and tightening drills and combos to help you tone those troubled spots: arms, abs, legs and butts! The ultimate goal of the program is to work-out with emphasis on carefully selected music and movements to synchronize with the mind and body to burn calories FAST (up to 1000 per session).


WOW....am I ready for this?


SOCACIZE was started by Ms. Ayana Lee Rivears. Here is a a little bio on her as taken from the SOCACIZE website:


Ayanna Lee-Rivears is a dancer, SOCACIZE / aerobics instructor, teacher and choreographer. She started dancing at the age of 12 with Ballet Jordan in Toronto, where she was trained in ballet, modern, and jazz. As a native of Trinidad and Tobago, Ayanna was interested in learning the dance styles practiced in that particular country. With a threshold of confidence, Ayanna ventured to Caribbean Folk Performers where she was exposed to indigenous Caribbean, African and Modern Contemporary dance styles. During this time she established a reputation as “Limbo Dancer Extraordinaire” which has in turn, led her to tour extensively in the USA, Virgin Islands, Asia, Canada and the Caribbean. She has also opened for Destiny’s Child with the Boom
Tang Boys at the Royal Thompson Hall.

After completing the Fitness Instructor Certified Program at Canadian Fitness Profession (Can-Fit-Pro) Ayanna started “Socacize™ to promote a fun way to exercise with a combination of dance moves, weight and strength training. She works closely with various fitness centres (Premier Fitness, Flirty Girls, etc.), corporate companies, recreation centres, schools, and dance companies. Ayanna currently conducts these spirited and energetic classes throughout the GTA.


Classes throughout the GTA. That means there could be a class in your neighbourhood so why not sign up!!
