Advance Registration for SOCACIZE™ Boot camp & SOCACIZE™ in Regina, Saskatchewan!

We had a breathless class in Brampton last Sunday with the drums.
Nation, our drummer, had us panting and sweating - out of breath - with the energizing Caribbean and African rhythms.
Nation played – the djembe (pronounced /?d??mbe?/ JEM-bay).
It is also known as djimbe, jenbe, jymbe, jembe, yembe, or jimbay, or sanbanyi. It’s a skin covered hand drum, shaped like a large goblet, and meant to be played with bare hands. According to the Bamana people in Mali , the name “djembe” comes directly from the saying "Anke dje, anke be" which translates to "everyone gather together", and defines the drum's purpose. "Dje" is the verb for "gather" in Bamanakan, and "be" translates as "everyone" in Bamanakan.

Advanced Registrations for the
SOCACIZE Boot camp-The official work out for Caribana, will be held on
Saturday MAY 30th from 12-3pm inside
Tropicana Community Services (670 Progress Avenue, Unit 14).
Advanced registrations in the west end will be held at a later date.

The Lululemon classes have been like a Dr. Jay fete - you feel energized and don't want to leave! This Saturday May 30th is the last class.

SOCACIZE Boot camp for Caribana starts
June 18th on Thursdays 6-8pm at
Carnival Nationz mas camp in Scarborough
June 20th on Saturdays 9-11 am
at Terry Miller Community Centre in Brampton.
Are you ready to sweat?

Regina? YES, thats correct. The 1-hour soca jam will kick off the
MOSAIC annual multicultural festival this year.

Thanks for your ongoing support!
