5 Years of Soka Tribe!!!
Come Dance With Our Special Guests!
We brought together our faves guests last year to shake things up a bit! We wanted to create a vibe with our past partners, you won’t want to miss this! Each artist will lead a mini-session!
Betty Rox is a Caribbean dancer, choreographer, and instructor. Betty takes you through a cultural experience, blending authentic movements from several Caribbean islands. Her class combos get your body into positions you may have never thought you’d do, but her vibrant energy makes you move all doubt to the side and just go for it! So remember- this is your shot! We’re going to be having fun live via our virtual anniversary. Check her out on Instagram/ @bettyrox

For an unforgettable afternoon!!! We all danced and learned some new moves and had a good time with our famalaylaylay…
We were beyond thrilled about the experience and turn out of our 5th Anniversary Celebration.
The love, laughs, stories, tips, and tricks from the instructors and of course lots of soca! It was a Saturday well spent and you can
These last few months have been life-altering and we miss being with you all in person so much. We’ve had to reimagine how we operate and stay connected. Even in these very different times the vibe and energy we created together lifted my spirit and reminded me of why this organization continues to thrive- its community built around carnival interests. Whether you came to us from a fete to class, to those moments we hang on to rocking a stage our goal was to give you a taste of the greatest show on earth so you could pocket some of that joy. Thank you for being a part of this community and for those of you that came out spending your Saturday with us to celebrate our 5-year milestone. We hope you will stay on this journey with us to the next five and beyond. it’s just the beginning. If ya missed it catch up here!
