Jamaica/ Ska Dance Workout is group fitness with reggae dance hall and ska music & moves from Jamaica and the world. Fun & easy to learn.

I’m a huge reggae/ ska fan and certified Zumba instructor. I’ve taught group fitness classes for several years and had the idea of combining those interests to create this class.

It would be great to see you June 30, when I'm doing 20 minutes of ska & reggae dancehall as part of a 2-hour Zumbathon fundraiser in Lockport, Illinois. Click Zumbathon button for details.

I'm also available at no charge for other Chicago-area fundraisers.

Chicago people: I usually include one or two ska or reggae dancehall routines in the Zumba class I teach at LA Fitness, 2828 N Clark Street, Wednesday at 5:45 p.m.

For regular news, follow us on Twitter, Instagram or Tumblr @SkaDanceWorkout. (I'm also on Facebook, but if you "like" my page please click the link to ask for notifications. I rarely make more than one post per week, usually less, so you won't get inundated & that's the only way to make sure you get my posts.)

Music pace varies throughout the class and I offer variations to accommodate different fitness levels.

Hope to see you in class!
