Learn All The Fun Dances
With Soul Sister Ella Joyce!
FUNKACIZETM -- A new way to exercise and have FUN.
SPECIALIZED for active older adults, or adults who wish to become active again.
RECLAIMING our soulful culture, from a soulful era.
Soul MUSIC from the 60s & 70s is truly a treasured legacy in our lifetime. Soul Music is beloved around the globe. Studies have found that Soul Music, specifically, soothes the mind, spirit, and deep memory, possibly comforting those with early signs of dementia and alzheimers. Soul Music is sampled by some of the greatest artists of today. It's happy music that made you want to jump up, dance, tap your toes, snap your fingers, bop your shoulders, and sing along. It was friendly music which simply made people feel good.
Soul DANCES of the era, perfectly reflected the music, giving birth to an array of lively, rhythmic, moves, grooves, and dances - adorned with fun-loving names to identify them. Re-live, get fit, and most important, have some fun! Parents, and even kids, love learning the popular neighborhood dances together -- bringing smiles to their faces, tickles to the spirit, and funk to the soul. Radiant actress, Ella Joyce, personally teaches a variety of classic, cool dances from the 60s & 70s, in simple, funky, entertaining, aerobic-style, dance routines. She has created her own trademark technique, to wake up the middle-aged body, and gently nudge the middle-aged spirit, into having fun again. Her technique equation is:
FUN+ExerCISE 2funkySOUL Music = FUNKaCIZE
You don't have to be a trained dancer. You don't have to start with a perfect body. You don't even need a dance partner. Just happy feet, a need to "boogie", and a desire to have some fun. Improved physical fitness, posture, balance, muscle tone, and renewed energy, will merely be a side-effect of this regular activity. It's a great start toward other activities, if you've been inactive for a while.
Remember the red light, basement parties? Funkacize serves as a joyous mood enhancer, sweating away the blahs for just one quick hour. Or, it's a place to bring friends, and guests from out-of-town, looking for something fun and different to do on a Friday nite. It's a scientific fact that most people cannot do The Twist, without breaking into a huge smile! And smiles are good for the soul.
In an easy atmosphere with no one to judge, you can laugh, recall, and learn some of the era's most fun, classic & soulful neighborhood dances from a proud, authentic Soul Sister, (straight out of Detroit & Chicago), and a favorite actress to many, known for her seemingly, ageless beauty, and youthful vitality.
It's a SockHoP PARTY !
The best hour in town.
Come alone. Bring Friends. Bring a Date.
Bring Guests from out-of-town ---- they'll love you for it!
Joy, FUN, & Flexibity
