We're so EXCITED to have Miss Donicia bring this powerful class back to Foley! We had a BLAST at the last one!!!!!

Come enjoy an upbeat remix to a creative tradition, Afro Fusion incorporates the tribal roots of West African dance with the urban and contemporary style of hip-hop. In Africa, dance was and continues to be fundamental to society, bringing the community together in a spiritual aspect. Benefits include improved flexibility, endurance, mental functioning, and coordination. Let’s get moving together and build up confidence with this fun style that doubles as an aerobic work out! Learn some new moves and show off your kicks and high jumps to the latest electronic hip-hop sounds!

Donicia began her career as a professional dancer in 2006, when she joined the D.R.E.A.M. Studios Dance Company. Throughout her career touring the North East, the Massachusetts native was invited to tour in Zimbabwe with recording artist, Mary Taylor. Her love of the arts challenged Donicia to study several styles, including Jazz, West African, Hip-hop, and Broadway. She began choreographing for the company when she was 14, and also functioned as the captain of her high school’s dance team. Donicia left the company in 2011 to attend college in LaGrange, Georgia, where she founded the Panthers Dance Project for her fellow students, as well as voluntarily brought dance to the Boys and Girls Club. Now, Donicia is the owner of Enlightened Elements Massage, where she incorporates her scientific background with her energy work to produce outstanding healing results.
