Whats up wreckless people?!
I can’t let the new year come without giving a huge shout out to an amazing friend and performer Shola K. Roberts!!!
This time last year I was performing with her in the African Dance Company, Kowteff and since then she has definitely been a huge light in my life. Not only is she a genuine soul but she is super passionate about dancing and intends to share it with the world. I’m not even sure where to begin.
A month ago I attended her Soca Dance class at Mark Morris Dance Center in Brooklyn and this happened. Check it out below.
Then after getting the groove she travelled to her hometown, Grenada to instruct at Conception Dance Theatres’ Diversity in Dance Workshop series, returned to “the states” and was honored by Caribbean Life Newspaper for their 40 under 40 Awards. Need I say more? Well there is more!
To add on to the awesomeness she recently partnered with Carnival Virgin to release a FREE 8 week workout series called Pace, which is happening right now! Along with the workout series, there are some classes happening LIVE in New York City this weekend! So click to purchase here! Who said the winter has to have you in the house eating ice cream and drinking hot chocolate? Even if you aren’t going to Carnival you better pretend you are and get with it! I know I am:-)
Aside from all of this excellence, Shola is a Howard University alum. So I have to represent to the fullest for this girl! So I dedicate this months’s SPECIAL SPOTLIGHT to Shola Roberts:-)
