What you'll do

Waa gwaan? Welcome to mi experience! Jamaican dancing is a fun way to express and exercise. We'll mainly do dancehall moves. Dancehall, like most things in Jamaica, has an interesting history and we, Jamaicans, love to move our bodies. I've personally been dancing since I was a kid, doing ska, bogle & more dances with my grandparents. I truly believe dancing is a celebration of your body and a connection to your soul. Yea mon, it well good fi yuh!

Here's the structure of my class. We'll start with a warm-up for 5 minutes as we get to know each other a bit. Then we'll get into the hardcore dancing. I'll show you the old and new Jamaican dances. We'll do that for 30 mins then warm down for 10 minutes. Of course wi a guh chat likkle patois in between and share stories. It will be so much fun, sweat and overall, happiness. If you want to book a time you don't see here, let me know. Feel free to do several classes and bring your family and friends. The more, the merrier :) I am looking forward to having an irie time with you!

I can also tailor my class for children. Groups are welcomed! If you're a couple, I can have it spiced up for you. Join me for any celebration - birthdays, get-togethers, valentines, company events and I'll add that special touch. I can work with your team to tweak this experience to suit your event!

I have over 5 years of experience in the hospitality industry as an Entertainment Coordinator & Retreat Manager. I am originally from Kingston but have traveled all over Jamaica. I've done dancing on different beaches, hiking the Blue Mountain Peak, Calabash, bamboo rafting & so much more! I am currently working from home so my schedule can be pretty flexible.
Other than traveling, dancing & people, I love writing. I've self-published a couple of children's books -"Back to Basics: Dancehall ABC", "Irie the Caterpillar", "Irie the Butterfly" and more. Move and groove like a Jamaican with me.
You can check out my Etsy store where I have mainly Jamaican-themed products- t-shirts, ludo board, art, natural soaps, herb and more - https://www.etsy.com/shop/DLSDCreations

This was an amazing experience! I booked this experience for my church group of 12 people. The dance moves were so much fun, and we learned a lot about Jamaica! Latoya is super cool, responsive, and overall a wonderful person. Highly recommend you do this with a big group of friends!

Great session. It was a fun experience. The dance moves were easy to follow even for someone like me who doesn’t have the best coordination skills. Also interesting to learn about Jamaica! Highly recommend

It was a fun experience that I got to do with my friends from all over the country. We also got to hear a little bit about the island and some tips when visiting.

Latoya was a great instructor. She was friendly and shared so much about her culture. She had vibrant energy and her musical selection was on point.
