What you'll do

We will meet up 2 miles from the touristy French Quarter for power daiquiri shots in flavors, available only at Melba's, a top favorite establishment by locals. We will toast our shots on the brand new patio and pick our Squiggle, Bounce, Shake names for the evening. We take a short and scenic stroll through the st. Claude Arts district, full of murals and great sites along the route to my favorite fitness and dance studios, The Moe Joe Gallery, owned by a Louisana native, dancer, creator of BOUNCE FITNESS, and cultural experience curator known for her distinct grasp of New Orleans cultural dance. One of the trusted local instructors will guide the to learn the legendary N.O. Bounce Dance. After class, we will have a "happynola" jello shots and photo time. If you are ready for a real creole NOLA experience, i'd love to have you.

Mika was absolutely AMAZING! The mural walk through the 7th Ward was scenic and Mika gave us a wonderful oral history of the neighborhood. The bounce class was one of the best things I’ve ever done. My girls and I enjoyed every second. To top off an amazing evening, Mika took us to a wonderful local restaurant where we had some of the best New Orleans style seafood we’ve ever had. This is an amazing experience and Mika was amazing!

Great experience! Mika was amazing. The tour was fun and full of laughs. The bounce class is a one of a kind experience. Not only did we sweat but we also learned about the history of bounce music! Wouldn’t have been able to experience this without Mika. Thanks so much

This was the absolute highlight of the trip! It was such a unique experience! Mika was interested in getting to know us and sharing a dance class she loves! We laughed, danced and sweat our booties off!
