After my first class I was not only hooked but an official devotee!
Follow this amazing lady! Support fitness professionals who lead by inspiration not intimidation.
In my first time taking Socanomics I felt a few different reactions. The first was joy. Joy of dance and of music and if feeling connected with rhythm. The music is auditory Prozac. Also the feeling I was learning to speak a different language with my body. What unites all dancers is that we believe in the power of nonverbal communication with the body and some of us even believe that body movement communicates more than oral or written language. This class taught me yet another language in which to communicate. I also found a reverence and respect for Caribbean dance and how truly multidimensional and complex it is. I loved that I was welcomed as a new dancer and was able to take breaks as needed and challenge myself. The non-judgmental and friendly vibe kept me positive and happy throughout the class. I also was surprised at how much I already knew from music videos and just being a general fan of dance. I would def take it again and again.
This is great. Absolutely everyone from the novice to a seasoned amateur dancer can get something from this video. You can learn new steps and or just use it to keep up with the ones you've already mastered and layer new elements over top. And if you've never heard of Soca or think you can't dance to it, you can. The rhythm will lead you and then you will be hooked for life. I hate dynamic stretching but I find dance videos a very palatable way to keep my joints lubricated. Instructor is great too. No nonsense, no fake hype. Just her very likable self!
Your classes have inspired me so much! When I first started taking your classes, I used to get choked up listening to your inspiration. It has empowered me to really push myself in a way that I havent done before. Just want to thank you!!
Selena is by far the most amazing and inspirational instructors I have had. As a survivor of so many difficulties in life, I truly could not have survived without her positivity, kindness and inspiration. Joy and optimism has come back to me thanks to Selena. And I strive everyday to be as amazing inside and out, as she is.
I credit Selena in empowering me to move past my comfort zone and knowing that I can accomplish anything that I put my mind to.
Before Selena’s classes, I always enjoyed exercise but was never “addicted”. For some reason I never found that one class or sport that kept me coming back.
I can’t describe the high I feel while in class; I love to dance and there is plenty of dancing (to the best music!) but Selena also instills such a sense of purpose in us - she pushes us forward, and through whatever is holding us back. I tend to take her morning classes as afterwards I honestly feel I can take on the world,
Lastly, Selena is an absolute expert in creating a community within her classes. She introduces us to one another and before long we are saying hello to each other. Today, I have friends in class who I speak with throughout the week and see outside of class. Going to a class where your instructor greet you by name and with a huge smile is a great feeling. There is so much interaction on Facebook and Instagram between us all. Part of the reason we all love her so much is that she makes every person in the room feel like a Badass!
