Learn All The Fun Dances
With Soul Sister Ella Joyce!



FUNKaCIZETM - A new way to exercise & have FUN.

SPECIALIZED for active older adults.

RECLAIM  a soulful culture, from a soulful past.

Soul MUSIC from the 60s & 70s is truly a treasured legacy, beloved around the globe. Studies have found that Soul Music, specifically, soothes the mind, spirit, and deep memory, enhancing one's mood, providing energy, and possibly comforting those with early signs of dementia and alzheimers. It's happy music, which simply makes people feel good.

Soul DANCES of the era, perfectly reflect the music. It gave birth to an array of lively, rhythmic, moves, grooves, and dances - adorned with fun-loving names. Re-live, get fit, and most important, have some fun!  Parents, even kids, love learning the popular neighborhood dances -- bringing smiles to faces, tickles to the spirit, and funk to the soul.

Radiant actress, Ella Joyce, personally teaches a variety of classic, cool dances from the 60s & 70s, in easy, aerobic-style, funky, follow-along, dance routines.  She has created her own trademarked technique (TM), to wake up the middle-aged body, and gently nudge the middle-aged spirit, into having fun again.  Her technique equation is: 

 FUN+ExerCISE (2funkySOUL Music) = FUNKaCIZETM

You don't have to be a trained dancer to want to dance . You don't have to start with a perfect body. You don't even need a dance partner. Just a need to "boogie", and a desire to have some fun.  Improved physical fitness, improved posture, balance, flexibility, and muscle tone will merely be welcomed side-effects of this regular activity.  

Remember the red light, basement parties? Funkacize serves as a joyous mood enhancer, sweating away the blahs for just one quick hour. It's a great activity to bring friends, or guests from out-of-town, looking for something fun and different to do. Most people can't do The Twist, without breaking into a huge smile!  And smiles are good for the soul, sparked by Soul Music.

In an easy atmosphere with no one to judge, you can laugh, recall, and learn some of the era's most fun, soulful neighborhood dances from a proud, authentic Soul Sister, (straight out of Detroit & Chicago). She's a favorite actress to many, known for her ageless beauty, and youthful vitality. Her class entertains as well.

It's a SockHoP PARTY ! 

The Best Hour in Town.

Come alone. Bring Friends. Bring a Date.

Bring Guests from out-of-town ---- they'll love you for it!

  MISSION    

Joy, FUN, & Flexibity
