Learn All The Fun Dances
With Soul Sister Ella Joyce!



FUNKaCIZETM - Exercise & have FUN.

SPECIALIZED for active - older adults.

RECLAIM  a soulful culture, from a soulful past.

Soul MUSIC - Our treasured legacy, beloved around the globe. Studies have found that Soul Music soothes the mind, spirit, and soul, enhancing one's mood, providing positive energy, and possibly comforting those with early signs of dementia or alzheimers. Soul Music simply makes people feel good.

Soul DANCES from the 60s & 70s perfectly reflect the music. This era gave birth to an array of lively, moves, grooves, and dances - adorned with fun-loving names. Re-live, get fit, and most important, have fun!  Parents, even kids, love learning the popular, nostalgic, neighborhood dances.  It brings smiles to faces, tickles to the spirit, and funk to the soul.

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

Her equation is: 

 FUN+ExerCISE (2funkySOUL Music) = FUNKaCIZETM

You don't have to be a trained dancer. You don't have to start with a perfect body. You don't even need a dance partner -- Just a desire to boogie down, and have some fun. Beware: Improvement in posture, muscle tone, overall fitness, and mood, just might be a side-effect of this regular funkacize activity.  

Remember SockHops at the gymnasiums? Red-light basement parties?  Funkacize serves as a memory mood enhancer, sweating away the blahs for just one quick hour. It's an easy, fun activity.  Bring friends, or guests from out-of-town looking for something different to do. Most people can't do The Twist, without breaking into a huge smile!  And smiles are good for the soul.

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

It's a SockHop PARTY ! 

The Best Hour in Town.

Come alone or Bring Friends.

Bring a Date.

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

  MISSION    

Joy, FUN, & Flexibity
