Dance, Choreography, Teaching Artist
As a lover of dance, Kendra’s upbringing in Afro-Cuban folklore expanded quickly to include modern, house, and Afro-Caribbean folklore. Her love inspired her to travel to Spain, Cuba, and Brazil where she expanded her knowledge. Her travels have influenced her work that explores the intersectionalities between African, Caribbean, and African American folklore. Kendra loves to share her knowledge by dancing, teaching, and choreographing. For more info, read her Bio.

My classes are a total body workout that focus on strengthening your core muscles to support your entire body. Along with other stretching and conditioning exercises, I emphasizes proper technique and alignment of each exercise to condition the body for maximum strength and efficiency.
