Through a series of guided rhythmic movements, dancers will embody elements of AfroCuban, AfroBrazilian, and AfroCaribbean sacred and popular cultural dance traditions to a pulsating sound track of percussive drum beats by the world’s best Cuban & Brazilian percussionists.
Message From Kimberly…
Here it is! After immersing myself inside the study of African diaspora cultural dance practices both in and outside of the Caribbean, Cuba, and Brazil for the past 25-years and then spending the past 15-years choreographing and performing in Dance DVDs…
I am over the moon excited to merge my two worlds: the study of ancestral dances practices with the modern technologies of digital media.
Although I never could have imagined owning my own dance studio, it’s been a lifelong dream to create an educational platform that would help share the healing powers of these resilient dance practices.
If you’ve enjoyed dancing along with me in-person, in my Dance & Be Fit Dance DVDs or on GaiaTV, then you will LOVE these video classes….
I am grateful to my teachers who have taught me everything I know and have given me their blessings to share this knowledge with my students.
San Diego Danceworks believe that dance as an art form develops the whole person. Their teachers are compassionate and knowledgeable, respecting individual body types and developmental needs and encourage creativity and expression of feelings, giving students a confidence in their ability to think for themselves and bring their ideas into actions.

Brandon "BURRITO" Borrero has been bringing his open level HIP HOP classes to La Vie for a while now. Open to ALL levels, Burritos classes embrace a positive energy where everyone is able to express themselves through dance in their own way! As he will tell you, we are all different, the person in front of you, behind you, beside you... doesn't look like YOU or MOVE like YOU! These classes are great for beginners just starting out and for the advanced dancer that wants to SHOW!
Group and solo video footage available for download at the end of every class!
