Afrobeat Fit is the perfect marriage of my passion for my West African culture and my love for dance. I was born partially deaf which was corrected by surgery and my mother enrolled me in dance classes soon after. I often joke that the first thing I heard was music. I started dancing at the tender age of 2 and continued dancing, training and working as a professional dance to this very day. I am in love with Afro Dance, Tap, Hip Hop and Step Dance.
I currently work as a Director of Diversity and Inclusion at a local college.

Kemi and her team is so welcoming and loving! She is a great instructor and makes everyone feel at home. If you’re looking to be active during your time in DC, learn new dances inspired by different African cultures/countries, and looking to engage all parts of your body. This experience is for you!! It was so fun and I left this experience fully ready for the rest of my day. Bring a friend to #EngageYourCore and #Sweat!
