The New Alternative in Fitness! The word is spreading...

Mademoiselle
“Drums. Fun. Hot beat. Bare Feet. The newest fitness trend is straight out of Africa... African dance is the celebration of the self and the community...Before you know it, you’ll be jumping for joy... nothing compares to African dance when it comes to reducing stress and fostering self-expression.”

New York Times (feature, The Living Section)
“Students enter...then leave an hour and a half later re-energized by the rhythms of African-inspired dancing. The adult classes include live percussionist.. .There are more than 60 adult classes a week. The model Roshumba is a regular. . .”

New York Post
“Who needs Freud when you have Jerome Robbins? Or Joneeba Mouflet? Be it Haitian, African, Cuban, ballet, hip-hop, salsa or even belly dancing, Mouflet and his 40 part-time instructors will teach those with two left feet to shake a suave booty. (Live) Drums are what make the difference.”

Heart & Soul
“Ethnic-dance craze provides a great workout. At...Djoniba Dance & Drum Centre, experience ethnic dance to the beat of live drum while getting a great workout.”

Caribbean Life
“There is nothing like when the joy is realized in the doing of the steps and the students smile in the doing- that is the break-through, the thinking process is breaking down and the joy of the celebratory dance becomes no longer rote but real.”

Dance Pages
“He (Joneeba Mouflet) devotes a huge amount of energy to an underprivileged children’s programs which he developed. 40 students were offered full scholarships to study dance and music, and he hopes to raise that number to 200 very soon.”

Administrators/Teachers
“High school students can suffer from short attention spans: your program carefully varied the music and dance to keep their attention. As teenagers, their experience (and comfort) with different cultures is limited: you carefully, quickly, and under-standably explained the link...your touch with today’s multi-cultural teenagers is right on target. -M. Robinson, educator, Curtis High School, NY “I thank you for what you accomplished for our students and how you furthered the goals of our
multicultural curriculum.” -RW. Graham, educator, John Jay High School, NY
