You've always known that there is way more to life than just the average 9-5 and you want to awaken that power inside of you!
Let me know if you relate to one or more of these..
I am looking for ways to bring more fun and excitement into my life.
I want to build the confidence to be able to dance and move how I like and not care what anybody thinks of me.
I want to feel a sense of freedom and express my creativity, I may currently find it hard to do this.
I am wanting to get out of my comfort zone and learn to believe in myself more.
I need something to help relieve my stress and clear my head.
I want to learn about Dancehall.
If you relate to any one or more of the above it means ........
You're ready for a new adventure, to discover your full potential and start BELIEVING in yourself !
Our life and who we are today is a result of our upbringing and the influence our environment, experiences and people in our lives have had on us.
You may have been told that you weren't good enough, that you wouldn't be able to achieve your dreams in life or maybe others doubted your potential... and this may have held you back alot in life.
How do we let go of this? How do we start living a fulfilling life knowing that without a shadow of a doubt that we have the capabilities and POWER to go after ANYTHING we desire in this lifetime?
The Answer? We created the supportive environment for it!
We made going after your dreams and believing in yourself FUN and EXCITING in an environment where we can express how we feel through dance without the judgement.
We made dancing a tool to assist you with breaking the limiting beliefs in your life. To show what a life of FREEDOM and JOY can do for you.
Our bodies NEED movement , your heart BEATS to keep you alive. When you stop moving you stop the flow, then we become stagnant physically, emotionally and mentally (and this impacts us in negative ways, in many areas of our lives).
Leave self judgement and expectations at the door and come see how something so fun and easy to follow can create a world full of joy and opportunities for you!
Being a youth in Jamaica had its positives and negatives.
I was someone who grew up in a great home, but being out in the streets, you're exposed to temptations that can lead you down the wrong path and lose your life just like that.
It's easier to be successful doing bad than good, but god gave me the gift of dance that was there through my struggles, and that gift enlightened the true purpose within myself.
I knew I couldn't do badness and dance, and my dreams were bigger than life so I made a choice to begin to live my life everyday being my best self, in all that I do.
Allow me to explain...
Being introduced to Dancehall at a young age kept me firm in my mindset and gave me a purpose.
I was still in school when I started learning to dance. Other older kids would see this, laugh at me, try to belittle me and try to crush my spirit.
I could have allowed the negativity, doubt and unsupportive people to get inside my head, I could have given them that power and stop dancing all together.
Instead I made a choice and from then on it ignited a fire inside me that gave me the motivation to continue to improve and better myself not only in dancing, but in every aspect in my life... and this would require me to BELIEVE in myself no matter what life threw my way.
Dance gave me the tools to get me through life.
It was there through my struggles, struggles that alot of us have known and felt, and also struggles that many may not have experienced if you're living in a first world country.
On days I was heartbroken, on days I felt like the world was ontop of my shoulders, on days that stress would consume me, when I lost sight of where I was going in life,
Dance reminded me of my full potential, and to continue to believe in myself every single day, even when things were rough.
I stand proud today, having achieved many of my dreams.
Dreams that would have never been possible if I had decided to keep myself in the dark all those years ago, if I had listened to all those who doubted me, if I had given up when things were tough.
Today I inspire other to wake up to their full potential, to believe the life they want to live is possible, to build your strength to handle whatever life throws your way... to empower you to go after anything in life that brings you JOY.
If I can do it, you can do it!!!

Check out what our students have had to say...
I have always loved moving my body but had never considered dancing. The thought of joining a dance class was nerve-racking considering I had little to no dance experience.
In 2021 I decided to bite the bullet and enrol myself into the Beginners Dancehall Foundations Course.
All I wanted out of the course was to gain some skills and have some fun, but by the end of the course I had gained so much more.
The connections I shared with everyone in the room and the relationship I was able to build with myself was a gift I never expected.
Within a matter of 6 weeks I built the confidence to dance and move my body in a way that felt natural to me, I felt free to be me.
Rasta Huxx really created such a safe, supportive and encouraging environment for us all to enjoy dancing without feeling judged.
The skills I have learned since being with Out N Bad Dance Studios have really impacted me in so many ways, as I've learned that movement is so powerful in overcoming anything that I had once thought was limiting me . This has allowed me to grow as a person and reach my goals more quickly.
I would more than 10000% recommend this course to anyone who not only wants to learn how to dance and learn more about Dancehall, but to anyone who wants to gain a new perspective of yourself and the world.
