MOVIN' AND SHAKIN'
Witness the Fitness.
I did my first aerobics class with my mum in the church hall on the school holidays. From those humble beginnings, I now love being able to share aerobic exercise and group exercise programs face to face, and online.
What is different about my classes compared to the usual "shape up in 6 weeks or less" B.S the diet industry has sold us is, my classes ooze my personality and genuine love for jumping around to music. They are uplifting, about how you feel, not how you look, and genuinely goofy.
I teach the following for all bodies and fitness levels, online, in studios and at large scale festivals and events:
- Fun fit cheesy aerobics classes with playlists that include 80s power ballards and hip-hop bangers
- Hip-hop aerobics
- Follow-along dance classes Zumba style, but more of a mixtape of music and dance genres (latin, hiphop, swing, rock n roll, contemporary dance)
- Team/company - building dance sessions to break up the day of online work.
Taught by Banana Jolie, Banana Boogie is a dance mixtape workshop that is an absolute THROW DOWN physically and comedically.
DJ BJ has compiled a playlist of favourite dance floor bangers (from hip hop to 80s power jazz to salsa to swing) and there is too much music for the amount of time the workshop takes, therefore, if participants don't like the song they can yell "Change it!"
Or she stops the song halfway through and aggressively changes style.
Banana Boogie promises to give folks a dance experience that makes them walk away with new moves in their toolkit and a bit more comfort and celebration of how they can dance. Known for iconic moves such as "follow your dreams", "titties in the wind", "salsa, avocado, hummus", and "take your fears and throw them into the sky", Banana Boogie has been presented at:
Happy Wanderer Festival (Vic, Australia)
NZ Spirit Festival (NZ)
