Gentle dance fitness to keep you fit and flexible.  Move and groove to rhythms from the South Pacific, Latin America, and the Caribbean.  A vacation between vacations.

At Kiwa Dance Fitness we believe in gentleness, respect, and aloha.   Gentle movement to keep us fit and flexible, respect for our bodies and our ohana, and synchronization of mind and body (aloha).  It is my mission to offer dance fitness classes that are gentle, fun, easy, and safe. It’s gentle on your body but still a good workout. It’s fun so you will feel good.  It’s easy so you will feel successful.  It’s safe so you will feel free to move. 

Island Style

Kiwa Dance Fitness is island born and embodies island life – it’s about being active but at a slower pace with simpler moves.  Kiwa exemplifies the island state of mind as one of a welcoming community with a sense of togetherness. We are ohana, a chosen family finding unity and harmony together in dance fitness. Throughout this site I will share with you indigenous words which capture and express the Kiwa state of mind.

It’s not about an ability to dance, it’s about a willingness to move. I don’t care how you move, I care how you feel when you move. Why you need dance fitness.

Dress for comfort, not fashion. Move freely, at your own pace. Be funky, be off beat, be you. 

Take a time out. Inhale, exhale. Move. Balance. Revive your you. Join me for an affordable group fitness option in Parksville, BC. Schedule and rates.

Fitness should…

Provide opportunities to connect with your community…Contribute to overall wellness, self-esteem, and independence…Motivate you to do more with your body…Be accessible and affordable for everyone…Allow you to be imperfect since there is no “right way” to exercise…Be about being healthy, not losing weight…
