The Launch of Reggaecise® – the ‘Original Jamaican Caribbean Workout’ – to Jamaica

The launch of Reggaecise® – the ‘Original Jamaican Caribbean Workout’ – to Jamaica will take place on Friday, April 5, 2019 and Saturday, April 6, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at KGN 10 Sports Bar & Grill, 1A Hillview Avenue, Kingston 10.
Tickets are J$500 at the door.
Reggaecise® is a high-impact aerobic workout experience, which combines Reggae music, exercise and the carefree attitude of the Caribbean.  It promises to have anyone who participates in it moving, grooving, sweating and having fun, while burning calories and reducing stress.
Reggaecise® will be presented by Jamaica’s own David Smith, who created Reggaecise® in 1992; and being dissatisfied with the lack of variation and culture in music and dance at the time, wanted to expose unique aspects of Jamaican and Caribbean performing arts to his new home.
Now living in Canada, David works as a fitness instructor at one of Canada’s largest health clubs, teaching Reggaecise® to members, who fill his classes to participate in the group dance fitness specialty class.
In the 70’s David Smith created an unique style of dance by blending martial arts with dance choreography, and co-founded the renown Jamaican dance troupe, L.T.D., which, in an article chronicling Jamaica street dance history, credited with being one of the innovative dance troupes responsible for defining Jamaican dancehall culture.
The two Reggaecise® events will be followed by Reggaecise® Instructor Training in July.  Just as the innovative styling of David Smith and his dance troupe, L.T.D., shaped Jamaican dance culture, we are calling on Jamaica’s fitness and dance enthusiasts to make Reggaecise® the anthem of fitness in Jamaica, and showcase to a wider audience an unique Jamaican Caribbean workout experience.
We look forward to seeing you at KGN 10 Sports Bar & Grill in Jamaica in April!



Whether you enjoy a good workout, dancing, or listening to reggae music, you’ll want to make sure you come out to our Reggaecise® Concert on Saturday, November 10, 2018.  If you haven’t tried  Reggaecise® yet, here’s a chance to experience “The Original Jamaican Caribbean Workout”, that is based on reggae music and the carefree attitude of the Caribbean.

The concert event is a fun-filled 3 hours, with the featured Masterclass from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.  There will also be guest appearances by Toronto reggae artists, who will entertain participants with special live performances.  So as one can see, this is not just a regular dance fitness workout class.

Mark the date on your calendars – Saturday, November 10, 2018 –  Reggaecise® Concert at the Mind Body Soul Studios, 4500 Sheppard Ave. East #36, Scarborough, ON, Canada.

Your Journey to Becoming a Fitness Professional Begins Today!

If you love to dance, love reggae music, and believe that fitness is important, then becoming a Reggaecise® dance fitness instructor could be a natural choice. While dance experience or musicality in dance is important, perfect dance technique is not as important as it often is for other dance jobs.

As a Reggaecise® dance fitness instructor, you’ll love the more informal environment that is lots of fun but still gets in a good sweat. Health and fitness clubs are also realizing that offering dance is a great alternative.  Reggaecise® is trying to keep up with requests for Reggaecise® classes, but we need you to help fill these positions.

If you have an outgoing personality, and love to motivate and inspire others to stay / get fit with dance, register today for Reggaecise® training, and begin your journey to becoming a fitness professional.
