BOKWA Fitness is energetic, exciting, exuberant and exhilarating and consistently remains challenging, however is tailored for every type of individual to guide and assist with weight loss. BOKWA Fitness cardio helps reduces the risk of coronary heart disease and is the only program today that is taught with American Hand Sign Language and BOKWA Hand Signs for every participant including the hearing impaired.
BOKWA is a very unique dance fitness program due to the use of letters and numbers as placement combined with use of hand signals and American Sign Language. It is refreshing and builds strength and endurance driven by the pulsating rhythmic beats of African, Latin, Popular dance and House music. Bokwa is an innovative dance fitness program that is an abundance of fun and does NOT feel like a workout!!!!
