Dance, Fitness, Culture

Welcome to 2016. The year where we rise up like champions!

I am excited to see what is in store for us all. But first, let me highlight a few magical moments in 2015 as it truly was a year of growth, connections, and awareness. The pillars of Simply Shakera Inc., Dance, Fitness, and Culture have been used to share these moments


My love, my outlet and the driving force behind Simply Shakera Inc.
“…stand for a moment with your eyes closed. Feel the connection of your feet to the floor and just relax. If you feel completely at a loss for what to do, imagine your breath supplying your entire body with a golden fluid, making your body light and flexible. Allow this to transition into any movements you wish, moving as the body dictates. Flow, float, stomp, jump up and down.” - Unknown

I am grateful to have danced all the way through 2015 with so many talented people creating everlasting memories for my clients. Make sure to get your dance on today!

Favourite Dance Moment

Simply Shakera Flash Mobs helped almost a dozen men pop the question this year to their special ladies. My fave dance moment for #2015 would have to be our performance for the "A Wedding to Remember" segment on The Marilyn Denis Show on CTV

My personal fitness journey is ever-growing and I am grateful to all my clients/students who have allowed me to be a part of theirs. I cannot wait to sweat with you and look forward to introducing 3 NEW workouts in 2016!

Fundraisers, Fitness Center Sessions, Television, Bachelorettes, International, Conferences... So Grateful For This Journey!

Favourite Fitness Moment

It was hard to select just one favourite but organic vibin' moments like the video clip below gets me every time! Everyone being free and feeling the rhythm... shout out to “Di Humber Crew”.



By definition, it is “a way of life of a group of people--the behaviors, beliefs, values, and symbols that they accept, generally without thinking about them, and that are passed along by communication and imitation from one generation to the next.

My Caribbean culture has helped define who I am hence why it is a major component of Simply Shakera Inc.

2015 allowed ample opportunities for my company Carnival Spice and Everything Nice to showcase and celebrate Caribbean mas, music, and movement. My hope is that drastic changes are made to CARIBANA so it truly reflects the amazing Caribbean culture while allowing the Caribbean community to thrive. 

Favourite Culture Moment


Appearing LIVE in a segment on CityLine Canada with the Toronto Revellers. The energy, the culture, the reach to a broader audience – it was a wonderful day. Huge shout out to my dancin’ partner Mr. Meggy. Tracy Moore, I am glad you are one of “our people”. <3
