About Wukkout!®
Born from Guyanese roots, a passion for soca music, and a strong advocacy for health and wellness, Wukkout! is a Caribbean based dance fitness class that invites everyone regardless of experience and age to increase their fitness level, while sharing in the joy of carnival and vibrancy of Caribbean culture. In addition to fostering healthier communities through movement, Wukkout! was created to showcase how the euphoria and freedom of carnival bring people from all walks of life together. Currently, Wukkout! is being taught in Brooklyn and throughout NYC and hopes to expand.

Why We’re Raising Funds
We’ve been presented with the opportunity to “march” in this year’s West Indian American Day Parade happening in Brooklyn on Labor Day.  Over a million people will be in attendance and what better way to celebrate our hope for expansion than by bringing Wukkout! back to the place of its birth, Carnival!

Participating in this parade will allow us to share Wukkout! with an audience much larger than normal; it is incredible exposure.  Donations will help us cover the cost of renting sound equipment, hiring a truck and insurance fees for the day.

Currently the business is being financed by my personal funds so any assistance at all will be incredibly helpful in making this day happen.

**If you would like to dance in the parade with us and live in the NYC area or will be in town on Labor Day, a donation of $30 or more will get you a t-shirt and reserve your spot in our section however, any amount is truly appreciated.**

Please feel free to donate, share, stop by our website and check out a clip of our classes below:



Thank you for the support.  It is truly appreciated.

See you on the Parkway!
