shake it up. shake it out. shake it off.

Founded in 2012 by dancer and chore­o­g­ra­pher Namaala Lieben­thal, Zoca® is a unique new take on dance fitness that has quickly taken South­ern Africa by storm. Inspired by the colour­ful car­ni­vals of the Caribbean and the new boom in African pop music, Zoca brings together these two rich cul­tures to cre­ate a highly eective and exhil­a­rat­ing work­out aimed at not only improv­ing strength, mus­cle tone and endurance but confi­dence and body image as well. Zoca goes beyond other forms of dance fitness by set­ting a com­bi­na­tion of chal­leng­ing and fun chore­og­ra­phy to music that trav­els from the streets of Trinidad & Tobago to the night­clubs of Zam­bia.


The mantra sums Zoca up in three sim­ple phrases: “Shake it up, shake it out, and shake it o
,” which is to say, “dare to do some­thing dif­fer­ent today, shake the stress and ten­sion out through a high-​energy class, and ulti­mately shake it [the weight] o.” Unlike any other fitness class, Zoca instruc­tors traipse through local night­clubs and street per­for­mances for their inspi­ra­tion bring­ing together a truly diverse mix of sounds and styles. Thanks to an ever-​evolving stream of fresh music and moves, class-​goers or Zocan­ista™ as they’ve come to be known, leave every class feel­ing lib­er­ated, reju­ve­nated and eager for more.
