Claudette M.: “I remember walking into my first Dancehall reggae class with Hanna. I was nervous, shy, and most importantly lost! However, Hanna came in with a huge smile, dimmed the lights, and was extremely patient with us newbies. She took the time to break down every dance step and made us feel more comfortable with moving our body. She incorporates whining, stretching and choreography into a 1 hr workout which makes the class fun and interactive. To watch Hanna dance and create choreography off the top of her head is amazing. The way she moves so effortlessly to music its obvious that she has spent a great deal of time learning her craft. Hanna is a masterful teacher and a wonderful facilitator. Her ability as an instructor extends beyond dance. My confidence in Dancehall has since improved and it’s all because of her. I’m officially addicted to her class and a bonafide FAN! Love love love her!!!”

Jennifer P.: “Hanna Herbertson love and passion for dancing and reggae makes Dancehall class not only a great workout but an awesome environment. Hanna does an amazing job getting the class warmed up. Hanna also comes up with great dance routines that not only is fun to dance to but a total body workout in itself. I am quite sure if you came to her class you would be addicted by the end. This class is for all levels and for hour long. Hanna is at the YMCA in Bedstuy on Mondays and Thursdays. I never miss a class!”

Denise B.: “I am A Hanna groupie!!! She makes trying to get back into shape fun…If i could take a Dancehall Fusion class every morning to kick start my day I would be a happy camper. I grew up on Dancehall, and was even in a little dance group in high school back home in Jamaica, I miss those days. Now that “Dancehall nice again”..  Its fun to see the incorporation if aerobics, stretches, and even yoga in Dancehall moves… Hanna ties this all together in a nice little package….I was shocked when she told us to pull out our mats the other night  and had us do a series of wining and stretching..So much fun! Love Her !!!”

Delphine C.: “Hanna’s workshops are great. She is a teacher with great patience who will take the time make you understand the steps but also the attitude of Dancehall. Overall this workshop is perfect for beginners up for some wining and is also a super cool work out. Burning thighs for 2 days guaranteed !!!”.

Gisela McDonald: “Hanna Herbertson is a phenomenal teacher. As a beginner student, she always made me feel very comfortable and her great energy made the classes so much fun. Thank you so much Hanna for being so patient with me and always taking the time to show me the steps to your choreography.
Hanna is a true master at her craft!! When you take a reggae Dancehall class with Hanna,
not only will you enjoy yourself but you will get an awesome workout as well.”

Sofia G: “Hanna is one of the most charismatic dancers I have ever seen.
It is wonderful to witness her come up with choreography on the spot.
I love her class because she challenges me to push myself as a dancer, to attempt new styles and techniques,
no matter how intimidating it might seem at first.
She makes you feel comfortable while paying attention to your progress and is always ready to give you some
pointers as well as compliments too keep you motivated.
Overall, it is a wonderful experience that will leave you energized and thirsty for more.”

Sheree R: “Dancehall Fusion sell off!!!!!!!! Hanna is amazing and she takes the time to break the moves down if you’re not quite getting it. It’s a fun time, good people and good atmosphere.
Everyone is super friendly and it’s become like family.
Definitely check it out, you won’t be disappointed. Dancehall Fusion to di werl.”
