A fun workout with great hosts and music

Freddie and team were amazing! They sang us a lot of wonderful songs combined with traditional dancing. Afterwards we got to try out the drumming ourselves followed by a vigorous dance lesson. We had a lot of fun and we finished up with a SUPER delicious meal. The venue was great, and we even came back later during the month to enjoy movie night!
