Akinya Joy

Spreading JoY thru dance & fitness!


Zumba with Akinya is a high-energy, calorie-burning, muscle-toning, Latin-inspired dance fitness party that gives you a full-body workout!


My passion for fitness began around age 15-16 when I earned my first-degree black belt and became an Assistant Martial Arts Instructor. It gave me an opportunity to combine my love for sports and fitness with my passion for helping others realize their fitness goals.


In the years that followed, I participated in cross country, track and field, and step posse, and instructed hip hop and lyrical dance. I’ve now combined my zeal and training into Zumba with Akinya.


Two left feet? Two right feet? No problem. Customized movements are provided; and if you miss a step, just keep moving to the rhythm of your own drum.


At Zumba with Akinya, we smile. We laugh. We clap. We jam to some of the best hits from around the world.


Thanks for visiting! I look forward to meeting you. :)
