It’s powerful, it’s passionate and it completely takes me over. The energy is completely addictive and I don’t know how I ever lived without it.

The class started with some basic reggae beats, and to my surprise, even though I had absolutely no experience, it didn’t actually take that long to get the hang of it. Eight months later I have learned many other beats and breaks and I’m still loving it. I am now with the TDot Batu performance group and let me tell you, the sound and energy that is created when the whole group comes together is freaking unbelievable!!
