In addition to all of this, these seriously busy ladies created
TruEssencia Dance and Wellness, LLC, in conjunction with four other b-girls.
TruEssenia creates educational workshops through Hip Hop for Health.

I know from experience what one of Wandee's workout programs can do for a body & fast. I hired her to get me in shape before my birthday a few years back. I waited until the last minute(roughly 3 months before the date) and she showed up at my house two days a week, rain or shine and whipped me into shape in no time. Sometimes with breakfast in tow and always had a cute little quote to throw at me when ever I wavered. I still do some of the things I've learned from her and feel the burn every time.

You can find information about TruEssencia, more about Wandee and Deena's
person training sessions and dance classes, as well as testimonials about their work over at:

In addition to all this, at the beginning of next month these
beautiful, talented and no doubt, exhausted ladies are teaching a
Guest Workshop @ on

Saturday, August 1st @ 1:30pm to 3pm

Grab your sweats, your girls and on over to one of there classes.
