Shaka Lee is a Toronto based dancer, instructor and choreographer. She was a natural mover since childhood but didn’t start training in dance until she was an adult. From go-go dancing in Toronto clubs to training in heels and jazz-funk with the finest teachers in Toronto, New York and LA, Shaka has become a highly reputable instructor in North America!
She is a BodyRock Instructor and a Titika Ambassador. She has taught workshops for RFX Collective, CirQular Motion and Easy Period. You can also find her performing all over the city (pre-covid) with the many entertainment companies that she is a part of.
“Dancing has been a passion of mine ever since I was a little kid, but I never had the chance to have professional training as a child. Finding heels in my twenties seriously changed my life. I love the way I get to express myself through this style. It is all things feminine; it can be soft and sweet, at other times playful and coy, it can be abstract, fierce, commanding and above all, sensual. It has become my workout, my outlet, my creativity, my therapy. If I can get one woman to access any of those sides of her and feel more confident in herself, then I have done my job.”
