Pop, lock and drop it at Kazaxe

April 6, 2016

The Hispanic Student Association (HSA) will hold a two-day event called Kazaxe, instructed by senior Sachio Vigil. Kazaxe by Azuka Boutcher, the creator of the high-intensity workout, is considered a “boot camp of dance fitness.”

“The HSA club decided that we wanted to hold an event similar to the style of Zumba classes,” Vigil said. “So, we decided that Kazaxe could be a great idea because not a lot of people have heard about it, and it would be a great way to have people experience it.”

The money received through the event will go towards a scholarship for one of the seniors in the Hispanic Student Association who are in need of financial support.

“This year our goal is to raise about $1500 for the scholarship,” club officer senior Renata Urbina De La Flor said. “Hopefully, we raise more, but the goal is to raise a significant amount.”  

The one-hour event will cost $5 on the first day, and then will be half off on the second day for those who attended the class the day before.

“We had to talk to the activities office in order to get it approved,” Vigil said. “That way we can sell tickets at the door.”

Other instructors include seniors Maui Holoul, Alpha Berhane, Omega Berhane, Victoria Pazmino and Elizabeth Rivera. These students choreographed  their own dances and moves and chose their own music as well.

“I listened to the beat of the music, and I tried to makes moves to correspond with it,” senior Maui Holoul said. “I am working alongside Elizabeth Rivera, and I’m so excited to get the chance to instruct.”

This event will be held April 7-8 after school from 3-4pm.

“Be sure to wear comfortable clothing that’s both fun and appropriate to wear for any workout,” Vigil said. “You will definitely get a hard workout but it’s a great way to exercise and stay fit while also having a great time.”
