There are only hurdles, no road blocks!
As a traditional African dancer, Akosua Akoto made her first appearance on the stage at age three. Since age 13, she has been organizing and teaching adult and children’s workshops throughout her community. She has also served as lead and assistant choreographer for numerous dance organizations. Today, she maintains an active involvement in community projects and continues to perform and teach dance nationally and internationally. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Sports Medicine from Howard University and is a nationally certified personal trainer through the American Council of Exercise (ACE). She is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Human Performance, Rehabilitation and Injury Prevention from California University of Pennsylvania- a program that will also award her the title Performance Enhancement Specialist by the National Academy of Sports Medicine. She currently works as a personal trainer, group exercise instructor and physical therapy technician. Several world renowned choreographers and health specialists who have served as her mentors and trainers, along with family, have given her the tools to see and create movement from a cultural, artistic and scientific perspective; and so she proudly presents - ASA!
Fun Fact? hmmmm....I have 10 siblings.

    I was not a part of the movement a year ago but I'm so glad I did not mis the boat - Akosua Akoto is the best at the best and she continues to push and challenge you.

    Taking Kos's ASA! class last year, I have never sweat that much in my life. She makes her classes exciting and challenging. You have to give yourself a pat on the back after surviving her and the ASA! teachers. #toneup
