Peace and Blessings,
Welcome too Cool Moms Dance Too! We are Quyionah “Cool Mom Qui” Wingfield and Serenity Marie, Founders of Cool Moms Dance Too!
We started Cool Moms Dance Too! out of need to stay connected after losing my life partner and the father to my two beautiful daughters January of 2013. The loss was the most difficult life experience we’d ever encountered however, community, communication and dance became the backbone of our strength to get through difficult times together.
We officially started Cool Moms Dance Too! while my girls were enrolled in dance class in Decatur, GA. I decided to join them in dancing at home to Beyonce’s “Schooling Life” and The Black Eyed Peas “Rock Your Body” a song dad, the girls and I danced to together in our family home. What happened that evening changed us forever. After we finished our fun dance session, my eldest daughter sat down on my bed and started talking about a bully she was dealing with at school and that it had been happening for well over a month. I was hurt that my little girl suffered through this for so long without any help but what I did recognize is she suddenly felt comfortable to talk after we finished dancing together.
We started to dance together regularly and I noticed a difference in my body, overall well-being as well as my relationship with my daughters. We had not properly grieved and dance became our therapy as we used it as our connector and commonality. I decided to turn lemons into lemonade and our lives and relationships have been enriched ever since.
We developed the AFAA/NASM approved dance format Cool Moms Dance Too! which is a fusion of family friendly hip-hop dance fitness routines and upbeat movement therapy activities including “mirroring” and “hype sessions.”
As of today we’ve worked with thousands of families via our formatted dance programs including our members participating in Atlanta Hawks game performance, opening for Kidz Bop, Georgia PTA conference and more.
Being on this journey with Serenity has been the most beautiful experience as we shift with the world and work to stay happy, healthy and whole at home.
The mission of Cool Moms Dance Too! is to help mothers and their children manage their mental and physical health using dance, games and guided journaling as a stress coping mechanism, self-expression outlet, mental and physical health alternative.
