Here's Your Afrobeats Dance Workout Playlist

Courtesy of Izzy Odigie.

Izzy Odigie is one the best Afro-fusion dancers and choreographers doing it right now.

Having grown up in Nigeria and later moved to the States, Izzy's dance style sits at the perfect intersection of afrobeats, hip-hop and pop moves.

Izzy got her first major break on the Afro-dance scene with her striking on-stage freestyle alongside Eddy Kenzo and, since then, she's racked up millions of views on Youtube for her choreography and dance freestyles to all the major afrobeats hits.

Izzy will be hosting a free Afrobeats Dance Workout session, presented by OkayAfrica and Samsung, in celebration of National Dance Day tomorrow July 25 in New York City. Make sure you RSVP here.

Ahead of that class we asked her to round up some of her go-to Afrobeats Dance Workout jams. She describes this as "a groove playlist of south, east, and west African bangers that will have you up & dancing no matter where you're from."
