What is a Joie women's circle entail? When you book a women's circle with Shatoyia, you will receive a transformative, energizing and healing experience --physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally-- nurturing your whole essence as a woman--mind, body, spirit--, leaving you feeling seen, confident and most importantly, valued by what you bring to the table by the sheer fact that you are a woman. 👑
More Than Just Dance.
Our classes are more than just about dance. Joie by Shatoyia female and women empowerment circles were created for women, young and seasoned, to grow their confidence, self-esteem and build grace and poise that will transcend beyond the circle and into every area of their lives from personal to professional to financial and spiritual. The women in our circles become leaders and have the chance to gain access to a variety of mentor-ship opportunities, as well as scholarship and grant opportunities for a business idea or to further their education.
You will find a community that fosters self-expression, as well as physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing--through the love of dance and movement. AND OF COURSE, we are going to have a **** ton of fun while we do so!

As Chair of Harvard Undergraduate Women in Business' Diversity Committee, I discovered the incredible work you've been doing with First Ladies of Poverty Foundation when you spoke during the Diversity Committee's WE Speak series. You really do have an impressive track record of impact, Shatoyia!
I was impacted most by the work your foundation does in encouraging entrepreneurship - Audrey Dilgarde, Chair of HWIB Diversity Committee
Shatoyia has certainly been more than a mentor to me. She is 110% always there whenever you need an advice, feedback, someone to talk to you. She seems to see what you are not able to see, the good in you, your potential. I dont think I have ever had a talk with her when I dont feel better after. The most important thing that she has taught is to believe in myself. I am thankful I discovered FLP and I got the chance to meet such a thoughtful and impactful leader. The most wonderful thing about Shatoyia is that she sincerely wants to see your growth, both personally and professional. I believe is hard with any mentor you have. She also understand life happens and something you cant give your best, she is flexible and patient and always willing to lend a hand. Thank you... for the time, the opportunity and the chance. Thank you for your constant support and for wanting my growth and success. - Maria Lopez, Spanish Conversation partner at First Ladies of Poverty Foundation
