An integral part of the SocaMotion model is creating classes that change with the season. It is a concept, created by Onya West, to incorporate different disciplines as well as fight boredom and the plateau effect. Soca music has so many different flavors that overlap with several musical genres and the people of the Caribbean reflect the entire ethnic spectrum and training. SocaMotion embraces all of this within its business model.
The classes from the previous two seasons adapted to the activity levels and changes in metabolism for the season. Here is the lineup for the Summer 2010 Wave and Fall 2010 Wave.
