In 2019, Jamie began to expand her brand and has begun creating her own choreo for her dance fitness brand known as Village Vibes. In addition to the creation of Village Vibes, Jamie is creating a fitness format for seniors and those with mobility limitations. This is a passion for Jamie as well because as a certified health and empowerment coach
and someone with autoimmune diseases, Jamie is aware that a Village includes everyone, from the young to the old and those who move differently than others. Sit, Fit and Lit is a fun and functional format that provides a fun way to sit and dance while focusing on functional movement and strength training using resistance bands.
Jamie believes that health is more than just working out and that fitness is just a one component of health. Village Fitness is about advocating and providing resources for you to learn more about eating healthy food, having a healthy body and living a healthy lifestyle. In order to support The Village in their efforts to
obtain those goals, Jamie Nicole runs an online group, Village Fitness in Motion, to provide support, resources and motivation to those seeking to improve their health and wellness with the support of like-minded individuals on the same journey to a better version of themselves.

Samantha Jimenez began dancing in front of an audience at the age of 5. Whether it was a “show” for family, or a performance in front of a crowd, she always found the stage. With Latin being her favorite style of dance, Samantha joined a Latin dance group at the age of 8. While dance was always her passion, she still took the time to participate in other sports throughout her school years.
In college Samantha was VP of a hip-hop dance organization on campus named Harambee. This group would perform campus wide, and travel to other campuses as well. Samantha graduated from Texas State University in 2012 with a B.A in Mass Communications. Dance took a temporary pause until 2016 when she joined a Latin dance company specializing in samba. Later that year, she joined the company in competing in season 2 of NBC’s hit show “World of Dance.” Samantha now uses dance as a way to promote health and confidence by teaching dance fitness classes to any and every one! She is also a full-time mother of two children and kindergarten teacher.
