BEAUTY QUEEN SECRETS: (PART 2) HOW MISS BLACK GEORGIA STAYS FIT & FAB!

NAKEIA STALEY SHARES HER SECRET TO STAYING FIT, HEALTHY, AND BEAUTIFUL Dancing is my secret. It has always been an outlet for me to express myself and now it is my way of staying fit. My favorite classes are Dance Fitness and Center Court Jazz. The best part is that I get to incorporate my love of dance with fitness.
