Certified instructor description:
A well-taught dance workout featuring three dance sections: hip hop, Bollywood and country line dance. Billy Junior is the son of Tae Bo founder, Billy Blanks. But this is nothing like kickboxing. Instead, you get Tae Bo-style energy and motivation in a completely different workout format (this Billy can definitely dance!). You'll begin each segment by learning the moves at a slower pace. Then it's “play time” — having fun, burning calories and grooving to the music. Between each segment are two-minute “cardio bursts” — high-impact athletic moves like jumping jacks (the dance sections are nearly all low-impact). ©2010.
