Basic: The easiest to follow. It ranges from simple walking-style marches to sports and athletic movements.

Certified instructor description:
A playful Latin dance workout that's taught with an easy-to-learn, not-too-serious attitude. You'll be having fun and burning fat with varied dances like Cha Cha, Cumbia, Salsa and Merengue. Susan's cuing makes them totally doable. She begins each set with a short "practice" series — just a few steps to give you a feel for the music. Then she adds on the arms and smoothly develops a full combination (which she later alternates with combos you're learned previously). Her cuing is light-hearted and cheerful — she keeps the other exercisers motivated and having fun. The first program is a little easier; the second includes a few ab-toning elements (e.g. side-to-side twists, double knee lifts). Upbeat Latin vocal music. ©2010.
