Certified instructor description:
A motivating mix of power and grace that weaves step classics into innovative combinations (Amy Bento calls it “athletic-style choreography with a twist”). For nearly an hour, you'll be flying over, across and around your bench. Teaching add-on style — but never slowing down — Amy smoothly escalates the intricacy (e.g. a series that starts simple will end with a flurry of turns, twists, jumps and fly-aways). The movement variety is endless — grapevines and box steps, straddles and pendulums, plyo-lunges and hip hop repeaters. Throughout, Amy's energy and enthusiasm is always super-motivating (“you may not get every move, but you will sweat”). DVD has a short tutorial of the more challenging steps. ©2007.
