Certified instructor description:
Six easy-to-follow dance combos led by a very high-energy instructor. This hip shakin' cardio party is sure to have you burning fat and having fun. Even the “rhythmically challenged” can do this workout — the steps are taught at half-tempo, linked together and finally blended into full sequence. The moves range from “body rolls” and “salt shakers” to “fast and funky” and sultry “dance diva” patterns (with a Latin flair). For added variety, each segment also has a complementary upper-body movement (e.g. “Popeye arms,” “Chiquita banana arms”). ©2005.
