Certified instructor description:
A graceful, elegant program with two different workout techniques. The first section is a fluid series of lower-body, dancer-style exercises. Mostly beginner-level, these playful movements include a variety of not-too-serious hip rolls, forward folds, head sways and bellydance moves. The second section is faster paced with more traditional, fitness-style exercises (also lower-body focused). They range from cha chas and grand pliés, to classic side steps and back lunges. Both segments are taught in linked, add-on style sequences (like a real modern dance progression). Excellent photography. ©2008.
