Certified instructor description:
Taught by an authentic ballroom dance professional, you get moves derived from Cha Cha, Samba and Jive. It's a great way to burn fat as you practice a variety of fun, flirty steps you can take to the nightclub floor. Each dance style is taught in a separate segment. Within each segment, you also get a lively mix of movement variations (e.g. the Cha Cha “triple step” has a completely different pattern than the usual Cha Cha). Kristina Milova's upbeat attitude and easy-to-follow cuing is exceptionally motivating. Lots of foot-movin' music with a solid beat. DVD includes an 18-minute dance step tutorial. ©2008.
