Certified instructor description:
A solid fat-burner powered by Julianne Hough's contagious energy and proven “Dancing with the Stars” teaching expertise. She makes it easy to learn the moves, have fun and shape up. Julianne begins each dance with the basic patterns plus some “filler” steps (to help with the transitions). Then, she slowly drops the fillers and guides you into full-fledged dance sequences. You get three distinct dance styles: Sexy cha chas with lots of hip and waist moves. Fast-paced Jive that really gets your heart rate up. And Paso Doble that focuses on strength, control and power. The DVD also includes a well-taught, 11-minute dance tutorial. ©2009.
