Full Backcover Description
Aerobic choreography remixed through dance … and probably the most extreme dance workout ever! Fun and fast-paced, this workout shows you just how easy it is to add jazz, hip/hop, Latin and of course, “The Laker Girls”, to any cardio workout. First, each move is taught slowly to the beat of hot, club music. Then Patrick picks up the tempo and ... look out! Expect some drama! Once your body settles and the magical performance is revealed at the end, something becomes clear — the beauty of dance!

Certified instructor description:
Creative, fun and very high energy — Patrick's enthusiasm is contagious. Taught add-on-style, the complexity and excitement just keeps building (until, by the end, you're doing sequences worthy of a professional dance team). The moves range from “pops” and “turnaround” to “Laker Girl” and “Tribal Dance.” Every possible technique is used to make it do-able. He previews each eight-count combo, then teaches it at half-tempo, demos it a couple more times and finally brings it up to full speed (and it never slows down again ...). He also has occasional picture-in-picture graphics to show the moves from both sides, and even includes a segment that lets you practice at a slower pace. Not recommended for carpet. ©2005.
