Certified instructor description:
A high-energy fat-burner led by an enthusiastic instructor. It's upbeat and fun with lots of variety — the steps range from traditional aerobic favorites to moderately challenging Latin dance. Susan Tuttle keeps you motivated with a passionate personality and limited instruction (she simply cues the move and the direction — you get to focus on the music and the motion). The first section is slightly less dancy and a little faster paced. The second lowers the tempo — but boosts the complexity — with more challenging steps like “salsa circle” “rhumba box” and “the bachata” (this segment ends with a near-toning series of knee lifts, squats and lunges). Lively, authentic Latin vocal soundtrack. ©2011.
