I am so proud that you have chosen me as your teacher and design your healthiest body. I have dedicated over a decade to creating the tools, movements and prescriptions to keep your muscles awake and alert and be able to give you the body you desire. No one in fitness has ever created the collections of content that the Tracy Anderson Method delivers to you. With this program, your results will never plateau or fail you like any fitness programs you may have tried in the past.
This DVD is the cardio component of your workout and is designed to build up your stamina, keep your energy up, and help make your workout fun while you are learning these basic dances. This DVD is a great introduction to learning dance aerobics and mimicking my dance moves as you gain strength and build up your stamina. Cardio is just as an important component as your muscular structure work and my dance DVDs should be used in conjunction with either the Mat DVD or the Perfect Design Series depending on your ability. The goal of these Dance DVDs is to excel your ability enough so that you are able to reach the level of Metamorphosis, which is customized by body type and gives you the most personalized workout available. – Love, Tracy

Certified instructor description:
A unique workout with a great soundtrack ... but absolutely no verbal cuing. Instead, you'll learn the moves in the 46-minute tutorial. Then you'll just follow Tracy as she blasts through a fast-paced series of traditional, jazz and hip hop combos. Probably not for dance newbies, but it <em>is</em> doable. Tracy's classical dance training is obvious. Her movements are precisely choreographed and very crisp — there's never any doubt where her feet are going (also, the DVD shows two versions of the workout: one filmed from the front, one filmed from the back). So what's the benefit of no cuing? You have total freedom to move with the music. Sure, follow Tracy if you like. Or just catch the rhythm and groove to your own personal dance routine. ©2008.
