This is a complete aerobic (hi-lo) workout. Hope you enjoy it.

It is always the music which inspires me to move my feet and come up with a good choreo. (Some examples: Vengaboys, Ricky Martin, Mark Anthony, Gloria Gaynor, Shaft -Sway (mucho mambo), Scatman and of course Miserlou!)

I have kept the choreography symmetrical so the instructors should have no problem teaching boths sides alternatively. I don't like when some try to teach you three to four moves and then repeat the whole process the other side. Gets to be boring!

Any problem trying to decipher the choreo you may email me.
