Pump It!

This is a Warmup pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 16408)

I used this warm-up to sub a "Butts and Guts" class last week. It is choreographed to the song "Pump It" by the Black Eyed Peas. The next week, I had new faces in my regular class because they had so much fun. This warm-up works because it is fun, outside the box, and totally unexpected. You'll have them begging for more when you show them what a blast you are! The trick is to DANCE every single one of these steps with a hip-hop feel. Don't march straight and tall. Bend low and pop your knees into your chest. Add subtle shoulder and hip action that makes in more like being in a video than in a (insert format here) class. Play with it, practice it, be comfortable so that they will be comfortable. That's the trick! Have a GREAT time!

Intro:

Verse 1:

Chorus:

Verse 2:

Chorus:

Verse 3:

Chorus:

You ought to be having a blast by now and they should be laughing and loving it too! 32 counts, shake that money maker And end with a strong pose on that final note!

Remember the warm up is where you make your strong impression. Here you have a song that is hard not to be energized by, so play around with it and get your class grooving before they move on to other things. Good luck and let me know how it goes!!
