Want to have a body like a dancer? You can.
You just need to learn how to dance!
But if that seems to be a huge task to accomplish, then we've got the fastest, easiest solution for you. Because with our modern dance workout dvd, you can learn to dance at home.
There's lots you can get out of this one lesson.
Firstly, you get to join in with a genuine beginner's class (most dance / workout DVDs will show you a bunch of super-fit experienced dancers doing the moves, but it's far more inspirational if you can learn with a group of genuine peers).
Secondly, because this is a genuine class, it shows you inside a real dance lesson. This way you get to see how a good dance teacher should teach her or his pupils.
If doing this DVD inspires you to sign up for classes at your local studio, you'll know some of the factors to look for - a warm, approachable teacher, steps broken down, explained clearly, with plenty of time to practice each one before moving on to the next, a fun, calm atmosphere where pupils don't compete with one another, no negative reinforcement, only positive feedback... you get the picture.
So if you go to a class that you're not comfortable in, you'll know that you don't have to just accept it as the way dance classes are taught. You can find a class that suits you - you'll know exactly what to look for.
And when you do sign up, you'll know a few moves that the other pupils don't - a great confidence lift.
Lastly, of course, you can use this class on its own, or if you do sign up for local lessons, use it as your practice session in between classes.
On the DVD/Download itself, you'll learn
individual routines that focus on different parts of the body (arms and upper body, then legs and feet). You'll then learn two full routines that incorporate an astonishingly wide variety
of steps, inspired by ballet, tango, ballroom, samba and more.
It all adds up to a great dance and a very thorough whole body workout.
So the class doesn't just teach you dance steps, it teaches you all about the process of learning to dance, and hopefully inspires a love of dance that'll last a lifetime.
Let extraordinary teacher Alexx Wood guide you on a journey into the world of dance whilst encouraging you to use your whole body and a full range of movements.
Watch her now as she teaches simple moves to her class of complete beginners…
"You're amazing. You make it so simple."
"Alexx is such a lovely teacher!"
"The Modern Dance Workout class is excellent - it's uplifting, it's energizing and it's sooo relaxing."
"This is amazing - it made me feel graceful!"
"Whoa, that's MUCH better than going to the gym! It's so interesting, you never get bored and it uses your whole body. Fabulous!"
"I always knew that dancing was good for you but I never learnt it when I was growing up so I didn't know what dance I'd be good at. Plus, the prices at my local center were quite a lot as they only run courses so you have to pay in advance. I got your DVD and now I know which bits I really enjoy. It was so easy to understand and no pressure because it was just me at home! And now I go to contemporary/modern classes because I loved the routine at the end of the DVD so much I wanted to do more!" Tiffany - New York
Am I going to lose weight doing this?
Anything that gets you up and out of your armchair, that raises your heartbeat even just a little, will burn more calories than doing nothing. And there some quite strenuous exercises in the class that will get your blood pumping, no doubt about it. Will you suddenly lose 5 pounds after doing the DVD once or twice? No. No class will do that, but you know that already. What modern dance will do is introduce you to working your whole body, deeply and thoroughly. Done regularly, it is one of the best all round exercises and you will lose weight by dancing often.
But, this class (in fact, most good quality dance classes) can make you LOOK as though you've instantly dropped a few pounds in a matter of minutes. How? By encouraging you to stand correctly. Good posture instantly makes you look a little taller and a little more trim. So there you go. That's dancing's secret weapon and will make you feel fabulous.
Isn't it better just to go to a real class?
Yes, in many ways it is. It's only in a class that a teacher can see you perform the moves and can therefore correct you if necessary. And can encourage you personally. But, not all teachers will bother to correct you and not all teachers will encourage you. In fact, in many classes, your teacher won't speak to you personally at all. You also run the huge risk of feeling embarrassed or even humiliated if you can't keep up with the class or worse, if the teacher singles you out for criticism (although, only poor teachers do this).
Doing this DVD class first will teach you all the basics so, if you do decide to join a local class, you'll get a great boost of confidence from knowing a few of the steps and positions. There's simply no replacement for confidence from knowledge and you'll get all that from this one DVD.
Is it full of fit, skinny people?
Nope, just the opposite. This class is a very accurate example of exactly who goes to a beginners dance class. There are some complete beginners in it - people who have never, ever been in a dance class before, not even as a kid. Then there are a couple of people who have been in classes when they were much younger and can vaguely remember a few steps. And there are a couple of people who are clearly quite fit. So there's a real spread of ability, along with a clear mixture of ages, weights, shapes and fitness levels.
This is exactly the mix you're likely to see an average beginner's dance class.
Do I need special shoes?
No, just a pair of socks on your feet are absolutely perfect for this, along with some comfortable workout wear, like jogging pants and a t-shirt.
