Easy fitness dance choreography.
Nathan Brumley - What My Momma Knew

Take a break once in a while and move your body. At least one minute break every 30 minutes.

Usually my 55 minute fitness dance class has about 12 to 15 songs in it. The songs are arranged that way that the tempo and / or the heaviness of the movements gradually increase during the class. A quick drink after every third song if you want. The first song of the three song set is always physically somehow a bit easier than the two following it. Slower tempo, no jumps or choreography that may require a bit more thought which usually means that your heartbeat stays lower than in easier choreography or with jumps.

When dancing I recommend that you always do the movements according to your own body. If you do not want to or can't jump or do twists, don't do those. Do something else that does not risk you getting hurt. If there are steps or movements that you can't figure out how they are done, don't sweat about it. It's not important if you get the steps or the choreography right, what is important is that you're having fun and sweating because you move. If the steps are too easy for you, you can always invent and add your own moves or jump even if I don't.

Gradually I'll add one song at a time here and give them a number meaning in which order they are meant to be danced so that you get a full 60 minute fitness dance program, but of course ultimately it's totally up to you which ones you want to dance and in which order. I do recommend though that you always start with an easy, a bit slower song just to let your body warm up before leaps or any other quick moves.

This song is meant to be somewhere in the middle of the program. The first step (after the hip/wrist moves in the beginning) is kick ball tap. You kick with your right foot, put it down beside your left leg, change your weight to it and then tap with your left leg to the side. Then you continue with your left leg, one kick to the front, place it down beside the right one, shift your weight on your left leg and tap with your right foot to the side. And so on. When you are comfortable, move forward with 4 kick ball taps placing your foot after the kick a bit more forward than where your other leg is.

Remember, it's not about the correct dance moves. It's about moving your body, any way you feel comfortable, any way you understand the steps. And having fun!

Well so wonderful dance!
I am sending the link of your video to a friend of mine because he is trying his best to keep fit.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks you!

That's awesome! Dancing is the best way to stay fit (if you like dancing that is). I'll be adding choreographs here so that in the future there will be plenty to choose from and make a whole hour program of it. Or 15 to 20 minute dance breaks. Next song coming soon. :)
