Day 3 ... here I go!

            

Dance Off the Inches: Fat Burning JamMy Walmart special ... got it for under $10! Another workout from the Dance off the Inches series, this one is led by Michelle Dozois, who has appeared in quite a few workout videos over the years. She is joined by 4 other ladies, including Marie Forleo who has led Crunch Cardio Dance Blast and Prevention's Dance Yourself Thin. They are all in a cozy living room setting ready to groove.

One feature of this DVD is a step guide, which demonstrates many of the moves that make up the foundation of the workout. I love to have this little tutorial when I need it. Michelle will show you the move, slow at first then at tempo, plus she will show any additional variations that might be seen in the workout, any arm movements that go with it for example.

You start with a fun warm up and move into the first of three dance routines called Shake Those Hips. Some of the steps seen here include single and double hip shakes, side taps, grapevines and circle walks. Then you will move into the next dance routine, Latin Spice. Here you will see the Spicy March, the slide, cross & bounce, mambo, cha chas (with a turn added), kickball change and shoulder shimmeys.

The final dance segment is Jazz it Up. This routine includes chasses, drags, narrow/wide march (out out in in), quick lunges, tap front/back, box step, side taps, double taps and hops. Then it's time to cooldown.

Overall ... I give this 4 stars.
