Because exercising can be so boring, professional chorographer/dancer Andrea Lin has combined the latest music, the latest styles, and the latest moves into several dynamite “Dance a Go Go” routines! Andrea wants to make sure her routines are entertaining so women will be motivated to keep practicing.
She explained, “There are so many amazing dance productions on television but when it comes to instructional fitness confidence, poise and sex appeal. The dance routines and DVD incorporate hip-hop, ballroom, salsa and cutting edge Asian moves.
Andria explained, “When I teach these classes, I always try to make my material more accessible to regular women, meaning non-dancers. After my classes, the students review the dances on the DVD after they go home.”
When I started “Dance a Go Go”, I immediately loved the upbeat music and professional
dance routines. It entices people to want to dance! Usually classes and DVD’s, the visual
perspective is not as interesting.
I challenged myself to provide the “experience” to instructional routines purely
about dancing, about you moving around and having fun. I totally went out of my way to make something as unique and good as possible. Everything is based on aerobics; the first set is a whole body exercise.
There is a rhythm, a pace throughout the choreography, to create a natural warmup
with natural movement, natural thighs, natural lows, and natural cool downs.
Everybody has their own personal style. The styling is what determines how you interpret
your movements and how you feel. I totally encourage every person to create their own
Some of these fundamentals influence us and are used as a guide to develop their own style and get into the dances. Be comfortable with your own body while learning the fundamentals and principles of dancing.
These routines are specially formulated to train anyone of any experience level to hold their own on the dance floor. Dancing can be good for your Health we participating in the traditional fitness tapes, 1-2-3 kick, in a repetitive fashion, but Andrea’s routines are so much more involved.
They don’t look like exercises because you are suddenly part of the excitement, dancing with her troupe. Her seven- minute sets truly are workouts. The five sets of dancing are
so entertaining, the CD is very 1812 Santa Paula Drive, Las Vegas, Nevada 89104
