Fitness experts Jill Ross and Lindsey Emery give you the low down on popular exercise dance DVDs. If you want to get in shape, you might want to hit the dance floor and get moving. It’s the latest fad in exercise DVDs. These DVDs feature swing, jive, cha-cha, samba, hip-hop and other dance moves, capitalizing on the popularity of shows like ABC’s Dancing With the Stars and Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance.
Besides providing a good cardio workout, dance exercise DVDs also could help men and women feel more comfortable dancing at a club or an event such as a wedding, Emery says.
Workouts don’t require a dance partner, but you need some coordination and concentration. Most of the workouts are good exercise and are not too difficult. Best of all, it doesn’t feel like working out.
