A high intensity cardiovascular workout utilizing African dance movements from various cultures with a small upper body strengthening segment at the end. The music which fuels the dance is a mixture of African and Caribbean rhythms and melodies. You may find it more comfortable working barefoot only if you are accustomed to taking class that way. However, wearing good, supportive sneakers will aid in supporting all lower body joints. Try wearing your lappa, kanga or sarong to get into the style. Drink water throughout the workout and if movements feel uncomfortable, feel free to modify them. Make sure to control your motion and you'll feel the intensity. Warm Up: 7 minutes, Aerobics: 40 minutes, Cool Down: 3 minutes and Upper Body: 5 minutes.
