Up Up Down Down, Basic Step then Turn Around


I think that Step Aerobics are our generation’s version of Square Dancing. Sometimes I feel like a Square Dance Caller! That was our running joke through class this past Monday. All I’m missing is “Bow to Your Partner.” Maybe I’ll work that in next week. 🙂

Here’s this week’s Step Choreography. We had a lot of fun with it, especially all the “down down up ups.” I threw in a funky kick move on top of the bench in Combo 2. If you’re not a fan of flair, then 2 marches can be substituted nicely. This is probably how you will layer anyway.

I also found several “Top 40 DJ Mixes” on Napster that we got to jam out to. I am a huge fan of Lady GaGa — she’s been played lots on the radio, but I haven’t gotten tired of her yet! She’s on Volume 10 of My Fitness Mixes Top 40 DJ Mix. It’s 30 minutes long, so I threw Volume 9 in there too. You guys are going to have a blast! JUST DANCE!

Here are the links and then the moves:
