D018 Modern Dance Lessons DVD - Modern Dancing Instruction. 2 DISC SET - Level 1 and Level 2 - over 3 hours in length. Body Motion is a full body workout that uses Modern Dance techniques to sculpt, shape and tone your entire body. Taught by professional dancer and experienced teacher, Katharina Worthington, each class is designed to challenge you with Lester Horton dance technique. As your body becomes stronger you will notice a change in your muscle tone, your sense of balance, your physical endurance, your energy level, your coordination and your everyday posture. This multi-level series is appropriate for both newcomers to the dance as well as seasoned dancers. The moves in each exercise are carefully demonstrated and broken down for the beginner dancer while the progressive difficulty of Level 2 is designed with the more advanced dancer in mind. Both DVDs contain an Extended Practice Session that allows you to bypass the explanations for a non-stop workout. LEVEL 1 - introduces you to basic foundational movements that focus on contracting the abs and developing strength and control. LEVEL 2 - is for experienced dancers who are looking to fine tune their technique, enhance their balance and to continue their training. Level 2 is a similar structure to Level 1 but the exercises are modified to use more strength, balance, and flexibility. You will notice a change in your legs, arms, shoulders, buns and abs right away because each DVD is structured like a real dance class. Each class consists of: - warm up - flat backs exercises - squats - plies - tendues - lateral strengthening - deep floor stretches - balance study - traveling steps - combinations - cool down. Overall I liked the beginners class and I was so tired that I only did the combination once which includes going to the floor and rising which is good for your abs. I wish the floor work had been more extensive as I love to stretch Would have loved to see more of hortons floor work especially in dvd 2. His floor work can be super challenging and fun. Nothing ever beats taking class in person but for those of us who have difficulty or a lack of access to a good modern dance class, this DVD is a boon. I appreciate the different versions of the workout with as little or as much explanation as you prefer. I dont care about the music because I dont think I have ever attended a modern dance class where I liked the music anyway... tune it out or put something else on in the background: problem solved. I finally did Disc 2 and it kicked my butt. All the variations are good. The advanced tendu sequence is done at tempo and double-time, the stretch sequence includes some pilate-esque ab work that will work you and I really liked the advanced movement combination at the end. This is definitely better done on a wooden floor, BTW and where you have room to swing your arms, kick your legs etc and move across the floor. If she ever decided to do a follow-up DVD Id be all over it. Its always better to take class in person but if you cant, then something like this is really wonderful to have on hand. I am a belly dancer, not a modern dancer, but I really enjoyed these DVDs. The technique is explained and demonstrated well, but once youre used to it, the chaptering allows you to do the workout straight through without listening to the directions every time. The fact that there are two DVDs gives you the option to progress. I like this video a lot. You can see what the instructor is doing, things are broken down well, and there are a lot of nice menu options such as doing the exercise with and without the teachers commentary. It is a good workout. I will use it regularly.
