Dance cardio {video}

Hi! Hope you’re having a wonderful week. Remember to keep those giveaway entries coming!

We’re heading back on the road to Tucson, but in the meantime, I’d love to share a new dance cardio video that Sasha and I made last week. We’ve been having a lot of fun posting Zumba, quick strength and barre workouts, but we realized that we still hadn’t posted something we love to teach together: basic dance cardio!

Dance cardio

We break down a short combo and then complete the whole thing with music. Feel free to put on your favorite song and rock out to the combination once you know the steps! You end up facing the right side, so a great way to do it would be to go through it 4 times, each facing a different direction (clockwise: front, facing right, facing back, facing left).

We hope you enjoy it! Thanks for dancing with us πŸ™‚

See ya in Tucson with some of our Cali adventures <3

    Awesome workout. I really wish I was a better dancer. I’m totally challenged in that department. That’s one thing I always wish I did more of as a kid, but alas I’m just not meant to move that way πŸ˜‰

    I love your videos! Thanks for posting them! Dance cardio is one of my favorites as well! πŸ™‚

    Hi Gina, I have been reading your blog for a long time and I love it!! I have been wondering what is your advice on macro percentages? I know you have mentioned that you keep track of them and not calories so much? Do you have any recommendations as to what to set them at? I would love to know your thoughts. Thanks so much!!

    Gina I love these videos! Thank you so much for sharing! I really don’t understand where you get all the energy you have – I need some of it! πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for posting this!

    Love all these videos! It’s always fun to have a new cardio dance to try!

    Hope you’ve had a fun vacay and safe travels home!!

    How fun! I wish I was at home so I can try this. Will definitely give it a shot later this week!

    Hi Gina-

    This is completely not related to your post, and I am sorry because I do not now how to e-mail to ask questions so I thought I would ask here: do you own a juicer? I am looking into getting one (probably the Breville ikon 5 speed juicer). I am looking for any recommendations! Thanks and hope vacation was a BLAST!

    great routine! you and sasha make it look incredibly easy. BTW, my zumba class (all the way in PA) loved your don omar “hasta que salga” choreography. i used it last week for the 1st time and it was a hit. they loved the arm movements on the single, single double hop and the chest/booty shake break.

    I love this! It’s such a great way to take advantage of cardio indoors!

  11. Jessica on July 17, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    Looks fun! Can’t wait to give this one a try!

  12. Anne on July 17, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    Really fun to dance to – took a little break while working to do it (in the privacy of my living room!).

    One thing – Gina, it would of been nice to start the entire routine over again while adding in your steps – by the time we got to the end and did the whole thing through I had forgotten some of Sasha’s bits! So maybe just between one of your sets doing a quick run through of the whole thing to help link it all together?

    Thanks again for making the video!

    I’ve never done a dance cardio class. Do you find that new participants struggle with the combos? I feel like I’d spend more time standing around watching than actually doing anything! πŸ™‚

    Hope you’ve had a great family vacay!

  14. Avery on July 17, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    holy fun! thanks for posting! so much fun to learn a dance routine!

    Love your dance routines, they make me want to get up and DANCE around my room! Thanks for sharing πŸ˜‰ Love + Shine CourtStar

  16. Laura on July 18, 2013 at 12:34 am

    Awesome video, it looks like so much fun, can’t wait to try!

  17. Ashley V on July 18, 2013 at 9:31 am

    I have zero experience with choreographed dancing, so I can’t imagine how many tries it would take me to get this right, but it sure looks fun!

    Yeah for dance cardio videos! One of my favorite ways to get my heart rate up during the day (yes dancing in my office behind closed doors counts!) haha. Thanks for sharing πŸ˜‰

  19. Irene on July 18, 2013 at 11:06 am

    I tried it! I have some dance background so I thought I’d pick it up faster than I did. It is a fun routine though! I paired it up with some other videos from your youtube channel for a great work out. Love those booty burners! I think they are my favorite of yours.
