Swank is the Hot New Dance Fitness Phenomenon fusing Fitness with Partner Dancing. A program designed for a strong cardio workout with the hidden intent of teaching you to partner dance! The partner is Desired.. not Required! The workout provides the tools for you to move on your own first. It’s more exciting, more interesting and more appealing than a typical aerobic program. You’ll never get bored – and you will look forward to having a partner join you – and that will inspire you to work out more.
Start with Swank ICE. There are 26 ICE movements provided in the DVD SET, Step 1. Very simply stand in front of a mirror and follow the ICE pieces provided, one at a time. Get comfortable moving each piece of your body, building a library of different movements and isolations that you can then “plug in” to your dance! (mirror suggested for personal critique)
