At my gym they describe it as a "perfect blend of dance and step-aerobics". You combine different styles such salsa, mambo, cha cha and put them together in a choreography. Instead of dancing only on the floor, you are using step to increase difficulty. You also add regular step-elements, if you know what I mean. Basic, knee etc. You can probably find better description on internet. :)

I've never even heard of step dancing. I've done step for a long time, though. It sounds like a lot of fun! I'll have to check to see if my gym offers one in the future.

It is! I want to go on Saturday again :) In general I am not a good danser, but I really enjoy dansing. And it's even better if I can combine it with normal fitness activity, such as step.

Never look down on anybody, unless you're helping them up.

It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived.

I went last night to a Contra Dance which is like the dance on Road to Avonlea. They have dances like the Virginia Reel. It was my first time, my kids took me, and I loved it. It wasn't really hard workout but it was good for me. All the other dancers there were so helpful and taught me a lot. You just get in your group, listen to what the caller says, and rely on your partner to help you learn. It was great fun!!

I went to a step dance class at the gym i used to live across the street from. Once you learn the steps it's awesome!! But a bit intimidating the first day you walk in - I walked in and they were at the end of one of their projects, so I had no idea what they were doing and couldn't keep up :(

I would go again if I had a membership ;-)

Today I went to the gym for my very first Step Dance classes. It was awsome!!!!!! Very difficult in the beginning, but fun afterwards, when I leaned all steps. I used to go to step classes, but never to Step Dance. It is a great combination of intensive workout and FUN:)))))) TRy it! emoticon
