This DVD is fun and filled with African, Hip Hop and Latin choreography, It's fast-paced, full of dance and also easy to follow. Most of the moves are "African infused" variations of familiar classics like mambos, cha chas and box steps (often combined with hops, turns, chest pops and "fast feet" for variety). Each routine is broken down, practiced and then added on to make a complete combo. MaDonna's energy and passion are contagious. The entire class is having fun-sometimes following MaDonna, sometimes integrating their own moves, spirit and style.
