Day 18 – Tick Tock Version 1

Today's blog post is another move that will be leading up to our final choreography. This is called the Tick Tock.

It works your abs because it forces you to pull them in and hold your back nice and strong and protected, it works your legs, both front and back depending on how low you go down into the move.

It also helps with balance by forcing most of the moves to be done on one leg and we also do this move pretty fast so make sure you practice lots in slow motion before the big choreography comes up soon.

Day 10 – Example choreo – What do you mean?

So for the last few videos I've showed you two of the moves needed for our final choreography for our full song.

Today is just a little video taken by one of my class in last week's class. Obviously I wasn't completely aware this was being taken until mid way through the video hence my laughter but this should give you an idea of what we are building up to and what you can expect the final song to look like.

Enjoy it, have a laugh at how red and sweaty I am and if you feel brave enough why not give it a little go with just this short clip.
