Why I love dance cardio: It's super fun, energetic, and essentially exercise in disguise.

However, if you've ever shied away from a dance-inspired workout, because you don't consider yourself a "dancer," let me set the record straight: As long as you're moving, you're doing it right. It's not about looking like the instructor, or getting the move perfect—if you keep your body grooving, you're golden.

If you're still not convinced, allow me to introduce you to this easy-to-follow dance cardio routine I created just for mbg moves. We're going to learn five different basic moves and build on them as we go. As we get dancing, feel free to add some arm movements or a little extra personality and zest—whatever your body needs.
