“I was so excited to be a part of this project,” said Burke. “I have never had an opportunity like this before, to combine my love of Latin dance with my passion for fitness. This workout is unlike any other I’ve seen and I think people will enjoy it.”
Latin Live by Jazzercise combines popular movements from the Jazzercise dance fitness program with Latin ballroom dance styles including jive, samba, merengue, cha-cha and rumba. The result is a 45-minute fast-paced cardio workout that captures the energy of a Jazzercise class by including a live audience that shimmys and shakes to the beats of live percussionist Jorge Bermudez.
“Since Latin ballroom is Cheryl Burke’s specialty and so many Jazzercise routines are choreographed to Latin music and incorporate Latin dance moves already, Latin Live was a natural fit,” said Missett. “By combining traditional Jazzercise cardio with the spicy flair of Latin dance, you get a challenging, fun combination that highlights the diversity of the Jazzercise dance fitness program.”
In addition to the full workout, Latin Live by Jazzercise includes a 10-minute ab burn and 20-minute Latin ballroom blast. The Latin Live home workout DVD is available now at jazzercise.com and in the Jazzercise apparel 2011 holiday catalog.
