Strong Man; Good Girl!!

The roles on the dance floor are clearly defined!  Girls must be 'good' and guys must be 'strong.' A man is the leader; he is strong, confident and committed to making the ladies experience enjoyable, memorable and enlightening.  A lady's position it to follow; no matter what.  She is to be respectful, patient and allow the man to deliver his plan with ease and deliberation.  If you both dedicate yourselves to fulfilling these roles: MAGIC!!

A Ballroom Dance Fitness Class

So what exactly do we get from this class......formerly known as rungodance, soon to be 'something' else.  Who cares really,  what it's called?  What the heck is it good for?  Well frankly I have amazed myself as how nicely my students have progressed.  I have taken non-dancing people and created a sense of coordination and fluidity, I tell ya, I have been amazed.

It's easy to learn the ballroom dances in this format; all of them. I use all the rhythms in my class from Foxtrot to Salsa and Bolero to Zydeco and anything else you can think of! It's a must experience kind of thing! The class imposes such movement and demand that the participant disengages the mind and the thinker (always the culprit ) and gives the body a chance to move and grove to the beat and rhythm.  Ladies follow and learn to WAIT for the cue before they move and men do the same as for the key to any good leader is to be a great FOLLOWER (one secret out!).

Calories burned equal any where from 300 to 600,  depending on the energy out put.  Sweat, yes you will sweat and use every muscle in the body. Stretch, yes you will stretch and gain flexibility if not on purpose, by accident.

Your relationship with music will be enhanced NO MATTER WHAT.  Your understanding and predictability of music will get better and better.  I have seen NON music people actually develop a sensitivity and awareness to the music.  It's really all about the music.

Whether you feel like learning to dance, developing your lead or follow, feeling  the music, building your confidence, losing some fat or burning some calories or just feel like being expressive and having a good time,  this class is for you.

Fat Burning Machine Post Cruise Update

June 2nd was the first leg of our Fat Loss Seminar and on June 7th I went on a cruise; 4 days of food, drink, desserts, boose and many decadent choices of items to intake. This is the third cruise I've been on since I has 'changed my eating habits' and I must say this is the third cruise that I have not stressed over 'what am I going to eat today' scenario. I have been a bonified binger/purger and I am so happy to declare that the urge to do either didn't even enter my mind this trip, nor the previous two cruises. It's been about 2 years now since I would say my bullimia is under control. Hallilejiah! It has not been easy, living with food addiction is quite challenging. (Another time to elaborate on that topic)
The point of my story is that can go on a cruise and make good choices AND enjoy yourself. I had decided that I would not stop working out on the trip and also that I would not skip meals. (Remember that this system of fat optimization considers 'skipping meals' cheating) . I ate 4 to 6 meals each day. I drank alcohol and sugar drinks moderatley and I maintained my normal work out schedule. (Most hotels and cruise ships have gyms as to accommodate the guests). And of course each evening hit the nite club and danced the night away. Once your body is on the other side of being a fat storage incubator you can deviate and enjoy life and it's decadence.
I am here to tell you that it CAN be done. You can do it. You can turn your body into a fat burning machine!

Dance Progress in a Year!

Cyndi takes 2 to 3 Rungo Dance classes per week and rehearses with The Rungo Stars Team weekly. She has never had any official 'ballroom' dance lessons but was exposed to jazz and modern in her youth. She is very athletic and retains a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Her Latin blood has always availed her the opportunity to get along well rhythmically no matter what the music that is playing or the dance that is expected. She is no stranger to the dance floor!
About a year ago she accomanied a current student to one of my Rungo Dance Classes; she has been comong ever since. The point of the story is PROGRESS. We chatted last night, as we often do after class, and she said 'come on, be critical with me and tell me how I can improve.' I did, we reviewed her specific issues but more importantly I also was able to praise her for her wonderful achievements and progress. She is dancing as if she has been taking many private lessons.
Cyndi is a married, busy professional, she has three beautiful children and has dedicated herself to maintaining her classes for an entire year. When you see her dance it is breathtaking, I am amazed and taken back. I am so pleased and proud of her and my system because together they have really deveoped a force of synergy! Now, how do we get her husband to dance?
