Hi my name is Hayley Cloud. I am here at New England Dance in Westfield, Massachusetts, and today I am going to show you a little hip hop dance workout. So we're going to start facing the side, feet apart and you are going to bend your knees a little bit and do two chest pops and you are going to go one and two, good, just do that again, six, seven, eight and one and two, good. Now you're going to go do criss crosses, so face the other way so you are going to cross your left foot in front, one, uncross two, now cross your right foot in front, three and four. Now you're facing the other way. Now you're going to do two more chest pops facing this way. So you go one and two and you're going to do two more criss crosses but we're not going to face the other way we're going to face straight on and you go, cross the right foot in front first, cross the right and unwind and left and stop. Very nice, let's try that altogether, face the left, feet apart, bend your knees and you go one and two and criss cross, criss cross, one and two and criss cross, criss cross, very nice. Moving on we're going to do four shoulder blows so make your fists, you're going to make sure that knee comes in so you are working the legs as well. You go one and two and three and four and, very nice. Let's try that whole thing together. Face the left, feet apart, bend your knees, two chest pops, six, seven, and you go one, two, criss cross, criss cross, one, two, and criss cross, criss cross, one and two and three and four, good. You're going to put your weight back on the left side. You're going to kick out to the side, kick step and finish, what. Very nice so put that, actually let's do it from the shoulder blows again so your feet are apart and you just finished the two criss crosses, your hands are in fists and you go one and two and three and four, step on it, five, six, seven, finish your workout, what, eight, good. Let's put it altogether, face the left, bend your knees, six, seven and two chest pops, one and two and criss cross, criss cross, one and two and criss cross, criss cross, shoulder and shoulder and shoulder and shoulder and step and kick and step, step, finish. There you have it, your hip hop workout.
