Kukuwa Nuamah, 2011
This African dance workout dvd contains three 20 minute workouts: kids (ages 5-8), tweens (ages 9-12), and teens (13-18). Each segment contains a separately chaptered learn the moves tutorial. Kukuwa works out in a cute outdoor courtyard set with age appropriate kids in the background. Great upbeat music!
All the moves are authentic African dance moves – so while I may reference aerobic steps, those are as close a description I can provide to you so you can get a feel for the workout. Each song has its own little routine so there is very little TIFTing – which is a great format to keep the little ones engaged.
Kids: Moves include arms rolls while walking forward & back, wiggle, walking up & back with arm movements, swimming, march & clap, double side step w/ sunshine arms, side shuffle, rocking, etc.
Tweens: Moves include marching, V steps, shuffle, criss cross jacks, ham curls, knee ups, bow & arrow, shake your boombsey w/ speed bags, move forward & back, etc.
Teens: Moves include double step – turn- knee up, floor touch w/ ham curls, heel jacks, circle heel taps, galloping, hop boombsey shakes, etc.
I would rate each section appropriate in cardio level and choreography for each age group but think most kids (and adults) will enjoy all the sections! Great upbeat energy & music- you can really tell Kukuwa is having a good time and doing something she is very passionate about. I love seeing new fitness dvds to get youth moving! This is one that you will enjoy doing with your kiddos and they will enjoy doing with you! I had a great time shaking my boombsey! Received this dvd to review.
