Kukuwa  is an internationally acclaimed African Dance Performer, Dance Choreographer Fitness Dance Instructor and Originator of Gye Nyame African Cultural Dance Company, and Kukuwa, LLC® of the Kukuwa Dance Workout. Kukuwa blends African soukous, makossa, and soca rhythms into a low impact, high energy cardiovascular, fun-filled energetic class that challenges and improves individuals' fitness abilities. Kukuwa teaches children, teens, and adults (both men and women) the techniques of African Cultural Dancing. 

Keep reading to find out how you can win your very own Kukuwa Move Your Boombsey: Adults - African Dance Workout!

Kukuwa Nuamah, 2011

This African dance workout dvd contains two 30 minute workouts: Intermediate and Advanced. Each workout contains a separately chaptered learn the moves tutorial. Kukuwa works out in a cute outdoor courtyard set with a group of male & female background exercisers. You won't need any equipment for this workout. 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 great to prevent boredom & to keep things interesting & fun while shaking your boombsey! Both workouts contain mixed impact African dance moves.

Intermediate Workout: (30 minutes) After a fun dance warmup Kukuwa includes both vertical and horizontal movements with plenty of arm & head movements to get you moving & raise your heart rate. Exercises include: hops, skips, toe taps, hand rolls, shaking your boombsey, football shuffle, and many of the moves hit your core!

Advanced Workout: (30 minutes) After a great dance warmup Kukuwa again includes both vertical and horizontal movements with lots of arm & head movements to get you shaking your boombsey & get your heart rate up. Exercises include: chug, claps, skips, shoulder shrugs while moving your boombsey, knee ups w/ raise the roof arms, side knee ups, quick African sytle ham curls, etc. 

I would rate both workouts intermediate in terms of choreography and cardio level! Great upbeat energy & music- you can really tell Kukuwa is having a good time and doing something she is very passionate about. This is a very feel good workout- sure to leave you worked out & smiling. Great to adapt to a rebounder.  Received this dvd to review.
