NSD ONLINE CLASSES - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
An NSD Online dance fitness class will be approximately 40 minutes long plus 1 or 2 bonus toning tracks. Each class starts with a couple of warm-ups, and then the tracks alternate between higher and lower intensity to increase the fitness benefits for you. Each class finishes with at least one cool down / stretch routine.
THE MUSIC: It is all about music that is great to dance to, with lots of variety: 80s pop, Disco, 90s Hip Hop, Latest Hits, Rock, Country, EDM, Latin, Bollywood ... the list goes on :). You will probably know (and love) most of the songs we dance to.
THE MOVES: The moves and the music must work together. When I choreograph routines, I pay close attention to the style of music, the genre, and the lyrics. That way the moves really fit with the song. I include lots of different dance styles and steps in my classes. But I make sure the moves I use are fun, safe and easy-to-master. Absolute beginners love the joy and satisfaction that comes with mastering new steps. And those who have done dance or dance fitness before love the variety of styles and moves they get to experience in every class.
THE FITNESS: Don't let the word "fun" fool you ... you will sweat in my classes ... a lot. But when you love the song, and you love the moves, then you will give it all you've got :). The improvements in your fitness, strength and wellbeing will simply follow ... easy :). Life is too short to do boring or repetitive exercise.

NSD Online classes are pre-recorded a day or so before they go live. Pre-recording the class means the video and audio quality are excellent, and avoids the technical, time zone, and music licensing issues that can arise with live streaming.
Yes. NSD Online classes are here to stay ... yippee!
