December 28, 2006 by  

Danceafreaka DVDForget about gym memberships, regular aerobics classes or exercise balls. If you’re in the know then the way to get fit for 2007 must be to try Danceafreaka. With classes in Fitness First® gyms across London and a brand new home workout DVD, if you try this unique workout program, you’ll no doubt be dropping the pounds in no time.

Danceafreaka combines traditional African Dance with aerobic exercise to create an exhiliarating workout routine accompanied by the rythmic sounds of live African Drumming. Developed by Kwaku A. Mensah of Ancestral Hands Ltd, the DVD helps you to experience the “Kloga” routine in the comfort of your own home.

Mensah said “We knew that a lot of people saw getting fit as a chore and we wanted to inject the fun back into fitness through African dance.”

Choreorgrapher Kofi Dennis Adorsoo takes you through a warm up, an intense practice session, through the main routine and then warms you down. John Ballaman of Fitness First said “African Dance is excellent for fitness as it involves working your whole body.”

Mensah believes African dance is set to revolutionize dance fitness. As fun as salsa or samba, as beautiful and graceful as ballet, maybe we’ll see some of it in next seasons Strictly Come Dancing.
