Bokwa in Christchurch
Bokwa is a cardio-licious blend of hip-hop and step aerobics that taps into South African-style dance.
Confused? Don’t be — the dance steps are actually based on letters and numbers, not choreography. The movements are in the shape of English-language letters, for example L, J, and C. Once dancers have the steps down, they can jazz it up with extra shimmies, hip bumps, or other freestylin’ moves.
The program’s beauty is its simplicity. Because each move is pretty basic, dancers can get as fancy (or high-energy) as they want or keep it basic (and low-impact). Click to watch a video
