“Dance Walking” is an outdoor workout–an improvised form of walking, with music, doing whatever movement comes naturally. It’s walking and moving your arms. Or skipping, skitching, low-stepping, sideways running. It’s responding to the rhythm, attitude, or story of the music you’re hearing. In short, it’s having a dance party in your living room, while walking through the park–hilarious and exhilarating.
Because Dance Walk is about the joy of moving to music, music is key! Everybody gets their rocks off to different music, so we don’t share a single soundtrack or playlist. We each bring an iPod & earbuds, and listen to our own tunes as we dance walk. The right Dance Walk music : a) ignites the body, b) serves as the engine that drives you, and c) becomes a score that you inhabit and conduct.
A word to the shy, self-conscious, and judgy: You will have the MOST fun of all. Once you’re warm and hit a musical flow, negative mental static falls away. Movement comes easily and music fuels the motion. Take it from a deeply self-conscious person, Dance Walk is a profoundly joyful liberation.
