Day 2 - MTV urban dance workout at Virgin Active
I’ll admit it. I’m a street dance junky. I like to harbour secret delusions that I could be in a crew battling on the dance floor for honour (and wedges of cash). Of course I can’t be in a crew, I don’t know anyone else who’s into street dance and I don’t actually have the time to dedicate to it.
Hurrah (or should that be “brrraaaap, braaaap”?) for MTV’s Urban workout at Virgin Active gyms. One hour of pure street-dancey joy. It’s an exercise class disguised as a dance crew practice session with elements of street and break dance. It's inspired by Randy Jackson presents America's Best Dance Crew so what do you expect?
To a hip hop, R&B, house, and dance soundtrack you learn a short, simple yet still pretty cool dance routine and “battle” other crews made up of members of the class in a (sadly) non-competitive manner.
The hour-long classes pass in the blink of an eye and leave you sweaty and happy like you’re a six year old after a gymnastics class. So much fun!
The achey muscles the following day were not so much fun but you don’t get anywhere without a little effort – I see my creaking bones as proof of that effort (and further proof that I will NEVER be in a crew. Damn it.)
