I'm an aerobics NUT! I'm always out here trying to find the next thing aerobic. Aerobic striptease, aerobic tennis, gospel aerobics, jail house aerobics, aerobic cooking, aerobic dog sledding....Hey, what 'cha got? I'll try it at least once!
I stumbled across this cute little video of aerobic Irish dancing, and just in time for St. Patrick's Day! How about that?! It's definitely a few minutes of fun, and you WILL break a sweat from the jumping. I ran it and did it twice in a row. Do it 3 times and you've got a good little bit of cardio in for the day, for sure.
I do, however, have a question. Anybody... What is the deal with the non movement of the arms in Irish dancing? I actually started to add my own arm movements to the routine, because I'm so used to moving ALL of my body when dancing or exercising. So... What's the legend, rule, tradition, reason, etc, for keeping your arms stiffly down by your sides when doing this type of dance? Come on, you smarties, I know one of you knows...! Clue a diva in!
In the meantime, enjoy!
