Fun complex moves told to a story
Be warned beginner steppers, the stepping is very very complex. Don't
even try this workout if you haven't mastered the step and are so used
to your step that you are completely skilled at stepping. Meaning: You
love step so much that it is like a part of your body. The stepping is
38 minutes and it is filled with lot's of fun complex moves told to a
story. Like the step is the hill that Jack runs up and so on. You use
all sides of the step which keeps things fresh. It is very dancy too.
But not too high impact. Some jumps but mostly the stepping is low
impact and high in complexity. Reverse turns and twirls. I can't do
the over the top twirl move since I have carpet but it looks fun. - posted by Mandy Lee
I love this routine
Masterpiece Step Theater. You do the workout in the form of a "story."
Each part of the story has its own move associated with it. Jack and
Jill meet Janet Jackson at a party. Jack takes off with Janet, and they
go on a world tour. Jill gets really ticked
and stomps around some, then finally calls the 3 Stooges for help.
There, the story line stops. Somehow, Paula Abdul gets involved, but
you are left not knowing if poor Jill ever got Jack back. But I digress
-- back to the steps. You learn moves like Janet Jackson, the Curly
Shuffle, the stomp (when Jill gets mad), make
the call (dialing the 3 Stooges), and many more. The story line and giving the patterns names actually helps to
keep you on track. I love this routine. Janis is very warm, friendly, and fun. I'd like to see her in some more
videos. Besides, she didn't finish the "story," so she needs to do
a sequel! - posted by Annie S.
