Dancing Digits

First, there was Jazzercise...

Then, there was Zumba...

And Bhangra...

And probably a bunch of other dance fitness crazes I've never heard of. My point is, people have been getting fit by shakin' what their mommas gave them since way before our time.

And do you blame them? I mean, dance is fun and it's exercise. I don't know about you, but I usually don't think about how exhausted I am until after a dance class is pretty much over. (Well, maybe when the teacher makes us repeat petit allegro five bajillion times, I begin to realize that I'm a bit winded...but you catch my drift.)

So that's why Paul Mavi and Johann Verheem introduced Bokwa to the dance fitness scene.  Bokwa combines hip hop, step aerobics and South African dance into a fun cardio class. But here's the kicker: there's no choreography. Instead, each "move" is based on a letter or a number. So instead of memorizing steps or counts, you just dance the digits.
