Hi Steppers, i'm deep in music selection mode for the next BODYSTEP release (#63). What I want to know is what songs are hot on the charts in you country at the moment, and whether you think they would be great for BODYSTEP. Also, if you have an old favorite tune, let me know, as we can re-make a blast from the past into a modern winner.
Looking forward to hearing your suggestions!
Flat out trialling BODYSTEP 62 this week so great to get outside for a while – this outdoor photo shoot was a blast. The setting was a steep set of steps in a leafy park in Auckland and a great place to capture some of the spirit of the program. Watch out for some cool new posters for those club walls.
Back to 62 and last-minute choreo tweaks before we film in just over a week. It’s all good guys and it’s going to be great rolling this one out around the end of the year. Big challenges in the peaks and some good blocks of power moves for a solid, honest workout (there’s a wicked leg burner in there, too, people. Ouch!!!)
Hope to see lots of you steppers joining us for filming on the 10th. And if you can’t make this one make a date for 63.
Off to Portland, Oregon tomorrow for another quarterly and the guys are really looking forward to another great workshop. This is hard work but worth every minute for the response we’re getting from some amazing US instructors.
Check out these pics from Atlanta (thanks Tiffany Ferguson!) and these ones from Dallas (Marci Skelton – you rock!) love the haka pics.
Our guys just love bringing this slice of Kiwi culture to the States and especially because it ties in so well with Les Mills – “haka” is a Maori word that means “to ignite the breath” and that says so much about what we do. Steve’s the expert and he’s pointed out this link for anyone who wants to know a bit more about the traditional Maori challenge.
