At-Home Dance Workouts for When You Just Want to Let Loose
It doesn't look like the dance cardio trend is going anywhere soon, so move to the beat and get your heart pumping with one of these YouTube fitness videos.
Dance cardio sometimes carries a bad rep, but it can be a kickass workout that gives you that wonderful post-workout endorphin rush plus a surge of sexy confidence. (There's nothing like some hair whips and body rolls to get you feelin' yourself.) Learning choreography gets your mental muscles firing too, meaning you can totally count this as a #selfcare way to take care of your body and mind. Nervous to bust a move in public? Too lazy to leave the house? These free online dance workout videos are the perfect at-home option.
