What better way to break a sweat and strengthen your entire body than learning some great dance moves? When you're bored with going through the motions of your usual workout, hip-hop cardio is the perfect way to change things up. (Check out these four reasons not to dismiss dance cardio.)

In this video from the Tone & Trim series, Jaime McFaden teaches you moves to work your quads, glutes, and core in a dance routine that will strengthen your body and coordination. You'll work every angle with jumping jacks and squats all modified and set to the beat of a great track list. (Want more?

Your moves will include flying bird, jogging forward and back, jumping jacks, squats with reaches, hip circle and pop, the butterfly, and hip-hop jacks. Cool it down by hugging it out, triceps stretches, and hamstring curls.
