Additional Information

Carnival in Bahia, Brazil is like no other carnival in the world. The city of Salvador de Bahia pulses with energy and excitement as throngs of people gather in a celebration of life. The Samba Reggae percussion groups called Blocos Afros parade in the streets as carnival participants dance and party. The Brazilian Carnival Dance Workout: Samba Reggae brings the excitement and energy of the Bahia carnival from Salvador to your home.

This vibrant total-body workout program weaves authentic Samba Reggae moves into high-energy dance combinations. Samba Reggae is an aerobic dance form - a great way to shake off stress, burn calories, and wake up your senses with invigorating rhythm. Samba Reggae is a street dance, its moves are simple and accessible to everyone, any body type, and any level of dance experience. As you follow Quenia Ribeiro and her Grupo Ribeiro dancers, you will learn faster with every step, your strength, flexibility, and nimbleness will grow every time you do this workout.

Building on the success of her Samba Reggae Workout DVD, Quenia Ribeiro designed The Brazilian Carnival Dance Workout as a blend of non-stop fitness movement and dance instruction. In the first section of the workout Quenia introduces Samba Reggae moves and combinations step-by-step, and practices them with you at a slower pace. The second and the third sections of the workout put together the Samba Reggae combinations at a medium tempo, and then at a fast tempo.

Quenia also offers a thorough warmup with upper and lower body isolations, exercises for abdominal and lower body strengthening and stretches, and a relaxing cooldown.

This dvd is the second in the Samba Reggae dance series. It is an excellent cardiovascular workout as well as being a lot of fun. It is quite different from her first samba reggae workout as such there is no problem in owning both of them. Here is a breakdown of the dvd:

Warm-up - this is a 25 minute thorough warm up from head to toe. If you have her samba cardio workout dvd, the warm-up is very similar. Standing stretches, abs, seated stretches and back stretches. Very nice. Quenia is accompanied by two dancers who I believe were in her last dvd.

Step by Step instruction + workout. This is the longest of the workout sections. About 25 minutes. The tempo is at a slow pace. The music for the workout sections is different from the previous dvd. It is all percussion with a senuous swing to it. Hard to describe, but I loved it. In the step by step instruction, Quenia goes over the choreography in sections. There are 5 sections with easy to learn steps in... Read more
I loved the previous Samba Reggae workout and was excited to receive her new dvd. I will say that it was a great workout and met my expectations. The reason I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 is because of the format. In her previous dvd she would teach a step and then you'd do the routine and after each new move you learned you would put them all together....With this workout she teaches all the steps in the beginning and at the end you put everything together. While I am not saying the moves were difficult, it;s hard to remember which moves come next, especially at such a fast pace. I found myself thrown off at times trying when doing the entire routine trying to remember which step should follow the previous. Had the instructional followed the same format as the previous dvd, this would have been a really good video.
Created by the dynamic Quenia Ribeiro for beginner and intermediate students, in her "Welcome" portion, Quenia says that even if we are just starting out, we will learn by repetition, and if the movements are too difficult at first, to "...modify them to suit your needs."

The 2nd part is a super-stretchy, extensive (approximately 20 minutes) and effective warm-up. Beyond learning the samba on this DVD, this warm-up would serve as a superb workout for those who just want to get in some daily yoga based stretches and poses for agility and strength building.

Quenia then takes the choreography in sections, repeating until it becomes familiar, and then, when putting it all together, steps up the tempo bit by bit. The steps themselves are simple, but you can get a fantastic aerobic workout by the time you're done. Only the most athletic will survive the final top speed version, but it's great to watch Quenia and her 2 assistants, Nao Yamada and Lisa Green, move with... Read more
