What is Curvy Dance? Tone Your Tummy Keep Your Curves
by Tina Boomerina (Christina Gregoire)
Curvy Dance is a hot new exercise routine that's popular with older women in Japan. And, after checking out the DVD, I can see why. Curvy Dancing looks like fun… not exercise.
Japanese Exercise Craze
The Curvy Dance video is sometimes called “Hiromi Kashiki’s Dance Exercise DVD.” Well, I should mention that the video comes with a book, but it’s in Japanese, so you might as well use it as a doorstop. Even after translating the webpage, its title came out as:
Desire old man does not know "I want to lose weight beautiful" woman's method of charismatic beauty trainer 40s surge of popularity!
So, you probably won't get much out of the exercise book or the website... haha.
Exercise Dance to Tighten Your Tummy
Curvy Dance is designed to tone the parts of your body that you want tighter (like your stomach), while keeping the groovy, curvy parts (like your breasts) curvy.
Why So Popular?
One of the reasons this exercise routine is all the rage (the DVD-books have sold over 2 million copies) is because Hiromi Kashiki, the woman who popularized Curvy Dance, is almost 50 years old and looks like a perky 20-something.
Curvy Dancing teaches movements designed to give you:
- A Small Waist
- Beautiful Breasts
- Small Hips
And, for some reason, I don't cringe as much when someone tells me to do another repetition in a foreign language.
Hiromi Kashiki, the video chick, is the personal trainer for a bunch of famous Japanese models and actresses whose names I can’t pronounce… and you won’t know who they are, either, so who cares...
Hey, I don’t know if you will actually get toned arms, a tight abdomen, and a small waistline from constricting your muscles while doing Japanese Dirty Dancing, but moving around (while some high-energy gal coaxes you into tightening your abs) has got to be better for you than sitting on your butts watching QVC. And, this video looks like something that might actually persuade women like me to put down their remote controls.
Note: I shouldn't have to remind you of this, but talk to your doctor before starting any new diet or exercise plan.
