Aerobic Dance

Aerobic Dance™

A proprietary form of aerobic exercise developed in 1969 by an American, Jacki Sorensen. A typical routine consists of flexibility (to increase muscle elasticity), warm-up (which incorporates stretching into a dance, slowly increasing the heart rate and muscle temperature), followed by a 20–30 minute dance routine, and ending with a cool-down routine and stretching.
