HIGH & LOW IMPACT AEROBIC DANCE WORKOUT

I spent 10 years as an aerobics instructor before retiring in 1997 at age 36. I saw a lot that developed in the workout world in that 10 years. I blew out my knees thanks to intense high-impact. I never warmed up to step-aerobics for 2 reasons: I found it boring, and my surgically-repaired knees did not react well anyway. So the high/low impact aerobic dance combo has been the workout that I have most enjoyed and that my body best accepts.

This is a compilation of the songs that worked best (and that my classes loved the most) for my workout routines over the years, and that are working for me now that I am preparing workout routines exclusively for myself:
