STEP UP: THE OFFICIAL DANCE WORKOUT WITH TOBIAS MEAD
In 2010 The Mixup brought you coverage from some of the UK’s biggest dance events including the Streetdance XXL Champinships and The Sony Ericsson B-Boy Championships.
We also brought you exclusive interviews some of the hottest street dancers in the UK, including Akai (Got to Dance) and Rhimes Lecointe (Justine, Street Dance 3D).
It only seemed right that we kick off our magazine in 2011 with another huge dance event and competition.
For music video and film fanatics who need to ‘step-up’ their toning regime… get ready to dance your way to an awesome body with STEP UP THE OFFICIAL DANCE WORKOUT inspired by the hugely popular STEP UP movies rand presented by BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT Finalist TOBIAS MEAD.
Box office smash, STEP UP, has sold over TWO MILLION DVD copies to-date and has an army of street dance devotees in every corner of the world. STEP UP THE DANCE OUT is the first dance DVD from the perfectly toned STEP UP franchise.
BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT finalist, Tobias Mead, along with his crew of the countries top street dance acts whose credentials clock up an astonishing list of A-list superstars, will break down each move not only showing to to perfectly execute them but have you looking toned and sharp as you perform them.
The enlisted crew include dancers who have worked alongside some of music biggest names including Rihanna, Kanye West, Madonna, Black Eyed Peas, Nelly Furtado and Mariah Carey to X Factor heros Alexandra Burke, JLS and Leona Lewis. Expect nothing less than all the latest moves from the movies and pop videos in STEP UP THE DANCE OUT.
Including killer tracks from top artists including Timbaland featuring Nelly Furtado, T-Pain, Run DMC, Chingy and Ciara featuring Missy Elliot, there is a pace and dancing style to suit everybody. Each of the six main dance sections are broken down into easy-to-learn moves so that fans can pick up the skills and learn the swagger and skills of street dance step-by-step.
Kicking off the action with a ‘Walkthru’ section, the STEP UP DANCE OUT crew showcase the basic steps no street-styler can be without. Three short teaching sections follow, which take wannabe street dancers through the step sequence at half tempo. Moving up a gear the ‘Steps Combined’ section turns up the pace to full tempo, laying down some killer moves. Finally, at the end of each section ‘The Dance Out’ combines all the previous steps at full tempo so dancers can really show off their awesome new street moves.
