Fitness Playlist Challenge #7: Move Your Middle

We kicked off our 2014 Fitness Challenge by setting our fitness goals and signing our fitness contracts, and now it's time to get to work! Each Monday we'll be posting a new Fitness Challenge to help guide you in your Dance Central work out. Read below and get those feet moving!

The Core Strengthening Challenge

We're closing in on the home stretch, so don't lose focus now! Only two more weeks to go. This week's challenge will give your arms and legs a bit of a rest (well, as much a rest as they'll ever get dancing), as we're going to focus on strengthening that core! These muscles affect your balance, endurance, and strength, all of which are crucial for a dancer.

Challenge: Make a playlist of 10-15 of the songs below and play at least 3 times this week. Maybe throw in some pre-dance crunches, as well!
