Dancing is not only wonderful for fitness and toning but the combination of cardiovascular exercise and music triggers the release of endorphins so you enjoy yourself at the same time. Dance to the Musicals takes all that virtuous pleasure and multiplies it a hundredfold by setting 10 dance routines to some of the best, most toe-tapping show-tune hits ever - from 'The Time of My Life' and 'We Will Rock You' to 'Mamma Mia' and 'Night Fever'. All the routines are illustrated with clear, easy-to-follow instructions and come with step-by-step photography that takes you through every movement, enabling you to master the dances effortlessly. Accompanied by a free DVD that showcases 4 of the routines 'You Can't Stop the Beat', 'We Go Together', 'Fame' and 'Go Go Joseph' - fitness has never been such fun.
