Guide Review - Review: Luigi's Jazz Warm Up

If you are familiar with Luigi, or have ever attended a Luigi dance class, this book will help you understand the underlying principles of his dance technique. The book cleary describes several key exercises used for warming up the body. Luigi describes his technique as a means to allow you to dance from the inside.

Although it is sometimes challenging to learn through pictures, this book does a nice job of teaching proper body alignment and form. Not only will the book help make you a more disciplined jazz dancer, it will also help you with other dance styles, such as ballet and modern dance.
