Shake The Pounds Away With Zumba Fitness Core

Written by lyricsmama on February 12, 2013 – 4:55 PM -


I’m a huge fan of Zumba! I do it every week at least 4 times a week when I can. I love it! It relives stress, and I’m exercising while having fun, which is important! I never thought I’d like ‘classes’ but with Zumba it’s different, it’s not like just another exercise class. There are however some days my classes aren’t offered, or I just can’t make it.

When that happens I just pop in one of my Zumba Fitness games for my Xbox 360 Kinect. One of my newest added to my collection is Zumba Fitness core. Why I was most excited about this game was because it would focus on my abdominal’s. While Zumba seems to shape and tone my other muscles, my stomach is one of the hardest and last places I see a change, so a chance to focus on my core, while doing my favorite exercise was a plus!


Zumba Fitness Core targets your abs without the crunches. You’ll learn fun, effective ways to target your core muscles with 40 songs that will get you moving. Zumba Fitness Core provides you with different dance moves taken from Jazz, Latin Pop, Salsa, Russian Folk and more, there’s such a wide range and don’t worry if you can’t dance… Just have FUN and MOVE!

I absolutely adore this workout! I wish we would incorporate some more of the ‘core’ moves during our class, but since I have Zumba Fitness Core at home, it keeps me going.

When you pop in the game, you’ll set up your fitness goals, and learn the Zumba moves with some fun tutorials. You can also select your workout. Make sure you’re ready to sweat because that’s what’s going to happen. Zumba Fitness Core is a motivating game that’s fun for the whole family, and you’ll forget your actually ‘exercising’.

This is such a fun game/workout… Can’t dance? Don’t worry about it, you’ll be having a great time, and you’ll learn the moves eventually. Start out slow and work on it daily, Zumba Fitness Core will help you reach your goals!

You can find out more about Zumba Fitness Core and other Zumba Fitness Games by visiting  Zumba Fitness Core is also available to purchase at most major retailers as well as for the Wii, or Kinect for Xbox 360.

We own probably EVERY dance game ever created for video game systems.  Yup, we’re that hardcore.. OK not really we just think we are…So when I had the chance to check out another edition of Just Dance, how could I say no?

Just Dance 4 is just like Just Dance 1-3 except new songs!  YAY!  New songs always give the dance games new life in our house.  My youngest was especially excited that One Direction had a song featured in Just Dance 4 and my oldest could dance to a Justin Bieber song. (yes these are probably the most played songs in the game)


The latest edition of the record-breaking franchise takes the party to a whole new level of fun, with over 40 all-new chart-topping hits, the coolest dances and unique features for every platform.

Just Dance 4 is your ticket to the best new music with over 40 tracks from a variety of top artists, popular genres and hot billboard songs like “Good Feeling” by Flo Rida, and “Moves like Jagger” by Maroon 5 ft. Christina Aguilera. The tracklist also features legendary artists such as Barry White and The B-52’s to get the whole family up and moving.

Just Dance 4 is the perfect catalyst for the best parties, no matter what the occasion, thanks to innovative new modes like the all-new Battle mode, an upgraded Just Sweat mode, and even more fun, exclusive modes for each platform.

As usual, Just Dance 4 has different dance modes and difficulty, you can also use practice mode where the moves are broken down for you to help you learn the routine.

What I liked was that if my daughter was playing, I or any other family member could jump in at any point within the song and be added to the game.

In Just Dance 4 there is also a new battle mode where you can challenge your friends in 6 rounds of dance battles to be crowned the dance battle champion!

Another fun addition is the Just Sweat It Out mode for those who are like me and use these dance games as a workout.  This mode will give you a personalized program as well as feedback and a calorie counter.

Just Dance 4 is available for the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U, Playstation3 and Xbox360 Kinect.

Something special is there are exclusive features for the Xbox360 Kinect version.  My kids favorite is that they can immortalize their best moments with auto dance, where you can record your dance moves and sync them into an instant dance routine.  There’s also Just Dance TV that they love where you can record your videos and share and re-watch them with the Just Dance community!

Ubisoft’s Just Dance franchise is still a favorite in our books!  I hope they have many more to come!

You can purchase Just Dance 4 for your Xbox360, Wii, PS3 or Wii U at various retailers including

Got Skills? Check Out The Hip Hop Dance Experience

Written by lyricsmama on February 10, 2013 – 11:20 AM -


When I heard that Ubisoft was coming out with The Hip Hop Dance Experience I was beyond excited!  We’re huge fans of ‘dance’ games for our systems, but all the dance games have lacked any real hip hop songs, so I was beyond excited to try this out.

For both the Xbox Kinect  and Wii The Hip Hop Dance Experience used celebrity choreographers to create the dance moves.  You’ll find tracks from over thirty of the most chart topping artists today such as Drake, Lil’ Wayne, Nicki Minag, and Snoop Dog.  You’ll also find a few artists from ‘back in the day’ like Outkast and Run-DMC, plus sooo many more!


From Run-DMC to Chris Brown, Rob Base to Nicki Minaj – this is the first dance game with a tracklist dedicated to the coolest genre in music. With moves developed by celebrity choreographers Laurieann Gibson (Nicki Minaj Creative Director, BET’s Born to Dance) and Dave Scott (So You Think You Can Dance, Battle of the Year), dance like a true artist to 30 years’ worth of hip-hop’s biggest hits.

Customize your avatar with hundreds of looks and accessories to express your personal fashion sense. Trigger lavish visual effects as you progress through the game. Master professional-level choreography with 3 difficulty levels for each song. Experience the world of hip-hop through music, dance, and design.

With a variety of unique game modes, including fun multiplayer parties and dance battles, The Hip Hop Dance Experience is the ultimate way to drop it like it’s hot with all your favorite hits.

Track listing

Amerie – “1 Thing”
B.o.B – “So Good”
B.o.B ft Hayley Williams of Paramore – “Airplanes”
Cassie – “Me & U”
Chris Brown ft Juelz Santana – “Run It!”
Chris Brown ft Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes – “Look At Me Now”
Ciara ft Missy Elliott – “One, Two Step”
Da Brat – “Funkdafied”
Drake – “Over”
Flo Rida ft Sia – “Wild Ones”
Iyaz – “Replay”
Jay Sean ft Lil Wayne – “Down”
J-Kwon – “Tipsy”
Kid Cudi – “Day ‘N’ Night”
Lil Wayne ft Static Major – “Lollipop”
LMFAO – “Sexy And I Know It”
M.I.A. – “Bad Girls”
Mark Morrison – “Return of the Mack”
Mystikal ft Nivea – “Danger (Been So Long)”
N.E.R.D. – “She Wants to Move”
Naughty by Nature – “Hip Hop Hooray”
Nelly – “Hot In Herre”
New Boyz – “You’re A Jerk”
New Edition – “If It Isn’t Love”
Nicki Minaj ft Drake – “Moment 4 Life”
Ol’ Dirty Bastard ft Kelis – “Got Your Money”
Outkast – “B.O.B.”
Pitbull ft Chris Brown – “International Love”
Q-Tip – “Vivrant Thing”
R. Kelly – “Ignition (Remix)”
Rihanna ft Jeezy – “Hard”
Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock – “It Takes Two”
Run-DMC – “It’s Tricky”
Snoop Dogg ft Pharrell Williams – “Drop It Like It’s Hot”
Terror Squad ft Fat Joe, Remy – “Lean Back”
The Sugarhill Gang – “Rapper’s Delight”
TLC – “Creep”
Too $hort – “Blow the Whistle”
Trey Songz ft Fabolous – “Say Aah”
Wiz Khalifa – “Work Hard, Play Hard”

I’ve only tried the Dance Party mode so far, you can pick the song you’d like to dance to and each song also lets you know (by flames lit up) the difficulty of the hiphopkinectsong.  Difficulty aside, the songs are all fun to dance to, and even if you’ve never danced or done a hip hop dance move in the past, this is a great game to play to kick up your activity level, or just have a fun time with the family!

My only real complaint about The Hip Hop Dance Experience is the ‘break’ part of every single song.  The song kind of pauses your dance moves and the ‘character’ on the screen breaks out some break dancing moves, which no one in their right mind playing this game should attempt in their living room, this part of the game really is to give you a break, there are no scores, but when I’m playing, I really don’t want to stop for it…

The Hip Hop Dance Experience is rated T for teens.  I play with my younger daughters (7 and 9) and they love it.  There’s no profanity in the songs, but it is hip hop, so what you hear on the radio from any hip hop song is basically what you get in the game.

You can purchase The Hip Hop Dance Experience at most retailers or online on
