This combination is from Rachel's full class. It's just the combination without the warm up or cool down, presented here for those who are short on time or want to sequence it with other classes of your choice. The combination includes a simple isolation pattern, hip work, a traveling step, and a slightly theatrical ending. It was created to be used over and over for several months: it begins simply and increases tempo three times so you can work at your current speed. It's suggested that you warm up a bit before trying this combination.
