This 90-minute RAWR with Rodney James Burlesque Edition DVD is not only about sexy dance, burlesque choreography and movement – it is about opening yourself up and finding out who is inside of you through dancing. This is about freeing, liberating the sexy creature inside of you, being empowered, having fun, smiling and feeling sexy and beautiful. It is about finding confidence and tapping into that inner power. Forget what you look like in the mirror – leave the judgments behind and follow along!
The warm up section is a slow and composed of elegant, easy-to-follow and learn moves that can be used later in the routine. The routine has lots of fun parts that you can also use in floorwork, chair dance or pole dance routines or just for a workout in itself.
The routine instructional sections are also easy to follow
and Rodney gives lots of correct and incorrect demonstrations so that you can
get your form right for the choreography. The choreo again is sexy, pretty,
elegant, clean and can be used in so many other dance disciplines. The moves
can be slowed down or sped up. He goes over positioning for your eyes, chin,
shoulders, hands and helps you to get beautiful lines in all of your moves.
Something I loved about RAWR with Rodney James Burlesque Edition is that it starts with this great introduction of the cast – 11 “every-day” women, a schoolteacher, a physical therapist, a housewife - not fitness trainers or professional dancers – although there are dancers and dance instructors in there! But it just showed me that anyone can do this – RAWR or Burlesque Beat, another of Rodney’s fun dance DVDs – have fun, learn some new moves and most importantly learn something about themselves.
In all, I enjoyed this DVD a lot and will be learning and using these moves, maybe even the whole routine!

The Mojo Technique By Rodney James
"The Mojo Technique” is a revolutionary, transitional fitness system created by world-renowned fitness dancer/choreographer Rodney James aka The Mojo Man, and Director of the “RAWR with Rodney James” Dance Fitness DVDs series.
Rodney’s initial desire was not only to create a clever exercise technique to safeguard against injuries but also bring out the “Power of the Mojo” through performance. Already possessing a strong passion for such an art form with a successful international performing career, he knew he wanted to share this joy and experience with his clients both in private and group form.
By educating his clients and providing a strong solid foundation based on yoga, fitness, strength and dance, Rodney knew he could help his clients avoid not only the wear and tear of injuries but also the boredom that is sometimes attached to fitness. Fitness is not only a privilege but it can be a beautiful, loving activity.
The Mojo Technique is here to transform the lives and bodies of everyone whether it be a dancer, athlete, professional or senior regardless of age, shape or size. It’s time for living, longer and stronger! RAWR with Rodney James!
