Ideal Exercise Class

My doctor recently told me I needed to start exercising. With the way my life is right now, walking on the treadmill is the least objectionable and more convenient way for me to exercise at the moment. But the instructions got me thinking. I prefer Dancercise to actually exercise, so I came up with a program list of what I would like to see in a 1-2 hour class.

Warm Up:

Stretching

Ballet moves
