CTS3-11 Workout Interviews* 4:38 Robin Johnson, Pam Coleman, Helena, Wendy
*The “Interviews” video includes short clips from those of us who were part of the CTS Team making CTS, Vol.3. We share some of our feelings and thoughts about CTS. Robin is the developer / choreographer, and Pam teaches CTS. The other two dancers, Helena and Wendy were new to the format and essentially trying it for the first time.


The workout uses all 25 of the CTS core combinations.

The Cardio Tribal Style, Volume 3 workout can be done by any fitness level, non-dancers to more advanced dancers. As with any fitness program, check with your health and medical advisors before doing it. You are fully responsible for your well-being while following this program. If a movement hurts anything in your body, don’t do it. Pain is not any part of the CTS format.

If you’re just starting, focus on moving your feet and the timing. The moves all repeat and should feel natural. And they build on each other, so we suggest you do them in the playlist order. As you become more comfortable with the workout, put more attention to dance and technique. Total workout time is 38 minutes.

Demonstration and explanation videos for the 25 Core CTS Combos linked to this workout are included when you have access to the instruction videos. If you are one of our past or present CTS’ers (class or workshop), contact Dr. Robin HERE for access!
