Hey guys , I wanted to share some para para dances you can try :)

If you guys are reading this and haven't read the first post I made , read this http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=218838

I went through some para para dances and I wanted to share them with you ^.^ I put them from easy , to ARE YOU FREAKING INSANE ?!

Easy -

Hinoi team - King kong this dance is very easy to learn , and it's fun ( it also toned me a bit in 2 days :P )

Step by step tutorial - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FX2pccOuMik

Link to king kong - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dhp-bFLZtOk


Haruhi something something (I forgot the name -sorry) - greed's accident it's really fun and the music is catchy :bashful:

Link to Greed's accident - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bu4DAPlcPIg


Medium -

Caramelldansen para para - it's fast and involves moderate movement :P

Link to Caramelldansen - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9XcRJpgJV0


ARE YOU FREAKING INSANE ?!

Haruhi something something - Toroden good lord.There is ALOT of feet , leg , arm , movement , I can't get past 10 seconds XDD

Link to Toroden - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eypvvSSJrY


Hinoi team - Night of fire This one has alot more movement than King Kong in my opinion , there is alot of arm movement , but nonetheless fun

Link to night of fire - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1o1LgGlV88



I might record a how-to for King kong or greed's accident soon :)


If a dance is too hard for you , slow down , just sit down for a second , and watch the dancers , click pause and play repeatedly like I do XDD.Also if you're doing a medium dance , go down to easy and learn those.

Also don't rush yourself or you will be sore in the morning (trust me ) and don't push yourself , if you can't do the dance , find another :)

strech your arms and legs out before beginning too , or else it's hard to dance :P

I'll be happy to answer your guy's questions about the para para dances or if you need help with them.Good luck :drink:

Also , let me know how you guys are doing if you're doing this for excercising :D

Dynamite by ACE from Para Para Paradise 6 is easily my favorite ever.

Sadly this is the only online video I can find. I have a DVD somewhere (actually, it might be a VCD, I dunno)

Dancing is really fun, and good exercise *_* I especially like Hello!Project dances *_* well, right now, I'm doing these dances, for anyone interested:

Easy:

Hard:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILcgEV5-ky0 <---This one, the dance itself is not really hard, the hard part is doing it with heels x.x;
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRL0W4JaMFM
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbQ0yFzLst8

The ones labeled as "hard" I do 2 times each, for a total of 10 dances a day~ it has worked out great for me, but I'm not aiming to lose weight, instead I'm trying to build muscle in my legs o.O however, my sister has lost weight and toned her body with these dances *_*
Well, if anyone likes it, I recommend you try it, it's good and really fun XD

In terms of how to shed weight there are also different strategies. Globally most people say cutting food intake is the best answer, followed by 43 percent who do more exercise.

Night of Fire was my first! X)

gyaru factory is a website that has a big list of para para, and there's a eurobeat channel on youtube called sebofficial.

although para para is a good upper body exercise, you're not really doing much with you're lower body exercise. if you want a REAL dance workout? get one of the dance workout videos from dancing with the stars. Julianne Hough's is very awesome but it's no para para, definitely not.

i bet if you play back the para para video at 2x speed you'll get a good workout.

Bad Apple! The video is mirrored for easier learning lol :'D It's going to take forever until I master this one (if I ever master it... I don't think I will ._,), it is like para para on expert mode or something haha ._. But I bet it's good exercise x'3 So, if you want a challenge, this is the dance for you (:

Personally, I'd say switch Greed's Accident and Caramelldansen. I've done both and taught them both to people who have never done para para before, and Caramelldansen is probly the easiest para para out there, it's fast, but the foot movements stay the same, and the arm movements repeat and there's not a lot of different ones. Greed's accident is more moving the feet and coordinating and such :3 I also didn't find Night of Fire that hard xD Definitely a challenge, but again, the movements repeat, so it's mostly just coordinating ^^

My friends and I have been doing para para for a while. Love and Joy was my first one xD

Thus far I've done (all links mirrored),

Easy:

Make sure to get mirrored videos when learn a dance or you'll learn it backwards! :0 Or else mirror it as you go (which is harder xD). And if you need a little extra help, slowed and mirrored helps a lot :3 I posted a few I know are good, pitch change can be a problem with some xD;

I've also done Sway, and Shinigami Haken Kyoukai no Theme but there not technically para para. Sway is from Just Dance 2 and the game is basically the american version of the Harhui Suzumia dance game and you can just search the games on youtube and find the dances! The Shinigami dance is from the Kuroshitsuji 2 musical and is sooooo fun! Difficult, but really fun x3

Shinigami haken Kyoukai no Theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bu7VYlfwyQs also helpful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvEFy7_TMsA

It's funny how there's a forum on doing para para for cardio, which I pretty much do everyday lol. I mostly do RedKunoichiLexy's (http://www.youtube.com/redkunoichilexy) routines for exercise.

I don't really have any difficulty levels but I'll try my best.

Easy:

Fly Me to the Moon (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-5ePsYBYeA)
Dam Dadi Do (Squash Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDFjZB6EJOQ): Sorry, no video, just the song.
Hot Vampire (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZXzQiEoxSk): Not really hard, but it's faster than the easier routines.

Hard:
Night of Fire (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1o1LgGlV88)
Bad Romance (Dark Intensity Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQHfGHsKKzo)
Russian Roulette (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPxn3Kc2q6Q)
Only My Railgun (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqx8tAdID9w): Sorry, no video again, just the song.
Just Be Friends (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zbr9d7gmDg): Doesn't look hard at first, but it gets complex as it goes.
Sandstorm (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cbw09gYhzNE): Best workout out of these routines :bigtu:

It's not para para but there are Zumba classes and videos you can order that help work everything, not just your upper half like a lot of para para will do.
