Movie Reviews

Even better than the Ballet Workout!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Melissa Lowe tops herself with this sequel workout tape which emphasises several major exercises, and all of the positions. However, this tape also has a downfall, Ms. Lowe doesn't explain the steps as well as she did in the first video. But, if you are wanting to start ballet or need a guide to practice at home, I recommend her to everyone!"
A good follow-up to the first Ballet Workout

"If you don't have any ballet training, this video probably isn't for you. If you do, though, it's a good follow-up to the first Ballet Workout. The exercises are a little more elaborate and faster-paced -- also more engaging -- than in the Workout I. There is more emphasis on balance, and a greater variety of steps. M. Lowe does not explain or demonstrate the exercises in advance, which is what would make this tape frustrating for a beginner. (But it would get pretty boring listening to her explain them every single time you ran through the tape, which is why I think she leaves out the explanations. The first few times through, I just watched each exercise and then rewound.) The pink and blue leotards are indeed headache-inducing, as someone else commented. Overall, though, it's a good ballet class for intermediate or advanced dancers, with a good model to follow."
Melissa does a great job teaching beginners to advanced.

"I love the fact that she has people facing forward and backward, giving you the ease to follow along. Having taken minimal ballet I find it easy to follow, yet very challenging with an overall body work out."
Very disappointed

"I fail to find any value in this video for a beginner or advanced student. At 39 years old I classify myself as a beginner, though I've taken many classes. I enjoy ballet for it's posture and toning benefits. An advanced student would be bored by this workout-- #1- Very poor stretching and warm-up. #2- Other than a lenghthy discription of the english translation for the french term before each step, the instructor fails to give the most basic instructions--(4xxx followed by a x in 1st, 2nd, 5th repeat with the left side.) #3- May as well be using a book as the instructor doesn't call out the steps as your doing them-- nor the basic reminders of "stretch your spine, pull in your stomach, etc" #4- The many dancers and camera angles I found distracting #5- Certainly not the cardio workout I've received in past classes or even with a book. In short I can't think of anyone who would find this tape beneficial."
