Not like their bellydance videos

"I have given this workout 3 stars because I am sure there are some people who would like it, but if I based it on how much I liked it, it would probably get 1 star. I bought it because I loved the twins' previous bellydance workout videos. However, this is nothing like their other videos, so I hope no-one else makes the same mistake. There is no bellydance in this video. It is a dance form based on hip-hop and an intense form of Indian dance. But for someone who is not familiar with the Indian dance form, it felt like it was entirely hip-hop, which I did not like. It is undoubtedly a fantastic cardio workout and had me sweating, but I just hated the dance moves, the music, and pretty much everything about it. I couldn't wait until it was over and I never watched it again. So, basically, this is not for fans of bellydance, but I am sure that fans of hip-hop would like it."

"I bought this DVD because I like Masala Bhagra fitness video. It was difficult to keep up with the twins and not enough room in my living room to do it. Before I knew it the dvd was done. It did get my heart rate up but for only 20 mins I try to keep it up for at least 30-45. Overall it's just another workout dvd in my collection that I probably won't go back to."

"This DVD is entertaining and a good workout. The time really flew--when I work out, I'm usually watching the clock and bored. Today I was engaged the entire time and surprised when the cool-down started--it seemed as if we'd only just begun dancing!
Note: The case lists that this is a combination of hip-hop, martial arts, and Indian dancing. I really only saw the bangra in the DVD itself."

"I love bhangra music and dancing- this dvd was very much a teaser... you only learn enough to feel lke you saw a trailer for a workout dvd. There are very brief warm-up and cool-down that (do but) barely use yoga moves. And then three short 3-4 move "routines" that definately get you jumping around and work out your back legs well from the jumping but as far as taking them into performance or the dance floor- you probably wouldn't. The workout felt good- my muscles felt really warm and my legs surely received some toning but as I am more interested in dance as an artform as opposed to a mere excercise... this dvd disappointed me. I would recommend instead, The Bollywood Workout. That one again really works the legs and challenges you to let loose and laugh with your whole body- a great workout but feels much more like you just had a dance party. It is more fun and more useful for broadening your dance move vocabulary."
