Liked the step guide, even though at first did not use. Later I did look at it, and liked the clarification it gave to dance steps. It felt like I got a decent workout, and mixed things up a bit.......so I will use again. When I got the steps down, it did really feel like I was dancing!! :)

"Dance off the Inches: Dance it off Ballroom's strongest point is that it makes you want to do it! Since I had already exercised for 30 minutes before popping in this DVD, I was so pooped I could hardly dance by the end but the desire to keep going was still there. The moves themselves impressed me. Some of the sample clips on this website for other Dance off the Inches videos tell me that the choreography is especially well done in Dance it off Ballroom. I am in a dance troupe and would generally not use "workout video moves" onstage, but will surely be taking some from this one. I liked the instruction of Kristina Milova as well, and caught on best by doing the actual workout, though the Step Guide definitely helped."
Fast-paced, true dance workout

"Kristina has a very sweet voice, good timing and good choice of words when instructing. The backup dancers can dance well, unlike other backup dancers in other workouts.
Step Guide 17 min - Kristina alone w/no music shows you how the moves look, first the lower body, then the upper body, slow then fast. Some moves she goes quick, others she really breaks down, though she goes from 1/4 speed straight to tempo which can be frustrating for those who've never danced or never tried dance dvds before.
Workout w/chapters 42 min - Unlike most Dance Off The Inches workouts, this has neither watered-down moves nor is it slow-paced for those who rarely workout. The dance moves are almost all very fast paced so it will take fast footwork & endurance. When Kristina adds a new move to the routine, she will break it down to ease into it.
If you only want to do part of the dvd workout, the first 2 chapters of warm-up & cha-cha moves are built up into a 15 min routine, the samba & jive chapters dance moves are put into a 22 min routine, and the cool down's 5 min. slow-paced moves are different so they can be used w/either.
Some of the dance moves are: volta, botafogo, lock step, side/front cuban, pas de bourree, kick ball change, heel toe heel, several triple steps, turns w/hip circles, etc.
This dvd is best for those who already own a few dance dvds, natural dancer, or taking classes, as well as those who can handle fast-paced aerobics.

Dancing experience is helpful

"I took dancing for around 14 years (8-22), so I was able to pick up on the footwork fairly quickly (just think: step, ball, change), and I am somewhat used to swiveling my hips. It was still challenging for me and fun to learn the routines. I think it may be hard for people without any dance experience whatsoever. I did not watch the 10 minute tutorial that breaks down each move--I was able to pick it up just in the routine. This is a fun break from some of my weight intense workouts, and it does get my heart pumping. Plus, the girls in the back obviously aren't ballroom dancers, so I don't feel completely awkward with some of the moves I've never done."
