"I have three other Dance with Lisa workouts, Salsa, SalsaII, 5 day Latin dance, and this is my fourth addition to my collection of workouts by Lisa Nunziella.
There are several things that I like about all of Lisa's videos that don't seem to change: Her cuing is excellent, her form is impeccable and she knows the subject matter. Unlike many workouts that slow the workout to a crawl at the beginning to show you the steps, she includes a separate section that is called "explain the steps", she breaks down each step and goes through it twice, slowly, so that you can understand the basics and have it slow enough to follow. This is very good because then you can just go straight through the workout at full tempo once you have the steps without having to slow down at all. I would highly recommend doing that section first, because you will probably still not have the steps on the first try. This one took me about 5 tries to completely have the steps down, and I do dance workouts often. I like the fact that I can continue to practice and then play the work-out and hopefully catch on to another move that I didn't quite have down the day before.
This workout is different than her others in the fact that it is more of a modern/jazz type on the dance section. I loved the moves, but it easily could have had about 10 more minutes of routine to really be more to my liking.
The workout is broken down into several segments: warm-up (about 11.5 minutes), Dance (11 minutes-too short in my opinion), Sculpting (9 minutes), Strength (8 minutes) and cool down (9 minutes), which is a bit under 50 minutes for the entire workout.
The dance is my favorite, and though the moves looked challenging at first a few times through the "explain the steps" section and doing the workout a few days and I was starting to "get it". Sculpting workout & strength workout can be viewed together or as part of the enire workout and work well with each other. In these segments you will notice some pilates moves for abs, some yoga moves (down dog), and plies from dance, as well as pushups and tricep dips.
I found that the workout, though not long, was a good workout, I got a little aerobic, some abs and arms in, and felt great afterwards. This will definitely be in the rotation for a while as many workouts are aerobic or strength only and I liked the combination of all three.
If you have done Lisa's videos before this one is a little different, but I liked it very much and you probably will too. If you are looking for something that combines several different types of exercise, this one might be something to just put a little different spin to your next workout.
Dance with Lisa and get your body into shape and have a little fun while you are at it!"
