I hate to be harsh because I like the dance moves themselves, but wow, what an ill-conceived DVD. There is no warm up at the beginning, it's about 7 minutes in. The assumption of the instructor seems to be that everyone is well versed in dance moves and needs very little direction. The instructor seems more interested in making herself look good than in instructing. Seemed like all the logical stuff (like where the warm up goes, where the cool down goes, and where the skill levels of people using this DVD might be)was thought of as they were shooting the video.
Actually Pretty Good Workout

"The other people who rated this video complain that there was no break down of the dance steps. On my video there is a break down segment listed on the main menu list. Sure, it might have helped to have put this segment in front of the actual work out, but whatever. I must note that it might be helpful to simply watch the work out before attempting. It took me about a week to get the steps down. I still have a ridiculous look of freakish concentration on my face as I work through it, but I am confident that soon I will be more graceful and maybe capable of adding some of my own style and flare...or something. Get the video if you're not freaked about a challenge. If you like dance you'll enjoy it. Happy workouts to all!"
It does include a breakdown!

"There is a breakdown for the steps following the routine. I am a beginner to hip-hop, and though I thought the moves looked crazy, they're awesome! I began practicing them and now I'm getting pretty okay at them - you just have to stick with it! If you have two left feet, you may want to start with another video that is a little more basic...I don't know of any. However, if you have patience and perseverance with your dancing, I would highly recommend this DVD."
Helped me to get back in shape

"I love this video that I dance to it 3 times a week. I had a baby a year ago and it was so difficult to get back in shape but this video coupled with another pilates video did the trick. I love the fact that this video gives you the kind of cardio workout that is lengthening and not bulking. I tried other cardio videos such as taibo and kickboxing and I developed massive thighs. This video spends enough time on stretching that elongates your muscles. Also, if you concentrate on your core while doing the dance, you are guaranteed to lose a lot flab in the belly area without the painful and boring crunches. Sure, it was a bit difficult at first to follow the steps but after three sessions, the moves got a lot easier and more fun. One thing I must say this video is not- it is not boring. The steps are challenging enough that make you keep coming back to do the workout. The only thing I wish is different is the music half way through the session- didn't care for the beat. Other than this, I highly recommend it to folks who like to dance but have not ventured into hip hop. Once you get the steps, you'll take pride in knowing you can dance hip hop."
