Movie Reviews

Slow tempo real latin dancing for beginner exercisers
Lena, LMT | Nassau, NY | 04/10/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is from Cal Pozo who has many dance instruction old-style & also produced many workout dvds over the years.
The production quality is professional. The music does drown out Lisa Wheeler a bit, I especially hard trouble with what the name of the dance steps were. The set is very sci-fi modern with a drummer in the back which makes no sense. There are 4 backup woman who can dance pretty well, they have good form overall, some dance some steps better then others & vice versa. I think one of the backups is Joby Brava (I couldn't find the credits on the dvd)
Warm-up: 7 min Cal Pozo w/4 backup women w/o Lisa shows you most of the steps in almost normal tempo, only slightly slower.
Salsa: 10 min
mambo, salsa, a sorta box step, a step out pose move, etc.
Cha-Cha: 10 min
cha-cha w/salsa steps, cuban hip rolls, etc.
Samba, Salsa, Cha-Cha: 10 min
hip figure 8s,Cumbia, Brigaton???? hip rolls, samba lunges, samba chest pumps, etc.
Cool Down/Rumba: 4 min
Lisa alone with small dance & real stretching for the first time on this dvd

Bonus: 7 min
Cal Pozo & partner showing how to dance salsa with partner showing basic steps, under arm turn, cross step lead. They teach both guy & girl & the music they dance to when showing full tempo dancing demo is much better then the music from the workout. This is one of the least boring dance instructions I've seen.

Good dance form from the dancers
Almost perfect production quality
A lot of good practice of steps before moving on
Lack of detailed teaching, it could use a separate section for teaching like Zumba does
Lack of enthusiasm or heart from the dancers, seemed more a chore almost
Music is almsot disco, lacks a beat, almsot elevator style
Dance never goes to full fast Latin tempo, almost slow, you don't get get hot or break a sweat.

This is best for beginners looking for easy workout & who can learn dance moves w/limited teaching. The idea is great, but because of the cons it's not going to get it's target audience.
