Movie Reviews

Fun to watch but.....
Vicki Licata | Northvale, NJ United States | 07/22/2006

"this is definitely NOT a DVD that I would recommend for beginners. If you don't have any hip-hop dance experience and hope to learn to freestyle from this, GOOD LUCK. I couldn't keep up. If you are a quick choreography learner, you'll love this a beginner I was lost and feeling like I was out of my element after 5 minutes. But as I mentioned before, it was fun to watch! He's an incredible dancer and watching the audition process was very cool."
This is no Darren's Dance Grooves

"Brian Friedman instructs you like you've been dancing for years...blazing through a routine in about 10 minutes. No matter what your dancing experience...I have a feeling you'll be very well acquainted with your rewind button once your through with this.

They tried to make things easier by mirroring the moves. When they say to move left on the screen, they will move to YOUR left and you will also...even though they are REALLY moving right, sounds easy enough, that is until you do moves that require you to turn sideways...they you can no longer mirror what they are doing. It's confusing trying to keep what they say and what they do in's confusing just trying to explain it, but you will see if you purchase this DVD."
Not for those who can't dance, but good for those who need g

"The menus give the choice of Play, Chapter selection (welcome, tryouts, training {learning the moves}, performance {before, 5 min show & after}, setup {2 or 5.1 sound sound, subtitles & commentary}, & special features {celebrity interviews, stretch & workout {8 min stretch 10 min abs, back toning workout}
Unlike most DVDs that teach you the moves in a favorite song, Brian does tell you when to kick, which foot, which hand, to scoop, turn around, etc. He doesn't just count like others *cough* Tina Landon *cough* or many others. He also cues YOUR left/right, not his.
This has almost 70 minutes of teaching you the moves for Ashanti's Rock Wit U, Mya's "My love is like wo", Britney's "overprotected" & Jamiroquai's "Canned Heat"
Some of the moves are very hard physically, like Jamiroquai's, but Brian's teaching is one of the best I've seen. I suggest you check out the dancing to see if you can do it first. Some of those moves I can't.
My only complaint is too much wild camera movement to make it look more cool.

You can see info & clip on collagevideo com or look up his name & Freestyle on youtube for clearer clips

Great Workout

"Not only do you learn choreography to songs like Overprotected by Britney and My Love is Like Wo by Mya, you get to see the whole process of audition and preparation to be a dancer for Brian Friedman. There is also interviews with the celebrities he has worked with and an actual warm-up exercise video included. My only problem with the main feature is the mirror-image used to make it. Unlike a video where if the subject spins right you do, everything goes the other way, so you'll have to actually listen and not just watch to get the choreography right."
