A good teaching video for children & early teens

"I got this video for my 5 1/2 yr old to begin to get some experience in "party" dancing. The moves are very easy to follow. She loves the video, as does her younger 3 1/2 yr old sister. They have watched it 5 or 6 times now and still love it. While the oldest is not a master of the moves yet, it is exactly what I was looking for. It is a video that introduces her to some dance steps, while encouraging her to create her own. It allows her to have fun (not sit in front of the TV) and learn some dance moves at the same time. I would expect that if she continues to watch the video that it would help her get some confidence and be able to dance. Although the video is not necessarily for 5 year olds, she is able to "try" the moves and should be able to get them down after practicing. I think this video has "staying power" -- they will use it for a few years.
I would recommend this for someone looking for a basic dance video. It is good for 5 year olds on up to early teens. (My husband and I were even trying out some moves!) Keep in mind it is hip hop, not the waltz. It is good for kids learning to dance with other kids. And I agree with another reviewer, I was pleased that it is not too racy for childen -- it is in quite good taste.
After they get the moves down, I will try the Hip Hop Shop 2."

"This is a fun video, especially for kids in need of physical activity. My 5 year old daughter and her eight year old friend had a great time practicing the moves. Neither was able to get it on the first couple of tries, but after practicing 4 or 5 days they have it now. The video is about an hour long and is more fun when done with at least one other person."
