Fun, but not quite what I expected

"I was actually looking for a workout with this DVD, but while it's not anything close to some of the other dance workouts available, it provided a lot of useful information and hints for someone who's curious about burlesque and might want to play with it. The routines are fun - from the pure sensuality of the Honey routine, to the more risque Spice routine, and will kick up the inner diva - especially Jo's emphasis on sensuality and how to pose. The Spice routine used moves that I had learned from the belly dance workouts I've been using. Jo is ridiculously cute and has some feistiness, which made it even more enjoyable. The costuming and tassel twirling hints were fun - and I look forward to using her suggestions to make life more entertaining."
Truly sensual and accessible to many body types...

"Some dance videos aren't ideal for all body types. Jo Weldon's "Honey and Spice" is not one of these. This is a delightful and easy to follow overview of two distinctly different burlesque dances. Jo's instructional style is sassy without being brash or disrespectful. She encourages dancers to love their curves. The warmup is especially beautiful and easy to pick up, even for beginners to burlesque. The performances, demonstrations, step-by-step breakdowns accompany several costuming tips. The music is heavenly and not some of the overused, cheesy "burlesque" tunes you'd expect to hear in a cheap club. Jo gives a true touch of class to this beautiful, yet often misjudged dance style. Highly recommended for beginners and advanced dancers of all shapes and sizes! A true winner."
