Two good routines, maybe?

"Okay, so if you're looking for one or two routines to dance with and impress your friends, or you just wanna learn some moves- get the video. But if you want to learn long full flat out, good lookin' and well choreographed dances, don't buy it.
Only three dances have good teaching and reviewing. They're all counted out in 8's, but the ones taught by Justin he just teaches you the moves and goes right through it instead of doubling back and doing it again. I suggest having a DVD player that can rewind. There is one popping and locking segment, but it's taught by Justin and is kinda hard to get down. One of the well taught ones is with a bunch of kids and is slower and more juvenile, but would be great for 4-8 year olds looking to jam.
The dances aren't outdated, but they're not the most recent routines. It's a pretty good dvd to go by, memorize some of the dances and use those moves to spice up your jammin' at a dance. I've learned three of the routines and when I go to dances, I mix up the moves I've learned in those dances and add some of my own.
Overall the moves are easy even if it takes a bit to learn them, and I'd suggest it for a beginner hip hop person who wants to delve into it and learn some moves."
Not worth it

"There's no instruction to this video. It does not break down each step. They show you each consecutive move but if you're a novice dancer it would be very difficult to pick up the dances/moves correctly. If you are trying to learn the steps you must reverse the movements as the video is filmed entirely facing the dancer. Each routine is taught so fast it requires the viewer to stop and rewind frequently. Bottom line: if you want to learn to hip hop, find a different video!"
