A Great Way to Get Started

"If you've never used a dance/exercise DVD or haven't taken an exercise class, this DVD is a great, nonthreatening way to start and to get a reasonable aerobic boost. The instructor keeps it simple and walks you through the moves. This was important to me, a baby boomer and first-timer who had just been disappointed by another dance/exercise video I had bought, by another instructor, who zipped through the moves so fast that I couldn't learn them. I used to dance casually when I was younger, like most of us, but it had been a long time since I'd had to think consciously about coordinating arm and leg movements. This instructor makes it easy. If you spazz out on a couple of the moves the first time, don't worry -- you'll get them the second time around. Again, she keeps it nice and simple. She also does warm-up and cool-down/stretching at the beginning and end, respectively. Note: This DVD isn't for people who are in gung-ho competition with themselves and want to collapse in an exhausted heap at the end of the workout and lose 10 pounds in two days. It's for the rest of us. (P.S. If you're a first-timer and have a hectic lifestyle, like me, beware of the dance/exercise DVDs out there for "busy people"; e.g., the ones that cram everything into 10-minute aerobic sessions. As mentioned, the one I got didn't spend nearly enough time on teaching the moves, and I ended up not using it.)"
Great exercise program!

"This video is very good if you are starting out on an exercise program. The moves are easy and it is enjoyable. It does get your heart pumping, yet it is relaxing in a way, too. It is adaptable to your level of exercise. I would buy it again and highly recommend it. You will like it especially if you think the usual aerobics videos are too fast or too confusing."
Great for older people

"I guess when I saw the title "Cardio Dance" I thought that it would be for all fitness levels, but it is not. I am an advanced exerciser who loves doing really fast dance workouts. However, my mom who is in her late fifties tried this DVD and loved it. She does it all the time now. After you do an easy warm-up, Mirabai Holland, the teacher, teaches you easy moves to do that are great for older people who can't do the really fast DVDs. The hardest move is a knee lift, and you could probably modify it to not have to do it. The moves are taught, then done a lot of times that it made me bored, but older people will love the repetition as it will help them learn the steps. There is a cool-down at the end with a bit of stretching, as well. My mom's heart rate really gets up, but it doesn't affect mine at all. It is a really short workout that older people and beginners to exercise will appreciate, but intermediate and advanced exercisers, go somewhere else."
Too Many Steps

"Exercise moves gently from start to finish, however it has too many steps to learn. I frequently miss some of the later movements simply because I cannot remember what comes next."
