Moving to Mozart? As fitness concepts go, it certainly sounds more appealing than, say, "Moshing to Metallica," and instructor Ann Smith's program succeeds admirably on its own terms. Herself a former dancer, Smith touts t... more »
Ann Smith- Moving to Mozart

"I read with dismay some of the other more negative reviews of this video and understand if you are used to moving mindlessly to fast, aerobic-inducing music, this may not be for you. But, in defense of Mrs. Smith's unique exercise video, this one time professional ballet dancer, now teacher of over 30 years, found that this video was gentle, yet thorough on the body, resulting with intelligent movement based on many years experience in the field. The accompanying music was wonderful, appropriate, and classic like the movement. I would say that is perfect for the aging baby boom generation, or younger people who need a gentle introduction to exercise. Whatever the buyer profile, I found it a welcome addition to my 20 some exercise videos."
Lovely, inspiring, physically rejuvinating

"I had the pleasure of participating in a 40 minute workshop with Mrs. Smith at a YMCA in Nashville this weekend. Her peace, elegance, and confidence inspired our entire class! The stretches she led us in felt wonderful and were very relaxing. We even used movement across the floor, like ballerinas, to stretch our bodies and create energy throughout our bodies. I give Ann Smith an A+++ for inspiration, thorough stretching and a peace generator!"
Not worth the money

"I bought this along with her other two stretch videos as a four pack set for 29.99. I feel I overpaid at that price, let alone buying separate videos. While I like doing the stretches, the two videos that make up this set are redundant--one is all you need, and the actual workout ends up being only about 8 minutes--I wish I had known how short it was before I made my purchase."

"Ann Smith speaks to the Baby Boomer generation or those of us who may have neglected our body over the years or even pushed too hard. Not wishing for any more jumping aerobic videos, I choose the Ann Smith one and am delighted with the music as well as the gentle stretches she demonstrates. Is it the best on the market? Perhaps not the best but a nice, gentle addition to keep me moving and exercising."
