"My 9 year old daughter begged me to buy this DVD for her. Although potentially enjoyable, the moves are difficult and even I had trouble following along......."

"This video lasted about 15 minutes and featured one very-hard-to-follow dance. Do not waste your money. I am very disappointed that I bought this for my daughter."
Amatuer dancer, no dance instruction, only 15 min including

"The menu gives only the workout & Bonus. I didn't check out the bonus, you'll see why. There are no chapter choices.
The production values were good, good lighting, good stage, good editing & camera work & sound. They even tried their best to make Paige look good by editing her dance withe her changing outfits mid dance & moving camera back & forth.
Starts with Paige showing off her dance moves. At first I wasn't sure if that was the routine or not since she she moved slower & stiffer then how the dance moves are usually executed. Pagie's dance ability would be above average at a local club, but she does not have enough talent, fluidity, grace, enthusiasm, style or coordination to teach anyone how to dance. She reduced any great moves to a lame simplified core. Hence thinking she was showing modified version that you will learn. I was wrong, that was her at her best.
It then has about 2 min of her drawing on paper with her 2 guy & 2 girl "friends" her age & some stiff acting with some young kids asking what they are doing. "Were about to dance... we have a lot of work to do...."
The teaching (if you call it that) is very quick. "Ok, stand like that, now strike 3 poses..." (Prearranged old school stage posing) "Like this?" "Perfect, next..." She then shows 20!!!!! moves in 7/8 time at ONCE. "Ok, stand, jump out, jump in, step out & in, strike a pose, girls only nod your head & shoulder, boys stay, step kick, side up, walk in a circle, jump back...." She was barely slower teaching then she was dancing her normal speed. You then do it 1x w/music... learn another 20! steps at once, do it 1x with music, learn another several steps & then do the WHOLE routine from the top about....5x? then they get all dressed up like they're on stage & do it all again about 10x. That's it.
The song is bubblegum pop cute, you dance to the chorus over & over & over.....
There were some great moves, but they way she (the other dancers has the same amount of talent) did it, she took all the coolness out of it. She obviously has had professional dance instruction, she called out some ballet French names & she does call out ALL of the dance moves with great timing when doing the dance. She just has no style or much grace or spirit or love for dance. Or understands you can't just show something once in almost true tempo time & expect a person to know how to move their feet.
This dvd was only 16 min INCLUDING her showing off in the beginning, the (what seemed like) 2 min of her drawing with friends & bad acting & credits."
