If you have carpet where you work out, this is not the dvd for you. You do sliding back and forth and end up dragging. It would be great if you had hard wood floors or tile.

"This video is very fun and keeps up my heartrate. It might be a little difficult for people with "two left feet" or who haven't done much dancing or aerobics. The instructor was great and I thought she broke it down well, not so slow that your heartrate went down, but not to fast to get lost. I highly recommend this tape if you love dancing and want a good workout!"
Great fun, good old school moves, but needs more breakdown

"Julianne Arney has been around with her great, friendly, bubbling personality. She's a good dancer, but in this dvd she calls at the cues as she does them & only goes 3/4 speed at slowest, never half the speed. She only breaks down the moves into 2-3x layers at most.
If she would teach in 1/2 tempo a few times & practice each finished move several times before learning the next, it would keep the heart rate up, easier to follow. Yes, there'd be less moves, but least you could keep up & work more on the details rather then being lost on the basic move itself.
The moves are old school, cool & well known, not too watered down, but also then calls for more practice.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to anyone who wants to shape up in a fun way! It was my first home workout DVD ever and at first I was intimidated by all the moves, but because the instructor is so clear and good at cueing, each dance workout took about a week to learn. To me, this is pretty good because I have no previous dance experience at all. I did all three workouts plus the bonus workout track everyday for about two months. It's a great way to work up a sweat and learn how to dance! The camera work is professional and the lighting is bright and the studio is spacious. The music stays subtle (it's mostly there to keep your rhythm) and the background dancers inspire you to find your own style.
Each routine lasts 10 minutes. The first workout is basic hip hop moves. I used it as a warm up session. The second workout is more MC Hammer style moves, and a little more intense. The third workout is modern/old-school styled dancing and gives the best workout. The bonus workout is dance-party style and also rather intense. All four routines are excellent to get your muscles pumping, but it's up to you how much you put into it -- the better you know the moves, the more intense the workout becomes. The instructor never looses her breath regardless of the intensity of the movements, (she also gives just enough encouragement plus adds some humor along the way) and the two backup dancers keep up equally well. I learned the first routine thoroughly before I moved onto the next, and just added more moves as the days passed by. I think it's a wonderful way to get your daily exercise. Because of this first workout DVD, I've been inspired to continue home workouts."
