This dvd stars Sabrina Bryan of Cheetah Girls fame. That show is on Disney Channel and I think it is aimed at tweens, so I ordered it for my seven-year old daughter, who waited expectantly for its' arrival. BUT when she tried to use the video, we found that for a girl of her age and abilities (she has a modest dance background) it was nearly impossible to do. The combinations are difficult, not broken down, and Sabrina does not cue well. It would take a lot of PATIENCE and repetition of the workouts in order to make them doable. For a kid this young that's not the most realistic, depending on the child. On the positive, Sabrina stresses having fun, moving your body, and being comfortable being YOU. We are going to shelve this one for a while and re-visit later.

This teaches some really great dance moves. IMHO it is too difficult for a younger girl, but would probably be great for a teen or older. The moves are fun, clean & put altogether make a great dance. You can break each move down and learn them step by step in the 'extras' part on the DVD. They don't tell you that & you have to find your way to it, which is aggravating and why I deducted 1 star (also b/c it is geared toward girls and I think most younger girls, tweens and younger, wouldn't be able to keep up with these advanced moves). It's a very good work out, keeping you panting and heart rate up if you put yourself into it and really try. It's definitely a FUN way to get exercise. But, again, keep in mind these are kind-of advanced moves.

I love to dance, so I was excited to try it- The Pure Fun work out was great, and so was Dance Party once you know the moves. Full Blast is just about impossible for me though. My daughter was 14 when she first wanted this, and she liked it. I wouldn't reccomend it for anyone younger then 10. I honestly think it would be difficult for them. All in all, excellent video- The extras that I loved were Breaking Down the Moves (Necessary to complete the workout in my opinion) and Show Savvy- I learned some things on this one.

Another thing was this workout is difficult to complete on carpet because of the sliding. It would be best on tile/hard wood.

Too hard to follow -- even WITH dance training
E. Thayer | Mishawaka, IN USA | 01/04/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this DVD so my daughter and I could dance along together and get some exercise -- however it is far too difficult for a young person to follow, and get this -- even with my many years of dance training, it was too difficult for ME to follow! The moves are NEVER broken down by count, and the instruction is incredibly poor. Virtually every dance class I've ever taken - including Master classes - broke down moves by count, so you can be on time, "on" the music. Not so here. It felt muddled and confusing. Additionally, in the "instruction" segment, the moves are shown just once, from one angle, so if you aren't already familiar with the move shown, the guidance is inadequate.

It gets the two stars only for its appeal to teens & tweens, an underserved group when it comes to mixing exercise and fun. I'd like to see more dance/exercise videos for this age group, but PRODUCED BETTER."
Energizing and Fun!
E. Thayer | 04/05/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I totally love Byou! The music has a really energizing beat, and the dance moves are fun! It may take a little time to learn the moves, but if you keep practicing, you'll get them down, and it feels great when you can do the entire thing! I do think that the DVD should be used by girls who are around 11-13 (my age), because they are difficult at first. But all in all, Byou is a great workout with, as they say, "slamming dance moves and the hottest new music"!"
Fun and good exercise
Cheryl Yaeger | Brookline, MA | 02/05/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I don't like to exercise, but I do like dancing. I am out of the age range for this DVD, but I thought it looked like a fun way to learn dance steps. It is! As another reviewer mentioned, the steps are hard. The DVD obviously relies on viewers to pause and rewind, as it goes through many steps in a short period of time. That's ok -- it just means it will take longer for me to go through the DVD. Overall, I would definitely say it's worth the price and to just have a little patience learning the moves.

The special features are a bit unnecessary, as I'm not really a fan of Sabrina Bryan and don't really need to see her music video or any behind the scenes footage. The shoe shopping extra is also a bit lacking, as it never really mentions that there are special sneakers for dancing that the viewer may want to buy, and only really talks about regular sneakers."
