"After reading the reviews I thought the DVD was going to be horrible, but it's actually pretty good, and so far one of the best instructional hip-hop videos I've seen (I own a Groovaloos DVD and Tina Landon DVD and have used Darrin's Dance Grooves), and the instruction is also better than some teachers I've taken classes from.
In general, nothing beats actually having a good teacher and choreographer so they can critique your form and technique. However, I very happy that the instructor, Dave Scott, DID give some tips on technique instead of only showing moves to copy. (The fundamentals section is too short, but pretty good). I only wish he gave more tips on technique.
He also breaks down routines at different tempos (which most instructional videos do not do), and this is essential! I think it's important to get the fundamental moves right at a slower tempo first, rather than rushing through the movements just to get through the song.
He does turn around from the camera a few times so you can follow the moves without confusing your left and right, but I wish he did that more.
The only main problem I had is that there are only two real routines you can learn, and that's it's not very "Take it to the Streets" oriented. No breakdancing instruction, really, or street dancing tips. So if you want to improve your breakdancing, this isn't the best DVD to buy.
Overall, it's a good DVD for the price and I would highly recommend for intermediate to advanced dancers looking to expand creative moves, improve their ticking/waving, and get ideas for choreography. For beginners, it would still be a good investment but will be fairly difficult. I would suggest that instead of matching the moves, it might be good to just mirror the instructor so you can at least get used to moving your body in certain ways."

"First off I'd like to say that You Got Served really was a horrible movie, but the choreography was very well done, which maybe evened it out to an okay movie, if they had just cut out all of the acting it would have been a good movie. Now what might be misleading with this DVD is that you may think that this DVD will give you all the routines, or at least the best routines from the movie, however they don't, the two routines they teach are the dance sequence with the all girl's crew and a routine from the semi-finals. The semi-finals routine however, isn't even Wade or Elgin's crew, its the routine with the crew that the choreographer, Dave Scott, was leading.Along with this there is a third routine that Dave Scott choregraphed, that wasn't in the movie, and what is almost a small documentary on some b-boys, b-girls, and krumpers. There is also a special feature where Omarion and Marques Houston do some cheesy talking and then Omarion does an okay job of freestylin.Now the best part of this DVD in my opinion, well perhaps the most well instructed, is the segment on how to tick and do the wave. I think that segment was very well done, even if it was kind of short. So If you want to learn/improve on ticking and waving, go ahead and get this DVD, but if you're lookin for the really badass routines from you got served, well...guess ur gonna have to look somewhere else."
Great instruction video

"Great video for beginners to learn sophisticated moves to take to the dance floor. Dave Scott is a very good instructor. The camera work isn't annoyingly fancy like other video's causing unnecessary rewinds to learn the moves."
Movie Great - Dance Video NOT

"I first watched the You Got Served movie and loved it. I love hip hop dancing and break'n and this movie rocked. It was a high energy movie. I loved the movie so much that once the You Got Served Take It To The Streets Dance Instructional Video came out, I had to have it. The Dance Instructional Video sucked. It is not for beginners. It is very fast paced and you have to do alot of rewinding to follow along. Dance video shows some routines they do in the movie but do not go in depth or break it out by steps. I was very dissapointed and feel that a better dance instructional video could have been made!"
