This DVD is definitely not for people who have not taken formal dance.

What I like about this dvd is that it combines cardio, 5 different 10 minute segments, which you can combine for desired lengths, and then as a bonus an 18 minute, body toning and stretching segment which also doubles as the cool down. It is the best cued stretching I have seen, the different yoga and pilate poses, were better explained, body alignment and breathing than I have ever heard before, and even on the first time, I could acheive better results than experienced before. So one that I will definitely keep and use regularly. 4 stars!!
I love this DVD! Lost 60 lbs. so far...

"It is usually pretty hard for me to stay motivated with a cardio workout. However, I can do this DVD all the time. I consider myself an advanced beginner, and this DVD was perfect and I can see myself growing with and putting in more effort to make it even more challenging. It's not too hard but the choreography is intermediate level, so if you're not too coordinated you would have to stick with it a little bit longer to get it. However, you will work up a sweat even as your fitness level increases.
I have a dance background and she lost me for a few moves, but it was so fun that I just kept going until I got the hang of it. None of the movements are really high impact and this is great if your knees sometimes bother you. There is a lot of hip shaking, and you should feel free to just let loose and enjoy yourself.
The instructors are really upbeat without being too over the top and give great directions. They do not break the moves up so slowly that your heartrate goes down. The only problem I have is that there are brief stops between the various dance sections that give tips about drinking water, eating right, etc. I continue to march during this section so that my exercise is not interrupted.
It is so much fun. The DVD is broken up into five ten minute sessions: dance jazz, tribal funk, dance party, latin, and dance funky. There is also a warmup and cooldown. Using a feature on the DVD called Choose Your Cardio you can select how many segments you want do- in any order you desire. This keeps you from getting bored! I highly recommend this workout. :) Enjoy!"

"This is another good workout from the people at Shape. It's fun and motivating and actually enjoyable (where some aren't). It starts with a 5 minute warm-up, 55 minutes doing floor work and then a 5 minute cool down (there is also a bonus standing floor workout - about 20 minutes). The primary workout is dance-based aerobics - ten minutes each of jazz, dance party, Latin, funky and tribal. Then there is a pilates/yoga relaxing toning workout. Both instructors are the same as the other workout dvd's and they do great cueing again. With this dvd you can also do the workouts in any order - I find this helps prevent the bordom that comes from repetitive workouts of the same dvd."
Good workout once you learn the routines

"This DVD offers a solid cardio workout, though I understand the frustration of many other viewers. Michelle Dozois offers user-friendly instruction, where Lisa Wheeler tends to just perform a movement and expect the viewer the catch on. The routines are learnable, so don't give up! The pilates segment afterward is a great idea, but Lisa moves from one position to the next so quickly that I don't expect you get much benefit. I'd award Michelle 5 stars, and and Lisa, 3."
