Frustrating waste of money
J. Riese | Portland, OR | 12/11/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I consider myself a pretty average dancer and I thought it would be fun to learn these routines to some pretty well-known songs. I've bought other dance instruction videos and found it easy to learn and remember the routines. But when I started with Darrin's Dance Grooves, he moved way too fast and didn't really explain what he was doing. The choppy camera angles made it difficult to see his feet and body to figure out what he was doing. Without even explaining what foot to start on or which way to face it was extremely frustrating trying to figure out if he was mirroring what you should do or not. So even after figuring all of this out, I got about half of the routine down, but by the time I got to the end, I didn't remember what the first 8-count was, not to mention what came next. It was also difficult to switch from his slower count to the tempo of the music. All in all I was extrememly frustrated and disappointed and plan on selling this DVD at a garage sale or re-gifting it as a practical joke."
Don't waste your time with Darrin's Dance Grooves

"I have wanted this DVD for years, thinking it looks really fun to do. I was extremely disappointed when I received it as a gift. For one, although the product description says you'll learn these three dances, you only learn the chorus to the three songs mentioned here--not the whole dances.

Secondly, the video moves way too fast for a novice and even a somewhat experienced dancer.

Third, the video shots are terrible--for example, he's teaching you the moves and the camera angle is only showing his upper body while his lower body is moving (and you can't see it).

Fourth, he doesn't mirror the viewer- he says "right" and uses his right, which means it's opposite for the person viewing it (you'd intuitively want to mirror him, using your left, but it adds confusion).

Lastly, the instruction is just plain bad. I have dance experience, and this was beyond horrible--he just counts (not easy for someone without experience especially) and doesn't describe or say anything about the movements. Just "1, 2, 3..." as he dances with it.

I'd highly recommend the Jamie King Rock Your Body DVD over this one!"
Don't Buy It!

"I had this DVD right when it came out years ago. I think I tried watching it once or twice but did not even get through watching it all because I was so frustrated. I was in dance and thought I picked up dances pretty quickly, but I'm not superhuman! First of all, the dancers and Darrin are facing you, so you have to first try to figure out the move, then make it backwards; even if you decide to mirror their image, it's confusing because Darrin always says directional cues, so it doesn't work if you try to mirror them. Then, you better get the move right the first time because there is no hope for you if you don't get the move down perfectly immediately. It's a joke. The lack of repeating any moves before moving on is incredibly frustrating and difficult, even for experienced dancers. I felt like I was watching a dance class practice their routine that they have done a million they were showing off and not concerned about the viewer trying to learn the dance. RIDICULOUS! I got so annoyed after trying to learn the dances when I found the DVD years later, I literally bent the DVD in half and threw it away. I thought if I pawned it off, it wouldn't be fair to the poor soul who bought it."
