"I like all her DVDs and was eager to try this one, but I was disappointed because it was hard for me to follow her. And although I did have my sweat, I wish I didn't feel so out of sink with the steps. The DVD is an inspiration, she is wonderful, but I have a long, looong way to go before I get to move as easily as they do. If you are familiar with ballet moves, than you will probably love this workout."

"This will burn fat on your legs for sure. There are some ballet moves and regular style aerobic exercises to tone your legs. The ballet moves are plies, releves, and chases etc to get legs long and lean. But, Leisa makes it easy-to-follow by introducing new moves at half-tempo and using straight-forward cuing. You can choose whether or not to do additional hops etc for extra burn. The toning section is all standing barre work (you may need a good sturdy chair). She also makes this fun and interesting so you hardly know (till the next day) that you were working out so hard. Be warned! - you will be sore."
You should know how to dance...

"If you even slightly have 2 left feet this video is going to be a challange to keep up with. The instructor uses dance terms and you'll learn a whole new vocabulary with this DVD! I had such a hard time keeping up and I've tried doing the video 3 times. It was discouraging to be honest. You'll begin each new move with her telling you the name but you spend all your time trying to learn the moves that you might forget the names. And when you get into combos all she does is tell you the names of the moves before you do them so if you've forgetten anything it's going to be a workout just trying to keep up! You better keep your eyes AND ears open. It's a good workout overall."
