I really enjoyed this product, especially the fact that you don't have to listen the the instructions over & over, you can just listen to the music & follow along. The only downside I think, is that a beginner might find it differcult to keep up without tripping over their feet, it would have helped if the steps were broken down, but with enough practice it will come.
I really like this video. I do five yoga, pilates, and aerobics videos religiously and I have added this one to my repertoire. I have no dance training and am really not a good dancer, but this is fun and a good workout. You will sweat especially during the Samba and the Jive. Most directions are clear and steps can be picked up easily after a couple tries. There are three dance instructors and each teaches one dance on their own and they teach the fourth dance together. My only complaint is Ashley's dirctions or lack there of. She is very fast and terrible at describing what she is doing. The hardest move of the video the camera is on her face as opposed to her feet. Otherwise, it's a great leg, butt, and core workout and entertaining. I would recommend this video, but make sure no one is around the first time you try this because you feel ridiculous! The challenge at the end if for someone who can really dance.
This DVD is great for those who like to dance and also want to exercise. The four dances, when played in a row, offer a good workout and really do get the heartrate going. My only complaint with the DVD is that some steps are not explained very well and I had a hard time figuring out what the dancers were doing.
I love the concept of the DVD because I'm a huge Dancing with the Stars fan. However, the routine is fairly hard to follow and little instruction is given for the more difficult moves. I think if the hosts would go slower and really show the viewers how to do a particular dance, this video would have been better.
