Not for dancers who don't need to learn this.
Mary Raine
Like the other person said in her review, I thought it might get better with practice but mostly it was just frustrating.

This may be a fine video otherwise, but the music issue was a dealbreaker for me.

I enjoyed Patricia Moreno's new DVD, but it was confusing at first. Each segment focuses on jazz, Latin, and hip-hop, and runs about 20 minutes each. It runs a lot quicker than her previous dance DVDs, and the jazz and hip-hop dances aren't really broken down as slowly as before. There is a ten-minute opening which shows the basics, but it moves rapidly in the last ten minutes. It may take a few tries to get the dance steps down to do it without feeling tripped up. It's good to do new routines based on different dance styles (and as the title says, most of the dances focus on the strength of the stomach and flexibility of the hips). The music for the Latin segment is good, but there should've been a better hip-hop music choice. The hip-hop dancing reminded me of Jennifer Lopez's style and it's fun to imitate. The jazz dancing is focused on isolations and precision and is the most difficult in my opinion on the DVD.

There are good dance routines on this DVD, but it's not as slow or simple as Patricia's previous DVDs. Maybe she assumed that people familiar with her dance DVDs wouldn't have too much of a problem, and while there are familiar moves, it still was a little confusing. Hopefully, as I continue it it will feel better.

I love Patricia's body awareness & patience on her first two dance workouts. Most complaints was that she over taught when given 60 min to do a routine & 30 min faster instruction was fine. Well, some producer took that too far to heart.
Here, Patricia still has great body awareness, and does remind you proper alignment when she can & that was one of the only reasons I could follow. While the production is professional, the camera is zoomed into Patricia's face/shoulders too much or keeps slowly circling around her or different angles on to the three backup female dancers or the one male dancer. I kept curing because as I'm trying to learn, it never shows the feet at first, when it does, it's only for a few seconds then goes for another "artistic" shot. The backup dancers who though never speak, seem like they are having fun & enjoying the moves which helps.
As other reviewers said, she also seems rushed. Patricia seemed to realize this & tried to incorporate learning the moves & how to move the body nice & slow so it's easy to learn into the warm-up section which is brilliant, but she still ran out of time. The rest of the sections is a breezed through, very short routines, though she still teaches well here considering how fast she has to teach, good choice in cues, one of the better dance instructors, but the camera & time works against her.

Bonus Section:
has an alternate music track that is the same music but turned up louder so it almost completely drowns out Patricia for those who get tired of the instruction. Another thing some reviewers had complained on her first two dance workouts.
Jazz:
9 min warm-up, 12 min routine.

I am an exercise video addict. I have about 60 excercise videos and I would say this rates in the bottom 2. The instructor explains a few of the basics badly and then rushes into a confusing dance routine that only a practiced dancer could follow. So who is this DVD for? Not for dancers who don't need to learn this. Not for those like me and I bet most average people who can't follow it. This isn't easy to follow, has no warm up, thus probably could give one a bad back or a knee injury. If you enjoy dancing for fun like I do this is not the tape for you. It is like the humiliation you would suffer if you signed up for a dance class for dancers and aren't one. Don't fall for the instructor's winning and relaxed smile on the cover of the DVD package. She doesn't care if you can follow her routine. Even the people on the tape with her are all doing different routines.

This was the worst dance DVD I have ever had. The moves are confusing and she does not explain them. Far from getting a good workout and feeling cool about dancing (as I usually do) I mostly just felt spastic. Like the other person said in her review, I thought it might get better with practice but mostly it was just frustrating. I'm returning this one.

I've done a little bit of dancing, but found that the dance segments of this video moved so quickly that I never had any clue what I was supposed to be doing. The first time I thought that I just needed a few more times through, but it never got better. A few specific complaints: the moves are often not precisely in rhythm with the background music, the instructor mixes up left and right (sometimes when she says "right" it refers to her right, but sometimes it refers to the viewer's right), and she never gives what I consider the most helpful instruction in dance, which is what foot your weight should be on at the end of one move to properly transition to the next.

If you're an accomplished dancer you might enjoy this workout, but for a beginner or casual dancer it's just frustrating.

I did not get very far into the workout I decided to try (the hip hop one), because the music was a totally different tempo than the movements. It is ridiculous to not have the beat of the music in sync with the movements.

This is probably one reason so many people in other reviews are having trouble picking up the sequences -- there's the beat of the music we hear, and there's the beat of whatever they were using on-set. They are different, which makes the movement much more difficult to follow. This is the most basic concept in dance -- you have to be able to follow the music in order to anticipate what's next, and associating the movement with the beat of the music is how you learn movement sequences in the first place.

The dvd would actually be better off with no music at all than with the confusing music they chose. The style of music also did not go with hip hop dancing, but I could deal with that.

This may be a fine video otherwise, but the music issue was a dealbreaker for me.
