Dance with Julianne: Cardio Ballroom is an easy-to-follow, infectiously fun, and results-oriented workout that beginners and advanced dancers alike will enjoy and look forward to doing. Julianne Hough, the breakout star of Dancing with the Stars, is not just a fiery dancer, an appealing country singer, and an in-demand choreographer--she's also a very talented dance workout instructor.

Hough is perfectly charismatic on camera, and though her lean dancer body may at first seem intimidating, in fact, Hough's approach is so down-to-earth and inclusive that even true beginners will feel comfortable and right at home. The moves revolve around several key ballroom styles, including the cha-cha and the jive. All the moves are chosen, Hough says, for their ability to raise the heart rate and burn calories--but also because dance moves create "a lean, sleek body--not chunky or awkwardly shaped." (And if one can get even halfway toward Hough's own sleek physique, that's plenty of inspiration right there.) The steps are very easy to follow, and Hough keeps the routines simple, stepping up the intensity with optional hops, squats, and spins. "If you feel awkward," she says, especially to beginners, "then you're doing it right." Each subsequent time of doing the workout becomes more fun, as the viewer/exerciser feels more like part of Hough's "troupe."

The 55-minute workout includes good warm-ups and stretches, will get your heart rate up, and will also work key areas like the hips and waist, which can become stiff in a sedentary lifestyle. Extras include a step-by-step "lesson" from Hough so the viewer can truly understand specific moves, and a very engaging interview with Hough on why she chose this workout: "You can do this with friends, and laugh at the same time," Hough says. "You can't really laugh while lifting weights." --A.T. Hurley

Drenched and happy. That's me after doing Julianne Hough's Cardio Ballroom for the first time today. (I was lucky enough to get an advance copy.) What a wonderful and challenging workout...and what a wonderful and adorable instructor! Julianne's directions are clear, easy to understand, and she builds her routines easily, cleanly, logically and so quickly that, before you know it, you feel like you're doing the cha-cha, jive and paso doble on Dancing with the Stars with her. I've done ballroom and latin dancing as an amateur and definitely recommend that everyone - even dancers - start by taking the private lesson first, before trying out the full workout, to become familiar with the basic movements and steps. Then, the first time you do the full workout, don't try to copy her every move immediately -- learn it gradually: get the "footwork" down first, then add the arms and then the styling as you become more comfortable with the choreography. This is a workout that you'll get better at and have more fun with each time you do it. Great warm up and cool down too. Best of all, when you work out with Julianne, you'll sweat profusely and you'll have a ball, but you won't feel like you're exercising. You're dancing. And if you love to dance, this is the workout for you.

Format: DVD
Julianne clams "What's great about this DVD is if you never danced, if you have a little experience they're easy dance moves that you can pick up .... anybody can do it." FALSE While I'm no professional I have taken a lesson or two. While I may lack in technique, I'm usually able to pick up moves (footwork) pretty easily. Not with this video. The problems with this video

1. Julianne is facing you so you are dancing to a mirror image. It would have been nice to have her break down the moves by following her footwork exactly. Matter of fact while teaching a move she says to always cross right over, yet in the video she was doing left over right?? Confusing

2. Too fast from the start. Most instructors start at a slow pace so you are comfortable with the moves before moving on to a faster tempo. I have trouble keeping up with the music because I don't have my footwork down yet.

3. Camera doesn't show the footwork enough. OK, it's bad enough I'm trying to follow a mirror image but what's worse it that the camera is constantly zooming in on Julianne's face. She is a beautiful girl, but it's her FEET I need to see to learn the dance! At least show a full body shot or something.

4. Julianne is poor at teaching you HOW to do the moves. Again, she is just too fast. Basically just showing you what to do, not how to do it. She may be able to teach those stars how to dance, but in this video she doesn't think of beginners. Slow it down girl! Show me step by step please.

I do believe that if I were able to learn the routine and keep up with her moves, this would be a fun and fantastic workout. Sadly, this video just makes it too hard to learn. I give it one star because it is NOT for beginners! Had it not been marketed for beginners, I would have given it an extra star or two, blaming myself for not being able to keep up.

I love Julianne Hough as a dancer to begin with, and especially her teaching style, so I would have bought this DVD regardless. After just trying it for the first time, I can honestly say I am exhausted. I have been a dancer since the age of 3, and this was a a challenging DVD at first. I love how you are constantly moving, but it is not a beginner DVD where you only learn steps like in the DTWS DVDs (those are great for beginners). You a learning a routine, which is more fun.

I would recommend this DVD to anyone who wants to dance away their weight. It really is a great workout!

If you are a Dancing with the Stars fan like me, and always wish after each show that you could dance like the stars, but don't have a partner to take lessons with -this video is just what you need! Julianne Hough is such a motivating instructor and wanting a body like hers will keep you dancing right along with her!

This video is challenging at first, especially if you haven't had professional dance lessons, so I would recommend taking Julianne's private dance lesson first (also on the DVD) before starting the routines. She breaks down the footwork, making it easier to learn and practice before putting all of the steps together. Once you move onto the routines, you will definitely feel your muscles working with all of the twists, turns, and flirty moves! This is a must have for any DWTS fan or for those who want to learn how to Latin or Ballroom dance in the comfort of their own home. Get ready to sweat and shake that booty - so fun!

I had never done any videos on my own, least of all dance videos, so I was a little hesitant at all. I also have zero formal dance experience. Also, I rarely comment on products I buy, even if I like them. Finally, while I am not large, I have not worked out regularly in awhile and was scared I would fail. Once this got started, however, I knew instantly that I was a fan and that I had to share it with others. In fact, my roommate, who was at first not interested in doing it stood around watching and doing it in her jeans until she could not stand it and changed into some workout clothes to join me--I ended up doing the video for 2 hours and didn't even realize it! Okay, to the video: Julianne is perky and adorable, like a sweet friend. She is encouraging, but not demeaning or pretentious, speaking to you like the adult you are, which I found to be very important. This helps because 1) you do not mind listening to her, and 2) I can see the longevity of the video because I won't get bored or annoyed at her telling me step-by-step each time. This has some disadvantages, I can imagine, if you absolutely must have counting and verrry slow step by step approach--I like to just get into the nitty gritty, so to speak. Even with the practice, it was a bit difficult to pick up, but I don't think it will take long, and is more fun and challenging this way. The three dances she teaches, the cha cha, jive and paso are a ton of fun, and the music is great. I was thinking after we got good at this video we could even change it up and turn on our own latin music later. BTW, the jive is a killer workout, and gives you great cardio!Read more ›
