Editorial Reviews

"As your repertoire increases, so does the intensity." Health Magazine It features a medley of fun, dance-inspired moves demonstrated in an unusually easy to follow format. Each pattern is taught at three tempos. You'll always begin a combo at the easiest-to-learn slower tempo and gracefully build up to the faster speeds. Then, you'll start over again with a new pattern at the slowest tempo (each choreography block only lasts a few minutes so it's never boring). Juliane Arney's combinations are exceptionally varied - a mix of familiar dance steps and free-flowing movements - from cha chas and mambos to "sassy taps" and "double twists." Very enthusiastic class and cuing. Bright, high-tech set. ©2005. (45 min.).

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun dance workout... November 19, 2006
By Teedums
Another workout from the Dance off the Inches series, this one is led by Michelle Dozois, who has appeared in quite a few workout videos over the years. She is joined by 4 other ladies, including Marie Forleo who has led Crunch Cardio Dance Blast and Prevention's Dance Yourself Thin. They are all in a cozy living room setting ready to groove.

One feature of this DVD is a step guide, which demonstrates many of the moves that make up the foundation of the workout. I was glad to find this in this and other Dance off the Inches workouts that I have tried. I am not the best when it comes to dance moves, so it's nice to have this little tutorial when I need it. Michelle will show you the move, slow at first then at tempo, plus she will show any additional variations that might be seen in the workout, any arm movements that go with it for example.

You start with a fun warmuup and move into the first of three dance routines called Shake Those Hips. Some of the steps seen here include single and double hip shakes, side taps, grapevines and circle walks. Then you will move into the next dance routine, Latin Spice. Here you will see the Spicy March, the slide, cross & bounce, mambo, cha chas (with a turn added), kickball change and shoulder shimmeys.

The final dance segment is Jazz it Up. This routine includes chasses, drags, narrow/wide march (out out in in), quick lunges, tap front/back, box step, side taps, double taps and hops. Then it's time to cooldown.

I thought Michelle did a nice job in this workout, she seems to be having fun here and interacts with her backgrounders throughout, asking them to show what kind of arms they like to do with a certain step, etc. I enjoyed her as an instructor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly Simple October 13, 2006
If you're looking for something basic that doesn't have any complex choreography, then you're in the right place. If you're looking for something fresh, fun, funky and challenging, then this DVD is certainly not it.

Michelle Dozois is a certified Pilates instructor, and it shows, due to her lack of personality in demonstrating the dance moves. The choreography is basic, dull, and uninteresting. I was able to pick it up in one go without being challenged too much.

Here's what you get

10MIN TEACHING SEGMENT - For people who are new to dance-aerobics, Michelle takes first timers through a 10 minute segment which spends 1 minute on each of 10 different steps that are used throughout the workout. This is good for people with two left feet and are lacking in coordination, but I found it excruciatingly slow to go through it, with the moves being so basic that I could pick most of them up from sight at full tempo. Of course, the advantage of having such a segment completely separate from the main workout itself is I didn't have to use this segment if I didn't want to.

35MIN DANCE WORKOUT - As well as the warmup and cooldown, there are three dance segments. Honestly, I found two out of three of these boring and unoriginal. Michelle Dozois lacks personality and that go-get-em attitude that draws people into a workout. I was stunned when the workout started to see that Marie Forleo is one of the back-up exercisers in the workout. Marie Forleo has two dance DVDs herself; one from Crunch and one from Prevention, and a Dance Off The Inches DVD due to be released soon. This workout might have been more of a success if Marie had lead it instead of Michelle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good and fun too :-> September 28, 2006
You've probably seen Michelle Dozois in some Prevention dvds and 10 Minute Solution dvds. She's really outgoing and fun without being too over the top or annoying. Instead, you find yourself having a blast and you've done a great workout before you know it.

This is one such fun workout. It's easy to follow and easy to do. It's only a little over half an hour so it's not that hard to find the time for it. She lets you know that it's ok to either follow exactly what the others are doing, or make up your own style. There's a fair bit of dancy moves, but not hard and it's like a moderate impact workout. You don't need to be totally fit, but somewhat co-ordinated and not to have two left feet.

This is probably better kept for those days where you can't be bothered exercising but need to do a little something. You don't need to try hard, but this will change your mood and keep you happy for the rest of the day. It's great and I hope you like it too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but not for me February 15, 2007
Purchasing this DVD was a leap of faith for me; I always come to Amazon and read the reviews before making a selection. I have had great success utilizing the review system, so when I was up for a new title for my fitness collection, seeing this video and its high ratings was an encouragement.

I'm not going to outright bash "DOTI: Fat Burning Jam" because it does have several merits. The steps are simple so that even someone who has never done aerobics can follow along and be successful in one or two tries.

The instructors aren't stick-thin, non-sandwich eating supermodels. It's refreshing to see that in fitness videos because chances are, many of us just split a Ho-Ho with our toddler (and washed it down with a swig of Capri-Sun) about 45 minutes prior to firing up the DVD player.

Nor are the instructors all 20 and under. Michelle looks to be in her late 30s/early 40s, as is her companion Sasha. That, too, is an encouragement to the real world. You may get a bit creeped out at seeing a couple of women who aren't 20 whipping their hips about (as I was initially); I had to remind myself that just because you turn 30 doesn't mean you can't move like that and boast toned EVERYTHING.

Just don't wear the skirt made from a single paper napkin and the fishnets when you sport your moves in public; now THAT is the fast track to Skankville, my friends, no matter how buff you are! ;)

The cons for Fat Burning Jam stem more from personal taste than anything. I wasn't keen on the "living room" set that was utilized; when I work out, I want to feel as if I am AWAY from my home and at the gym for 30 minutes.

I love this video. It gets me moving when it's too cold to go outside. I would recommend it for anyone who wants to exercise, but doesn't like the usual gym type exercises.
