4.0 out of 5 stars Good moderately paced, moderately complex dance workout January 14, 2007
Format:DVD
Sizzling Salsa is one of the latest offerings from the Dance Off the Inches series, which has produced fun, generally easy-to-follow dance workouts. This one is led by Stella Sandoval, and as in the other DVDs, she teaches a class of four in what almost looks to be someone's living room. This time, two of the background exercisers are other instructors, Michelle Dozios and Marie Forleo.

This DVD has a particularly nice feature called the Step Guide. This is a 17-minute segment in which Stella breaks down some of the dance steps from the workout, first showing the move, then performing it slowly, and finally, bringing it up to tempo. Even though I've done some Latin dance workouts before, I found it very helpful to review this section before attempting the main program. However, keep in mind that Stella does not teach every step from the workout here and also that some of the steps are performed a bit differently once they appear in the workout.

The workout itself consists of a 5 minute warm-up, 3 dance routines (Spicy Salsa, Latin Lime Twist, and Mucho Mambo Combo), and a 2.5 minute cool-down. Each dance routine is approximately 9 minutes long. Stella teaches in an add-on style, showing you a couple of moves at time, having you practice these, and then gradually adding more moves to the mix until you have worked your way up to the full routine. One you have learned all of the moves in the routine, Stella "takes you to the dance floor" (her way of saying that you complete the entire dance) four times total. Each of the three dance segments is stand-alone (ie, the Mucho Mambo Combo doesn't repeat any of the moves from Spicy Salsa), and the DVD is nicely chaptered so that you could mix-and-match if you chose to do so.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fat Burning Fiesta! November 19, 2006
By Teedums
Format:DVD
This is another workout in the Dance off the Inches series, led by Stella Sandoval who I haven't seen in another video. She is joined by 4 other ladies including Michelle Dozois and Marie Forleo, who are leads in other Dance off the Inches workouts. They are in a comfortable living room setting all ready to dance to some fun and spicy latin moves.

One of the features on this DVD is a step guide which teaches many of the moves that make up the foundation of the dance routines. I found this very helpful, some dance workouts look easy but once you attempt them it's not the case so this came in handy. Each step is demonstrated slowly, then faster, then arm movements are added, then any other variations that might take place in the workout.

There are 3 dance routines plus a warmup and cooldown, the first dance routine is called Spicy Salsa. The steps seen here are the salsa, cha chas, merengue, hip rolls and walking cha chas. Stella will lead you through each step, repeating each one a few times then adding one step at a time. As the steps are added you will take the routine from the top which might be repetitive for some but it didn't bother me.

The next dance routine is called Latin Lime Twist. Here you will see the latin twist, box step, sambas, mambos, shimmeys, stomps plus some interesting arm movements such as flamenco and ole arms. The final dance segment is called Mucho Mambo Combo, which is mainly a mambo and a tango. Some additional steps are mixed in though such as tap hops, cha chas, and salsa steps.

I liked this workout a lot, thought it was fun and Stella does a good job leading this video. She is enthusiastic and seems to be enjoying herself. I thought that she and all the backgrounders did a nice job with the moves too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing! July 18, 2007
By K
Format:DVD
I agree thoroughly with Kate and Donna! I wish I'd seen their reviews before ordering this. After an evening of salsa or merengue dancing, I have often thought what a great workout it was, so when I saw this, I thought it would be perfect. I was so wrong! On the plus side, she's definitely enthusiastic. However, this is really aerobics with a hint of Latin dance steps (or Latin steps the way an aerobics instructor would do them) set to Latin elevator music. I've TRIED to do this twice now with the hope that it wasn't as bad as I'd originally thought, but I had to stop and write this review. Here's what's going on while I type: "Let's go into the Mambo move. Now let's add the Ole arms. Tap it out. Go back to your Ole arms.... box step, mambo ole, tap it out, ...flamenco arms, samba, mambo ole... tap and then hop..." Boy, it would be interesting to picture them doing this at a dance club.

When I searched for "dance" I got this. I think that if I'd searched for "aerobics" I wouldn't have been as completely disappointed.

I like Stella as an instructor, but this workout didn't have the same pizazz as the workouts led by Michelle Dozois and Maria Forleo. I agree with the other reviewer who found the moves repetitive. I also agree that this workout won't get you sweating. It's a good workout for a lighter day, or to pair up with another half hour DVD. As far as workouts go it is safe, will get you moving, and provides proper instruction, but it lacked the wow factor (for me, anyway).

2.0 out of 5 stars Dancing Salsa is a better exercise! March 13, 2007
By Kate T.
Format:DVD
I took ballroom dance lessons last year and I found the latin dances to be my favorite. I thought if Salsa which I loved the most is incorporated into exercise, it would be perfect! But when I started the DVD, I was very disappointed. The music was annoying and the steps were very simple, repetitive and boring. For me, dancing salsa with salsa music would be the best exercise and more enjoyable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Low level workout
It is very slow moving. I didn't sweat at all. The music is good and instructor does a good job but too basic for me. I stopped it 40 minutes in as I was bored

2.0 out of 5 stars Less impressive than others in series
I own several other Dance off the Inches workout videos and have been pleased with them. But, this one I found to be mediocre. First, most of the music isn't that great. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked this one
This Sizzling Salsa dvd I'd say is beginner/intermediate level. It's much faster paced than the Jane Fonda dance videos, but a lot less intense than a zumba class I'd say. Read more

Wonderful work out video, which is perfect for people who hate working out and love to dance. Probably the only work out I continued to do longer that 3 months. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars good for a warm up
This video is good for warming up before the real workout happens. They repeatedly use a handful of the same easy dance steps and it gets to be boring after about 20 minutes.
