4.0 out of 5 stars Toning? Not really. December 8, 2009
Verified Purchase
This dancing workout is different from all of the other DWTS workouts. I was expecting it to be like "DWTS: Dance Off the Pounds" but it was totally different. While in "Dance Off the Pounds" each of the three dances was a full routine, some of these dances were not full routines. Yet, they weren't just moves taught to you. Let me explain. . .

There is no warm-up so you go directly to the first workout.

Latin-This 15 minute workout is divided into three 5 minute workouts. The first one is Rumba, the second Cha-Cha, and the third was a Cha-Cha/Merengue mix. The back of the box said to expect Mambo, but I didn't really see any Mambo steps except for maybe one. Maybe. The Rumba is easy and beginners could probably do it. Cha-Cha is a bit quicker and it slightly resembles the Cha-Cha routine on the "Cardio Dance" DVD. The Cha-Cha Merengue was nice, but it features some moves that are more ab toning and less dance. Kym Johnson leads this, and she is a better instructor than in the other video. However, this section just seemed too feminine. There were no male backups and the moves were a little slinky. Focuses on toning abs.

Tango-I LOVED this section! Led by Dmitry Chaplin, it had the same format as the Latin with three 5 minute workouts. The moves were SO fun. The music was GREAT! You really felt like you were really dancing! Unfortunately, this routine has no real purpose except for teaching some really fun steps. It is not cardio at all, and while it tries to tone legs, it fails. At least it does for me.

Freestyle-This routine, led by Lacey Schwimmer IS a full routine. It has NO toning whatsoever, but it takes Jive, Latin, and other steps and adds a hip-hop style to them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better workout than it appears! December 21, 2009
I purchased this with the other DWTS DVD. I definitely prefer "Dance off the Pounds" to the "Dance Body Tone" DVD.

However, it was hard to go into DVD with an open mind since I loved "Dance Off the POunds" so much, but if you do, you will find that it is actually a good workout, if you put the energy the instructors have for these moves into it.

The first section was Latin dance with Kym. It's called an "ab blast" but honestly, I didn't feel as though I was doing anything really strenuous. There is Rhumba, Cha Cha and Merengue here. The moves are pretty good, not fast paced and easy to get down on the first try. But that was the problem I had. It felt more like I was swaying my hips continuously for 15 mins and that's all. I was a little let down with this section and worried that they were reverting back to the older DWTS DVDs. But I was pleasantly surprised that the next day, my abs and hips did feel like they were worked, albeit not sore exactly, but "stretched out". So this section DID serve it's purpose.

Second up was the Tango/Argentine Tango section with Dmitry. This section was a lot of fun and I felt sexy doing it. I didn't work up a huge sweat since the tango is not a fast dance, and the moves are broken down slowly. But doing the leg flicks you see them do on the show was a lot of fun. Great little section but I really didn't think it was toning anything. Well here I am the day after and let me tell you, was I wrong! My legs and butt are a little sore and I am really surprised. The thing with this section is, you are doing a lot of lunges and steps that you "sit in" so you are doing a lot of thigh and glute work! And you don't realize that. So it was a really pleasant surprise.

Last up was the Freestyle section with Lacey.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard to follow January 3, 2010
I was quite disappointed with this video. I workout on a regular basis and was hoping to add dance into my routine to change things up. However, this was not the DVD to start with.

The other reviews did a good job of explaining the different sets on the DVD so I won't talk to much about those. i will say that I feel like I got the best workout from the first routine, the Latin routine, which was focused on abs. The other two didn't do much for me.

But the real issue I has was not being able to keep up with the steps. I am no a dancer at all, but my sister has been dancing all her life and is in a show choir now and she had a hard time keeping up with the steps. Often times you only see the steps once before you do them at tempo. I also felt like I needed a lot more space than would be available anywhere in my home.

If you want to learn the dances this may be a good DVD for you. If you are a beginner or are looking for a good workout I would suggest skipping this video.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better...A little disappointed January 7, 2010
I borrowed this DVD from the library to preview it before I purchased it. Some other reviewers commented on the lack of a warm up and the type of instructions given. I do have to agree with these comments. The DVD does have a cool down, which is a plus. First up is Kym, who leads some Latin-style moves. Not too inspiring, just a lot of hips swaying; I wasn't sure if it really counted as a dance or a workout. This segment was quite disjointed. Next was Dmitri, who leads a tango style routine. His instructions are clear and he does go slow- at least 3 times so you get it. His routine is more of a routine, but I didn't feel too challenged. Last is Lacey with Freestyle. Now, while I didn't care for this style of dance, sort of hip-hop/jive/bouncy, it IS the best workout. First, it's VERY aerobic and secondly, it is a whole little routine from start to finish. She breaks it into sections and builds upon what was done. Then she goes through the whole routine several times. There's some jumping, so it's not quite low impact. Of the 3 dances, this one made me feel like I was working out.

All in all, I was disappointed and a, glad that I did not purchase this DVD.

What I do recommend is the DWTS Latin Cardio with Maks and Cheryl. It's not perfect and sometimes her instructions are a bit fast, but you feel like you've exercised. There is a nice warm up and cool down and 4 dances to choose from.

Somehow the creators of this DVD managed to find BORING latin dance music! IMHO a difficult task! Other than that, reviews by Rayna, B.Glass and Justin Bailey said it all. Read more
