5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and cardio! December 2, 2009
Format:DVD
Let me start off this review by saying that "Dancing with the Stars: Dance off the Pounds" is my favorite DVD in the "Dancing with the Stars" (DWTS) series of workout DVDs. The styles of dance were fun, actual routines were taught as opposed to just unconnected moves in previous DVDs, and I actually worked up a huge sweat! The choreography was a bit complex, but I really enjoyed the challenge. Beginners to fitness and dance may be a bit frustrated at first, though. There is no warm-up, therefore the viewer has to either do his own or just let the beginning of one of the workouts act as the warm-up. The DVD was divided into the following four parts of the workout:

Swing - Led by Kym Johnson, it is the most basic of all the routines. It's almost an intro to the Jive, which is a style taught later on in the DVD. I found the moves to be rather easy to follow; although there is really no breakdown of the steps. It includes moves such as triple steps, rock steps, kick-ball-changes, sailor steps, Charlestons, and many more. It has quite a bit of hopping of kicking (at a rather slow speed, though), and it will really get the heart rate up. Kym is very motivating and sweet to the viewer; I like her as an instructor. This was my least favorite of all of the segments, but I still enjoyed it immensely.

Jive - Lacey Schwimmer leads this fast-paced routine. All of the moves are incredibly fast, and I could easily see a dance novile becoming completely confused and annoyed. Lacey teaches the moves very quickly and prefers going from the top a lot more than making sure you have the moves. She breaks down the really fast, complex moves which is something Kym never did.. Moves included are more triple steps, kicks, Charlestons, heel bops, jump steps, and more.

I'm a DVD dance-workout junkie. I buy *everything* dance-dvd, almost. This is the best of the four Dancing with the Stars workouts. It's not modern dance - it's super-cute jive, swing and funky-quickstep. It's a great workout.

The first segment is adorable and sweet learning the American dance 'the swing' (triple-step, rock-step, the sailor, etc.). Great intro to what's to come on the dvd. It's not slow either.

The second instructor and routine really shines, is a crazy-fun good time; the pace increases as you are taught the taught the international version of 'swing' which is called 'jive' (faster triple-steps, kicks, heel-bops, Big-X step, swivels, the charleston, the Lindy,etc.) High-impact and difficult cardio which can be modified by not doing arms.

The last segment is a suave, dressed-in-black quick-step routine that is explained well and, tho different, has the same great dance-flow as the first two parts. Make sure you watch it to the end it just is a sophisticated blast! Great job of teaching old dances with a totally-modern feel! Gene Kelly would approve.

I go back to this DVD as a "serious" fat-burning workout because it's a smiling good time that really makes you sweat and laugh. It's pure dance-cardio with, again, great flow. You ARE dancing, not aerobics pretending to be dance. Beautiful choreography that works. It's fun, not lame, slow, or dull, if you know what I mean. Just good times, dancin' hard like it's 1920-1945. And, whoa, did they move it back then. The dvd includes the option doing the workouts with music and instruction or just music so you can cut out the chattering once you're proficent and just dance. Love it. Super-fun. Good for beginners and established dancers alike, this is a serious workout worth the $$.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and challenging! December 14, 2009
Format:DVD
This DVD is a VAST improvement over the previous DWTS DVDs. First off there are less sections, but the segements are longer, which I like more since I think choppy short segments don't give you an adequate workout.

Lots of cardio in this DVD, and while it is a whole lot of fun, it is very challenging. I was soaked after doing the workout. To give you an idea of my background, I am an intermediate level in fitness DVDs and I have been dancing since the age of 4.

I decided to do this DVD from start to finish so I could see the quality of the workouts and time it as well.

The first section is Swing with Kym. This is great, alot of what you may have seen in the Jive sections if you got the first DWTS DVD, but it is still a very good workout. Kym not only does swing, she also adds in some Charleston, which was a nice change since I've never done that. You may be a little lost if you don't have any background in dance, but Kym does do her best to explain moves like pas de bouree the best she can in the few seconds she has before jumping in. Definitely gets your heart rate up with kicks. This was just the first section and I was tired after it--and I still had two more sections to go!

Next up was Lacey with Jive. Whoooo!! This moves fast and is similar to the swing section, but the moves are smaller and more precise, so it is more difficult since you have to keep your moves compact. This one was a real burner AND the steps while a lot of fun, again are hard to get down on the first try if you don't have a dance background. And it goes REALLY fast. I even had a hard time keeping up and just had to triple on the spot a few times.

I felt the DVD did not give anytime for instruction or a chance to keep up. I felt Fred Astaire would have had difficulty.

An okay cardio program, the first two programs are the best ... Dimitry looks like he is camera shy through most of his workout which is a bit distracting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good if you know how to dance but not for those with 2 left feet
I guess I thought there would be more instruction on how to dance. Not what was expected. Great for a dancer. I wS lost throughout most of it.

I really enjoy this video. I find it challenging and fun at the same time. What I also enjoy is that you can do all of the moves on carpet.
