4.0 out of 5 stars Fast and fun yet still a little lacking December 7, 2010
After seeing some of the previews of the DVD, I was really excited to get "Dancing with the Stars: Fat Burning Cardio Dance." And, although it was a pretty good fitness DVD that gave me a good cardio workout, it still left me wanting just a little bit more.

The DVD is divided into four different sections: Mambo, Jazz, Hustle, and Cooldown. This is what I thought of each individual section:

Mambo Mix - This first section fuses Mambo and Salsa moves together, and I'm afraid that the different tempos of the two dances in addition to Edyta Sliwinska's (the instructor for this routine) bad cuing makes this low impact segment the worst of the bunch. While you start off by doing some very easy and slow mambo steps to the side, forward, and back, Edyta soon adds in moves that are very fast, and the two different speeds just don't really feel right together. Edyta does do a good job, for the most part, of slowing down each move before bringing it up to tempo, but there are a few times when she teaches the move incorrectly and never corrects herself, leaving the viewer to notice the mistake a few minutes later when doing the move quickly. Overall, the moves were very Latin and sexy, but the speed differences between the two styles was just too awkward for me.

Hollywood Jazz - Kym Johnson leads this routine which is a mixture of many styles of dance such as: Swing, Jazz, Broadway, Charleston, and more. Kym starts off with a very slow fosse move, but the rest of the routine is very high cardio and very much fun to do with moves that include fast kicks and lunges. The cuing is really well done, and most of the moves are broken down to teach but brought up to tempo before the heart rate falters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very advanced January 4, 2011
Verified Purchase
I own a few DWTS dance DVD's as well as the Julianne Hough ones and while I am not a pro dancer I feel that I am at a higher level than the novice dancer. However I did this DVD for the first time the other day and I was very dissapointed. It was very hard to follow along in most cases
Edyta started off fine but then she ended up going way to fast and did not explain alot of the steps that well. I was very impressed with another DVD that had Kym in it and am able to do that dance but this one she did same thing was lost part way through. I felt that out of all the dances Chelsie was the best and easiest to follow.
I will give it another try but it is not fun doing a DVD that you get frustrated doing

Rating a workout video can be tough due to the fact that people who do the dvds come with different levels of fitness, instruction, and training, so I am rating this 4 stars for myself, but will try to outline who this dvd may be for and what I liked and disliked about it:

A good place to check the level of workout is collagevideo.com. They will give you a breakdown of beginner, intermediate & advanced, this will give you a starting point because in the Dances with the Stars videos they go from Beginner to Intermediate/Advanced. This dvd is considered "intermediate".

The dvd is broken down in three sections mambo, where Edyta is your instructor, Hollywood Jazz, with Kym & Hustle & Pop with Chelsea. My favorite was Chelsea's section because the moves were retro, fun and you move a lot. My least favorite was Edyta's, because it didn't seem to flow as well. I took dance training for many years growing up, so I have done many of these steps before, and it is just a matter of learning the combos and speed of the movements. After doing it once I had most of the moves down, but it would probably take me, as an intermediate/advanced exerciser about 3 run throughs to really have everything down-pat, and probably a bit longer to look polished and have memorized the steps so that they flow well.

Dislikes: The videos really should have a special segment that breaks down each move, this would make this dvd appeal to many more people, as some do not have dance experience but want to learn. The breakdown section could be aside from the workout so that you are not consistently having to slow down, but at the beginning this would be helpful and probably more people would have stuck through it if they had some instruction and additional follow-the trainer kind of moves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Workout! February 28, 2011
I had to give a review after reading the other horrible reviews of this video. I don't think some people are allowing themselves time to learn the video.

Just to give you a little bit of my workout history. I've been able to stay in good shape over the years working out mostly with at home workout DVDs. I even had a few VHS workouts that I used back in my teen years. Back when it was common for supermodels to release their workout program(Cindy Crawford, Kathy Ireland, and Elle McPherson). I've done various workouts: aerobics, step aerobics, tae-bo, circuit training, pilates, etc.

I had devised my own weekly workout regime that I had stuck with for the past 3 years. Consisting of strength training from a DVD, some ab work from a DVD and my cardio was walking my dogs and the treadmill. After so long of doing the same thing I was getting bored. I spent months trying different videos that I already had in my collection to get me out of my rut. I was still looking for something to make me more excited to workout. I've always loved dancing but I'm not a dancer. One area I felt I needed to improve was my cardio stamina. So in a rather spur of the moment decision I bought Julianne Hough's Cardio Ballroom and her new release Just Dance. I began learning the Cardio Ballroom workout this past October.

During another shopping trip right around the first of the new year I noticed the 2 newest DWTS workouts that were on sale(this one I'm reviewing and DWTS: Ballroom Buns and Abs). I bought both DVDs that feature the same 3 pros. So for the past 2 months now I've ditched Julianne's workouts and I've focused on the DWTS DVDs. I interchange them depending on the day. I like this workout a lot. I do the complete video each time, all 3 dances plus the cooldown.
