Format: DVD
I have tried about four of the Dancing with the Stars workouts but have only purchased, one, which was the Dancing with the Stars "Dance Off the Pounds". Here's my take...Each I felt were well done, but it really depends on if you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced exerciser.
The one dvd I do have is an intermediate/advanced workout. I do have dance experience, I like a fast pace and I get bored easily and need to be challenged. If you are looking for an easier one that I liked, the Latin Dance one with Cheryl Burke is a good one for a beginner.

This dvd is good, depending on what you like. Some of the basic moves you will use in each dance are outlined by your instructors, Kym Johnson & Mark Ballas in the 7 minute warm-up sequence. I'm not sure I love the warm-up and the instruction in that section, but it is not a huge deal. The three types of dances that you will do are the Samba (17 minutes), the Salsa (16 minutes) and the Jive/Swing (15 minutes). The instruction is good and the slower segments are the first two segments. Once you get to the Swing/Jive, Mark Ballas really shows you how to make the dance really become a fat burner. This was by far my favorite. I would say intermediate on the first two sections and intermediate/advanced on the last one if you are following Mark. It is very fast paced in some sections. I loved it but I am thinking for a beginner this might be an exercise in frustration.
There is no cool-down at the end of the work-out, it just ends, which was different from the dvd I purchased. I would recommend some hamstring stretches after just to keep things loose, but that is my opinion.

This DVD has quickly become one of my favorites, however I do have to call it out on having false advertising. On the front it clearly says "perfect for beginners," and as other reviewers have said, that's not exactly true. With that being said, this is still an intense workout that will definitely give you weight loss and a whole lot more.

There's about a seven-minute warm up to start things off. It may be what the producers thought was perfect for beginners, because it breaks down key steps of each dance style. Mark Ballas and Kym Johnson, the instructors, really teach fundamentals of the first few steps they'll actually show you in the dance routine to come. Was it a warm up? Not really. There's no stretching or anything that will particularly get you loose and ready to go. After viewing this the first time, I now skip it and warm up with the beginning of one of the routines.

SAMBA - 17 minutes - Kym leads Samba, and I think she does it very well. This section is very bouncy and probably what I would call the intermediate part of the DVD. If you're familiar with the Samba section from the older Dancing With the Stars - Cardio Dance DVD, then you'll recognize some of them here. If you're completely new to Samba, Kym begins by teaching some very basic steps and kind of breaking them down for you. Each move gets progressively more difficult with some of the final moves being a bit complicated and fast. This (and every other) section is broken down into three parts: combo 1 (5 minutes), combo 2 (5 minutes), and combo 3/put it all together (5-7 minutes). This format keeps viewers from getting bored and taking it from the top all the time.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This latest DVD from the DWTS DVD line has become one of my favorites. Again, I like to see different instructors and it's great to see Mark Ballas as an instructor. He does a great job, breaking down the steps and doing them slowly, at first.
The first section in the Samba, which focuses on the abs. Next, both instructors lead the Salsa, which is good. I like doing a different routine. But the real workout is the swing/jive, led by Mark. This is fast action, high intensity cardio, which will enhance weight loss.
The front of the DVD says: "Perfect for Beginners!" but I would classify this as an intermediate workout because the last section is very intense.
AS another review pointed out, the warm-up section is sort of a "dance lesson", which is fine, but do you keep wanting to "learn" th moves to warm up?
The DVD also lacks a cool down segment, which you need after burning up the dancefloor during the swing/jive.
So I do my own stretches, no big deal.
Despite these 2 criticisms, I really like this DVD and have been doing it 2-3x a week.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The reviews for this video are all over the map, so I will add yet another opinion. I had no difficulty in picking up the moves, but I can see that some people would. I consider it advantage is that they don't spend a huge amount of time on the moves. So while it might take a few viewings for you to learn the moves, it will have more interest after you learn them. So if you pick up moves fairly easily or have the patience to work through it, you will probably like the video. If you are a beginner who would find not being able to follow along immediately discouraging, then I'd suggest waiting before trying this.

Even with that said, I find in some sections they break down the moves enough where my heart rate could drop. So in those spots I will continue doing the moves already covered, or some other simple but energetic moves (eg, jumping jacks) for a few moments.

I think Kym is probably the better instructor, but Mark's section is really enjoyable. I find myself having a lot of fun every time I do this video. And it is a good workout, as long as you are willing to keep moving when they slow down slightly.

The review here by JJ is very informative and I recommend you read it for more information on the sections and dance types. (Now I know the difference between swing and jive!)

The volume is a little off on this; the music is fairly quiet compared to the voices. It has a music only option, which I haven't tried yet. This and the 'false advertising' (see JJs review) are why I only give this 4 stars, even though it is 5 stars for fun. I generally use Just Dance for Wii for my aerobic exercise; this is one of the few videos that I think can compete with that series.
