After a rocky start this is now my favorite cardio video and I have tried too many to count. Please don't feel discouraged by the jive in the first segment. That is by far the trickiest to get down but not impossible. The choreography is AMAZING. The steps SEEM simple but they make you feel like a professional dancer. I love that they are challenging but that the steps repeat in a pattern so a regular person can follow along. I did the video twice before adding my own music with the video on mute. This makes the video SO great and different than others - the steps stay the same but the music can change as often as you like. This difference is key. I can't dance to music that is boring so being able to have simple steps that repeat is really a revelation to me. I also appreciate that there are not too many traveling steps...for those of us that live in small apartments. Lisa won me over with her personality that is so warm and friendly. There is a great group of pro dancers who put there own spin on the steps. I did this video with my teenage niece and she loved it too (we both were chanting "single, single, double on the same side" Thanks for making these great workouts. I am a convert and can't wait until more come out!!!

Since I am both a fitness instructor for the YWCA and a Ballroom Dancer I was naturally curious to see what this video contained. I love it!! My husband & I have watched Dancing with the Stars since it started and think Louie VanAmstel a very sharp dancer, teacher & choreographer. Lisa is cute and a button and does a great job of explaining and demonstrating the dance steps. It is already beginning to pay off for me. I would highly recommend the video to anyone wanting to improve their physical fitness and have fun doing it.

After reading several reviews about Lisa Rinna's "Dance Body Beautiful" series being poorly produced, I was a bit apprehensive about this DVD. It seemed many people said she danced off beat, didn't cue well, and was altogether a horrible instructor. I'm not necessarily going to say that the people who said that were wrong, but I will say that all of those comments are a bit exaggerated. While this series isn't perhaps the most professionally produced and Lisa isn't the most graceful hostess, I still really enjoyed the routines in this workout and felt like they were pretty effective!

With the exception of the warm up and cool down, all of the routines consisted of four sections: breakdown, slow, medium, and fast. Breakdown was Lisa alone showing you how to do the moves in the routine. It only lasts a few minutes, but it's very helpful for the choreography. The screen will be split, showing a full body shot of Lisa on one side, with the other side being a zoomed in picture of her feet. I thought this was great for someone who has never danced before; you really can get the routine down before moving on. Slow, medium, and fast were exactly what they sounded like; you would do the routine that you've just learned to 3 different songs which are at 3 different speeds.

WARM UP - You start off the DVD with very simple steps to get the body moving. All that Lisa does is lead the viewer through some marching and step touching. After doing that for 2-3 minutes, she'll do some basic stretches and then hold a squat for a long time. Your legs will probably be burning by the end of the warm-up, and you will most definitely be warm.

JIVE - I really liked the Jive routine. It only had about four different steps, but they were all high energy and fun to do.

My favorite extension of Dancing with the Stars! Lisa Rinna is just as great as she was on the show- she really pushed me to get my cardio up and her cute outfits only made me want to work it harder! Not much of a fitness fiend, but learning key steps from my favorite dances is enough motivation. For anyone that loves dancing- this video is an A plus!

I really enjoy doing this workout, it feels good and it is somewhat of a challenge as I seem to have two left feet now that I am almost 40! This is a great alternative to aerobics - which I have never liked.

The other reviews convinced me to give this a try. Although I really enjoy Lisa's attitude and confidence, there are several drawbacks to the workout.

1) The cueing is spotty. Because the routines are complex and fast, this is an important omission.

2) When she says "turn left" - to the audience, she actually means, " turn right." I was always in the reverse image. EVERY other exercise video I've tried accounts for this.

3) There isn't enough awareness about safety when stretching or moving fast.

With some coaching Lisa could be a terrific instructor. She has the body, motivation, and good energy to inspire. The routines were close, too, and fun, but I couldn't overcome the drawbacks. The ability to move well and have great rhythm is a huge plus, but she needs to study with instructors who've made successful videos. Till then, I humbly suggest that she not quit her day job;)

This is a really fun dance video! Moves are easy and instruction segment is pretty straight forward. The only complaint I would have is that Lisa is a little "lazy" about keeping you on count and preparing you for the next move. It is alot of fun though and she is motivating and I have always loved her! You will sweat with this one, too!! Have fun w/ it!!
