On the negative side...
The DVD is sleep-inducing. The pace is very slow, she speaks slowly and softly, and the jazzy "burlesque" music in the background makes elevator music sound like heavy metal.
There's no actual "workout" here, either. The DVD is divided into topics, like "struts," "bumps," "grinds, "kicks," "shimmies," etc., and she demonstrates each in an equally slow, methodical way. The only chapter that might get your heart rate up is the kicks, but that's just a few minutes. Dolphina also covers the topic "Boa," and the cool-down utilizes big feather fans. (Likely you don't have those handy or could pick them up at your local Sports Authority.)
There's a segment called "Routine" that puts most of the moves together, but again, it's very low-impact and slow-paced, so unless you're grievously out of shape, don't expect your heart rate to budge.
It was all fun stuff and easy to do, but the one part I found grating was the segment called "Performance," where she indulges herself with an overly-long burlesque routine that uses a lot of moves not shown in the instructional segments. (Even if it did, the camera cuts make it almost impossible to follow or imitate.) Nice for the hubby, but I could do very well without it.
All in all, it was surprisingly dull, pedestrian, and a bit self-indulgent. I really wanted to like it, which made my disappointment that much greater.
I got out of doing this mild and easy to follow
workout. I had so much fun following this DVD I
couldn't stop smiling!!! Dolphina is a beautiful
teacher with a charming, quirky personality that
makes you feel good about learning. I adore this
DVD for the pure and simple pleasure of the old
style burlesque instruction provided.
As for anyone seeking a belly dance DVD the
title clearly states 'Cardio Burlesque' and im
uncertain why one would be expecting to find a
belly dance instructional. It is what it says it
is, Burlesque! 98% of my instructional DVDs are
belly dance DVDs and I would have certainly been
disapointed if this DVD would have been belly
dance and not burlesque. I like to change things
up a bit from time to time and this was definatly
a great investment for doing just that. Dolphina
has many belly dance DVDs which are all great so
read the titles and you'll know what you will be
in for. This one is just good old fashion fun!!!

The shipper is fine, got the DVD quickly. The DVD itself is boring. Instructor is very monotone and not much personality. Couldn't get 1/2 way before shutting it off.Published on April 2, 2011 by Leslie
