4.0 out of 5 stars No BS Review from a Non Dancer September 5, 2010
Format:DVD
Before I started doing the dance cardio, I had been warned by other reviewers that it wasn't for non-dancers and that the instruction was limited. But I was so interested to try something different, I didn't really care - so what if it's hard? What if I look stupid? I'll get used to it. I am an AWFUL dancer and am not graceful. I have rhythm but I am by no means a ballerina, and I get dizzy with spins. But I am a runner and I'm fit. If you're in terrible shape and have no ability to dance and are extremely overweight, then no, you shouldn't do this video. Isn't that obvious?

When I put the DVD in and started with the first dance, I knew right away that I would have to learn dance by dance and not try to learn them all within the first day. The key to this program is patience, which no one has. Once I learned the first dance, which did involve watching 50 times, I was stoked to have memorized it and be able to dance and actually get a work out without counting or worrying about form. Granted, I only did one song. I did the same thing the next two times I did the video- just the first song and I did that over and over again (so that I got a total of 20 minutes of cardio). The repetition was a little boring at first, but I got good at it. Then I moved onto the next song and so on for the rest. I can do all 6 songs in a row with the choreography memorized. But this did take WEEKS not HOURS.

Honestly, after you've done this for a few weeks, you are so thankful that she doesn't talk. I've done P-90X and Slim in 6 and all these others where they just babble the entire time and it's like shut up already. You do not need instruction after you've learned the dances, which is what Tracy says. Trust me - you just have to be patient.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3-month review March 13, 2009
By Aimee
Format:DVD
I wanted to write a review from someone that had been doing Tracy's workouts for more than just a couple of weeks, because I feel like that was clearly missing from the reviews I have read in the site so far, so here it goes...

I mostly recommend this workout for people that have had some dance background or enjoy dance type aerobics classes at the gym or have done other dance workout dvds. If that's the case this is for you! If you consider yourself clumsy and not a dancer then really, what are you thinking? Find something else. So for you dancers and dance inclined people out there here's the scoop...

You are going to have to resign to the fact that this is a choreography oriented workout. However, this is not darren's dance grooves and she's not going devote the entire time to counting out and teaching you the dance because I think her point is you learn it and then just pop the dvd in and get straight to it. She breaks it down for you and I recommend you watch that part, but that doesn't really help you learn at all you'll forget once she starts at full speed. Use the format where she faces away from you. For sanity's sake the best way to learn this dance is to take 1-2 dances a week and learn them by just trying to follow along. So do warm up do two routines then stop it and go to the mat workout. Yes you will mess up but if you've gone to any dance class you know the key is to keep moving and then jump in again. She repeats the same choreography over and over throughout the song just switching sides so eventually it sinks in. After six weeks you should be able to get through six dances and some of you might linger here because after dance six it gets a bit difficult to get through all of this. That's ok eventually add the last two.

1.0 out of 5 stars not too impressed October 20, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
OK.. well I was super hyped when I saw Gweneth Paltrow on Oprah and heard her talking about this workout. I have been a professional dancer for almost 30 years now so this seemed like it would be perfect for me... So I ordered both of the videos.. the Dance and the Matt workout. There is a lot of cool things about this video but more importantly, I think the Dance workout is dangerous. No wonder Gweneth threw her knee out.. although I'm not sure if it was from doing this workout but I think it would be very easy to get injured performing this class. It is a great challenge just to complete all of the dances in a row and follow Tracey but this kind of workout is better done in a class with a live instructor and mirrors where you can see all angles as well as a proper floating floor to help you withstand all the jumping and direction changes. Tracy's cueing is not great either and that can be very frustrating as well as her constant pouting into the camera.
I am such a big fan of Karen Voight and The Method Pilates workouts with percise timing and cueing and a no nonsense aproach, that these workout DVD's left me very disappointed.
You WILL work up a sweat and the matt workout is great but I think you could do a much more efficient work out in one hour (rather than 2 with Tracey)with the same results if not better with Karen Voights "Slim in 10" dvd workout... as well as prevent yourself from being injured!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stick it out, IT GETS FUN! April 28, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been reading through these reviews and am really shocked that so many people give up because they can't memorize the dances right away...

I started this workout two weeks ago. It took me TWO DAYS to memorize THE FIRST combo (there are 8) - now I can do the first combo in my sleep.

It took me an hour to learn the second combo. Now I can do the second combo in my sleep.

The third took me 20 minutes to memorize. And the fourth was even easier. Now I have the first five combos memorized and plan to work up to the last three in the next few days.

I am uncoordinated and a TOTAL BEGINNER and 100% out of shape. When I first started, I felt like I was going to die after 2 and a half minutes. The next day I made it to four minutes. Today I hit 25 minutes. And good God, IT IS FUN!!!! I still have a long way to go, I think the whole workout is 45 minutes long - I'll be SO PROUD of myself when I get there.

SET GOALS FOR YOURSELF, DON'T GET FRUSTERATED! She's adorable and totally fun - the moves AREN'T that hard and the ones that are, well, you'll love them more once you actually DO get the hang of them!

I'm down ten pounds in two weeks.

Buy this and DON'T get frusterated when it takes you two days to get the first combination! Your brain gets accustomed to memorizing dance combos after a few days and they get way easier to memorize.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing.
Disappointing. I do Zumba and am very dance cardio savvy. This is way too complicated for anyone, there is no real instruction and no music. Would not recommend.
