I just got done doing this workout for the first time -- and loved it!

I've had wonderful results using Mary Helen Bowers' Ballet Beautiful Total Body Workout and Ballet Beautiful Body Blast workouts together (which I liken to the results that many get from Tracy Anderson's workouts, in terms of the lengthening and tightening that you get), and had been eagerly awaiting this new one, which I pre-ordered from Amazon a few months ago. (In my reviews for those two other DVDs, I've mentioned the positive results I've gotten from doing Mary Helen's workouts in the past; when I was doing just those two workouts and no cardio, I lost several inches.) I'm really pleased with this new one, and know that I'll be using it a lot!

When you go to the main menu, you have the option of playing either the entire workout or individual chapters. Whether you choose the individual segments or the whole thing, you also have the option of playing the workout with Mary Helen's voice + music or just with the music. This is a nice feature since the counting on her other two DVDs can be a bit repetitious after doing the workouts a few times.

The individual segments (if you choose to do them one at a time) are:

* Warm-Up (about 8 minutes)
* Core Workout (about 11 minutes)
* Upper Body (about 16:30 minutes)
* Lower Body (about 13 minutes)
* Total Body (about 11 minutes; this is really the last cool-down stretch)

The entire workout comes in at 62 minutes, and all you need to do the workout is a mat.

OK I have reviewed the other Ballet Beautiful products but... this one deserves a glowing review as well! As many people have pointed out, Mary Helen Bowers is a tiny little army of a person, and the things this lady make look easy are only truly impressive once you attempt them yourself (my male roommate, who has no problem with his daily chin-ups, push-ups, etc., doing her arm workout had me rolling on the floor laughing - "Good God, when will it end?!"). BUT that being said, the first time you finally do one of her workouts (or even one segment) all the way through without stopping to die a bit, you will feel like a million bucks - and along the way, you'll start looking like it too! She knows what she's doing, and as a result, you get every last drop of benefit out of the effort and investment you put into her workouts. If you stick with her recommendations and methods to the letter, you will never find yourself thinking, "Why isn't this working?" - instead you'll find yourself wondering how on earth just 15 minutes at a time is working so WELL.

Some specific tips/notes about this DVD:
1) Yes, the cardio parts are very dance-based and it may seem complicated or overwhelming if you're a total non-dancer. Be forgiving and patient with yourself and accept that it's going to take time for your body to learn new ways of moving - there's no rush! Also, if you find you're really having difficulty following her movements, think of Mary Helen like a mirror. So don't, for example, lift your left foot when she lifts her left foot; rather, lift your RIGHT foot so that you are mirroring her movements. It's way easier to do it this way (note: obviously if you're doing this, ignore her verbal instructions regarding right and left since they'll all be backwards to you).

I am so disappointed about this video. After LOVING her "classic" workout and most of her "body blast" set, I pre-ordered this and looked forward to doing it for days. Maybe it's my fault, I'm not sure what I expected out of a "cardio" workout, but her other workouts are so specific and toning and this one just isn't doing it for me. The footwork is complicated, like ballet I'm sure, but I struggled too much with the moves to get my heart rate up. I could do it several times and get the hang of it maybe, but it seems like my time (and anybody else's who is having this problem) would be better off using the time doing other cardio.

Also, without dance training and very specific instruction on how to do each move safely, some of the things in this workout just don't seem safe to do repeatedly. The moves are higher impact than were in her other videos and the odd landing in the plies caused pain in my knees. I'm not mobility impaired or anything, I'm just a normal person, but like a lot of women, I have some lingering issues with my knees that I have to pay attention to. Part of why I loved her other videos so much is that they were challenging but never hurt my joints or made me worry that I even could. They were very gentle but also very effective.

Maybe this workout is more like other "cardio" DVDs, but if you are buying it on the basis of her other workouts, you should know that there are some big differences. So, be advised. I'll give it three stars because the production value is good, it does seem to be in keeping with other available workout DVDs, and pretending to be a ballerina was pretty fun. The moves are graceful, even some of the stretches, so that was a nice change.
