There is no warm-up so you go directly to the first workout.
Latin-This 15 minute workout is divided into three 5 minute workouts. The first one is Rumba, the second Cha-Cha, and the third was a Cha-Cha/Merengue mix. The back of the box said to expect Mambo, but I didn't really see any Mambo steps except for maybe one. Maybe. The Rumba is easy and beginners could probably do it. Cha-Cha is a bit quicker and it slightly resembles the Cha-Cha routine on the "Cardio Dance" DVD. The Cha-Cha Merengue was nice, but it features some moves that are more ab toning and less dance. Kym Johnson leads this, and she is a better instructor than in the other video. However, this section just seemed too feminine. There were no male backups and the moves were a little slinky. Focuses on toning abs.
Tango-I LOVED this section! Led by Dmitry Chaplin, it had the same format as the Latin with three 5 minute workouts. The moves were SO fun. The music was GREAT! You really felt like you were really dancing! Unfortunately, this routine has no real purpose except for teaching some really fun steps. It is not cardio at all, and while it tries to tone legs, it fails. At least it does for me.
Freestyle-This routine, led by Lacey Schwimmer IS a full routine. It has NO toning whatsoever, but it takes Jive, Latin, and other steps and adds a hip-hop style to them. This was a lot of fun, and it was the one routine on the DVD that really got my heart rate up. It is the only routine on the DVD that I could actually call a workout.
Cool Down-Once again, there are no male dancers-not even Dmitry. I dunno, I think Cal Pozo (the director/choreographer) was going for just women on this DVD. The stretching wasn't that great. It was more of just relaxing moves. You don't stretch ANY muscles except the glutes, and for a split second the hamstrings. Great choreography in this video. Unfortunately, it only has light cardio/toning benefits.
