It's an intense lower body workout with ballet inspired moves. Because you work deep into muscles, it's designed to help you get that long lean body look that ballet dancers have. Elise is a good instructor with great cuing so you know what to do next at all times. I love the outdoor setting (instead of the inside of a studio for a change); it's great to do a workout that has been done outside to make you feel like it's Summer all year round and motivate you that little bit more.
I never thought this would be a workout that would be for me, but it's very enjoyable and fun and you feel the next day all those muscles you've used and I can't wait to see the results from this. I love it.
>The scenery is wonderful as other reviewers have said.
>The use of a chair and not a barre - when she switches to the other side to work the other leg, she physically moves the chair to the other side. In other ballet videos where they've used a barre, usually I have to pause the tape because I can't quite get my chair moved around fast enough to start working the other side (they just turn around and start doing the exercises; if I turn around I'm no longer facing the TV :-)).
>The fact that the voice cueing is done as a voice over, instead of by the person doing the exercises, this makes it VERY easy to follow
>Recognition all along the way that not everyone is as flexible - and continuous encouragement that with time flexibility will come
Overall, it is an excellent dvd and I'm glad I bought it.

Very good workout utilizing ballet. The instructor has great figure, and she is an example of what a regular practice can do. The exercises are harder than they look. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Morgan V. Madison

Great workout but not for beginner. I was shipped this by mistake on my part, but find that if I take in small segments it does the trick. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
