I workout 5-6 days per week, and did not find it to my liking as a fitness practice because I am not a trained dancer. The pacing is simply too difficult and I am not familiar with the dance "terms" that are often used throughout the DVD. I can understand why so many ppl rated it poorly, especially if they do not have dance background. This product would definately be too frustrating for basic fitness needs.
It should be known that some of the instructors are better than others. Kherington is awesome.
1. A large dance studio for a living room
2. Years of dance experience
3. The ability to learn a routine after seeing it only a few times
I have none of the above so I could not enjoy this video. The routines have people moving around a large space and traveling across the room. It's impossible to do in a average-sized living room. The "teachers" break down the routines into pieces, but only show a piece twice before they move on to the next. QUICK! I thought I would be able to learn it after watching repeatedly and rewinding, but I got frustrated and never used it again. They should market this to experienced dancers.
Fans of the movie might enjoy the actors leading the workout segments, but while these three kids are good dancers, they are FAR from experienced fitness instructors, and that shows in their cueing: they use a lot terminology that would be unfamiliar to anyone who isn't also a dancer, and give very few useful directions. (Kristy, who does the African dance, is probably the LEAST bad.) They also stop and start a lot, which makes it difficult to establish flow.
The one strength of this DVD is that if you can actually do the moves, it's decent exercise. I was able to follow along enough to burn some calories, but compared to alternatives like Debra Bono's African Dance series, CRUNCH Carido Salsa, Zumba, and the like, it's FRUSTRATING and lacks continuity.
Bottom line: I do not recommend the Fame Dance Workout. :(
Not for someone looking for an aerobics type workout.
