The 411 by Maria:

Thankfully I did this one after the Step Up Dance Workout video because I was feeling bad about myself.  As far as dance videos go I was completely able to keep up with this one. The moves while not complicated definitely get you moving and smiling. I am extremely uncoordinated and have difficulty picking up dance routines but could keep up with Bill Blanks Jr and the gang. So, if you can pick up basic moves you may feel that you need something more complicated than this. As for me, I could keep up but the moves weren't very fluid. However, this is probably the first dance workout DVD, I have been able to do. Most are usually way to complicated but the movements are slow and Billy's smile and laugh is contagious. 


Step Up Dance Workout

OK...well...this video is for the dancer in you. Great moves if you love dancing. I really wish I could do it because it looks really cool.  Loved watching but I could not pick up the basic moves at all. Plus, I felt that they expect you to know a little something about dancing. They do give you some direction but than you move right in and this uncoordinated individual could never keep up with this.  Part 2, the Latin Groove which was 21 minutes was the only part I could come close to getting. It was fun and sexy and I could see how you could get into great shape by doing this every day.

If you are someone who gets discouraged when you can't get the moves don't bother but if you love dancing and want a challenge go for it. Great dance moves taken from the movie Step Up Revolution.

Disclosure: I received complimentary DVD's for my honest opinion.
