I love Kari, but I have to say that Danceworks is definitely for low-intermediates. So much marching in place in between combos. The dance moves are beatufiul and graceful and you will feel the fluidity of the workout, but it definitely doesn't get your heartrate up. The cardio is only 27 minutes without the warm-up and cool-down. The music is outstanding, some new and some music from PowerMax and Step & Stones II. The toning section is different for me, a more traditional exerciser who uses Cathe, Cory, Joyce Vedral type of workouts. She does a lot of balancing moves and stabilization. I would say it's more yoga/method type of exercises. Definitely not for me. I borrowed this tape this from a fellow VFer and am grateful to have tried it out before purchasing. I wish Kari would go back to her "Sweat Express" or "Two the Max" intensity workouts. This tape would be recommended as a light day dance workout. Personally, there are too many of them out there now, so I will skip this tape.
Kari is so beautiful in this video. Everything about her is graceful and lithe. A wonderful instructor. I wish she would go back to her higher intensity workouts.
