I got this on the exchange and didn't expect anything great simply because I'd never heard of Andre Houle before. But I'd have to say this is one of my favorite non-Cathe step tapes. The choreography is fun and interesting, the cueing is very well thought-out, and - thankfully! - he divides the choreography into two sections instead of taking it from the top twenty times like many other CIAs.
I haven't done the second section, but the step section alone makes this one of my favorite tapes these days.
I was mildly disappointed to see that Andre wasn't quite as good looking as he was on the cover (CIA covers always make everyone look different), but quickly stopped caring when I saw how well he cued and how likable he was.
