I was a little afraid of this video as it has a reputation of being one of Cathe's hardest in terms of complex choreography. To my surprise, I actually got through the whole thing without having to rewind once. While the moves are a bit dancey with a lot of mambos, cha chas and pivots, she breaks them down efficiently enough so that it was easy for me to do and to remember.
The Step Blast Challenge puts all four combos together with "blast" sequences -- high impact drills -- in between sequences. This was fun and really got up the intensity level. It wasn't up to IMAX intensity, but good enough where my legs really felt it at the end.
As with all of Cathe's recent DVDs, I love the music. There's some notable 80's songs like "Video Killed the Radio Star", "1999", etc.
Cathe is very cheerful and expert in her cueing.
