Andrea leads this workout alone in a nice open set with fitness gadgets around the perimeter. There are five 10 minute segments that you can mix and match. There are 3 cardio dance routines and 2 dance inspired toning routines. This dvd comes with a cool 2 lb adjustable weighted belt. You wont need any other props for this workout.
I really like that all the segments are very different from one another. The cardio segments are: smooth and sexy moves, get fit club mix, and cardio dance party. The two toning segments are: dance toner and ballet sculpt. The whole dvd has an emphasis on the core-always a nice bonus!
I am not a dancer and am pretty choreo challenged but I did good on this w/o! The moves are pretty easy to catch onto and seemed like dancy versions of athletic moves-perfect for me! I did the cardio w/ the belt on the rebounder and got a kick butt 30 min cardio w/o! The routines move right along and arent boring or repetitve IMO. The toning segments included nice standing ab work, unwieghted upper and lower body work, and some good balance challenges.
I like Andrea as a lead-she has a great personality and is just as cute as a bug. She cues well - I would def get other w/o's from her. I would rate this a low intermediate w/o done as is. But you could easily amp the cardio up by using a rebounder or making your movements bigger & more intense. You could add dumbbells to the strength segments if you wanted to. I really like the belt and see myself using it for many other w/o's and on the rebounder often.
