    Disappointed

    The music is very repetitive, mostly just a line or two of rhythm, so not at all fun.

    She teaches only one move--a simple rumba step. Everything else, you're supposed to pick up on your own. I am quicker than average at picking up dance steps, and I was able to pick up the merengue routine by watching, but not the salsa moves. I ended up looking up how to do the salsa online.

    I am mid-50s and in okay, but not super shape. For me, the 20 min. merengue workout was equivalent to a moderate walk on a flat surface. However, the spine roll on the warm-up was done so fast that had I tried to keep up, I'm afraid I would have hurt my back.

    The instruction is done with a voice over and includes periodic fake-sounding laughs.

    So if you're quick at picking up dance moves and just starting out with cardio, this might work for you.

    Overweight? good workout & fun music

    not complicated, easy directions, I'm over 100 lbs overweight & this provides a great cardio workout. I do the warm up and one routine after work. It's fun & my co-workers have joined me on occasion!
