"not a dancer" 2010-08-02
Bought this video in a store - looked like so much fun, said it's for beginners - N O T. The cover
made it sound like I could learn to dance and get fit at the same time, but the instructions seemed
to be more for people who already had some moves. I've given the video several attempts,
knowing that picking up anything new is a challenge, yet I can't seem to make this work for me. I
know I'm not the most graceful person, but I was a cheerleader for several years so I'm not
completely uncoordinated. It's going back on the shelf... maybe one day I'll give it another shot.
"This is slightly slower than normal hip hop dance, but it is still a great workout!" 2010-07-26

Dance Off the Inches: Hip Hop Party is a little slow compared to other hip hop workouts, but it
still is extremely cardio and a lot of fun to do. Jennifer Galardi leads, and she has a really fun
personality and teaching style. The workout is divided into three totally different hip hop styles
that are each fun to do in their own way. The sections on the DVD are:
Warm Up - Jennifer starts out with a funky style march before going to some chest and hip
isolations in this warm up. Then she'll finish up with one or two more easy dance moves. It's all
very basic, but it's still effective.
Basic Hip Hop - This routine is a lot of fun, consisting of some funky dance moves that are
pretty easy to pull off and really fun to do. It consists of easy moves such as slides, marches,
stomps, and butterflies, but Jennifer adds upper body style to make it more cardio and more
funky. It was definitely, my favorite of all the routines.
Sexy Smooth - Now this routine seemed to be a mixture of Jazz, Striptease, and Arabian
dancing. It didn't move too much over the floor, but it still managed to get your heart rate up.
There are a lot of moves in this dance that involve the hips, but there were also a few body roll
moves, kick ball change moves, and more. It definitely had a sensual feel to it which is a bit
different from normal hip hop workouts.
World - Last was this routine that fused hip hop with Latin and Bollywood dance moves. It was a
lot of fun as it contained lunges, box steps, chest pumps, and more with some very fun arms that
made it all the more fun to do. This was definitely the highest impact of the three workouts, and
it was a really nice fusion of dance. NOTE: This is the same routine as the Cardio Dance
download that is available here on Amazon, on exerciseTV, and on Jennifer Galardi's website.
Cool Down - The cool down was also amazing. It had so many feel good stretches that stretched
out the entire body. It was a great way to finish the workout.
Step Guide - Also included on the DVD is a step guide that breaks down some of the moves
slowly in order to allow you to learn them slowly and use them in the workout. This makes it a
great DVD for beginner exercisers/dancers while the intermediate/advanced dancers/exercisers
may just want to jump right into the workout. NOTE: The step guide is not included in the
downloaded version of this DVD available here on Amazon Video on Demand.
Overall, this was an amazing workout although it went slower than normal hip hop workouts.
The three sections were all fun yet different enough to keep the interest of the viewer. I would
highly recommend it to all levels of exercisers and hip hop dancers. It truly is a blast to do!
"It's a Challenge" 2010-07-16
By V. Bryan (Phoenix, AZ)
Love the video. It's hard though! So if you are looking for an easy work out this is probably not
I love the moves. Working on mastering them...
"Good for beginners" 2010-07-13
The video shows simple techniques to start with, it is really helpful for a beginner that doesn't
have experience in hip hop. It is fun and energectic. The best part of the video is I could keep
repeating the chapter to get myself familiar with the beat and the move. I really enjoy the video
and recommend to those people who doesn't know how to dance.
"sweat it out!!!" 2010-07-12
i totally love this workout. its easy to learn if u know a li'l bit of dancing. people who think they
can never dance might not want to try this one. i love dance workouts and this is one among my
other dance workouts. i try different workouts everyday (this is one way to lose weight faster.
confuse ur muscles, dont let them guess what kinda workout u r gonna give them today. surprise
ur muscles with something new everyday).
this dvd might not be a very good option for people who r really fit and have been working out
for years. i've been working out for 2 yrs now, and i have done rigorous workouts like
kickboxing. and this workout made me sweat a lot. and i can feel my muscles working. what
more can i ask for?
it's definitely a wonderful workout to have in ur collection.
