During the workouts, Jennifer still introduces each step with the feet first, followed by adding the arms. And she does the typical build of multiple steps for each routine. To learn the routines, I focus on learning the steps first and then I add the arms in later attempts.
Jennifer is an excellent instructor. She does a great job of providing good advance cues for step changes. She also cues "left or right" that is the opposite of her left or right (mirror form), so it is easy to follow her lead.
Potential customers may be put off by the fact that this is a hip hop dance routine. Never fear. I really liked mixing things up from the usual Latin and Jazz routines. But, be ready for a lot of hip action and a TON of sweat!
I am at an age (35.10) and weight where my knees do not tolerate a lot of abuse. I was still able to do all of the routines or I could easily modify what Jennifer was doing to be a little more knee friendly. (No frog stretches for me!)
All in all, I highly recommend this DVD for people who want some exercise with a lot of variation and a high fun factor.

Lets have a Hip Hop Party
I picked this baby up yesterday on my way out of Walmart. I remembered reading a review that said it was a kick butt workout. I love to dance & I like it to be easy enough to follow ... Dancing with the Stars is just to hard to follow for me. I got it for under $10 which is always a great deal to me.
