Advantages: Can be done in the comfort of your own home
Disadvantages: Slow, unenergized, repetitive
This DVD is brought to you by Beto Perez the so called inventor of Zumba. I was extremely dissatisfied with the whole thing.
I go to two Zumba classes a week ran by 2 different instructors and found this DVD slow and disappointing in comparison. I guess for beginners with no Zumba experience this would be helpful but not to anyone who takes their Zumba workouts seriously.
In the time we would do 3 dances in a real class the DVD covers only 1 dance. The real problem here is that they do the same 3 or 4 moves in each dance over and over which gets VERY boring VERY quickly. The whole point of Zumba is that it's energetic and vigorous but you just don't get that from this DVD. There is also points where the move changes but instead of showing us the new move we have a close up on one of the backing dancers smiling away and pretending they are having the best night of their lives.
If the slow repetitive moves aren't enough to put you off then the plastered on grins of the 'pretty people' will do, they look more in pain than happy. This is probably due to the constant cheesy lines from Beto and the singing along to the music.
I suggest you stay away from this DVD. Either get yourself along to a real class or YouTube some real instructors to follow along to.
Summary: Beto should have stayed as the 'creator' and not try his hand at DVDs
