The Kukuwa Dance Workout is very exciting to me. It keeps you moving and I learned some pretty cool dances at the same time. I dont usually break a sweat, but this Dance Workout changed all of that. I am so glad my friend introduced me to this so a quickly made this puchase. It is worth it. It is something quick and anyone can keep up with it. Trust me, if I can keep up so can you lol.
Easy moves, nonstop cardio

I usually make up my own cardio dance. I would never take a dance class because I am not good at remembering tricky sequences. This is a nice dance DVD because the moves are so simple and you move right and left and forward and back and shake your hips which is pretty much a no brainer. I also appreciate that you dont need too much space. I like the third dance best and Kukuwa is very encouraging and motivating.I didnt think it was so much like other African Dance. Seems more Latin and I like that because it is better on my back.
Outstanding way to do cardio for those with dance background

I disagree with the reviewer who said the instructor slowed down too much, doing high fives and the frequent interruptions. Everybody knows if you dont want to stop moving, you run in place or jump rope. Or get water or wipe the sweat off your face. Not hard to figure out.
In terms of the workout, cueing could be better, however, it is a DVD and rewind is always an option. It is presupposed with ownership of the DVD that you will do this more than once and, therefore, you will pick up the moves.
This DVD dovetails nicely with other types of dance instruction, including W. African and Latin/Caribbean. I like the music. It is really one heck of a workout....sweat, sweat, sweat, and the movement IS constant. She does a good job of addressing the core with fun moves that dont really feel like hard work until you wake up the next day.
I have an excellent W. dance background (ballet mostly) and find this to be a very challenging routine, have done it more than half a dozen times and am still mastering the moves for segment one. This is exactly what I need to keep it fun and challenging. However, I also take W. African dance twice a week in my local community, as well as samba, so maybe this tape will not resonate with folks who arent into the moves or music of Africa.
An excellent purchase, IMHO. FANTASTIC instructor!!!!!!!
be ready to sweat!

I really enjoy this dvd. The music encourages you to keeping moving. The dances are pretty easy to catch on and Im not a great dancer. The first time I used the dvd, I was sweating in the inside of my elbows! And it was just the warmup. Worth the investment!
