I love strictly and wanted to try dancing for myself and get fit at the same time. The other reviews made me skeptical but I purchased the dvd anyway. It is so much fun, I wouldn't say you have to be a dancer to enjoy it, as there are tutorials before each dance, some moves are a bit tricky but you're not going to be a professional dancer straight away. It's definitely a workout that you need to do a few times to pick up the moves properly but as your learning you're still moving around and exercising, so who cares if you look a bit silly....its so much fun!!
