Whirl a silk veil to the rhythm, or drape it around you like a sari!

Format:DVD
The good news first: unlike other Bollywood workout dvds (of which there are few) there's no poor dubbing or problems with the synchronisation of the music here. Everything sound related is well intact with "Bollyrobics". English instruction is offered in addition to Hindi and Spanish. That being said, I found the title a tad bit misleading. With the add on of "robics", I assumed that this dvd would be something of a dance-cardio fusion that might be fun for a high impact workout. While the warm up and cool down are alright, the actual workout is not what I'd consider an intense calorie-burner. That is of course,if you're looking for cardio activity. There are three dances to learn and each is taught step by step, with an awful lot of stop and go. This is great for learning the dance. It certainly is fun, and of course any activity at all is good for burning a few calories here and there. But be warned that even when one has mastered the dance and does it full speed there are still pauses and slower parts to the dance, so its not a continual impact routine. I just thought I'd mention it since the title might lead one to believe otherwise. That being said, if you like learning dances, this might be the dvd for you. I think its a decent intro to Bollywood dancing though too basic for experienced afficiandos. On the other hand, those with no experience in dance might find it a bit frustrating at first but I think after a few goes, the steps should start to come together with greater ease. In short, if you like to dance, or if you're looking for a lighter workout to augment your cardio routine, this is a good dvd. Bollywood fans take note: the music choices are not that great, in my opinion. Most music is from Weber's "Bombay Dreams", the only other Bollywood piece used is from "Kal Ho Naa Ho".

Format:DVD
This was used as a step-by-step approach to teaching Year 5 children three different Indian Dances. The DVD is broken down into a warm-up, step-by-step lesson for each dance, the full dance routine/workout and ends with a challenging stretch cool-down. We taught the entire year group (60 children) simultaneously using the hall projector system over a term, culminating in a 'Bollywood Production' for parents and the local community, with the Bollyrobics routines as central to the performance (the ability to turn off the clearly read instructions to leave only the soundtrack was invaluable). The children loved the dances, loved the DVD and performed so well we ended up in 3 local newspapers, interviewed on BBC Radio Sussex and had a BBC South Today TV crew in to film the event for broadcast! Many of the children (and several other schools) have bought the DVD themselves as a result. An excellent product for aerobic exercise and building stamina ... as well as teaching boys and girls to love dance. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars I just love this 25 April 2008
Format:DVD
This is the best exersice dvd I have (and I have many). Bollyrobics is really about dancing, not just basic aerobic moves with Indian music playing, like some other Bollywood exersice videos.

There is three great dances and I like them all. The third one is my favourite! It's quite short, but I repeat it always three to six times!

I really do recommend this for all who are looking exersice video, that has really something to do with dancing. Bollyrobics is fun and sweaty to do!

4.0 out of 5 stars bollyrobics-dance workout by Julia Casper 11 Jan 2008
Format:DVD
Found this a very good, clearly set out dvd. Found the excersise/dance adequate for people who don't want to go mad, but would like to keep reasonably fit. The warm up and cool down are just right. I enjoyed the music and the movements very much, and sometimes do a pilates workout before this, so then it all knits together very satisfactorily! You definitely notice the toning up and there is a small amount of cardiovascular, especially for the newcomer to fitness. A very good dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars really fun way of exercising 22 Mar 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD is great. It's quite gentle which is good for people afraid of hard exercise (like me!) and it gradually works up from learning the steps to a run through of a whole dance, when you realise that you have actually been working really hard and that it was fun! With 3 dances there's plenty to learn and the music is great, too. I really recommend this fun workout. (even my boyfriend has tried it!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Bollyrobics: Highly recommend! 18 Mar 2008
Format:DVD
This is a great and fun cardio workout. Divided into 3 sections, each to a great song with a super beat, this is a top notch DVD. Each section has a warm up and cool down, plus a step by step routine break down and a section where you get to put it all together. The instructions are superb, and clear. I very highly recommend this DVD to anyone who wants a fun, fresh workout.

I bought this dvd to learn a bit of bollywood style dance to teach to a junior belly dance class and it was great, though it does help to have a bit of belly dance background. I love the music and the choreography. The youngsters are learning the dances (i have asked permission from the makers) and look fab doing them. It's fun and lively and a good introduction to bollywood style dance. A follow up is planned for release in 2009.

The moves are easy to grasp. I prefer 2 of the routines to the other one - which is very slow and hasn't got much tempo to it. Read more
