The dances are taught facing you but the teacher is not teaching using mirror image techniques. I found it easy to copy her i.e. when she is using her right, you use your left and ignore her spoken references to left and right, which are quite often unfortunately. The turns are a bit confusing though. If you have poor co-ordination or little experience of dancing this DVD may be too difficult and you may get fed up trying. If however you consider yourself a good dancer and fancy a challenge then go for it! I personally think the dances should have been learn't as if viewed from the back of the class. The dances are fast and the finished sequence only takes up about a third of your average song, but I'm sure it will look very cool when you master them. I've been through it all once, and didn't do too badly - I don't think, but I need a lot more practice concentrating on one routine at a time.
Also, it should read "anyone over 25 - forget it - you're past it". It's very young, very cool and Kate Price is unfriendly, detached - probably just young. This DVD should definitely not be confused with the over 25s fitness videos. Obviously it is a "Dance Masterclass" - but please provide additional accurate information.
