My friends and I used to watch Darrin''s Dance Grooves a lot when we were younger and I was excited to buy it and try it out again 15 years later! The dances are pretty complicated but it''s fun to do with others and you feel pretty accomplished (and cool!) when you get a move down. Darrin goes pretty fast, but they do break it down into sections which make it a little easier. Depending on your dance background the choreography could be really easy or really difficult to grasp. I have zero dance background but I''m able to get a hang of some of it (I might have to modify a few moves here and there). My sister and I actually learned "Bye Bye Bye" in one day from this video and performed it at our older sister''s wedding and it was a hoot! Definitely a workout too!

Unless you have a DVD player with the ''A/B repeate'' feature and slow motion/frame-by-frame playback capabilities, I wouldn''t even consider this video. But even if you have such equipment, I think I would still give this video a pass. I have a DVD player with the capabilities I just mentioned but even with that, the video is still frustrating and difficult to learn from, for reasons I am about to go into. I gave the video 2 stars, but it should really be 1 and a half.
The worst complaint I have about this video is the shoddy camera work. They tried to give it a flashy, ''MTV''-style presentation, but it really doesn''t work here. Darrin could be showing you a move that requires you to do something with your feet, but the camera is pointed at his upper body and you can''t even see his feet!!! I mean, how do they expect you to learn this way? Sometimes when the camera isn''t where it is supposed to be, you can sometimes see what the background dancer''s feet are doing, which is even worse because they''re not always doing the same thing as Darrin!!! To its credit, Darrin will usually go over the moves more than once and the spots that had ... camera angles are usually fixed the second time around, but on the second go-around, there are all new...camera angles. This means that you are constantly going back and forth, because neither time does the camera stay steady enough so that you can watch it all the way through.
Second complaint is what so many others have mentioned - since Darrin is facing you, you have to do the exact opposite of whatever he does. I originally didn''t think this would be a big deal when reading the negative comments, but it really is confusing and un-nerving. A much better approach would have been to implement multiple camera angles, so you could watch from whatever angle you needed to.
Third complaint - when Darrin is showing you the moves, he does it slower than what you normally would do it in real time. At the end, he shows you how to do the dance moves to the actual speed of the music. Only problem with that is that instead of keeping the camera focused the whole time on Darrin and his background dancers, the camera cuts between Darrin and his dancers, to the artists of the music (Britney, N''Stink, etc), to both Darrin and the artists split screen (with one on top and one on bottom). Besides this being confusing as heck, sometimes when the camera cuts in on the artists, they''re not even doing the dance moves in question, so you completely miss parts of it!!!
Fourth complaint - the only thing this video shows you is how to dance to the chorus of certain songs (Bye Bye Bye, Crazy, Digital Getdown, etc). So, if you''re looking for some basic dance steps, this is definitely not for you.
Overall, the whole presentation of this dance video is sloppy and unacceptable and should be avoided. I must point out that it IS possible to learn what this video has to teach, but it''s not fun!! My advice to anyone who is considering making an instructional dance video is to KEEP THE DAMN CAMERA STILL!!!
The only thing I have to compare this to on DVD is Hip Hop Shop, which much better than this, but also suffers from some of the same problems (mainly the wandering camera) as this one does.

Darrin''s Dance Grooves is pretty darn bad. Offensive, even.
There is very little dance instruction. Most of the DVD is taken up with what amounts to infomercial material. Britney loves Darrin, N''Snyc loves Darrin, etc.
The actual workout includes a warm up, followed by a break down of small portions of four MTV video dance routines. The warm up is horrible. Darrin doesn''t count on the eight. Unwatchable, or at least - unlistenable. You have to hope they dubbed the music in afterwards, otherwise, Darrin doesn''t have much of an ear.
The "dance instruction" consists of running through the routine twice - with Darrin counting left when he''s showing right (i.e., not allowing for the mirror image), and not giving much in the way of description other than "1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, ok, we''re moving on". The camera work frequently fails to show the movement. He then jumps to the actual video, with his class spliced in. Then he informs the viewer that if we wish to perfect our groove thing, we can always rewind. The routines include turns and floor moves, i.e., fairly complex movements that aren''t broken down.
It concerns me that this DVD is being marketed to a pre-teen and teen audience that could be permenantly convinced they "can''t dance" because they''ve been victimized by Darrin''s non-existent cueing and teaching syle.
If you''re looking to learn beginner jazz/funk/hip hop I would suggest Madonna Grimes, Culture Shock Hip Hop, Hip Hop Body Shop, Calvin Wiley, even the MTV Grind tapes over this. They all have their problems, but they''re light years ahead of Darrin Grove. He''s got zero "street cred" with me.

This is a direct quote, "Look, if we''re going to fast for you, remember, you can just slow down, rewind the tape, and get busy on your OWN time." I''m sorry... I thought this was my own time. I bought the tape knowing that the moves are difficult, but with 10 years of dance training, I figured I could handle it. Well, typically, when learning a routine, you would be behind the choreographer with a mirror in the front. Of course that''s not possible on video formatting, but the angles really are horrible. There are quite a few shots that are close-ups, and it''s impossible to see the footwork. Also, Darrin''s directions are quite confusing. He''s telling you "right" or "left", and the dancers are going in that direction... what they should be doing is a mirror image (or at least giving the opposite direction). Most professional chreographers understand this concept. The steps are not prefaced by saying, "Here''s what we''re going to do." And when they are, he only describes a few steps in. When running through the routine still at half-speed, he only gives the count; no directions. This is especially difficult when you are mid-turn or facing the side. The dancers make it look very easy, but remember they''ve rehearsed a million times (and they''re paid to look professional). My final gripe is that about a third of the video is an autobiography. I didn''t really need to know that they had to wear hard hats while filming Brittany Spears, or that it was 20 degrees while working with Jordan Knight... that''s what behind the scenes, or "Making the Video" is for. Nor did I need to see the seminar in Florida. If you''ve seen the infomercial, you know what I''m talking about. If you have a LOT of time to rewind and scrutinize the video, go ahead. OR you can just tape the music videos and review them over and over... and over!

I am, admittedly, not a very good dancer, but this DVD made me seem 10 times worse! It''s hard to know if you''re doing a move right when everything is mirrored, plus there are even some moves that aren''t explained at all (my friend definitely got a kick out of seeing me do some arm movements from "Crazy"). I wasn''t at all expecting to be able to dance (actually, I''m just obnoxious and I still listen to ''N Sync, and I figured it wouldn''t hurt to be more obnoxious and learn some dance moves). I remembered the video from infomercials a couple years ago, and this was mostly just for fun. And it was HILARIOUS at some parts. Someone mentioned infomercial- that''s exactly what we thought! Before each actual "instruction" part, Darrin tells us all about who he has choreographed for and how many people love him and what he got for Christmas and even after all that, we go back to the screen with Darrin and he''s just like "ha, did I do that? *smile* *wink at camera*". It was bad. But so good. If you''re nostalgic, get this video to hear some songs from the ghost of the 90''s, don''t really expect to learn anything, and just have fun laughing at the editing (someone clearly made a recent discovery of putting the same face on a screen 5 times..). Someday, I will be at the perfect level of intoxication to show everyone my slammin'' moves that I learned from Darrin!!

The first annoying thing about this video is having to sit through about 15 minutes or so of Darrin''s information about himself. He doesn''t seem to realize that people get the video to learn about dancing, not to learn about him. Secondly, the moves are presented rapid-fire, with very little repetition. You have to hit the rewind button every 5 seconds to catch what just happend. He doesn''t really show how to do the dances; he just shows what they look like. There''s a huge difference. If he tried to "teach the stars" the way he teaches his video audience, he''d never have made 2 cents. This video was a huge disappointment and a total waste of money.

I found this to be very distracting when I''m trying hard to watch his every move and then all of a sudden I don''t see how his feet are moving anymore! One of the moves being shown showed him spinning around one time a full circle, but no emphasis was given to show the correct way to spin so that your feet end up in the correct position at the end of the spin. I wouldn''t recommend this for a beginner.

This is very fast paced with funky camera movements (not ''instructional-friendly''). The biggest turn-off for me was that you have to move ''opposite'' of what you see in screen because they are ''facing you'' and doing their ''right/left'' moves. I am used to seeing the instructors in my other workout video move in ''mirror opposite''... Each little move take a good load of patience to learn, so you will end up pausing the video most of the time. Fun moves though, and gives you a sense of ''accomplishment'' when you finally get to dance the routine.
