DWTS Sizzle and Groove Latin Dance DVD Review

Torch Calories and Burn Fat With DWTS Sizzle & Groove Latin Dance DVD

Do you have Dancing With the Stars fever? Check out Self's review of the hit TV show's newest workout DVD!

What do Elizabeth Berkley, Bill Nye, Snooki, and yours truly all have in common? We're all on the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars, you guys! Okay, fine, so maybe I'm not officially on the bill — but I swear I could be after spending some time with Karina Smirnoff and Kym Johnson and their brand-new DVD DWTS: Sizzle & Groove Latin Dance. I've been sampling this new workout vid for the past few nights as I gear up for the new season, and let me tell you: It's crazy fun, crazy challenging, and a crazy-good workout. (Also: I'm a crazy bad dancer, but it doesn't even matter. For real.)

Sizzle & Groove Latin Dance, just released, had a lot to live up to: Its predecessor, Dancing With the Stars: Latin Cardio is currently the No. 1 bestselling dance fitness DVD of all time. Plus, DWTS buzz is at a high right now, with Season 17's premier slated for Sept. 24 and the new cast announced just last week. (We're pulling for Jessie Spano.)

Luckily, hosts Karina and Kym aren't just smokin' hot fitness role models; they're also really good at teaching dance. So even though the segments shown here look like they might be really difficult to master, they're actually . . . only kinda difficult to master. Plus, I really feel the burn, too, since the moves work so many different muscle groups.

My favorite part of the hour-long sweat session is the 15-minute "Salsa Sizzle" section, with lots of hip shaking, side kicks, and box-step action. Plus, even if I'm not gonna be on DWTS, I'll still be better prepared to tear it up on the dance floor at all the fall weddings I'm attending this year!
