If you are deciding between this and Just Dance for a workout, go with Just Dance.

  • Summary: This game is okay, but it isn't anything to get excited about. I did a lot of research on the best fitness dance games for Wii and settled on this game and Just Dance. It's really subpar compared to Just Dance. It's an ok dance work out, but some of the songs that they advertise on the box are actually for the mini-workouts not dance workouts. I was excited for "Good Vibrations," but it turns out that is just available for the kickboxing mini-workout.

So good!

  • Summary: I have the Wii dance and also a number of the Wii Fit editions...but Dance Workout is definitely the best dance exercise game that I have found for the Wii. Seriously...whoever designed this game did a fabulous job. It is difficult without being difficult to understand. The workouts make you put in the effort, without all of the confusion about what you're supposed to do and how you track your exercise...all while making you sweat.

Harder than I had hoped

Tamara Watson "Oh Joy", Amazon

  • Summary: This was much harder than I had hoped for. I am a 62 year old grandma who thought it would be fun to get back in shape by dancing. At regular speed I have a hard time keeping up. At slow speed it is too slow and keeps repeating the same step over and over until you kick it back on to normal speed, by that time I'm way behind again. I also presumed it was all dance.

Not perfect, but effective and fun!

  • Summary: First I'd like to say I have owned the game for a month, and I've played it pretty regularly but not every day. I haven't changed ANY of my eating habits, and in the 1 month that I have played this, I have lost 12 pounds! On top of that, I have had a blast while exercising, which is something I can't say about most kinds of workouts. If I rated the game on how effective it is for getting you moving, I'd give it 5 stars hands down.

Excellent collection of dancing, boxing, and mini-games

  • Summary: When Gold's Gym Cardio Workout first came out a year and a half ago, it pushed the bar forward and helped prove that there was a market for Wii Fitness Games. So the question is, does its sequel do the same? I'm happy to report the answer is yes. Gold Gym Dance Workout consists of three main types of exercises: a pure "dance workout", a "boxing workout", and "mini-games". In the "dance workout", you perform fast-moving choreographed dance steps using your arms and feet.

challenging workout!

  • Summary: First off, for all those that have posted above me, you CAN slow down and loop the segment you're having trouble with. It will repeat, in VERY slow motion, until you get the hang of the feet and arm movements. You can do this in the practice mode. Yes, what you do with the left foot you'll do with the right,so get ready to mirror your moves on the other side of your body- thats part of the latin dance! Is it as fun as just dance?

Dance workout vs other titles

Yazzle, Amazon
4 July 2013
  • Summary: Why I purchased: We enjoy working out on the Wii and like to keep it fresh by switching programs around. Gold's Gym Cardio Workout and Just Dance both get used at least once a week, and Dance Workout seems (in part) like a mix of these 2 programs. Pro's: - Seems more accurate in "getting" your moves than Just Dance if you're using double Wiimotes. - Latin dance and Zumba type of workouts are fun. - Interface (Gold's gym desk, etc..) is much nicer than Cardio Workout.

Great addition to Just Dance!!

S. Garth, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this game because I'm a big fan of both Just Dance and Gold's Gym Cardio Workout!! Boy am I pleased!! I wear a BodyBugg so my calorie burn is pretty accurate. Interestingly, my calorie burn from this game surpassed my average calorie burn from Just Dance. According to my Bodybugg, I was burning anywhere from 9 to 10 calories per minute- and that's on the beginning level!! With Just Dance, I usually burn between 7 to 9 calories per minute.

Have fun while you get your daily work out!

MyWay, Amazon

  • Summary: Someone made a comparison with Just Dance, well I think they are two different thing at all. I found this one more into an aerobics working out rather than only dance, as I would probably describe Just Dance instead. With Dance Workout I feel to accomplish more my daily workout when I cannot go to the gym or my Zumba lesson. Also, you can practice your Latin moves and learn basic steps.
