    I can't speak for the veteran trainer, but as a beginner, I thought this was a very useful course. Carol did an excellent job communicating and kept the lecture entertaining. I agree that it was unfortunate that I didn't have access to the handouts that keep getting mentioned.

    make sure you get out of your seat for this video! Not having the additional handout made it difficult for me to understand what combinations were possible and the rewind button made it much easier for me to understand as a teacher instead of just as a student. As they taught the choreography kinetically (as a student) joining was easy, then as they broke down how to evolve and introduce, it was difficult to understand ONLY because of how fast they are going in the video, i am sooo glad i have the ability to rewind and recap at my own pace.

    This is a wonderful course, extremely powerful and very easy to Understand. I'm very satisfy with it, I just wish that I could get the powerpoints because my hand was really exhausted writing and writing notes but at the the end of the day I learn even more i think. Thanks Carol was an extra for my carrier as a fitness Instructor.

    Donna is a great motivational speaker and she can explain her material very well. I got many 'light ball' moments watching the video. Only thing I was very disappointed with, was the quality of the video stream. The audio was very poor:(
