Smile More uptodate beginner/intermediate step dvd's?

Hi there,
I have been stepping for a while now (a month or two) on golden oldie Reebok video by Gin Miller (the 80's). And since I am getting the hang of it I would like to switch over to something more uptodate, more now. This thread was last added to in 2002 so I hope something more 2006 is out there now!
Any ideas? Something not to complex as I am not really intermediate yet but not a beginner anymore.
Thanx a lot for your help!

Two favorite oldies with simple stepping and toning intervals (both only on VHS) are:
~ Weight Watchers Step and Sculpt (led by Aileen Sheron)
~ Susan Powter's Burn Fat & Get Fit

Also, Firm Volume 4 (aka Time Crunch) with Susan Harris and Kai Soremekun (of the infamous "dork dance") is a pretty easy-to-follow step and toning video, though it does have sections of pure weight work.

At one point, I had traded/sold 99% of my workout collection (Cathe, FIRMs, etc)..

One thing I did keep? Leslie Sansone's "Basic Stepping." It is 1990, so the hair and wardrobe is outdated. However, I like not feeling like a total spaz or afraid that I'm going to trip.

I do want to try Gin Miller's "Simply Step," as I hear it's doable.

Don't think I'll EVER make it back to Cathe's steps though..yikes!

Never say never. I find her basic step video to be absolutely awesome. And I have 2 left feet that like to collide with each other It made me believe Cathe was doable.

Starting over is never easy...

I think Kathy Kaehler is a fabulous instructor for entry-level steppers. I started out renting Kathy Kaehler Fitness System from the library and although the routine is VERY repetitious and simple, I found it to be a great introduction to stepping. I have a few of her other videos now and I still think she's good for beginners.

I really like Cathe Basic Step. A great 35 min workout, that covers the step very well.
