in•struc•tion: detailed information telling how something should be done.

What's it all about?

“Dance instruction is so much more than just showing someone footprints of where to step or how to be flashy or spin as fast as possible. It's about partnering, connection, positioning, music, timing, leading, following, etiquette, having fun and personalized attention from the instructor - all at the same time. After many years and countless hours of research, I have found the keys to unlocking potential in a rapid manner and I developed a system that allows me to share these secrets in an efficient manner that truly brings success to those that want to make changes, quickly. Please join me when you’re ready to step up your game and show the world what you’re capable of.” - Shawn Trautman

Dance Lesson Videos for Beginners

Save Time.

When you learn to dance from Shawn Trautman, you absolutely Save Time! Each dance lesson video is set up in such a way that you get everything you need in the order you need it and you get the perfect amount of practice time. You save travel time, practice time, the time it takes for others to learn in a group setting, & the time spent socializing at dance lessons. You get in, learn to dance & go! It's THAT easy. As a bonus, you get to learn at home, on your own schedule and you have permanent access to the instruction whenever you need a refresher.

Dance Better.

If you want to Dance Better, you're in the right place! Shawn Trautman's dance lesson videos have a sole focus - to get YOU looking good & dancing better. Unlike traditional ballroom dance lessons, group lessons or dance classes, we make sure you learn to dance in the most efficient manner possible. In-person lessons have an incentive to be inefficient - the longer it takes you to learn, the more it costs. If you truly want to dance better, start with our beginner dance lesson videos and give yourself the best chance at dancing success from the beginning.

Shawn Trautman says:

"Not only am I an instructor, but I'm also an avid consumer who loves to dance! I'm also someone who's been frustrated by the large number of learn to dance videos (that I own) that failed to deliver what they should have. I vowed I'd find a better way and that's exactly what we did and why our business has exploded in recent years. Every dance I teach I have first-hand experience with & I make it a point to deliver the ins and outs of the instruction you really need to succeed on the dance floor. The last thing I want to do is bore you w/dance moves, whether country, swing, west coast swing, or line dancing, that you'll never see in a club or with theory that has no real-world value. The dances and moves you'll learn here you'll use the rest of your life!" - Shawn Trautman, 2019 | More about Shawn Trautman
