Affordable and convenient!

"We really enjoyed the dances taught in this one and would recommend this lesson to anyone! As we've recently taken private lessons from the Arthur Murray studio downtown, I'll say this option has many advantages and is a lot more affordable. We like that we can go back and practice as many times as we need to and it doesn't cost us more. It's a private lesson that you can take and repeat anytime. We'll defintely be back for more and we love what you do!"

Easy-to-follow

Besides covering the dance steps in an easy-to-follow way, the instruction for beginners also covers leading and following. The dance videos I checked out of the library showed dance positions, but didn't explain how these positions are used to lead the lady and follow the man. The instructors seem like very nice people. Keep up the good work."

Excellent!

"My wife and I are new to ballroom dancing in the last year. We've taken some lessons, but found that we needed the extra help of videos that we can use on our own schedule in our home and we've tried a bunch of them. This DVD and the whole series of new videos from Shawn Trautman have been a godsend and much more useful to us than the others we've tried. We are actually doing the dances within a short time and having fun, rather than getting aggravated with one another. Trautman's emphasis on the differing roles of leader and follower and the very clear demonstrations of those roles have helped us enormously. These DVDs include much more music and time to practice the new steps than most videos, rather than just watching an instructor do a step and go to another step. We like this video a lot and strongly recommend it. On a side note, the logistics/timing of shipping and subsequent email communications with the company were, after many frustrations with other online outfits, the best we've seen. "

Basics you can use again and again

"Before this Ballroom Dancing DVD I didn't realize there are so many common elements in different dances. Little things like how to hold your hands and where to place your hands can be used in more than one dance. I had no idea how important those little things could be, or how easy they can be to master. This is a good starting point for any beginner."

I was spending a fortune on private lessons

"I came across Shawn's cha-cha video on Amazon and read the reviews. Because I had a multitude of questions, I called the directly to the company and spoke directly to Shawn. The conversation was a long one... he answered every one of my questions... and then some! Now I still take private lessons; but I come home and practice with Shawn. My instructor is amazed how fast I'm progressing now. He keeps asking me what I'm doing... I'm not giving him my ace in the hole."

"This is a wonderful series from a truly talented dance professional. Instruction is incredible, quality and content of the DVDs are outstanding. If you have a passion to learn Cha-Cha, Salsa or Swing, for example, Mr. Trautman and his series is where you need to turn. I wholeheartedly endorse these instructional tapes. You will enjoy/have fun learning these incredible lessons. Customer service -outstanding!"

they understand how to teach

"I really enjoyed this DVD by Shawn and Joanna. I was new to Salsa and the steps are demonstrated slowly. Then the man's steps and the woman's steps are broken down and explained. I really appreciated the fact that they tried to demonstrate the various steps slowly. One aspect that is often lost in dance DVDs is that moves are explained too quickly. Unfortunately if one cannot do something slow, one cannot do it fast. In tennis, if one cannot hit forehands slow consistently, one will not be able to hit the ball fast consistently. The Salsa DVD explains dance moves in the slower fashion. Only later are the dances done in real time to illustrate what they would look like on the dance floor. I have enjoyed a number of their DVDs because I believe they understand how to teach. Thanks."

Very well made with easy to follow instructions

"After taking a Salsa class recently, I felt the class did not cover enough moves for me to show at the dance floor. So I decided to get this DVD and I am glad I did. It had enough moves for me to show on the dance floor and they were very well explained and demonstated. Being able to quickly rewind and watch the moves over was a plus."

Now We Aren't Afraid to get on the Dance Floor!!

"My husband and I have been in love with big band music for years. When we find a group that is playing locally, we are there. we enjoy the night out to watch the dancers and the music. We never knew where to begin with the dancing so we enviously watched. Too afraid to make fools of ourselves on the dance floor. Dance lessons at some of the facilities near us were out of our price range. I am so fortunate that I found this collection. I ordered the Swing Dance Volume I and II set. We had so much fun learning comfortably in our own home (and privacy) and it wasn't long before we got up and out on to the dance floor ourselves. AND, we noticed we were NOT the least experienced dancers out there. The fun we have had since being able to listen to the music as well as dance is amazing. and all of it so affordable. The instruction is so simple and easy to follow. We were amazed. We loved it so much we gave Volume I as a gift to our best friends. I can't wait to learn more. I highly recommend Shawn Trautman dance lessons to anyone considering learning to dance. We went from no skill at all to feeling comfortable and having so much fun with it. Shawn and Joanna's step-by-step demonstrations make it fun, easy and so not intimidating. Just do it!!! It's fun!"

2 Thumbs Up!

"I purchased the Complete Volume Set of Shawn Trautman's Swing Dance Collection and it was a solid investment. He breaks down steps very nicely with a great attention to detail and ease of instruction. I love the "laid back" style, yet professionalism to show that ANYONE can dance and enjoy the benefits of social dancing. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to invest in solid teaching in a nonthreatening, non-intimidating, yet, fun manner. You can use his as a technical tool to enhance dance training or independently to learn new steps. I've been teaching for years and am always looking for different DVDs and teaching materials to enhance my library. I will be purchasing some other of his videos (Slow Dancing, West Coast Swing and others) to continue my training. Great job Shawn and Joanna! Keep up the good work!"

Is an Elegant and Romantic Waltz - Fun?

Yea! Thanks to the Trautmans we can now add another dance step to our growing collection as we climb up the beginning dancers' learning curve. Waltz 101 is our fifth Trautman Dvd and it is every bit as good as the other four we've used.

I especially like the organization of instruction(intro/rhythm-timing/connection-style/lead-follow/review)that they have employed across all their 101 Dvd's. It makes for a very clear and easy progression to learn the dance step, and it has proven very useful for easy returns to specific sections of the dvd for repeated study.

Their combined instructional comments are extremely helpful for both partners and are well balanced for both the leader and follower. I enjoy the tasteful decor of their dance studio, the excellent video quality, the nice balance of music audio with their voice instruction, and the excellent camera tracking of their moves with respect to what is being taught at the moment. View it on a large screen tv and you will almost feel like you are right there with them.

The only criticism I can offer is that the Waltz 101 Dvd may not seem as much "fun" as their Swing 101 Dvd that we are concurrently studying. But, I think that just comes with the differences in the rhythms and tempos of the two dances. In contrast, if you are more in the mood to learn how to flow gracefully and elegantly to a dreamy, romantic waltz, rather than to learn the fast footwork and turns of the Swing - then the Trautman's Waltz 101 Dvd will definitely fill the bill. They do their typical great job of teaching all the basics "plus" some extra challenges to get beginners confidently out on the dance floor to have both a "fun and romantic" time dancing.

I learned to waltz!

Shawn & Joanna Trautman's Waltz 101 dance lesson video is perfect for beginners and also for anyone who just wants a review of these dance steps. I especially like the way these instructors actually show you and your partner in close-up view exactly where to position your feet and hands during each step of the waltz. I realized while taking this lesson how important these tips are for the overall gracefulness that you see when you watch people do this dance. The way this waltz lesson is presented makes you feel very confident during the learning process. I truly appreciate this encouragement as a beginner!
