Now you can perfect your slow dance moves and enjoy exclusive savings with two easy to follow slow dance lessons in our Slow Dancing Starter Pack. Get yours today and start enjoying more romantic moments on the dance floor!
- All-in-one Slow Dancing Lessons

Dancing slow with your partner can be either a warm, carefree pastime that you both enjoy or you could both dread it and hope slow songs are NEVER played again while you're out. If you're tired of sitting the dances out or feeling awkward when you hold your partner and just stand there, you should take note.
This is the Slow Dancing Starter Pack, where dancing slow is the primary focus and the goal is to get you not only looking good on the dance floor, but confident. Sure, you'll learn how to slow dance, but that's not all. You'll learn how to hold your partner, how to move around on the dance floor, how to do left turns, right turns, underarm turns, momentum turns and more.
Slow dancing with your partner allows you to truly "connect" and "dance together" more than just about any other dance. You'll also learn about leading and following and get moves like magic turns, lunges, pivots, and dips as you work you're dancing slow throughout the lessons.
Included in the Slow Dancing Starter Pack are two of Shawn Trautman's most ideal lessons for beginners: Slow Dancing for Beginners Volume 1 and Slow Dancing for Beginners Volume 2. Get them both together and you'll be dancing slow with confidence in a very short period of time.
Dancing Slow has never been easier than this 2 DVD set. Here's what's included:
- Slow Dancing for Beginners Volume 1
- Slow Dancing for Beginners Volume 2
I just finished writing Slow Dancing for Beginners Volume 1 a moment ago and this mostly applies to the Slow Dance Starter Pack so I'll repeat myself with a few additions along the way.
Slow dancing is largely misunderstood. When I think of slow dancing I think of all the times over the years that I've heard "now that's the way to dance with a woman!" It's not the old "stand and sway" and it's not some raunchy class-less dance that gets lots of attention on the dance floor, but in a bad way. What I teach is a very traditional 'hold me close but don't just stand there and make me feel awkward' dance.
I learned to slow dance in high school. It wasn't from a ballroom or any of the dance instructors that were so-called 'experts'. I first learned by watching my parents and my grandparents slow dance. I never felt awkward watching them; rather it was a 'hey, that looks easy and fun' and something I could do with anyone. When I asked about slow dancing at my ballroom dance lessons, the answer was something like 'sure, here's what it looks like' and they proceeded to show me some big glamorous dance with choreographed steps and big flailing arms. My answer to that was 'thanks, but no thanks'. That's not what normal people do, nor is it something you can do with someone you just met (that was important for me when I was single). If you're looking for that kind of slow dancing, I'd say there are probably a dozen or so other videos on the market that you could get - I have about 10 of them and I just shook my head upon watching as it's just not something I'd recommend to anyone (it reminded me of the lessons I took in a ballroom - just not practical and sure as heck not something I'd do in a club or at a wedding).
It's a series based on real-life application...
In 2003, Joanna and I put together an entire curriculum on slow dancing and spent about 6 months developing it. We put it together specifically for folks that were getting married and their bridal parties and we had a blast with our classes. We taught the slow dancing basics in a way that both the guys and the ladies looked good and felt comfortable. Since that time, we've further developed it and refined our teaching methods and all of it is captured here on Slow Dancing for Beginners Volume 1. In the last 2 years since we released the slow dancing series, we've received tons of letters from folks around the world that have thanked us for finally teaching them something practical they can do without feeling embarrassed.
In the Slow Dancing Starter Pack, it's not just the basics of Slow Dancing that you get. It's an entire lesson plan with many different moves to pick from that you can "pull out" at any time. It provides a great foundation for the guys as it shows them tons of options on what to do, how to do it, and how to mix it up and for the ladies it provides them with a great foundation of how to follow and what to expect from a leader. Everything from how to move together as a couple based on the lead to doing underarm turns and even dips and lunges is shown. It's not an ordinary series on slow dancing and how to romantically sweep someone off their feet. It's a series based on real-life application that I guarantee you'll be excited about the very first time you get to try it at an event where others are watching.
If you're looking for a great dance to get started with that you can use with anyone (or just that special someone), the Slow Dancing Starter Pack is the set you should pick up. Believe me, you'll get more than you expect out of it.

We had a great time learning to Slow Dance!
"When my wife told me that we were taking Slow Dance lessons, I was a bit apprehensive. I've never really been that comfortable on the dance floor. However, my concerns started to go away when she showed me that we would be learning and practicing in the privacy of our home with the Shawn Trautman Slow Dancing for Beginners DVD Collection. We listened to the DVD lessons a few times. It is great that when she or I had questions, we could simply stop, rewind and practice at our own pace. Shawn Trautman explains slow dance steps and moves in an easy-to-understand, confident manner.
We actually ventured out to a public event last weekend -- a somewhat formal charity event. To everyone's surprise (especially my own), both my wife and I were awesome on the dance floor! Unlike the old days, where I would slink into the corner when the music started, I confidently asked my wife to dance all night long. Both of us even found ourselves asking others to dance -- and offered them little tips along the way (forgive us Shawn for borrowing some of those!). We are both actually looking forward to going to more events where we can "show our stuff" on the dance floor. For these reasons, I whole-heartedly recommend the Shawn Trautman Slow Dancing for Beginners and rate it Five Stars!"

The breakdown of the steps is what I like the most!
"Always wished I could dance, never took the time to learn... missed a lot! Wish I'd started earlier, appreicate the quality and breakdown of your instruction. Was enjoying a dance class at our local college, but conflicted with my work schedule, and unlike your dvds I could not always say wait I need to see that again. I do wish you were local, you have an obvious love of dance, and it would be great to take a class from the two of you. Thanks. PS - The breakdown of the steps is what I liked most. Bought both the Slow Dancing for Beginners DVD and Dance Lessons 101."
