What is Ballroom Dancing?

Ballroom dancing encompasses the traditional world of couples dance instruction and practice. Dance legends Arthur Murray and Fred Astaire are the champions and shapers of this subculture. “Traditional” is the word that defines ballroom subculture. The music is traditional, the dances are traditional, and the instruction is highly structured and standardized across the country and around the world.

Money also comes to mind in the ballroom culture as private lessons, group lessons, exhibitions, and competitions are very costly. Most private lessons in a dance studio range from about $50/hour up to about $250/hour and the hour is normally either a 50 or 55 minute lesson.


Where should I learn to Ballroom Dance?

If you’re just getting started or you’re about to start ballroom lessons, you have a few options: private lessons, group lessons, ballroom dance videos or trying to pick it up as you go.

Shawn Trautman has taught ballroom lessons in every forum imaginable. From expensive private lessons to the mass confusion of group lessons, Shawn eventually steered into a new and innovative direction. With the help of technology Shawn & his team created a way to bring professional Ballroom Dance Lessons to anyone and everyone for a fraction of what the same lessons would cost with a private instructor. Sure, anyone can point a camera at themselves and attempt to teach you how to dance, but only Shawn’s approach to video lessons can give you everything you need to know in a way that will keep you entertained while easily transforming YOU into an amazing ballroom dancer.
