One of the Best Instructors Ever!
"I just finished learning the entire DVD of dances and variations and I must say throughout Shawn is an excellent instructor giving back and side views of the moves and dances so you don't have to reverse what you're doing but can move naturally with him. Also, unlike what the most negative reviewer said - you certainly do get to dance every dance to at least a 2 minute piece of music, not including the "prelude" before (doing it without music) and build up he does throughout the entire teaching linking recently learnt moves to the building dance. There is also a Full Review section for doing all the dances and moves in a more aerobic style session and the practice for the last dance "Slappin' Leather" is included after that session rather than in the end of it's section (unlike the rest). An excellent instructor and awesome country line dancing with easy and some impressive advanced variations and pieces. 5 stars!"

The VERY Best Dance Instruction Out There!!!
"Shawn Trautman is the best dance instructor yet! A great teacher in addition to dancer. I've tried several line dance instruction videos VHS and DVD's (9 in all from Christy Lane, Diane Horner, Teresa Mason, Wiley Hicks, and Cal Pozo), but I didn't stick with them, because they would move so fast that you'd get lost. I would get tired of starting them over and over just trying to pick up the steps. But Shawn makes it so simple to learn, keeping it at a slower pace for the beginner. He also throws in some variations for more challenge. They're so good, I have added 4 of his DVD's to my collection. But his aren't collecting dust like the others."

Beginner Line Dance Lessons
"My daughter wanted to learn to dance. I looked for live dance lessons locally, but dance lessons weren't provided for her age. I found Shawn's line dance DVD for beginners and bought it. I had done some line dancing over ten years ago while dating, but I had forgotten everything because I got married and stopped dancing. I remember the frustration I had picking up dance steps at the dance hall. It was hard to hear the dance instructors and hard to see the instructors feet (lots of people were blocking my view). In my opinion Shawn's line dance DVD is much better than live dance lessons. He clearly demonstrates basic dance steps for each line dance and provides alternate dance steps to spice it up. It is easy to hear him talk and it is easy to see his feet. The beautiful thing about the DVD format is that I control the pace of the instruction. Shawn's instruction is easy to follow; however, I keep the remote control for the DVD player handy and push the review button if I need to see something over again. I don't feel pressure which makes it fun. Shawn also injects some humor in his instruction which keeps me smiling. I originally bought it for my daughter, but my whole family has gotten involved. I highly recommend Shawn Trautman's Line Dance 101 DVD. You will be able to line dance."

You'll be ready to dance!
"This Line Dance video is just like taking a lesson in a dance studio! I like the way Shawn describes each step, demonstrates it, and then explains how to do it in a way that can be remembered later -- when it's actually time to get on the dance floor. I found it especially helpful to have an opportunity during the video lesson to review the learned steps with music while following Shawn's lead! This relaxed, straightforward approach to learning is fun and the video is a "must have" for anyone who is interested in learning to dance quickly!"

Great for Beginners!
"I bought Dance Lessons 101 and Line Dance 101 on Amazon.com because of their reviews and totally agree. My husband and I could not be happier with our purchase and we will definitely be back for more of the other titles. We love how you break down the steps for beginners and make it simple and non-intimidating. Many thanks Shawn!"

Loved it!
"I truly enjoyed this line dancing DVD. I've gone through several other dance instruction videos and they've all been useless, Christy Lane, Teresa Mason, and Wiley Hicks). I went through this one only once and felt comfortable with the steps and teh dances. Everything is easy to follow and moves at a slow pace. I also liked the way Shawn reviews the material so you don't have to keep going back and forth over each section. Great teaching method on this one!"

Great starting point!
"Shawn - We loved the line dance DVDs we got from you and have had a lot of fun already. You were easier to follow then we expected and we immediately picked the steps up. Thanks for putting your talents on video for those of us who are just starting."

Great product and value!
"Based on some of the other reviews, I was sure Line Dance 101 was right for me. I received exactly what was shown here and I was very pleased with the customer service and shipping time. I followed Shawn's directions carefully and, when I did, the line dance steps [and dances] came together without difficulty. Shawn explains things in terms that I could understand and gave many small pieces that easily went together. Sure, I'm not an expert yet, but I sure feel better about getting out on the dance floor. I'm having fun & have been very pleased with what this product has done for me. If you want a line dance dvd that makes you feel good about yourself and gets you to go out and have fun, I highly recommend Line Dance 101."

We shocked the crowd!
"My girlfriend and I are grandmothers trying to learn by using your how to line dance video. I purchased this DVD and learned the dances in one afternoon, went dancing that evening and shocked the crowd. I immediately went online and ordered the Line Dancing DVD 6-PK. Hope to see you on the dance floor. We live in Las Vegas."

"He makes it fun and easy. I love him! Tried others, but he makes it fun and easy. I am not very good, but he makes me feel good. I actually went out in public and did okay."

You can't go wrong
"My boyfriend and mother learned these dances with me. We all had a great time, some exercise for my mom, and easily learned a few dances to use in the local country club here in Vegas. No more sitting and watcing everyone else have fun out on the dance floor. I really liked how the moves are shown from all different angles and how all the little steps are put together so before you know it you have learned the dance. It's not rushed. So long as you follow Shawn you can't go wrong. I don't have to keep rewinding and pausing just to get a move down."
Shawn's Take
How to Line Dance VideoIf you really want to have fun with a line dancing DVD, Line Dance 101 is the one you can't afford to miss....How to Line Dance Video DVDs
I developed Line Dance 101 after years of testing different material, auditing 100's of classes, and surveying my students. It was cool to see the way it all came together. When I do live Line Dance 101 classes now, the material is presented in pretty much the same order and the only differences relate to the music (as there are many options you can choose when doing it live). Line Dance 101 was designed and developed to be a stand-alone line dance video and that's exactly what it is. If you've never line danced, order and go through Line Dance 101 first! It will save you SO much time, money and frustration.

If you really want to have fun with a line dancing DVD, Line Dance 101 is the one you can't afford to miss. I'm very straightforward, casual, and easy to follow along with. There's no frilly costumes, overdone stereotypes, obnoxious music, cheerleader style teaching (you know what I'm talking about) or fast 'show 'em once' instruction that you'll find on other how to line dance videos (DVDs) - believe me, they're out there!

This line dancing DVD is rated #1 for beginner line dancers for a reason. Start with Line Dance 101 and you'll be set up for success. How to Line Dance Video Lessons
