"Shawn Trautman is the best dance instructor yet! A great teacher in addition to dancer. I've tried several dance instruction 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! His lessons aren't collecting dust like the others."
"Shawn Trautman's video lessons are just like taking dance lessons 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 these lessons are a "must have" for anyone who is interested in learning to dance quickly!"
