Shawn's Take
Shawn's Exclusive!

First off, I love to go out country dancing! I've taken, given, and been a part of many ballroom, swing, Latin and country dance lessons and I'll tell you country has the most options open for dancing and has the widest variety of folks to do it with. There's never any shortage of partners nor is there a lack of people to share the hobby. It's fairly inexpensive and a great social outlet.

Country has the most options open for dancing and has the widest variety of folks to do it with...

All that said, if you're new to country dancing and you're looking to get started with your lessons, you should absolutely start with Country Dance 101. It's a great overview into country dancing and truly gets you off on the 'right foot' (no pun intended!). The very first thing you go through is a line dance and whether you're interested in line dancing or not, it's a great introduction to rhythm and steps that are going to be the foundation of your dancing as you progress. Believe me, it's much easier learning to do just steps and get your body accustomed to it than it is to learn steps and worry about leading or following right away. Also, it'll build each partner's confidence in themselves before having to work together. I started with line dances and have had great success with thousands of folks over the years going this route. I'm not saying you have to love line dancing or even want to do it, but understanding it and learning a little about it first will help your dancing tremendously.

As for the other 5 DVDs - I'd recommend doing the Couples Line Dancing 101 DVD next as it gives you a number of 'set routines' to do with a partner or that you can learn so you can do them with anyone. It exposes you to them and allows your mind and body to start piecing the dances together as you'll get accustomed to doing the motions and working on your style. A lot of guys like this one because they don't have to worry so much about the lead & follow elements. After that, you can get deep in to the basics of the Two-Step with our brand new Two-Step 101. Then get your Swing on and learn the basics of Swing with the soon-to-be best rated instruction on the market in Swing Dancing 101.

Last are both Double Two-Step 101 and West Coast Swing 101. These are a little bit tougher, but they're not "hard" (this may not make sense to you yet, but it will). These dances will give you a good challenge, but you probably shouldn't start with them.

Overall, there's a ton of material in this pack. If you're new to country dancing, the Country Dance Starter Pack will give you hours of endless fun and help you look good quickly. As always, if you have any questions once you've gone through it, please feel free to call me at our studio and I'll be glad to help!

It kept me entertained and interested.

"What drew me to buy Swing Dancing 101 were a few things. First, the website is very user friendly and full of info. So it was easy to make a choice. I am a true beginner at dancing, and this dvd helped me A LOT. There is plenty of detailed information about every little thing, starting with rhythm & timing. I was really struggling with that before (sigh), but now it makes sense to me! It's a well made video with good picture quality, which is important to me. Another thing I liked is that you can tell the pair dancing are having fun and enjoying doing these lessons. It kept me entertained and interested. So it is easy to watch and stay focused. I am looking forward to watching it again, probably a few more times, to soak up all the fine points. I look forward to getting out on the town with these skills."

I will be ordering more lessons!

"At 50 years old I wanted to learn how to country dance. Shawn Trautman & his wife Joanna are teaching me to do just that. Country Dance 101 goes into detail and shows the dances in all positions, for both men and women. I am dancing! Thank you Shawn and Joanna. I will be ordering more lessons..."

The instruction is great..

"I think Shawn's dance instruction is great. I have been wanting to learn to two-step for a long time. I do not want to just go out on the dance floor without some practice and instruction, so these DVD's work perfect for me. I practice in the privacy of my own home.......Now, I can't wait to hit the dance floor. Thanks Shawn"

This is the West Coast Swing Dance video you're looking for!

"Very complete instructions. Easy to follow and understand. Also very happy with the fact that it is an ALL Region DVD, so I'm able to play it on DVD here in New Zealand."

Your New Couples Line Dance 101 is the best!!

"We learned individual line dancing from Party Line Dances, but now we can dance together as a couple! This has added a whole new dimension to our social life in the last 2 weeks. Now it is easy to lead and dance with my wife as a couple without having to think a lot about leading. As promised, this is a dance lesson a guy can really enjoy!! Thanks for a great product and experience,"
