Now We're Not Afraid of Getting on the Dance Floor!

"My husband and I have been in love with big band music for years. When we find a group that is playing locally, we are there. we enjoy the night out to watch the dancers and the music. We never knew where to begin with the dancing so we enviously watched. Too afraid to make fools of ourselves on the dance floor. Dance lessons at some of the facilities near us were out of our price range. I am so fortunate that I found this collection. I ordered the Swing Dance Volume I and II set. We had so much fun learning comfortably in our own home (and privacy) and it wasn't long before we got up and out on to the dance floor ourselves. AND, we noticed we were NOT the least experienced dancers out there. The fun we have had since being able to listen to the music as well as dance is amazing. and all of it so affordable. The instruction is so simple and easy to follow. We were amazed. We loved it so much we gave Volume I as a gift to our best friends. I can't wait to learn more. I highly recommend Shawn Trautman dance lessons to anyone considering learning to dance. We went from no skill at all to feeling comfortable and having so much fun with it!"

Excellent Swing Instruction

"This group of Swing videos is well worth the purchase price many times over! I never knew how to dance until I started going to a country dance venue about 4 months ago and began attending $7/2 hour events once a week. I was able to learn the primitive basics, but found myself getting left behind when all the fun moves were being taught, so I purchased the Shawn Trautman Swing Starter Pack. The first video will get you enough basics and simple moves to hold your own in any club. The material is very in depth, and easy to understand step by step. By the time you make it through the second video you'll be one of the people that 9 out of 10 folks in the crowd wish they could dance like. The way the moves are laid out and build upon each other make child's play out of dance maneuvers that I never imagined myself being able to do. The third and final disc is just as good as the second as it throws even more moves at you along with combinations that will have you throwing around your partner from the beginning to end of each song with ease. In the 2-3 weeks that I've been going over these videos I honestly think it would have taken me over a year to even learn half the material without a private instructor. Keeping this review honest, the only bad thing I could say about these swing dance videos would be that on a hi-def tv the picture quality loses a bit of clarity when the cameras change to the close-up view. However, I still rate this set with 5 stars because the quality of the instruction and the way it was presented is what really matters, and I couldn't have asked for better."

"The instructions are wonderful and the tips are great. And you have enough time to practice the steps while they're still on screen showing you. (short but sweet)."

Very Impressed!

"My wife and I are in the process of taking East Coast Swing dance lessons. Being a novice I was overwelmed! I purchased the Swing Dancing for Beginners (both volumes) to supplement our dance lessons. To my delight Shawn teaches exactly what my dance instructor is teaching us. I wish I had found these DVDs before signing up for dance lessons. These swing dance videos are the same as taking professional dance lessons. We also purchased the intermediate volume and have completed it as well. I highly recommend these DVDs to anyone who wants to learn the East Coast Swing quickly, correctly and know you are getting quality instruction."

You Can Swing Dance to any kind of Music!!

"At the age of 28 I had never been taught any form of dance. At social gatherings whether it be a school dance, wedding/anniversary, country music bar, military ball, or even an underground punk rock show, I was always on the sideline watching other people have fun and never knowing that the one form of dance could have me completely covered every occasion until I got this video. By the time I finished the Swing Dancing Volume 1 video I had learned enough to go out and dance at virtually any venue from mild to wild. The video begins with teaching you not only the basic steps, but also how to use the steps to any variety of music styles and speeds in a way that's simple to understand, even if you happen to be one of those people who has a problem staying with the beat of music. In addition to the in depth step by step instruction, throughout the video Shawn adds many helpful hints along the way to help guys with the lead like keeping your partner's mind occupied by doing the left, right, and underarm turns he demonstrates. Joanna also chimes in with helpful tips for the ladies from the followers perspective and makes sure that the followers have just as in depth step by step demonstration as the leaders receive from Shawn. The only flaw this video had was that when the camera zoomed in on some parts of the instruction it used a digital zoom which causes a bit of clarity loss, but it does not the degrade the excellent quality of the lessons taught (which is what really matters), so I still give this video a 5 Star rating. I'd recommend at least getting the Beginners Volume 2 Swing as well because you'll learn all the basics in this video fairly quick and want to start trying the more fancy turns, spins, wraps, and other moves to come in Volume 2."
