    The pacing is just right and the instructions couldn’t be clearer!

    “Now, I’ve taken a few of line dancing classes in my day, and always missed a step or two because it always seems like instructors rush through the hard parts and dawdle through the easy parts of a dance, so I never learn anything and I keep my two left feet, never gaining a right.

    I had no luck with youtube.com instructors for the same reason–bad pacing. I NEARLY gave up but then I gave this guy a try.

    Amazing. Even a screw-up klutz like me can dance to this stuff. He went through all the moves relentlessly until I could memorize them enough that I was actually practicing by myself and doing it *right*. My only regret is that I didn’t find him until this year. It’s pricey, but it’s worth it to have good instruction for once. I’ll be buying more of his videos in the future, for sure!”

    Excellent Instruction

    “I’m a teacher and I can tell you first-hand that Shawn is an excellent instructor. This was my first Shawn Trautman dance lesson and I’ll tell you it’s worth taking a look at. The way Shawn presents the material is extremely easy to follow and he does a great job of breaking the dances into manageable pieces that build on top of one another. I was surprised at how easy the dances were once they were completed. I look forward to other dance lessons soon.”

    I completely recommend this to anyone

    “I am a beginner learning line dances and I bought this dance lesson to get myself started. The lessons are taught step-by-step and are easy to follow since the instructor shows you a few moves at a time and shows them from different angles. You build on previous moves and before you know it, you’re dancing! I have already applied some of the dances at a local club, and I was so proud that I was able to do them! I completely recommend this to anyone, beginner or not, if you want to learn the dances on this lesson. I never floundered, never got lost and practiced a few times and had it down pat. The instructor really knows how to teach.”

    Very easy to learn

    “I’ve been looking for a way, other than the treadmill, to get some exercise indoors and I remembered what fun and what great exercise line dancing was. A long time ago I used to go to a country line dancing bar and I had so much fun there. I searched the internet for Learn to Line Dance videos and decided to try this one because I knew if I liked it, there were more in the series. I’ve gone through the dance lesson two times now and I feel like I can do the dances to “real” music already. The dances are broken down in a way that make them very easy to learn. You can also get a play list of suggested music on Shawn Trautman’s website to practice the dances with. I do have to admit, I feel a little ridiculous line dancing all by myself in the living room. But who cares, right? Now that I have the play list I’ll just turn the music up loud enough so that I won’t hear the neighbors laughing at me when they drive by and see me through the windows.”

    Each dance FUN! FUN! FUN!

    “I had fun learning to do these dances. The 10 step is my favorite (I know it’s easy, but I have fun doing it often). I enjoyed learning and practicing. I’m even getting my boyfriend into it. Thanks”
