So much fun!
“Wow.. we had a blast with this dance lesson. We have a few other videos from the same instructors and this may be our favorite. They really turn on up the pace on this lesson and keep you moving the whole time. It’s not so fast you can’t keep up, but you better be ready for a workout because these people do not slow down to smell the roses. They have a really cool approach with these 101 lessons where they teach you the beat and rhythm stuff and then follow up with how to do the actual dance. Another great video from our favorite instructors, thanks guys!”

easy to follow
“for people with little dance experince i found this dance lesson (along with other shawn trautman lessons)to be easy to follow and understand. instruction was slow enough to not be confused yet not to the point of boredom. i think if anyone tries just one instructional video, they would agree and be hooked on learning multiple dances.”

We’re now lovin’ the Swing. What fun!
This is the 4th Trautman dance lesson we’ve purchased. All of them in the 101 series have proven to be extremely helpful and successful in getting us started with dancing, but this one seems to be especially fun. I’m not sure if it’s Shawn and Joanna’s enthusiastic enjoyment of Swing that’s infectious, or just the upbeat tempo for the dance, but you will definitely find yourselves having a good time learning with this one. Like all the other 101 dvd’s their organization builds from the very basics and ends with some things to challenge you for repeated study.
The claim in the editorial review that it will have you dancing the swing in minutes proved true. We were anxious to try the Swing at a local dance just this past weekend, and we only had an hour available on the afternoon before the dance for our first look together at the lesson. In just a few minutes of Shawn and Joanna’s combined instruction we had the basic step (both single and triple time), rotating the basic, and the ladies underarm turn mastered. Just that simple beginning was enough for us to jump in and enjoy the swing at the dance, and what fun it added! There is still a lot more for us to learn from the dance lesson so we will be watching it again as soon as we can.
The Trautman 101 dance lessons have had us dancing to the Night Club 2 Step, Cha Cha, and the Waltz. Now we can add the Swing to the list. Our thanks go out once again to Shawn and Joanna.”

Awesome Swing Dance Lesson
“I highly recommend this dance lesson for beginners. I’ve tried a variety of other approaches, including lessons and Youtube, to learning different dances and highly recommend this. Video is easy to follow. Good production quality. And makes it fun to learn. Am ordering a bunch of additional dance lessons on Swing and other dances.
Shawn and his wife do a great job with clear instruction. They show 1 step and 3 step options to make it easy for you to dance to any pace. This is way cheaper than lessons. It is also great documentation – if you are like me and may need a quick refresher down the road.”

Very well made
“I am a beginner. I ordered this Swing dance lesson recently after checking the reviews of many dance instruction DVDs and online lessons. I found Swing 101 to be very thorough and well structured so that I could learn at my own pace without rushing. Very well made.”

Perfect for a novice like me.
“Wanted to learn a dance with my ten footed girlfriend. We put it in and instantly felt the ice melt away as we where following Shawn through the dance lesson. He explains everything very well and gives a lot of useful tips throughout. Im glad i picked this up. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to start swing dancing.”
