Shawn Trautman’s Dance Lessons are for people who…

…believe in themselves enough to act on their curiosity! What will you look like when you take to the dance floor after a couple of weeks worth of practice? What will your friends think when you get out there and dance the swing with a complete stranger and totally rock the floor? How shocked will your family be when you and your spouse rush to the dance floor and command their attention because of how much fun you’re having? How much fun would that be if it happened every time you were out and not just once?

Are you curious? Do you want to know how amazing it feels to finish a full night of dancing, flushed, a little foot sore, but still vibrating with the energy of a dance floor filled with people enjoying themselves? Are you ready to experience the thrill of stepping on and off the dance floor with confidence because you know what you’re doing? Do you want to know what it feels like to be noticed, in a good way, by all the people around you? The more you get in and use Shawn Trautman’s Online+, the quicker the benefits of dancing kick in!

Great Dance Videos!

“I’ve walked out of 2 different line dance classes in the last month because I couldn’t follow the instructor. I chose these dance video lessons based on the reviews on Amazon and I’m pleased to report that my inability to learn was based on the instruction and not my inability to dance. I truly enjoyed these lessons and was able to keep up with everything they taught. I’m not one to write reviews, but I had to take a moment to say thanks for a wonderful product!”

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 Swing Dancing for Beginners Volume I on DVD 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!”

One of the very best things I ever did!

“I purchased the 2-Step basics videos Vol. 1, 2, and 3 and it is one of the very best things I ever did! I liked the single focus and how in depth it got. After using these instructional videos for a couple of weeks, I went out and danced the 2-Step very well. Many of the women I danced with thought I was an experienced dancer. When I told them this was my first time, they could not believe it!! I have been a classroom teacher for forty years and I know the value of learning something right the first time! If you want to learn the 2-Step the right way, Shawn’s videos are the way too go!!”

It kept me entertained and interested.

“What drew me to try Shawn Trautman’s dance lessons 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 these lessons 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.”
