Get ready for an upcoming event or a hot night at the club as you learn the five most popular Ballroom and Latin dances from Shawn Trautman, world-class dance instructor and author, with Ballroom and Latin Dance Sampler.
Dances included in this DVD are:
- Cha Cha
- Fox Trot
This DVD includes five convenient lesson plans in one easy-to-follow, step-by-step video. The Ballroom and Latin Dance Sampler is packed with instruction in a “what you see is what you dance” format. Designed for beginners who’ve never danced before, Shawn puts a strong focus on lead and follow dancing and the basics so you’ll “get it.”. To further enhance the instruction, Shawn delivers key points on connectionss, proper hand placements, creating leads, transitions and combining moves. Also a full breakdown of footwork for each move from both the leader and follower perspectives is given. Filmed and produced with optimized viewpoints from multiple camera angles, you’ll be impressed at how simple this DVD makes ballroom dancing for you.
“This DVD creates a nice foundation. Shawn teaches the moves clearly and slowly, giving the lead just enough information without confusing him. Although, I would have liked to see more tips for the follow. The pace was also nice, not overwhelming but not boring. The variety of dances made for an interesting and diverse dance DVD.”
“My favorite thing about Shawn Trautman’s DVDs is the instruction provided individually for the leaders and the followers, so that each person learns what they should be doing. The camera angles are great too. This particular DVD has a lot of great variety (salsa, cha-cha, tango, etc).”
“This DVD gives practical instruction to men on how to lead properly. We especially liked the “hustle” segment. We busted out our salsa skills at my high school reunion and really impressed my classmates!”
“Before this DVD I didn’t realize there are so many common elements in different dances. Little things like how to hold your hands and where to place your hands can be used in more than one dance. I had no idea how important those little things could be, or how easy they can be to master. This is a good starting point for any beginner.”
