After a decade of dancing & teaching on the pro circuits, in countless clubs & in several studios, Shawn Trautman decided there had to be a better way. Upon reviewing several of the top dance videos at the time, Shawn recognized a serious gap in the quality of Dance Lesson Videos on the market (poor instruction, wrong views, bad angles, etc.) & thus began his quest to create the most widely used, customer-focused, easy to follow ‘learn to dance’ video collection in existence.
This was not an easy task and one that would prove to be very costly, but beneficial to everyone. Several years of content building, curriculum testing, & benchmarking of other products led to the development of Shawn’s first DVDs. Years later Shawn has now an established brand, ‘Shawn Trautman Instruction’ and has created over 70 dance lesson videos, some of which have been re-created and produced with better music and production value. Shawn has also helped other professional instructors create their own dance lesson videos, including 5 time Teach of the Year Kristin Geil-Ham.
