Editorial Reviews

One cue that this video isn't like ordinary instructional dance videos is the fact that the instructor, Riverdance-featured dancer Colin Dunne, appears, not in a small dance studio, but on a real stage, around which are gathered real, expectant audience members. As it turns out, this video works best as a performance, not as a how-to guide. Dunne, handsome and animated, with flourishes to spare, is a lot of fun to watch--but only experienced dancers are likely to find this video truly instructional. Dunne's method is to slowly walk through each set of steps just once, and then the music revs up and the feet, as the saying goes, start flying (Dunne is accompanied by his accomplished Celtic Feet dancers). True beginners will be bewildered, although frequent use of the remote to rewind can help. And it is pretty dazzling to watch Dunne and his dancers when they really let loose--the compelling combination of still upper body and wildly flying legs and feet is irresistible. But those who really want to learn the steps themselves might also want to check out Seamus Kerrigan's Irish Dancing Made Easy. --Anne Hurley

From the Back Cover

Irish dance is the smash hit phenomenon of the nineties. Rooted in ancient Celtic tradition, its infectious rhythm and electrifying choreography have thrust it into the limelight as one of the today's hottest sensations. Now, you too can enjoy the excitement and the spirit of this spectacular, yet easy-to-learn dance. Colin Dunne, nine- time world dance champion and star of Riverdance, fills the screen with his warmth and charm, explaining clearly and concisely how to dance just like him. You'll learn firsthand why The Irish Post calls Colin "the greatest male Irish dancer of all time." Together with members of the Celtic Feet Dance Company, Colin performs superb routines that you too can dance once you've mastered the basics. Then again, you can sit back and enjoy this unique dance video filled with the dazzling tradition and special magic of the Emerald Isles.

Customer Reviews

If you truly want to learn Irish dancing, take a class from an instructor in a proper setting.

And I know this is very sophmoric of me, but everytime I think of the fact that it's by Weinerworld Productions...I go off into gales of laughter!

Incidentally, the quality of the video isn't great - the lighting is poor and it seems more like a home video than a professional recording.

i have tried this video before and i have been searching for it on dvd for some time...
it is so much fun and as an instructor, colin changes everything and makes it so easy to enjoy the whole learning thing - celtic soft or hard shoe is not easy - he makes it look so simple.

for anyone thinking of taking this form of dance or who just wants to have fun and move your feet - enjoy this for all that it is worth and believe me it is worth everything.

Most will remember Colin Dunne from Riverdance: NYC. What more can be said about a man that has won 11 All-Ireland and 9 World championships??? (Eat your heart out Michael Flatley!) This man is the most elegant and beautiful Irish dancer recorded thus far. If you'd like to learn from the best, and witness this incredible talent at his peak, buy this video! I would also recommend, of course, Riverdance: NYC, and Dancing On Dangerous Ground, co-starring the always fantastic Jean Butler,

The dances on this video are relatively simple for a beginner and really fun to learn. I use them to work out! You'd be surprised how quickly you get your heartrate up by doing them. Lots of fun!!

For someone who has never danced and wants to learn Irish Dance this is an outstanding video. Each movement of each step is done at a slow pace and then in a group at the regular speed. The only fault with the video itself is that you can not replay the steps over and over. But that aside, the DVD is an inexpensive way to learn basic Irish dance steps.

Format: DVD
I bought this DVD because of all the celtic dancing DVD reviews I read, this one seemed to be the most accessible. If so, then maybe I'm not cut out for celtic dance. The instruction given seems to be aimed at people who already know how to dance. It's brief, done only once, covers 8-9 moves at a time, and when Dunne lets you try it out, the music is at full tempo. This is pretty frustrating and not made more helpful by his frequent use of "this very simple step..." "the most basic move..."

It's a fun DVD, and he's a great dancer. And I'll probably try it again. But if you're looking for an easy 'in' to Celtic Dance, as I was, I'd look somewhere else.

If you want to learn the basics of Irish dance, this is not a good choice. Colin is an extremely gifted dancer and his moves are impressive. However, he flies through the steps far too quickly and you will find yourself hitting rewind over and over and OVER to pick up a step.
If you are already familiar with all the basic steps, this could be a good tape to practice along with and enhance what you've learned elsewhere.
Incidentally, the quality of the video isn't great - the lighting is poor and it seems more like a home video than a professional recording.

Format: VHS Tape
I was looking forward to this video. Knowing nothing of how to Irish Dance (except for my free imitations done watching others), I bought this video thinking I might learn how to do some basic steps. Unfortunately, this is not a good video to learn by. Learning videos need a little bit of a boring quality, that is, watching from one camera angle one full practice step done slowly to rythm. But we never see the beginning steps done simply to rythm by one person; we jump from Mr. Dunne to the right, to the left, full body, just the feet, the others, which makes all of this more confusing. It seems like the director did not know if he was going to teach or entertain. However, if you are already an intermediate to professional Irish dancer already, I recommend this video. Or, if you want to enjoy watching how Irish dance is learned by professional dancers, but have no intention to get out of the sofa and try it, I recommend it.
p.s. - Do you think you could make another video called "Jig for Dummies"? That I would buy

If you've ever bought an instructional video and felt cheated that you paid a lot for very little information, you won't have that complaint with this one. Some of the reviewers of this video complain that it goes too fast, but that's why we have pause buttons on our VCRs! Each 5 minutes of this video will take a beginner one month to master, but each of the steps is done sufficiently slowly to allow it to be diagramed and repeated. You will spend 6 months to one year on this one-hour video if you are serious. I highly recommend it.

I own Celtic Feet. Colin is a very attractive man and a very good dancer. But his instructions are for people who already have experience. He shows you a step slowly, explains it once and then his and his background dancers' feet are a blur of too fast to follow motion. This is not a beginners tape by any means, despite what he says. If you have already studies the dance and are just refreshing yourself, then it is nice. Otherwise, I'd just watch the tape to see what I should look like when after have I already learned.
