Editorial Reviews

Partner Dancing Vol. 1 & 2 WILEY HICKS a 3-time national country dance champion with a Masters Degree in Performing Arts and 25 years as a professional instructor / choreographer shows you the real moves and the style and grace necessary for great country partner dancing. His partner TRESA is the perfect compliment. She's hot fun and a fabulous dancer / instructor. In this DVD you will easily learn the basic correct steps for each of the dances shown. You will also get valuable tips on looking great and going beyond just "survival" on the country dance floor although this disc can also be a crash course on "looking good." Learn the right way with Wiley and Tresa. You will be amazed how easy and fun the dances become. You too can be a part of the hottest craze in America. If you're already a country dancer the style and technical instruction will be invaluable.Runtime: 100 minutes Partner Dancing The Country Way Track Listing:1. Diamond2. I Do3. DOA4.

We're new to dancing instruction. After sitting out most dances over the years, we recently decided to take lessons, mainly ballroom but also a few country sessions. We've rented and bought a bunch of dance instruction videos, most of which were laughable - enough so, that we've now started previewing them on Netflix before bothering to buy them. That was the case with Wiley Hicks' "Partner Dancing" DVD. We tried it on Netflix, loved it, and bought it from Amazon. It is the best country dance video we've seen and right up there with the best ballroom videos. Hicks is an excellent instructor. Easy to understand, easy to follow. We've learned more from his video than from our professional live courses. Give it a try!

Pro: if learning dance steps from Mr Macho-Texas-Tough-Guy is your idea of a good time, then you're gonna love this dvd.

Cons: the description says "...shows you the real moves and the style and grace necessary for great country partner dancing..." and "You will also get valuable tips on looking great and going beyond just "survival" on the country dance floor...". Based on this I was expecting more than just a cursory presentation of basic dance steps. But that's really all you're going to get from this, and he doesn't do a particularly good job even at that.

Example of how Wiley will teach you to lead: "...it ain't nothin' but makin' a decision." This is a direct quote from Waltz lesson. He comes across as rough-n-tough and I get the impression that's probably how he leads.

Maybe country women are different and they like this stuff, but on ballroom dance floors this is not the path to winning friends and influencing people.

Note that this is heavily oriented towards country dancing, as it says in the description. The Waltz done in this dvd is some country style I've never seen done anywhere, the "basic" step is done straight forward rather than a stand box. I've been to country dance clubs and they've always done somewhat modified ballroom steps, but this isn't even close to American standard ballroom dance. So be aware of that going in.

I have at least 20 different dance instruction dvds, mostly ballroom but also some country line dance. The teaching on this one easily wins the "Worst Instruction" award. I expected it to be country oriented, but this just doesn't deliver on what the description promises it to be, i.e. it's supposed to actually teach you something about partner dancing beyond "...just makin' a decision...

Wiley Hicks and partner do a great job in teaching a variety of steps. The DVD is well organized, and Wiley's easy to follow and gives a number of pointers. We're very pleased with our purchase.
