Review

I think Shawn's dance instruction is great. I have been wanting to learn to two-step for a long time. I do not want to just go out on the dance floor without some practice and instruction, so these DVDs work perfect for me. I practice in the privacy of my own home… Now, I can't wait to hit the dance floor. Thanks Shawn! --Dianne L, St. Louis, MI

The DVD setup makes it easy to go directly to the section you need to practice.

The DVD is easy to follow and focuses on the fundamentals of 2 Step, i.e., foot movement, connection points, and movement.

It can be frustrating buying a dance instruction DVD not knowing if you'll enjoy it, but you should take that chance with Shawn Trautman's DVD series, which are professionally put together in HD, with great camera work, excellent lighting, clear audio, and fabulous speakers. Shawn and Joanna are naturals at communicating with the audience, great chemistry, and both have a great sense of humor. The two-step 101: beginner country dance lesson DVD is very good and very enjoyable.

I've been dancing for years, having learned on my own, but that doesn't mean I learned all of the basic fundamentals. Watching this DVD shows how much I've missed. And if you miss out on the fundamentals, you'll have trouble over time in different areas of your two-step with rhythm, timing, how to lead (men), and how to follow (women), etc.

Guys, when you dance with a girl, but she declines to dance with you again, she won't tell you why, and often times it just may have something to do with how you lead, maybe you were difficult to follow, or maybe your hand placement is wrong (too high or too low) and uncomfortable to her. Fix the basics!

This DVD is great for both men and women. Ladies, instead of waiting for guys to teach you two-step on the dance floor, why not impress him by having an idea what you're doing ahead of time? As fun as it is for some guys to teach new girls how to dance when you meet, it's even more fun when she already knows the basics, so we can move on to other intermediate dance moves w/o fumbling around. Besides, there just isn't enough time to teach someone the basics on a dance floor during a 4 minute song, teaching has to be done out of a nightclub one-on-one, or you can use this DVD.

It's also very difficult if not impossible to master other intermediate/advanced two-step moves w/o getting the basics down. One step at a time, this two-step 101 DVD is truly the first step!

Alright so we were brand new to the 2-Step and decided we would try it and for the money this DVD cost we had no problem in making the decision to go this route. These instructors really break down the steps in a way that is really easy to follow along to. I really liked that they started with just the rhythm of the dance because that is one thing I often have issues with other dances.

Great instructional tool to learn the two step. Highly recommend it. Also try out some of their more advanced moves dvds as we had great success with those as well.

I was expecting a lot more of the lessons. I could have gotten this lesson on UTube. Way overpriced, so disappointed, looking forward to some dance lessons beside going backwards.......

The DVD is easy to follow and focuses on the fundamentals of 2 Step, i.e., foot movement, connection points, and movement. At the end there is an introduction to something more advanced, turning to change leads and then back again. While the other DVD's in the 2 Step collection are needed to master the 2 Step, I plan on buying those other DVD's based on the quality of the introductory DVD. A discount may be offered after the first purchase. An added bonus is that you can learn in private and for less cost than private lessons.

We don't have a dancing background but we are having fun learning the basic two step, and the other transitions included in the training: the Basket (or Wrap), the Promenade (with side step and vine step), the One and a Half Torque Turn, and Sweet Heart (side by side). Currently planning on purchasing additional training DVD's by Shawn.
