Product Description

From the first few minutes of this 3+ hour video, Daniel Newsome and Giselle Anguizola will get you dancing! Starting with the Lindy Hop's most basic pattern, the swing out, and adding basic turns and moves, this is the most comprehensive and in-depth beginner Lindy Hop lesson ever! Lead-and-follow technique is explained clearly with exercises focused on making both the lead and follow excellent dancers. 6- and 8-count rhythms round out this overview of beginner Lindy Hop. Techniques and style are shown just as the dancers from the 1930s and 1940s did it. Each section is presented with a clear breakdown of the steps, tips for dancing as a pair, and demonstration to music at the historic Triple Door Theater in Seattle. This DVD lays the foundation to add more moves and improvisations, teaching dancers to become one with the music. From the wild and fast to the smooth and stylish, Dan and Giselle give you enough moves to keep you coming back to this DVD for a long time to come. Not only have they been teaching students worldwide for over a decade, each is known as a leading historian and innovator in the Lindy Hop community. At Motion Lifestyle we believe the best dancer is the one having the most fun, and aim to make our students the best dancers on the floor. There is simply no better way to learn the Lindy Hop!

This is so much better than anything I have come across! I've been swing dancing for 3 years and have numerous DVDs. Some are good, but most stink. This series is awesome! I wished someone had told me this before. I could have saved my money on all the others! I got this and the Volume 3. Mainly, I just wanted a refresher out of this DVD, but it is so much more! There are many moves I figured I'd just get in some advanced class. They break it down good enough and it moves at a good speed. 3.5 hours of killer training for lead or follow! Seriously, just get this and then you'll see what I mean. I plan on buying all the rest of this series! It is even way better than the 3 aerial DVDs, even though they don't do aerials or slides... Why they don't teach slides, I have no idea :-)

If you are new to swing dancing, allow me to instead suggest Amazon's - "Lindy Hop For The Total Beginner" by Daniel Newsome, first. Also get some dance lessons just to make sure it looks smooth and get out there and have a blast!

I agree with Fuller - This is a professionally produced DVD with outstanding instruction. Each dance step is clearly broken down and described in detail. I'm impressed with the exercises which promote proper body mechanics. There is a wealth of informtion in this DVD - I refer to it often. The Lindy Hop is a fun dance and this DVD just makes it all the more fun - presented more clearly than any other Lindy Hop DVD I've seen!

So detailed description of basic moves that you get lost and loose the feel of the dance. I would prefer the couple dancing constantly showing basic steps to more complicated elements of the dance.

Me and my dance partner were total newbs when it came to lindy hop and this dvd gave such a great starting point for us. It was really nice to be able to move at our own pace and see the same things over and over as opposed to a class setting. I was worried I wouldn't get as good instruction from a dvd that I would from class but the teachers explained the moves so well we had enough under our belt after watching to take to the dance floor. Would recommend this to anyone looking to learn lindy.

All good stuff here. Buy it and you'll find things to like. Some of the best stuff you'll ever get from a class - and then some. Good luck!

This video of lindy hop is well done and there's attention to every detail, as in a real lesson. I have learned very well, I'll also buy the second and third dvd.

We have been taking Lindy Hop lessons for 2 months. We just finished watching volume 1. Very impressive. We really like your dance style and teaching style - of course always on the beat, but emphasizing the body position, balance, feel plus how to lead and follow. We are interested in learning lindy hop, but with very good fundamentals to the dance itself. Your video is the best we have seen. We are looking forward to working through and practicing the lessons.
