Renowned dance instructor Teresa Mason has created a program that uses a simple, easy-to-follow format.
Learn social dance basic steps and snippets of routines in ballroom, Latin, country/western, wedding, and disco. Instructor Teresa Mason offers practical tips that apply to all social dance: attire, dance etiquette, poise, posture, rhythm, and connection. Then she introduces the basic steps, variations, and styling of 5 different dance styles and 12 different dances within those styles. Elegant, competition dancers in gorgeous costumes present inspiring mini-routines, then demonstrate basic steps--first with leader alone, then leader and partner, and finally to music. There's not much instruction about how to do each step: it's basically watch and imitate. You won't become a fabulous dancer just by following this 80-minute DVD, but you will have a better understanding of social dance, and you'll be more confident about dancing at a wedding or other social occasion--as well as at home with your special partner. --Joan Price

First, there is almost no instruction. At the beginning of each session they will show the male part for about 5 seconds. You just watch the guy dance. He doesn't even do a simple step more than once! He moves right into intermediate moves. Then add the female part for about 5 seconds and I guess they think you'll know how to dance.
Secondly, no considerable amount of time is spent "practicing." This is related to the first point becuase they show you the step and then move on. There's not a single, "let's try that again." They're great dancers, but I don't know what I'm doing.
I wish I could return this awful excuse for "beginner's dance instruction."
Boy, am I glad I did! Although I must have knocked over my Cookie Monster lamp 40 times in the course of practicing my spins and twirls around the living room, I finally became a pretty nice hoofer, although it didn't come without stepping on Mrs. Loman's feet a few times (she forgave me).
Thanks for this DVD, I am now the king of Shady Oaks. The ladies line up for Leonard, and he dances all night (7 pm - 8:30 pm).
