First, virtually no attention is given to the lead-follow dynamics. Having a good connection is critical, especially if you want to improvise, smoothen out errors, or lead a partner through an unfamiliar move.
Second, several of the moves on this DVD are literally impossible to lead. The moves themselves are not difficult; however, one must have them memorized ahead of time, which is antithetical to the social swing dance scene. In other words, they're fine if you only plan on doing these moves with partners who have also memorized them, but these moves are decidedly unhelpful in more social situations.
And third... frankly, even these moves are fairly uninteresting. They might be fine for a choreographed performance, but in a social setting, experienced swing dancers would probably look askance at such moves.
So in brief, it was a laudable attempt, but I don't think that the results were very good.
I kept waiting as one trivial pattern after another was introduced and demonstrated over and over again--when would the intermediate and advance patterns be presented? The answer turned out to be "there are none."
