to fast and repeat the steps until you pretty much have them. Its fun and good cardio exercise. I do this in my kitchen right now but am
getting up enough confidence to maybe join a class or go public.
So I researched on line and choose this DVD as the best for her to study in better detail at home. \
She has enjoyed and plays the DVD Constantly to study and practice the steps. Shawn's instruction are at a fair pace with many encouragement words and inset videos to show the dance steps in greater detail. She now wants more of his Line Dancing DVDs which I will probable get her. She recommends that any learning student of line dancing would get very good instruction from purchasing and using Line Dancing 101.
Shawn breaks down each dance into VERY simple steps, and shows you two different angles so you can really understand what it should look and feel like. Since they are in their own segments you can rewind and repeat each step until you are completely comfortable-at the end of the "step" lessons they are all tied together and vuala! you're doing an actual dance! (some with some pretty snazzy variations too!) The only thing I would have preferred is if the actual versions of the songs had been used-a very minor setback.
I would not hesitate to purchase another video from his collection when needed-this one has already worked wonders! Buy it-you'll be happy you did!
If you are interested in learning to line dance with a fun informative video, great camera shots, and an experienced instructor, this DVD is definitely for you.
As a total newbie to Line Dancing I was able to learn the first dance in approximately 15 minutes and perform it confidently
The instructions and demonstrations by Shawn couldn't be easier to follow and now thanks to him I'm totally addicted:)
Now as far as the music goes, some folks will be dissapointed that he doesn't actually use the music that one would normally use to dance the dances he teaches. I'm going to make a wild guess and say that it would be very expensive for him to get a license for each of the dances and would make the cost of the DVD go way up. I can live with the music he provides. I do wish that he'd make a point of telling us on each dance what music is usually used for that dance, he did that a time or two, but I don't think with each dance.
I would recommend his DVD's to anyone, I think that anyone could pop this DVD into their player and be dancing before more than an hour was up! He'a a good teacher for sure.
