    It’s About Time I Really Learned How To Dance!!!
    Ten and twenty years ago, my wife and I took a few months of weekly dancing lessons for around $600 each. After each lesson, I couldn’t remember much of what we had learned in the previous lesson and my wife and I would disagree with our steps. Because each of the dance companies were preparing us to dance competitively, although we were there to learn to dance socially, my back was always hurting after each lesson from trying to conform my body to these exact positioning. My wife and I learned very little, and thus when we went out dancing we rarely used anything from our dance lessons but just danced like everyone else did, so we could have fun. When we saw others dancing ballroom style, they always danced the same basic moves counter-clockwise around the dance floor (i.e., forward, left turns, and lady turns), regardless of which dance they were performing.
    After 33 years of marriage and dancing in our own styles, I thought I’d try learning ballroom dancing for my wife again but decided to try something different. I bought 6 of Shawn’s dancing DVD’s and took them with us on our vacation, watching one dance lesson each day, taking my time analyzing them and making detailed notes of each move (my wife would watch them after I had studied them, as she could learn faster and remember better than I did). In each lesson, we learned more than several lessons with either of the dance companies I mentioned above. Then my wife and I took our time to slowly work on each dance together. We moved the chairs and table out of the kitchens and set up speakers that were hooked up to my computer to play music, and would dance for an hour each night to different songs. Just for fun, we even tried new moves that Shawn hadn’t taught and probably doesn’t exist. Learning to dance was enjoyable and dancing with my wife turned out to be a wonderful experience – I finally understood the joy of dancing with one I love. After three weeks traveling through the U.S. and dancing almost every day, my wife and I knew how to perform 10 different dances well. We next went on a cruise, where we danced these dances every night and received compliments that we appeared to have been dancing for years.

    Since our cruise, we were unable to dance for a few weeks, so I forgot many of our dance moves. Unlike taking lessons from the dance companies, we didn’t have to pay to relearn the dances – I went back to my notes and went back to Shawn’s lessons and were quickly able to relearn the dances.
    We have since purchased additional dance videos from Shawn and will purchase additional ones in a few months. He takes his time instructing us and gives various angles to his lessons. I’m sure you will see how great he and his wife do from the other reviewers, so there’s no need to cover that here. I just want you to see the benefits of purchasing his DVD’s over taking dance lessons from the dance companies (even if you want to compete, I suggest you learn the dance lessons from him first, as he was a dance teacher at one of those companies long ago according to his statements on his DVD’s and in his book).
    Before you purchase a DVD of his, I recommend you purchase his book, which comes with a DVD of dance videos before purchasing your first DVD.

    Nicely done, – for beginners you’ll learn the basic step of each dance, Shawn & his partner break down the step into its parts in a easy-to-follow format – for advanced beginners, it’s a good refresher DVD.
    I’m a single male with 1 year’s ballroom & Latin lessons under my belt. I use the DVD for practice without a partner before going out to dance.
