You’ll dance your way through Starter Steps, Basic Inside Turns, Inside Rolls and more, and that’s just where you start. By the end of this dance lesson course you’ll be dancing along and putting things like Wraps, Unwraps, Outside Turns and more together like a pro. Not only will you get the moves, but you’ll also get several technique and style tips that you won’t find anywhere else as well as a couple of bonus/challenge moves that will give you plenty to practice with as you dance along to some great West Coast Swing dance music all the while.

I am not new to West Coast Swing but I am certainly not an expert. I thoroughly enjoyed the light-hearted (they have FUN teaching) and informative DVD Moves and Patterns Vol. 1, and look forward to the rest of the series. If you have already gone through beginner DVD’s or classes, this it a good next choice. One of my favorite parts was at the beginning where you learn how to start a dance without being arms-distance apart.

Shawn and Joanna Trautman explain the moves completely, and show close-ups of both hands and feet so you get a good snapshot of what you should look like doing the moves. I have also been lucky enough to attend more than one of his live classes, and even dance with Shawn Trautman personally. He is just as patient and fun to dance with in person as he is on the DVD!
