Video Previews
Here you will find segments from some of our ballroom dance DVDs. To speed download time and minimize file size, these videos are highly compressed and thus their quality is reduced. The videos you will receive are "broadcast quality," with stereo CD-quality sound. In fact, our videos are taped with high-definition television (HDTV) resolution.
Note: You'll need either the free Quicktime plug-in or free Windows Media Player to watch these movies in your browser. Please visit our Video Help page to download either player or for other help pertaining to downloading videos from our website.

Product Strengths
•Leadable Patterns
Our ballroom dance videos (DVDs) specialize in leadable patterns—patterns that "real people" can use in "real" social settings.



•Lots of Material
Our dance videos (DVDs), which are generally more than one hour in length, provide enough material to keep you busy for a long time. Unless otherwise noted, all videos show more than 30 patterns.

•Easy to Learn
The beginner dance videos (DVDs) use a "follow the leader" approach where you stand in front of your television and copy what the instructor does. We try to make learning partner dances as easy as learning line dances. Our goal is to allow you to learn at the same speed that the tape or DVD plays—to minimize rewinding and pausing. We don't want you to have to stop the video to "figure out" what's being done. We think you will find these videos easier to follow than a typical aerobics class.

That isn't swing. It is lindy hop.

Swing dancers don't like lindy hoppers.
They have heavy feet and it is ugly when they try swing

Lindy hop is derived from east coast swing.
Go with east coast swing.

LOVE it!

I love how fast it is. How their moves coincide with each other; almost form fitting.

...and I guess it helps that I dig the music too. :]

This is the studio I learned at. That is Christine (former owner) and Mark doing a waltz.
Christine taught Tosha alot. Christine is a championship dancer. I remember this dance.

Absolutely beautiful.

Ive been wanting to take a dance class for a while now. I think I may take a swing class...

Good first song.


The major difference I see is the foot work. This one is more fluid. Almost effortless.

Yeah. West coast is also the more relaxed version.

It allows more experimentation which makes it easier to learn and IMO more fun.

East coast is the traditional version and much more strict.
