Movie Reviews

Ballroom Dancing for Beginners, and Intermediate
Brian West | Blind Bay, B.C. Canada | 04/22/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Video tapes are good source for learning, especially if live instruction is not available.Ms Mason and her partner Randolph are excellent smooth dancers. The problem for those wishing to learn is that the man's steps are shown separately in detail, but not the woman's. Also the man is usually filmed from front or side and not from the back making it difficult to follow. We did learn to dance, and quite well, but only after numerous stops and rewinds. The Webb's tapes are a classier production and much easier to follow but their dancing is not as polished. Except perhaps in their swing series which appears to be more of Webb's style."
Easy to follow, but simple

"There are no frills with this DVD, but Teresa takes a simple, easy to follow approach. This DVD is EXTREMELY WELL INDEXED! Whether you think her approach is best or not, it is so easy to go back and forth between the lessons, since everything is indexed as a separate chapter. Contrast this to DVDs that make you go to the beginning of the Tango chapter, then forward through 12 minutes of dancing... Sometimes I found the DVD too simple and would have liked more depth. Overall, easy to follow, easy to use. ...just gotta work on that music..."
Useful for a beginner

"As a rank beginner in ballroom dancer, I found this DVD to be instructive and clear. The narration is concise and the demonstrations are well done. The instructional level is very basic, but that is ok for someone just starting. This DVD could serve as useful supplement to "real" dancing lessons, and it would make a good review reference for the sometime dancer.
Bad quality

"After watching this DVD disk I found that it was difficult to study man's part. The man on disk dressed on so that the color of his dress and background almost same. You have to pay much attention to separate where his legs are and how he moves. On the other hand, the lady's part has good contrast."
