"I suppose this will teach you the steps but it is defintely not very hip. The format is cheesy, the dancers stiff and old-fashioned. Not the instruction I had in mind for swing dancing at the local clubs. But like I said it show what steps are involved so if you want conservative or know how to take what it shows and liven it up, this would be ok."

"My husband and I teach swing locally and I picked this tape up at the library for move ideas. I was aghast at what I saw. Please do not waste your time learning Cal Poza's style unless you are restricting your dancing to ballroom-style. It's so far removed from what we dance at swing dances that it would be hard for you to integrate it. If you are really interested in learning how to swing dance, check out many of the other tapes available such as Julie Mertz"

"Cal teaches beginning ballroom style swing. He teaches basics of East coast, Lindy, and West coast very well. His presentation well organized and easy to follow. This is the swing style danced at most "ballroom" dance parties.After learing the ballroom style I learned the Savoy/Frankie Manning style Lindy Hop. This is the energetic jumping style danced in most "swing" clubs. This is not what Cal teaches."

"Never buy any DVD by Cal Pozo. I've accidentally bought two, since Cal isn't on the cover and I hadn't noticed that he would be the one doing the instruction. By the way, the cover of the DVD looks like it's a lot more lively than it actually is.
This is extremely stiff, and you will not be impressing anyone with your moves. Honestly, this looked horrible and my entire family was laughing hysterically for the first ten minutes because we could not believe that anything could be so boring, stilted, and lame. After that we fell asleep. Please, save your money."
