"I started dancing about 6 months ago. I was really excited about the dance. It is fun and energetic! Well, I had to move and could no longer take the local swing classes I was attending. So, I bought this tape. Just comparing them to the professional swing dancers at a swing camp I went to in California, their knowledge was minimal and sloppy. Overall, I was disappointed with the video. I did though find videos later that the professional at that camps made. They were wonderful. Overall, if your looking for a tape that teaches you a style that is good for dancing to very RETRO music and you are NOT expecting to make swing dancing a long-term hobby, I recommend this video. But, if you want to dance to the good ole big band music and lindy like they did in the 40's, I recommend a different video than this."
The instruction is worth the $$$

"I have had the video a couple of days and have practiced an hour a day. My husband came home from a weekend trip and coulnd't believe how fast I'd picked up the steps. He said I needed to slow down so I wouldn't be frustrated dancing with him! The dvd has a cool dance session at the end, the things that these people are doing are NOT taught on the dvd, but are really neat to watch."

"You can take lessons in just about any dance form nowadays except swing, so you can imagine my delight when I discovered this DVD which will turn you into a pro in a matter of hours. What's best is they carefully show both the man's and the woman's parts because contrary to what most people would have us believe nowadays--in dance, at least, there STILL is a difference.
A lot in one DVD

"I liked the that this showed both beginner and more advanced swing. I felt it was good on teaching steps, but not much at all on technique. You could learn the technique by watching over and over(like where should your arms be-how do you place your feet, where should you be looking)but if you had a problem doing a step, you weren't shown how exactly to do the steps. Overall it was a good DVD on swing and you got your money's worth on learning steps."
