"This is a collection of very old videos thrown together on a DVD.
I had two of the videos. That is really bad. Also, the dances were not listed with each decade. I question where they got the dances. There were so many popular ones I wanted to learn that were missing. Not recommended."
Three generations of dancers

"Three generations of my family recommend this DVD. If any DVD can teach dance successfully without personal coaching, this one can! 1.The music is great. 2. The teaching is easily understood. 3.The teachers are experts in their field. 4. It's a bargain! 5. It's huge! It will take years of free time to learn all the dances on this set. Drawbacks: One of the instructors is a bit tense teaching to a camera but his moves and verbal instructions are outstanding. Some of the outfits are now dated, but that is unavoidable. Overall, it's well done! If you can't afford individualized lessons, this DVD is the answer!"
A great value

"It might depend on what you need, but this is a great set for beginners, or those looking to learn new styles or add to their knowledge, which covers a wide spectrum of styles at a low price. Of the 5 DVD's three are two-sided thus closer to 8 DVD's worth of material! You could easily pay the same amount for only one instructional disc.
It does appear to be less expensive because it was taken from various individual VHS tapes - which is an advantage over the VHS format for ease of replaying the varios dance steps, and doesn't cover the latest pop or hip hop dance styles."
Just what I was looking for!

"I bought this DVD set mainly for the dances of the 50s and 60s DVD. I was wanting to learn those dances and it is impossible to find any DVDs that teach you these solo dances - it seems like everything is for partner dancing. Anyway, you'll learn the Alligator, the Swim, the Fly, the Monkey, the Mashed Potato, the Jerk, the Frug, the Shimmy, Watusi to name a few. The dances are broken down step by step and then at the end of a series of dances, you put them together in a "let's dance" segment.
The dances are only demonstrated a few times so be prepared to rewind the DVD.
I'm looking forward now to moving on to the 70s and 80s dances!
This is a lot of fun and a great way to exercise!"
