This was not the nightclub dancing I had expected
(3 out of 5 stars)
"This video has introductory disco and slow dancing. If one is looking for beginning non-contact disco dancing, you will probably find this video helpful. The second part of the video features contact slow dancing. The instructors Vicki Regan and Ron De Vito are very capable, leading the viewers step by step. However, because there was no prior reviews of this video, I assumed too much and had thought the video would feature something like the disco hustle, a contact dance, and a slow dance such as the nightclub two step a la Buddy Schwimmer. As they say, buyer beware."
What You Wanted to Know About Disco, but Were Afraid to Ask
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This tape was just what I was looking for. Whenever I've gotten on the dance floor, I've always winged it. I knew there were some very simple disco steps, but no one was ever able to show me what they were. This tape clued me in on how to do them instantly. The instructors made the dance routines so easy I picked them up in minutes, (and I was previously rhythmically-challenged). Now I feel like I'm ready to move on to the tough stuff. It's a great tape for beginners and people like me, who should have begun a long time ago!"
I can dance!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"If you cannot dance at all, this video will teach you how to at least hold your own on the dance floor. I had always avoided dancing at all costs. Up until recently, I would only go to bars that didn't have dance floors. I would even make excuses to my girlfriend to get out of dancing when we'd go out. I finally decided to do something about it after a friend made fun of me recently. I've asked family members and friends to teach me how to dance, but nobody was able to teach me the fundamental rule that this video does: All you do is move your feet to the beat, and everything else will follow. I had always tried too hard to move my upper body to the beat. That's not the idea at all!Some of the video was not helpful. Nobody does the forward-and-back type dancing. Some of the side-to-side stuff was not too useful, but the basic 'step left-step right', to the beat, was quite helpful indeed. Get that basic step down and you'll find yourself doing your own variations of it on the dance floor. Skip the double step...you probably won't even find room for that in most clubs. If you can look past the occasional corniness of the video, you can really pick up some useful tips and can learn to dance in minutes!"
Great for Getting you Started
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I was delighted with the tape. It is the only "free-style" dancing instruction tape I've seen. This tape explained the steps very clearly and I think the dancers looked great. You can adapt the steps and arm movements to reflect your style.
Maybe it's too basic for an experienced dancer, but for me, who would rather sit a dance out than to risk being ridiculed, it was exactly what I needed. We don't have NYC style dance clubs so most of the dancing is at weddings or parties."
