Movie Reviews

A Teacher Reviews Margot's Video
Dave Wissel | USA | 12/02/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Margot Scholz is truely one of the great ballroom teachers. Everybody should take a lesson with Margot just to see how expertly she spots problems and how fast she can fix them. Anybody who takes a lesson with Margot is in for a real treat...and now you can have her on video.

If you're a beginner just starting out, this DVD is a great tool. Even if you're not a beginner, the way Margot explains this material can fill in some gaps your beginner teacher perhaps forgot to mention. It covers a lot of begninner material but don't let this fool you that it is not good. Margot precisely mentions EXACTLY what you are to do. In contrast a lot of other videos of teachers leave the student guessing as nothing is explained well...or the footwork is sloppy.

One of the mistakes of beginners is not getting the right foundation before moving on to the more complicated material. If you were dancing solo, this would be tolerable....but ballroom/latin dancing takes two people and if you're not grounded in the basics, its a real problem of "the blind leading the blind". So its best to go slowly and pick up the basics to as much completion as possible. In this manner this video will help. You can rewind and fast forward and you'll find the material expertly and preceisely presented.

Happy dancing!!"

"A real no-brainer using Margot's examples. I learned the Cha-Cha in 10 minutes flat using this DVD, and the other dance steps are just as easy to learn. I wish Ms. Scholz would produce an intermediate and advanced series!"
Like it . . .Should sometimes teach from the female perspect

"This video really breaks down the steps and the instructor is very talented and graceful. The problem is: she teaches the male steps and tells the female do just do the reverse which is not as easy as it may seem. Plus, it looks like someone shot it with a handheld camera."

"The video was just what I was looking for for my granddaughter.

The only problem was the rhumba. It was shown differently than how I was taught and I prefer the way I was taught when I took lessons at Arthur Murray Studios.

When she learns these dances, I will get her the next edition."
