Best Beginner and Intermediate DVD

"I have purchased and viewed several dance CDs focusing on the Waltz, Rumba and Cha Cha. This is the best by far. Most others are focused on flair and professional looking dancers. This tape is produced more for the "common" dancer. It is easy to follow, the music is perfect for the beginner and intermediate and the dance instructors are easy to watch and follow.
Negative: too much filming of a dance party before and after the lessons. It would also be nice for all of these instructional CD to have a "Scene Selection" capability to allow the viewer to stop and return to the lesson of interest.

"This is a DVD edition of popular video instructions. It contains instruction DVD for Waltz, Rumba, Cha cha plus Audio CD for practice. Excellent set!"

"This DVD has helped my wife and I become better dancers. It features the teacher and his partner but then shows very average people of all ages dancing throughout the DVD. Being male, I was a little intimidated by this at first but quickly lost that feeling because of the pace and teaching techniques the instructors use. Good buy! Only drawback is that if you rewind often to watch and practice on your own, you quickly get tired of the music being played."

"I read the other reviews here and was compelled to add my two cents. If this is the best out there in instructional video for ballroom dance, we really need to change that by begging those polished, thoughtful teachers out there to PLEASE create something for the dedicated desperate students seeking decent instruction! Not everyone has access to top teacers in their home town and something has to give.
This dvd was disappointing at best. The skill level and grace of the 'teachers' seemed totally lacking. They seemed to stomp through the mechanical indications of the various steps...but there was no style to be seen. I am not suggesting that an instructional video needs to showcase the narcissistic vanity of some performer teacher; but a nice clean basic technique should be essential.
Common sense also seemed to be lacking in this presentation as well. When there is an able bodied woman right there, why does the the male teacher need to demonstrate her part???? I found this frustrating to watch.
Overall: don't waste your money on this one.
The cd included with the dvd also falls short of the satisfactory mark. It is outdated and reminds me of elevator music."
