"There are many reasons to recommend this product. What I liked best is that during the "practice" portion at the end, the screen did not go blank or have some pop up. The dance instructors still did the moves with you. They still counted it out, but they did so using more of a behind the scenes method.
The instruction is based on the first DVD. If you already know and are comfortable with this type of dance, feel free to jump to the second. They did cover quite a bit in the first DVD that is still used here. A very good job. I enjoyed it quite a bit.
My only drawback is that Shawn is very dry to listen to. Though he is good at dancing and very knowledgable about the subject, he is not excited about it. It reminds me of a lecture hall in college. Other than that, I liked it. I will be purchasing more of their stuff."

"Vol 2 picked up right where Vol 1 left off. Before each lesson, a re-cap of the basic steps was provided and the new steps built upon the foundation that had already been set so we could move to the next level. The instructions were easy to follow and the modeling was beneficial for us to catch on to and keep up with. My husband and I are ready to go out dancing and show everyone our new moves. We could be contestants on Dance Fever (if it was still on the air). Great instructional video!"

"West Coast Swing
My wife and I attended a New Years Eve Dance two years ago and after watching some dancers, we were inspired to learn how to dance. After trying an expensive dance instructor who limited each dance session to one or two moves, we gave up and decided to look at dance DVDs on Amazon.com. After trying numerous DVD instructors, we discovered Shawn Trautman's DVDs had the best instructions and was the easiest to follow. West Coast Swing is a very difficult dance, but Shawn Trautman made it so easy that in very short time, we graduated from beginners to the intermediate dancers. Shawn and his wife, Joanna, are so thorough when giving the best complete explanation of each move. He also allows you to learn and practice each step before moving to the next step, You don't have to continually rewind and play over and over like so many other DVD instructors. Shawn and his wife explain and show in detail how each dance partner is to perform each step. Now, we are continually asked in various dance halls where did we learn how to dance? We wasted money buying many different DVD's by other instructors, which were very difficult to follow. We are now are concentrating on learning other dance DVDs by Shawn Trautman. He makes dancing so easy and it has become our favorite pastime. We feel so grateful that we bought Shawn DVDs and have lots of fun. \Shawn Trautman videos prove to us that he is "The very best West Coast Instructor".
