The Ultimate Emergency Dance Lessons DVD brings professional dance instruction into the home, totally de-mystifying it and inspiring confidence.
Each dance is separated into a show section where professional couples perform the dance in formal costume and a teaching section where, in everyday clothes, they then break the dance down into sections of easy-to-follow steps.
This video contains over an hour and half of footage and includes the following favorites of dancing:
# Modern Waltz
# Rock and Roll
# Viennese Waltz
# This video also features a bonus dance, the Merengue
Dance Styles: Foxtrot, Modern Waltz, Rock & Roll, Disco, Salsa, Viennese Waltz, Chachacha, Tango & in the bonus section: Merengue. Each lesson is about 10 minutes long.
Lesson content: Everything is set on a dance floor w/good lighting. You watch an advanced look of a style of dance for about 2 minutes by a couple which is done very well to great music. Next they show the dancers starting the tutorial with usually the man facing your or the side profiles of the dancers. They then have the dancers do a few steps in 1/2 speed (sometimes slow-mo but usually the dancers will move that slow) while a male voice over (informative/very helpful, very stiff/professional sound, but a little passion to keep you from snoring) points out general guidelines about how to move. They then do those few steps in normal speed w/music. Then on to the next set of moves. And on on & ends with them dancing all the moves they taught w/music. If there are any turns, they will show it, but again only in 1/2 time with only major points told. There are some zoomed in angles, but mostly it's a wide angle back camera to see both dancers at once at all times. There are no only man or only woman angles or any practice time. Only a quick explanation which can be said while a dancer dances 1/2 speed. Depending on how advanced the dance is done when first shown, the moves you taught are able to be done w/o athleticism needed but still advanced enough to impress others.
This was well done overall, I wasn't bored (WONDERFUL DANCERS), I did learn a lot in terms of understanding some of the major points, but I still think a more practice type would help encourage you to practice rather then just watching. I know that can trap a program into being boring like almost all dance lesson videos, but if it's done with a sense of silly fun instead of dry, stiff boring speech, I think it would be a hit. Since there is no practice, you will need to replay this dvd many times.
