Swingtastic Dvd – hours of fun! Oct 25, 2014
By D Smith
Having learnt so much from the beginners Dvd this was a must buy. Almost two hours of fantastic music and great swing moves. The instructors once again were very informative and it was all very easy to follow, if anything a little more challenging than the beginners dvd but its not too hard to get to grips with the new moves. The whole thing flows wonderfuly and it really is the complete package. It I cheaper than dance classes and in my opinion a lot more fun from the comfort of your own home. I have an upcoming wedding and I cannot wait to hit the dance floor when the swing tracks I love are played. Great value dvd and I would recommend to all swing lovers out there.

Great Dancing DVD! Oct 25, 2014
By Leonidas Victory
I learned a lot from the swing dancing DVD. I would consider myself a beginner to intermediate in this area, but overall it was a great DVD with easy to follow instruction. I will definitely be going back to watch this DVD when I want to freshen up on my skills.
Learn to Swing Dance! Vol. 2 Review Dec 13, 2014
I recently reviewed DanceCrazy.com’s Swing Dance Volume 1 DVD and am excited to introduce Volume 2! This is the second half of the complete ‘Beginners Guide to Learn How to Swing Dance’. This DVD picks up where Volume 1 left off and then takes you through the remaining beginner Swing Dance steps and patterns.
Learning how to dance using DanceCrazy.com’s DVD system has become a family activity. It is so much fun and so easy for beginners of all ages. The instructors provide step by step instructions and allow you to have fun while learning! The Learn To Swing Dance! Volume 2 DVD is progressive so you continue to build on the skills learned during Volume 1. I’m understanding more about timing, footwork, patterns, and techniques. The more I practice, the more comfortable I feel in my own dancing ability. The most important thing is that the Learn To Swing Dance! Volume 2 is a great family activity that we all enjoy together. The instructors teach everything in ways that are easy to understand and having them in your living room makes it super convenient. DVD menus let you go back and review! Each step is broken down thoroughly and the instructors teach the essentials on technique, style, and connection. At the end of this DVD set, my family will no longer be beginner’s because we will have learned enough to move to an intermediate level of social Swing Dancing! All without expensive dance lessons! This two hour dance instruction DVD has helped teach my family the basics and provided a solid foundation from which we can continue to learn and improve. Just having fun together has been the most important aspect!
DanceCrazy and Salsa Cray have a whole line of instructional dance DVDs and videos available on Amazon. Stay tuned as I bring in some friends to learn to dance using some of the other amazing dance line products available.
I received this product for review but all opinions and recommendations are my own.
Great instruction, fantastic beginner's Swing moves Dec 27, 2014
By Holly SouthernMomLoves
I received both Swing 1 & 2 for review and Eldon and Alison are back in this DVD. This is a straight continuation of the first DVD, so to be able to follow along with the moves in this DVD, you must have learned the basic steps in the first one.
They continue in the same teaching style with a demo of the move, the men's breakdown, the women's breakdown, danced together, and then danced to music. You'll have plenty of time to master each move before you move on to another.
In this DVD, you'll learn the Hammerlock, the Women's Tuck & Spin, the Arm Slide, the He Goes, She Goes, and the Dip. All very cool-looking continuing moves for the Basic step. Each move is shown for both the City Swing and the East Coast Swing, so you'll be fluent in all of the moves for both types of Swing.
Extras on the DVD include Tips, the 3 Different Types of Swing, and Social vs. Competitive. These DVDs teach you social swing dancing for getting out on any dance floor, so those tips advise avoiding any of the crazy Swing dancing stunts you might have seen in the movies...for your safety and others'!
This DVD is a must for finishing your beginning Swing education, and will show you lots of stylistic moves to keep your dancing fun and interesting. I loved learning Swing, and these instructors are the best.
For Beginners Dec 20, 2014
By Coffee Addicted Writer's Reviews
I'll start out by mentioning the little fact that I have always had two left feet and had no desire to learn how to dance until I started looking into low-intensity workouts. These types of DVDs from DancyCrazy.com is exactly what I was looking for as the instructors give you a step-by-step process for each dance.
Learn to Swing - Beginners Vol. 2 picks up directly where Vol. 1 leaves off, which features a male (Eldon) and a female (Alison) instructor giving you information on technique, style and teaches you the importance of connection with your dance partner. You'll learn how to dance the single and triple count East Coast Swing.
While I did enjoy trying out the Learn to Swing - Beginners Vol. 2 for the most part, I can't get over the cliched flooring and the yellow curtains in the background that is used for a couple other DanceCrazy.com releases. The DVD is helpful for beginners, but if you already know how to dance, then you probably won't find the DVD very usefully. Overall, Learn to Swing - Beginners Vol. 2 is meant to viewed by people who can't dance (like me). It is not as good as the first volume, but I thought it was still a bit of fun.
