So Fun! Dec 16, 2014
A great thing about knowing someone who loves to dance is getting them DVD's to help them improve that they will love! When I saw this Swing Dance, Volume 2 (2 of 2) - Beginning Swing Dance by DanceCrazy I loved it. I couldn’t wait to get it and give it to my mom and her boyfriend who are in love with Swing Dancing! She loved it and does it every chance she can get! She has always loved Swing Dancing and now with this DVD she can better herself and her Swing dancing!
The instructor on the DVD breaks steps down, and repeats them. The instruction on the DVD was helpful and moved slowly through the paces including partner connection and style. Before you know it you will be dancing entire Swing Dance patterns. My mom picked up pretty quickly and I even decided to join her! These DVDs are easy to follow and good for anyone! I would highly recommend this product to anyone especially as a Christmas Gift!

Let's Dance! Feb 24, 2015
"Home, Tech and Fashion Product Blogger"
Every DanceCrazy dvd has been easy to follow and full of helpful advice and tips. The moves are displayed slowly and at full speed, and fully explained by the excellent hosts!
I can't believe how quickly I am learning, and DEFINITELY recommend this to anyone who wants to learn Swing.
Directions are very detailed and easy to follow, and the charm of the instructor(s) helps command attention!

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.

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 (Billy)
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.
