5Learn to Waltz!  Dec 12, 2014
By Coffee Addicted Writer (Billy) "Billy"
The Waltz first became a dance during the 16th Century and continues to be one of the most popular dances today. If you're not a dancer, like me, then you've probably don't know too much about the Waltz, except for what we have seen in the movies and on Dancing With The Stars.

DanceCrazy.com has been releasing dancing workouts to DVD for several years. I've been trying out the Beginning Waltz: A Step-By-Step Guide! Volume 1 for the last few weeks. The 63-minute DVD features a male and a female instructors, whom guides you step-by-step through the basic Waltz steps.

The DVD is broken down into these sections:

The Box Step

Rise & Fall

Turning Box

Box with Walkaround Turn

Progressive Basics

Tips, Exercises & Extras

I would like to start out by saying that I have two left feet with no dancing background, so I don't ever expect to be dancing like Fred Astaire. The production for this DVD is simple with a only two instructors, a dance floor that resembles the linoleum floor in my basement and a yellowish curtain in the background. This could be an off point for some viewers, but I'm here to learn how to dance and not to watch a blockbuster film. The instructors do a pretty good job giving step-by-step instructions; ones that even I can understand. Overall, Beginning Waltz: A Step-By-Step Guide! Volume 1 is a fun easy way to learn how to Waltz. It would make a great stocking stuffer for Christmas!

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

5This video is great!  Jan 30, 2008
By AM Jerson "AM "Dancing Now""
My husband and I have been learning to dance, all different styles of dance. We bought this video and it's been non-stop waltzing in our house. I was a bit nervous and a little intimidated at first. You know, doing the waltz is not like just "shaking my groove thing", it takes learning and practice. This video answered many of my questions. After watching the video, I really loosened up. I felt like a princess. We've been gliding around our dining room ever since! I DEFINITELY recommend this video! - Jill

5A Must Have For Every Couple  Feb 26, 2015
By Tracy
My hubby and I have been using this to learn the waltz in the privacy of our own home. It is such a great way to learn! Instead of having to leave the house, and find a sitter, we have a step by step guide right on DVD! These DVD's are wonderful because they take you right from beginner and work your way up. They are perfect for anyone to learn! This is also great for every couple! We have had so much fun doing this after the children go to bed/ It is a wonderful bonding experience.

As an active blogger, I received this item for little or no cost. All opinions are 100% my own

5So easy to learn, and so beautiful!  Dec 18, 2014
By Holly SouthernMomLoves
I received Waltz Volume 1 to review. I need to mention that this is Volume 1, and you'll learn the basic Waltz steps, but for more advanced dances, like the Twinkle, you must purchase Volume 2. I only mention this because the Twinkle is in the description, but not on this DVD volume. But what you will learn are the Box, the Turning Box, the Box with Walkaround Turn, and the Progressive Basic.

The instructors are super-friendly, and I have to add, super-graceful. They start each dance section with a demonstration, then go through the Men's Breakdown, the Women's Breakdown, show it then danced together, then danced to music. They do this for the 4 Waltz variations you'll learn.

Don't be intimidated, they show you everything you'll need to know to look as graceful dancing as they do. They show the footwork, timing, the rise & fall, and the swaying necessary to complete the dance in style, and they'll show you each separately, and demonstrate multiple times.

There is a chapter for each of the 4 dance variants for the Waltz, but there are additional chapters that cover other aspects in detail: Footwork and Rise & Fall, Exercises, Tips, Waltz Social vs. Competitive, and Etiquette.

You will learn how to hold your partner, how to lead and guide (men), how to follow (ladies), what frame you would use on a social ballroom floor vs. what you would use in a competition, how to ask someone to dance (men), or if you're tired, how to politely refuse (ladies). They give tips on how to politely warn your partner of an impending crash instead of shouting (ladies), how to avoid a collision with another couple (men), and so much more.

I love that they go into so much detail, and give you plenty of instruction in repetition. It keeps you from having to grab the remote every few minutes to rewind.

They have portions of the dance Picture in Picture, so that you can see the whole dance, but you can also watch just the footwork in an inset box. They show you each dance from multiple angles so that you can follow along however is comfortable for you. If you've ever tried to reverse-mirror someone on a workout video and failed, this is for you (and me, lol.)

I loved this video. I have wanted to learn how to Waltz since I was a little girl playing Princess! I feel confident enough to get out on a dance floor now and do the basic steps. I wish I would have found this before my wedding! I know it would have made the day so much more special.

5Great Way To Loose Weight!  Jan 01, 2015
By Izyk's Mommy "Deb Picard"
So I will be honest. I didnt get this because I wanted to learn how to dance. I got it because I want to loose weight. I caught on with this dance pretty quick. It explains exactly what to do step by step. I have now been using the DVD for a month and I've lost 6 pounds. I received this product for free in exchange for my review.
