Great wedding dance instruction Sep 08, 2008
By Jenna Stewart
I bought this dvd package because I wanted to learn how to dance for my wedding. I've never been that comfortable dancing free-form, so I thought learning a structured dance would be best for me. These videos definitely show you everything and explain all the dance moves in a well organized way. The instructors gave lots of details and moved at an easy pace so it wasn't difficult to get all the steps straight. Using these videos was so helpful and I'm glad I did it. When I was looking for wedding videos I discovered that this is actually the trimmed down version of the bigger 5 DVD pack, and it's much cheaper, so you really can't beat it. It's got great moves, it's a low price, and it actually teaches you how to dance. Well worth it.

So You Think You Can Dance Aug 12, 2011
By Bernd VanderSchuur
With this video, yes you can. Very easy to follow with instructions that are visually reinforced. Even a guy with two left feet, like me, can learn to be the dance king. I taught my wife a few simple steps and we became the hit of the wedding party as we foxtrotted and waltzed all over the floor. Comments I got were, "Where did you learn to dance like that?" and "I didn't know you could dance like that!".
One hint, though: Get this video early - don't wait until the week before your wedding like I did. You need at least a month of practice for all of the steps to become easy. If you apply yourself just a half hour each night, you can really get the basics down pat.
Enjoy. Make Fred and Ginger envious.

Simpler/cheaper version of the Wedding Dance Mastery System by the same people Jul 08, 2015
By Gadget Girl

My husband & I took ballroom / social dance lessons for a while, but then the teachers moved out of town. After attending a family wedding recently, I realized I really wanted to brush up on what we knew, and add a few more steps. I purchased theWedding Dance Mastery System, 5 DVD Set: A Complete Instructional Step By Step Guide to Dancing at Your Wedding and this set as well. This set is a subset of the other set, so if you want to learn more dances, and more steps, I suggest the other set. If you just want to survive the wedding dance & look good, this set should do it.
The description for this item is limited, so:
'What's Included - also known as - all the fabulous steps you can learn!
* Disk 1 - Foxtrot/ Waltz:
** FOXTROT: The Basic Step, Left Rock Turn, The Sway Step, The Promenade, Promenade with Underarm Turn, The Dip
** WALTZ: The box step, the Turning Box, Box with Walk around turn, Progressive Basic, Open Break with Underarm Turn, The Twinkle, The Promenade, The Dip, Wedding Dance Tips
* Disk 2 - Swing/ Rumba:
** SWING: Basic Step, Release Break, Right Underarm Turn, Left Underarm turn, Right & Left Turn, The Cuddle, The Dip
** RUMBA: The Box Step, Turning Box, Box with walk around turn, Rumba Rocks, Cross Body Lead, The Dip, Credit / Outtakes
'Conclusion: This is a simplified version of Wedding Dance Mastery System, 5 DVD Set: A Complete Instructional Step By Step Guide to Dancing at Your Wedding , which I also reviewed. They teach you less steps for each dance(check my review for the steps included in the more complete system), but still teaches you the basics of the dances. The dance sequences are left out, as is the tips section that appears on some of the other disks on the mastery system. I prefer the more complete system, but this is cheaper and will get you through the dance. The Mastery system will keep you dancing after the wedding is long over. I purchased this product at a discounted price and was asked for my honest review based on my actual use of this product. After using it, I will tell you, IT WORKS, and this is a bargain compared to the dance lessons we took. It's less than signing one of us up for the community classes. It would be a great gift for a bride to be (or groom to be), but it's great for anyone who wants to learn to dance. Please let me know if this review was helpful. I will always update if I get additional insights after further using the product, and I try to answer any questions left in comments.

Worth every penny Jun 28, 2015
My wife and I do not dance. Along comes the opportunity to try a product at a discount that can walk us through the steps, literally. This is incredible for the price! Everything is well explained and we did not feel rushed through it or anything. It was step-by-step and very helpful for us. Although we are not going out and doing the foxtrot in public yet, we are finding the steps and explanations easy to follow and are doing well so far even though we only had it for a short time. Given a couple of weeks, I am sure we would have at least three of the dances down well enough to be confident in public and look like we've been doing this for years. We are extremely happy and grateful we could get good lessons at a reasonable price because going to a dance school would be way too expensive.

Fun to learn and good exercise! Jul 23, 2015
By Rebecca Bean
I purchased this set along with several others from DanceCrazy. In this set of 2 DVD's, they teach you all the basics of the Waltz, Foxtrot, Swing, and Rumba. The focus is on dancing at weddings - so this would be a perfect gift for engaged couples. It would also be helpful for anyone that feels a little awkward in social events that involve dancing. It starts from the beginning skill level and builds. I found it entertaining throughout and fun to learn. They present it well, with visual examples and detailed instruction in the four-hour course. Would recommend! I received this product to try for free in exchange for an honest, unbiased product review. All opinions expressed are truly my own.
