Learn and Master Ballroom Dance Review

Learn and Master Ballroom Dance

If Dancing With The Stars lights your fire, Legacy Learning System’s Learn and Master Ballroom Dance will seal the deal and have you moving gracefully and rhythmically to all those great ballroom tunes. Learning to dance by DVD instructions really works. It’s fun, made much easier by a great video curriculum and learning at home makes for about as comfortable a learning experience as could be had. New and intermediate ballroom dancers can learn from dynamic professional instructors as they practice and smooth the moves on their own schedules in their own homes. There’s no pressure to keep up with the class, and students can start with any of the six critical ballroom dances taught by the program.

The creators of these beautifully crafted lesson plans knew what they were doing when they used Mark Short and Jaimie Simon as the instructors. Learning from them is fun, exciting and very stimulating, not to mention healthy exercise. Every lesson plan instills the experience and confidence students need to step on the floor and strut their stuff.

Learning Materials
Rating Reason

Course materials include 13 DVDs, 6 CDs and a visual aid workbook complete with all the steps and dance positions for each figure. This book lets students visualize the moves and rehearse the steps at their own pace. The workbook compliments the dance-along DVDs and musically coordinated CDs and serves as a quick reference guide when questions arise.

The six CDs are compilations of the music used on the DVDs. The selections are perfectly suited for private rehearsals of whichever ballroom dance the student is practicing. The CD’s allow students the opportunity to put their visual aids to work at their own pace. There’s no classroom pressure here! Students have varied tempos and plenty of variety to sweeten their learning enjoyment.

Most beginners tend to start slowly and pick up the pace as they move through the classes. Many intermediate dancers jump right in and concentrate on a particular dance. Whatever the student’s dancing experience, Learn and Master Ballroom Dance has the right curriculum.

The 13 DVDs are at the core of the program’s learning experience. The Tango, Foxtrot, Rumba, Cha Cha, Waltz and Swing steps that students see on television are just a few rehearsals away.

Each DVD dance lesson begins with an explanation of the timing and immediately sets the correct posture. These two critical elements not only get the student in the proper mindset, but also get students ready for stage two of each dance.

Stage two of each dance class explains three figures for the dance and then takes the student through the steps of those figures. By then, students will already know why Learn How to Ballroom Dance is the most popular ballroom dance video on the market. Students can learn either the front and back or lead and follow perspectives.

Rating Reason

For dancers-to-be who want to learn and keep improving their ballroom figures, Legacy Learning’s Learn and Master Ballroom Dance is an unparalleled dancing experience.
