This is the season for giving gifts, and for making new resolutions in your life. I found that this product is a great gift, a great activity, and a great way to work out. So on my holiday list this year is Ballroom Dancing Mastery System from DanceCrazy.
Ballroom Dancing Mastery System is a step by step progressive dance lesson program. It comes as a seven disc set and each dvd disc is two hours in length. It offers picture in picture so you can see up close the dancers' feet. It helps beginners understand the fundamental concepts of timing and footwork. The Ballroom Dancing Mastery System is over twelve hours of private dance lessons. In this set is two discs of four dances. The four dances in the Ballroom Dancing Mastery System are the Waltz, Swing, Rumba and Foxtrot. DanceCrazy does offer many other dance sets, some just as a single DVD and others as sets.
We tried out all of these dvds, and by tried out I mean at least watched them, and attempted to do the dance moves. My husband and I come from two completely different dance backgrounds. I have been dancing since the age of three, majored in theater in college, and was a professional ballerina for a dance company. My husband knows music, has rhythm and enthusiasm, but no formal dance training at all, nor not much interest in learning ballroom dancing. He ended up intrigued to try it out at least.
Overall we liked the Ballroom Dancing Mastery System (7 DVD Set). I think it is a great value, for only $24.95 you learn four different ballroom dances. Before starting a new dance they give you some brief information about it and I found that interesting, and it helped me to keep in mind what I would look like if I were dancing the dance in the way it was intended.
The video is very instructional and not flashy at all. It does really make you feel like you are in a private dance class. They even take the time and show you different angles of each step, which both my husband and I found very helpful. They also do each step individually for the man and for the woman. Each DVD has a scene selection which is basically one new step, so you can go at your own pace and learn one step a week if you wanted. As mainly a ballet dancer, I am not the best at ballroom dancing, so learning some of the steps was a little difficult, but they made it very easy to understand which both my husband and I really enjoyed.
We only found a couple down sides to the videos, mainly the outfits. The Ballroom Mastery System is taught as if it is a serious, private dance class. In a serious, private dance class you would be in a leotard type outfit. Our problem is, in a couple of the dances, they wore very covering and distracting clothing. You could not see their legs or their body form. The man and woman were both guilty of faulty costumes, a simple outfit would have worked fine.
As a dancer I thought it was fun and a great workout. You have to love dance or want to learn ballroom dancing or you will not like this DVD set. However, both my husband and I did find it fun, informative and a great workout. Our favorite was the Rumba. They had perfectly fit outfits and really explained everything from how to hold your ribcage and hips down to your finger tips.
Ballroom Dancing Mastery System (7 DVD set) is a great gift for anyone who loves dance or wants to learn to dance. Also, it is great if you are getting married and want to learn to dance at your wedding or a special occasion. It is a fun way to lose weight with your partner in the privacy of your home and at your convenience. It is a great price of $24.95 for all 7 DVDS of Waltz, Swing, Rumba and Foxtrot. Next Generation Stay At Home Mom gives Ballroom Dancing Mastery System (7 DVD set) 5 stars!
