Swing has a special place in my heart because my late grandfather loved to dance swing. He would dance with us when we were little, even though we really don't know how to properly dance the swing, to the song "Can't Take My Eye Off Of You" so whenever I hear that song, it reminds me of my late grandfather.

I took up ballroom dancing in one of my P.E. Class for 1 semester when I was in college and ever since then, I was quite intrigued and interested in ballroom dancing although I didn't get the chance and time to pursue my interest in ballroom dancing.
When I received the Beginner's Swing Volume 1 by DanceCrazy, I didn't know there were different kinds of swing dances. In this DVD, it teaches the East Coast and City Swing.

The City Swing is more of a bubbly step which I really liked. The steps are easy to follow and for me is simpler than other ballroom dances.

 I learned that my late grandfather used danced the East Coast Swing so I am more familiar to this version. I like how I learned how to do the steps more properly than before.

The DanceCrazy's Beginner's Swing is a really nice how-to video. It has multiple camera angles which at times focuses on the proper way to do the foot steps. I like how I can just rewind the DVD so that I can repeat the steps over and over again. It has a very simple approach and very easy to understand instructions as well as multiple angles on how to do the basic steps.

What I really like about this DVD is that I can practice the 2 different Swing dances in the comfort of my own home. I can just repeat the steps over and over again until I get the correct and proper form of the 2 dances.


You can purchase the Beginners Swing Volume 1 on Amazon for $14.95 with free shipping if you are a Prime member.
