It's important to know that this is disk 1 of a two part set. You can rent disk 2 at Danceflix as well.

Can't recommend these enough. A bit "corny" at times, but they spend a lot of time teaching detailed technique with the moves and giving you lots of good ideas.

You get two sets of instructors - two couples - on these dvds and with that you get their different ideas and styles.

Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced moves here. Nearly all very good with a surprising amount of carry-over to other dances! Worth the time invested, for sure.

Balboa is a great dance. We dance it to many kinds of music; a very adaptable dance once you get the real hang of it.

This dvd, without saying much about it, covers "closed" Balboa and "open" Balboa - referring to your embrace, or, lack of it.

Balboa is a fun swing dance, and a close couples dance too - again, once you get the hang of it.

Good luck!
