- Ulm, Germany 5 Stars
After a pause from dancing of nearly 15 years my wife and I started to dance again. As our free time is limited, we have been searching around for instructional videos/DVDs which would help us to learn more steps. A friend of mine showed me the "Dance with Passion" DVD and I was really overwhelmed. This was exactly what I had been looking for.
As a start I bought the Jive DVD. It is simply fantastic to watch. Slavik and Carina must have had real fun when doing the DVD. They are perfect dancers and Corky Ballas is very good narrator from the "off". Every step is shown at the beginning, then the man's and the lady's steps are explained, then finally man's lead with steps. What I found really helpfully was the explanation of some variations or developments
the dancers can do from the initial figure (for example from the basic fallaway/throwaway step).
At the end of every level, a nice routine is performed by Slavik and Carina which is a combination of the steps just explained before.
Here is just one minor point for improvement: When studying one particular step, we sometimes viewed the step with music many, many times. Here it would have been helpful to have the possibility to let the DVD automatically repeat this particular step to view the sequence over and over again.
The main part of the DVD is the explanation of the different steps. Then there is some advertisement and a "Behind the scenes" part.
As a conclusion I highly recommend this DVD to anyone who is interested in learning Jive, the steps, the style, the movement, the hip actions.
And I will soon order the other four DVDs.
