I was looking for something to show me the basic steps for the American Style (Smooth or Social) Foxtrot.
I have been involved in ballroom dancing for some time (international style) and I have to disagree with the previous comments of KFHOZ.
What I saw was basically what I learned in a public course. Yes, it is basic, but it shows you the steps. the way they are to be danced. Further you also need to continue with the series. A DVD is not there to replace a teacher! it is there to supplement the teacher's knowledge and help you, the student, to work the steps and the techniques, on your own or with your partner.
One needs also to get the correct style of dancing. For example, as we were looking to refresh our knowledge of International Foxtrot we enrolled in this course called "ballroom Foxtrot" to find out that they were teaching "Social Foxtrot", or similar to American style. They were teaching without handouts so we had to look for information to complement the lessons. This DVD is helping us. If you need to get into more details for a DVD you need to invest with specialized companies (like Dancevision) to give you a corresponding DVD. At this point this DVD suffices. good luck with your dancing!

I am sorry to give anyone's work a bad rating, but this DVD will discourage a beginner more than anything else. I know how to dance and was trying to use this to help me teach a friend.
