    Great start for learning Ballroom/Social Dance with steps one ca

    Great start for learning Ballroom/Social Dance with steps one can use in almost any dance style; Foxtrot, Waltz, Cha Cha, Swing, etc.
    If you learn only these steps and techniques; you will be head and shoulders above most people on the dance floor. Very easy way to learn 
    but you will need to practice at home.
