Editor's Caveat: A grouping of nifty figures this is not! Due to the nature of
the content, the text here is more important than the videos, the reverse
of every other section in DanceTutor to date.

How it works:
  • 1) you create an account starting on the home page
  • 2) follow the prompts & select a dance(s)
  • 3) pay by credit card, PayPal or check ($7 or $9)
and you have access to the instruction video pages for 1 or 2 months,
depending on which you have selected.
