... and More!

     The basics taught on this DVD are the main way Southern California dances its social West Coast Swing. All patterns are strictly done in the "Slotted Movement and Anchor Steps." Sonny's "French Cross" with the contemporary "&3" timing are highly centered upon. Older, more "Traditional Timing" also discussed.

     Sonny's basics are one of the best Basics one can use for West Coast Swing for a solid foundation in WCS... Good dance technique is ageless. They are up to date as well as having many years of knowledge built right in. If you can't be here for his regular classes or currently are in his class and want to practice along with a video .... these DVD's are the next best thing to Sonny actually being there with you.

These DVD's are also great for:
Couples who tend to argue about how it's done.
Have a friend or S/O who wants to start, but is a little shy & wants to know something before taking a lesson.
Tend to forget the patterns while enrolled in Sonny's Class or wish to create a detailed video notebook.
Want to know how to do the opposite role of the dance ... correctly.
Want to practice correctly at home and don't want to rely on ones own memory.
You learn better by watching.
A Great dancing Gift !
