  • 1. Learn how to dance salsa, jive, samba, rhumba, foxtrot, waltz,chacha, tango and more with louis van Amstel from dancingwith the stars review"We have been watching the show for a couple of years and I am excited to learn this with mygirlfriend. I am surprising her for Christmas - I wanted to give her something romantic and shewill love this! - Bryce B. UtahIt is Saturday night, your friends and their significant others are off for another fun night of music and dancing. You wouldreally like to go, except you can’t dance, or at least you think you can’t and that is enough to stop you from going.Instead you stay home in your bath robe and watch “Dancing with the Stars’’. The gorgeous costumes, the infectious beat ofthe music, and of course the romance…..As you drift off to sleep you envision yourself being whirled across the dance floor with the hypnotic beat of the Sambasurrounding you in its warmth. You are in the arms of a handsome man. You smile up at him in confidence; his large handsencircle your waist as he glides you across the floor, making your feel like you are flying.Laughing triumphantly, you throw back your head and begin swaying with the music swing and grinding your hipsseductively as you drive yourself closer and closer to the edge of ... the dance floor.As the music draws to a close you gently pull apart, he tries to draw you back but as you turn from him you are swept awayonce again but this time in the arms of another man.You look back and catch the desperate look in your partner’s eyes as he watches you being lead away from him this time tothe gentle sway of the waltz.There is no stopping you tonight; you are barely able to catch your breath as one partner after the other claims you for adance. Visions of the foxtrot, the Jive, the Rumba and the Cha Cha fill your head.As you look around the room searching for the handsome partner that you shared your first dance with you notice that mostof the dancers have left. As if on cue the lights begin to dim. Perhaps, you sigh, it is time for you to go as well. As you headtowards the door, the band begins to play and somehow you sense it. He is there waiting for you in the middle of the dancefloor with his arms held out to you, looking at you as if you are the only woman in the world.The sensual music of the Tango pulls you into his arms as once again he folds you into his embrace, spinning you andtwirling you across the floor.As the song comes to an end you glance up at him and feel … like you must be dreaming.Well, yes of course you are, but the good news is that it will not be for long. With the help of Emmy NominatedChoreographer, Louis van Amstel, best known for his 3 hit seasons on Americas most popular dance show, Dancingwith the Stars, you will be able to learn all of the most popular dance steps in the ease and convenience of your ownhome.The eight disc selection allows you to choose from popular dancing steps such as: Cha Cha, Salsa, Waltz, Tango, Sumba,Jive, Rumba and the Foxtrot.Learning how to dance will help you gain more confidence, tone your body, and shed any unwanted pounds, and thegreatest part of it is that you will be having fun while doing it.Before long you too could be “Dancing with the Stars”.
  • 2. It’s Friday; thank goodness it’s the weekend. The kids have run out of clean socks and underwear, thefridge has been empty since Thursday, the house is unrecognizable, one of our kitchen cupboards hasbeen hanging on one hinge since the beginning of the week and I will finally have time to help mydaughter with her class project. Ah, time to relax at last; except that this weekend isn’t shaping up to bemuch fun for me.My girlfriends are disgusted with me. They think that I’m crazy to be wasting my life constantly workingand doing things that they deem as being NO FUN.Well, who can argue with them; lets face it, they’re right. I don’t run my life, my life runs me! In amoment of rebellion, and in light of this momentous discovery, I grab a pen and paper and quickly writedown all of the stuff I am to do this weekend and the possible solutions: • Kids have run out of clean underwear and socks – Solution = buy them new ones on the way home from the office. • Fridge is empty - Solution = order take-out • Kitchen cupboard is falling off its hinges – Solution = take it right off! (this will make it faster to get to the plates). Note to myself: remove all cupboard doors! • House is unrecognizable – Solution = offer my daughter and her two girl friends tickets to the movies if they restore the house to some semblance of order. • Daughters class project – Solution = after movie have the girls all work on their projects together.I can’t believe it, I am FREE! I have time to do whatever I want. It takes me about half a second todecide what that is; finally I can take those dance lessons that I saw advertised on ABC News the othernight “Louis Let’s Dance”. All of my friends have signed up and are loving it; and the funny thing is, theirhusbands are enjoying it as well.I can picture it now, the lights turned down low, the heady beat of Salsa music playing in thebackground… romance is definitely in the air. My man comes across the room to me wearing his tux,his arms open, inviting me into his strong embrace.I slowly walk towards him, my dress swaying as I gently move my hips from side to side. He grabs holdof my hand, putting his other hand behind me at the small of my back. Within a moment, he has mybody tight up against his own; he holds me possessively, like he will never let me go.The music starts, the dance has begun. We move together across the dance floor; he spins me awayfrom him, only to bring me back firmly, my body sliding up against his as together we twirl and grindand pump our bodies against one another, all to the hypnotic beat of the Salsa.I am breathless at the end of the dance. As I spin away from him, the music starts again this time it isthe Cha Cha. Once again our bodies move together; with smiles on our faces and laughter in ourhearts we masterfully meet the challenges of the dance.As the song is about to reach its crescendo, I pull away from him and then launch myself into his armsas he lifts me effortlessly from the dance floor over his head in our triumph.
  • 3. I have never felt so alive, as he gently brings me down from the top of the world, I softly wet my lips inanticipation for his kiss. I am so aroused I could burst; as our mouths draw nearer, I look into his eyesand …it is not my husband.I shake myself awake, realizing it was just a dream. I am still at work and my weekend of ease andadventure has not yet started.Still reeling from the passion of my dream, and thoughts of my mysterious dance partner, I call myhusband and together we plan a night to remember.With the help of Emmy Nominated Choreographer, Louis van Amstel, best known for his 3 hitseasons on Americas most popular dance show, Dancing with the Stars, my husband and I havelearned all of the most popular dance steps. We can now dance the Cha Cha, Salsa, Waltz, Tango,Sumba, Jive, Rumba and the Foxtrot.I am happy to report that I no longer dream of my handsome stranger. My day dreams are once againfilled with thoughts of my handsome husband, as we renew our love, make new memories and keepthe romance and passion alive.Learning how to dance has helped us gain more confidence, tone our bodies, and we have even beenable to shed some of those unwanted pounds, and we are having fun while doing it.Another huge bonus is that, now that Mom and Dad go out dancing on Saturday night, my kids havestarted to pitch in around the house. Now, we can all enjoy our weekends. We are truly blessed!Before long you too could be “Dancing like a Star”.If you are anything like me, you look at yourself in the mirror only if absolutely necessary. You haveinstalled a low watt light bulb in your bathroom and when you shower it is to the soft glow of a nightlight.Are we crazy, why are we doing this to ourselves?You are supposed to be happy about the way you look. You are supposed to be above all of the “neverending media pressure” to be a size 2, have long blonde hair, be an executive of a fortune 500company, have 2.5 kids, a large home (with a white picket fence) and of course, don’t forget the nanny,you have to have a nanny,(the husband part is optional though).Now if you’re a guy, you would probably not relate to the weight issue, as men do not seem to care.They still hold on to that age old philosophy “the bigger the better”. Got news for you guys, philosophydoesn’t count for much when you are trying to finds your significant other.So in answer to my first question: Yes, we are crazy. We should all listen to our mothers, who will tellus “Beauty is only skin deep and it is more important to be a nice person then it is to be a beautifulperson”. We should listen to our mom, but let’s face it, we won’t.Let’s forget the “looks” part of it and concentrate on what is really important, which is our health.
  • 4. It is time to get off the couch and make the changes in our lives that will make us a healthier, happiercamper.Exercise is the key to happiness, exercise is the key to happiness, I keep telling myself this over anover again, hoping to get up the inspiration to begin exercising; so far no luck.Hey wait a minute, lets make this fun, who say’s exercise has to be dull and full of pain? I’ve got abrilliant idea: I am going to take dance lessons.Not just any dance lessons mind you; I am going to take lessons from a Star. Just the other night I waswatching the news on ABC and on came this great looking guy named “Louis van Amstel, best knownfor his 3 hit seasons on Americas most popular dance show, Dancing with the Stars.If you are going to learn how to dance why not learn from the best? I have heard that he is a greatdance teacher; and on top of that he is really handsome (not that looks are important).I am going to learn all the greatest dance steps like the: Cha Cha, Salsa, Waltz, Tango, Sumba, Jive,Rumba and the Foxtrot; with Louis van Amstel as my own personal dance trainer; how can I lose?The best part is, I am going to lose those extra little love handles that I have been carrying around withme lately; and have fun while doing it.My girlfriend, who bought the 8 disc set a couple of months ago, is already dancing like a star. Shesays that the dance steps are really easy to learn and that I can practice them in the privacy of my ownhome; which is great because I am probably going to look like a fool for the first couple of dancelessons.I don’t have a boy friend right now but that is not going to stop me. I am going to learn how to dancefirst and then I will finally have the confidence to go out dancing with my friends on a Saturday night.Who knows “some enchanted evening, I may meet a stranger, I may meet a stranger from across acrowded room and some how well know, well know even then, that we will be seeing each other againand again……..for those of you that haven’t seen the movie that was a direct quote from the “SouthPacific” a must see for the romantic adventure lovers out there!Watch out world, here I come; I will be leaner and healthier and KNOW HOW TO DANCE! learn dance learning to dance dance schools dance school ballroom dance lessons learn how to dance dancin g classes ballroom dancing lessons learn to dance hip hop learn to salsa dance dance lesson learn to dance salsa dancin g with the stars ballroom dancing classes learn to dance the hustle salsa classes salsa dance classes dance competitions dance factory learn dancing how to ballroom dance how to dance at a party adult dance class dance mat dance lyrics couple s dance lessons dance history learn to wedding dance dance shoes dance instruction videos hip hop dance schools learn to dance online dance lessons learn to dance on line dance music u tube ballroom dancing dance studios learn to dance dvd dance steps learn to club dance learn thriller dance salsa dancing learn to dance vid eo dancin g lesson dance studio tap dance le ssons dance classes dancing lessons types of dance dance class hip hop dance how to le arn to dance ballroom dancing for kids belly dancing salsa dance local dance studios ballroom dance learn dance moves swing dance classes ballroom dancing steps online dance lessons learnin g dance swing dance learn ballroom dancing learn to ballroom dance adult dance classes arthur murray dance studio dance costumes learn to dance videos ballroom dance shoes pole dancing wedding dance lesson line dancing ballroom dancing shoes dance instructio n hip hop dance cla sses latin dance dance videos arthur murray dance hip hop dance moves wedding dance le ssons hip hop dance lessons dancing shoes louis dance bla st dance clothes dances tap dance how to dance salsa louis lets dance live to dance dance online school dance arthur murray ballroom dance classes private dance lessons latin dancing salsa dance le ssons adult dance lessons swing dance lessons dance learn to dance louis dance
