Thank you.Reply florence peterson saysFebruary 7, 2015 at 8:26 amThank you for the tips on timing. I love your instruction because you make it look so simple. I am taking an occasional ballroom class but I wish you lived in this area…I would sign up for a lifetime commitment I enjoy your video so much. I am thinking of joining your ballroom online and hope to do so in the next couple of weeks. You are fantastic. Thank you also for the trial classes that were free. FlorenceReply Mai Huynh saysFebruary 12, 2015 at 1:48 amThank you so much for your timing tip, now i know why i can not dance, I sure will try to dance without thinking about giving upReply Marc saysFebruary 25, 2015 at 9:22 amDifferent people have different ways of describing these beats. I’m still a beginner, but it seems to me that the 4 beats in a Cha-Cha are more like 1-2-CHA-CHA-4 aren’t they?Reply Leon Turetsky saysFebruary 28, 2015 at 1:26 pmHi Marc,No the way we count the Cha Cha is “1,2,3 Cha Cha” and repeat.As the video demonstrates the most important thing is to understand the beat value of the counts… the “cha” is only half of the beat. While the 1,2,3 are all full beats.Reply Christine saysApril 25, 2015 at 11:33 amHi Leon, I am 49 years old, have always been loving to learn ballroom dancing… but I am so clumsy, have no clue or background of any knowledge about any steps in any type of dances…and I am also a very intimidated person and shy, I am afraid of attending dancing classes, I watched your free video in my mail, but still couldn’t figure out the next move…[ I guessed I am okay dancing by myself; but I don’t know the steps when with a partner], and on top, my husband is a good dancer; but he never wants to teach me, and never wants me to go to dance classes because he has a very narrow mind of an old fashion guy…I only want to learn to prove to him even if he never wants to teach me, I still can do it, but it has been for 25 years I tried but still could never get the idea of what to do.:(Reply Leon Turetsky saysApril 25, 2015 at 6:20 pmHi Christine, did you join as a member? When you do you can can learn each dance step by step from the beginning!Reply Ferdinand Pereira saysMay 4, 2015 at 10:05 pmHi Leon, We have been browsing your site and find that your sessions are very well explained. We live in India. We are near- senior, never seriously tried dancing before. We have been trying to get a hang of one sample – the cha-cha-cha. We need a couple of weeks more to decide if we go ahead or not. Till then, thanks. Ferdy.Reply INDOQQ saysMay 6, 2015 at 10:59 pmThank you so much for sharing this awesome postReply Tidiane saysMay 20, 2015 at 5:05 pmWonderful, clear explanations very helpful. I am considering being member of the club because dancing is my passion.Reply ach-anandan saysJune 2, 2015 at 2:38 amI liked the lessons so much thanks easy to pick upReply Aida saysJune 9, 2015 at 8:32 pmLovely lessons every now and then. Leon and Kim are amiable, with their Tango, Cha-Cha and Waltz among other dances. They always portray the dance lessons beautifully. Thank you for sharing, you are doing an amazing dance lessons for us. I am glad I signed the yearly membership. Keep up the Passion 4 Dancing, I am delighted that you are my teachers.Reply Wilna saysOctober 14, 2015 at 3:23 pmThanks so much Leon – this is really great getting tips like these online straight away. Wow. You are so right : The timing is important because exactly as you say: dancing is expressing yourself to music. I am so glad I found your website. You speak my language … DANCING 🙂 . The Cha Cha used to frustrate me but the way Kim keeps it simple and clear, I think I’ve found what I’ve been doing wrong and it feels completely different now that I’ve copied her technique. I’ve heard it many times at lessons but somehow the way you show it on video makes it clear – thank you! To anyone who might hesitate to learn how to dance …. just do it and keep at it. Once it ‘clicks’ you will feel like a zillion dollars. With these online lessons of Leon’s you don’t have to fake it till you make it – you can do it right, right from the word go. Hope to be a member soon!Reply isi saysDecember 25, 2015 at 12:36 pmThanks, but i will internationel dance, not american style.Reply Catherine Simons saysJanuary 6, 2016 at 3:14 amThankyou so much for the tips. This is awesome, I am 60 years young and dancing is my passion ever since I was a little girl. I did take some lessons at one time but only for social gatherings. I appreciate the lessons u send and hope to be a pro soon. Kind regards.Reply jerome keslin saysJanuary 14, 2016 at 1:29 amConcerning the waltz. Can you suggest any modern pop or rock songs which are suitable for waltzing to? Not Viennese pleaseReply Brunhilde Massa saysJanuary 19, 2016 at 7:01 amWas really looking forward to my 5 free lessons. Unfortunately could not play them on my computer, no matter how much I try. I was very disappointed. 🙁Reply Leon Turetsky saysJanuary 19, 2016 at 7:51 amBrunhilde Massa, I just sent you an email regarding this. Please discuss any technical details directly via email. It is most likely something with your browser. Try chrome or firefox.Reply Fred Lines saysMarch 8, 2016 at 10:13 amYour videos are great and my (second) wife and I think they so easy to follow and we are learning from them. I learnt to dance a long long time ago and I have shown my wife the steps I remember but the two dances we can not get together are the Rumba and Foxtrot. We go dancing twice a month when we can we are in good health I am 80yr my wife 76yr so with your help now we should crack it.Reply Audeen saysJuly 7, 2016 at 5:15 pmI have a passion for dancing I am a great Linedancer but now have an instreast in this kind of dancing and I do inten to join but I want to proses what you have sent me first one question do you know of the dance call the three stepReply Rodica saysJuly 11, 2016 at 11:20 pmThanks for your free lessons . Very easy to understand , clear and complete . I am interested only in salsa dancing , the social type . Can I buy only salsa lessons at a lower price .? I just retired and live an a reduced pension and I discovered salsa approx. 5mo ago . Sorry you are not in Calofornia . I have big problems with turns and looking on the computer ,I found that every instructor has a different way of doing it . How do I know which is simpler to do for an older person with not too good equilibrium and speed . I have problems spoting , too. Please help! Thank you . RodicaReply Leon Turetsky saysJuly 12, 2016 at 8:01 pmHi Rodica,If you are only interested in Salsa you can subscribe for our monthly plan that gives you access to all our lessons including Salsa and you can cancel at anytime. Here are the plans: https://www.passion4dancing.com/membership-info/Reply Johanna saysFebruary 2, 2017 at 8:01 amGreat teaching skills , I love your style and easy stepsReply Matt saysSeptember 17, 2017 at 11:15 pmI’m learning in Thailand so it’s useful to have your English explanations to supplement those of my Thai instructor, who speaks no English.Reply Sharon saysOctober 6, 2017 at 11:26 amThanks.. your free lessons are very clear and amazing but .before I sign up for the membership i just want to make sure that i master the beginners steps first. .Do you have DVD videos that i can buy. . then i can practise in front of the TV.Reply MattOwensRees saysOctober 6, 2017 at 1:36 pmOriginally, Sharon, I thought the same. Get the basic steps right first then join up. But I changed my mind and became a full member straight away.There are some good technique videos that are only available to members on the yearly plan. One on posture, one on changing weight from foot to foot. And the Cuban Motion videos were particularly helpful in the Cha Cha. All useful for getting the steps looking correct.What I did not want to do is just learn the steps and then have to “unlearn” any bad habits I had on foot and body movement.I practice 1 hour a day in front of the TV with the P4D videos and at group classes twice a weekReply Leon Turetsky saysOctober 6, 2017 at 1:59 pmThanks Matt, glad you find value in our videos!While we do not offer DVDs at the moment, all our videos are view-able online and we also offer a download add-on (one time payment for yearly members) for our videos which you can get and burn them on a dvd for example to watch on tv.Another option is just get an HDMI cable to hook up your computer to TV and you can watch our lessons on tv this way without any dvds.Reply Martha saysOctober 7, 2017 at 7:08 pmHi Leon, The year starts the date you join and goes to the same date for the following year. Correct?Reply MattOwensRees saysOctober 7, 2017 at 8:08 pmI was replying to Sharon, Leon. I am quite happy not having dvdsMy point was the importance of watching MORE THAN the free videosReply Roy saysNovember 2, 2017 at 10:22 amHi Leon,I’m glad I found your website. I can dance and I’m good at it. Sometimes , turning is still a challenge for me.Watching your your videos enhances my ability and moves. Thanks.Reply Lily Chau saysNovember 21, 2017 at 3:04 pmHi Leon im glad to found your website , your free lesson are very well ! clear and easy to understand！ it very help to learn danceing … thanks ! I’m not so good at English , speak not very well …Reply Francis saysMarch 4, 2018 at 3:31 amOne of the best teaching techniques, even a person who does not know to dance will definitely learnReply JOHN saysMarch 8, 2018 at 5:14 pmgreat lessons ! I wish to have those lessons on my discs in order to practice more and moreReply Christine saysMarch 18, 2019 at 10:49 amwoweeee! I love this…… I am currently going for lessons in Ballroom/Latin and feel that your hints and tips and styling could only enhance my dancing!warm regards ChristineReply Travis saysApril 1, 2019 at 12:36 pmWhat is the timing for the waltz?Reply Leon Turetsky saysApril 2, 2019 at 10:22 amTiming for waltz is 1,2,3, all equal beats.Reply Jim Rester saysSeptember 9, 2019 at 9:20 pmThank you, that was helpful, especially visualizing what you are going to do before you get on the dance floorReplyLeave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
