Jean Butler knows Irish dance. As the original star of Riverdance, she took Irish dancing to a new level showing just how exciting it can be. Suitable for those just beginning to explore Irish dance to the more accomplished dancer, Jean Butler's Irish Dance is a series of techniques and exercises created by Jean herself. Now you can dance with Jean at home or in the classroom as she shares the methods she developed over the years and honed through endless hours of practice. Using the special menu features you can even create and program your own personal routines.
Unique to the DVD is a stunning new dance performance, entitled Blue by Jean Butler, an explosive group jam session to the music of U2, and a behind-the-scenes look at one of Jean's Workshops. Jean takes a holistic view of dancing and stresses the importance of looking after body and mind. Dance with Jean and enjoy becoming the best dancer you can be.
"So, now that I've discovered the wonderful world of Irish Dance, and, not to mention, had a few showers, it's easy to think of this as just another in a long line of workout-described-as-dance DVDs. Instead, we have a disc that could easily take the place of a beginner, weeks-long Irish Dancing class that could cost hundreds of dollars. For less than $20, not only is most of the same material covered, but you are also being taught by a master of her craft, and, more importantly (at least to me), you don't have to make a fool out of yourself in front of other, much more skilled dancers. My only critics were my cats, who only complained when I accidentally performed a "Kick Out" that they'll never forget.
This DVD is formatted to where you can pick and choose how you wish to learn these steps. Having the ability to turn different aspects of the instruction is good enough, but being able to program the order of the instructional segments is an even nicer touch. Decent audio and video presentations and a few more extras make this a heck of a package for anyone who's even briefly thought about learning the most difficult dancing style in the world." - Digitally Obsessed
