Would it be worthwhile creating a directory of teaching (or other) videos on PDO? Just wondered what others thought.
Sure - that would be great.  Would you like to try Smiley

I'd be willing to try if you and PDO members thought it was a worthwhile effort. If so, I could create an initial directory and go from there with PDO member input. I'm thinking it would be hierarchical directory with links to get to lower levels. Once you got to the lowest level, information about a desired teaching (or other) video would be provided.

Let me know what you'd like to do.

I think it would be terrific - but maybe first we should find out if the rest of the group would use and value it.  Let me suggest it on the PDO discuss site.
and thanks for the offer...

We could also have a list/directory of useful youtube links.

A great tango and foxtrot by Andrew and Lorraine Sinkinson. (Be sure to view in HQ mode.)

you must be reading my mind - or at least my intent.  I'm at the YCC (yellow cup cafe) and going to meet DP here to go over youtubes before our practise - and tango is first on our list.  This is SO useful!  IN particular because they are tall, (as are we).

THANKS!!

and I haven't even looked at the foxtrot yet - his specialty...

BTW - the first frame (and hte lights on the floor) identify the occasion - 'Come Dancing' a long-standing TV show in England. 

I'd be interested in the 'school' affiliation.  He reminds me a bit of Eggleton (will I ever spell that righ - always end up wth egg on my face).

The foxtrot is interesting too - with the lenghthened time on the 3, giving it a soaring aspect.  Indeed they seem to spend a lot of time 'up' making the foxtrot look a lot lighter than many other couples.... a beautiful show of grace and economy

We would definitely be interested in a directory; we have several teaching DVDs and are looking for some decent international rumba, samba and jive that do not involve Cory "Just...For...You" Ballas.

We have Jim and Janelle's American Waltz on VHS but I think I might splurge and buy the DVDs. Also need some International Waltz resources, but no idea which instructors to lean toward.
 
OH, and some cha cha that is not taught by Ron Montez.

It's mighty expensive buying instructional resources via trial and error, some guidance will be very helpful.
