Reviews of Double Trouble Volume 1 (many from teachers and club organizers):

Gary (runs DanceRoc in Perth, Australia):
I have now reviewed the tape and I am delighted with it. You are an excellent teacher with a solid focus on technique. Contrasting the moves with freestyle is most helpful also. The speed of the moves is just about right, any faster and one would be pressing replay constantly. The two ladies helping were very disciplined and pleasant to watch.

As a first up starters video, I thought the moves were a good choice, i.e. they look good, not too difficult but the odd one will really stretch the new dancer to Double Trouble. All in all, a great effort John.

Melinda (Le Groove Dance Co.):
I finally received your double trouble video today. Just want to say that I think your video is really great and that I think that your teaching method is excellent - your explanations are very thorough. Well done.

Ian:
A short while ago I purchased your Double Trouble DVD. I found the teaching style excellent and easy to follow, and I can now confidently perform many of the moves in freestyle with 2 ladies picked at random. It is a great way of livening up a freestyle, and now I'm ready to move on...

Graham (Sydney, Australia):
I found the tape VERY good indeed. There are messages that will help ANY Modern Jive dancer whether Tripling* or not (e.g. the 'air' lead, quiet and noisy hands etc). Your delivery and sound is very good, very clear, just as it was at the workshop you did over here. All in all well done on a very professional video.

*As I am sure you know, the Ozzies call Double Trouble "Triples".

Alan:
I have borrowed a friend's copy and am very impressed, and would now like to own my own copy.

Dorothy:
Got my Double Trouble video, it is brilliant, thanks.

Geoff:
I have recently purchased your double trouble video and have found it very good. I wondered if you could put me on your data base and let me know of any workshops you may be doing for this type of dancing.

Duncan:
I managed to watch the Double Trouble video last night. Excellent, please let me know when you release any more Double Trouble videos or DVDs!

Andy:
I just wanted to say thanks for sending the Double Trouble DVD. It arrived yesterday. I have started to watch the first disc already. It's great. Once again, many thanks :o)

Hi, just wanted to say that myself and my 2 ladies had great fun watching and learning (lots) from the Double Trouble DVD. It's FAB. Thanks again!! :o)

Johnathan:
The Double Trouble DVD is brilliant; even if you never try it the tips on lead and follow and how to lower a lady are worth the price alone. You should do more DVDs, especially on technique.

Many thanks to those who sent these unsolicited comments - I hope you donít mind me reproducing them here!
