About the DVD:

This DVD is geared toward getting a great look and style in Balboa and Bal-Swing. But it’s much more than just a collection of followers’ variations — it’s a DVD about showing followers how to build and invent their own styles and empower their own voices.

It explains how a follower like Kate has created hers based on the mechanics and spirit of Balboa and Bal-swing. It doesn’t just explain what a follower can do, but why, when, and how a follower can do it. The DVD also covers beginner to advanced styling ideas and variations.
