    Nicely done, thanks for sharing this!

    You know, if you put together a long instructable with several steps and multiple videos, that would be great to see. Kind of like a full beginner's guide, all in one place, you know?

    I bet that would get a decent amount of attention. There are not a lot of dancing tutorials on instructables! :)
