Question
Do you know of any good sites for finding dance videos of any style? I'm willing to pay for a site subscription if it has good videos with clear instructions

(PS. I know real life classes are important too, so I'm doing some Salsa classes at the moment)

Answer
Good Day mate:
I usually just use my search engines and type in dance , dance videos, free dance videos, dance classes, how to dance,  and special videos like swing videos, rock videos u tube dances, etc.

Then just keep going down the list till you find what you like. Be sure to use the free word or you will have a bazillion local unwanted impractical  for profit sites.

Ask your friends in the dance world or kung fu world for suggestions, also. I have found some martial artists are also dancers, like me. My local library has some good videos on video tape, also.
I also suggest chat sites where you ask this will make good suggestions.  Wish I could be of more help, mate. keep dancing.
If you are ever in Olympia Washington , usa look me up I am a great teacher.
