About the levels, from the instructor:
Vol 1: Basic
"Created for the beginning student with little to no experience, or to someone who has had tap before and would like a supplementary video to improve their technique. Just as advanced ballet dancers still take beginning classes from time to time, I recommend this video as a great tool to clarify and solidify your technique." retail price: $24.95. Region-Free DVD (or Digital Download .mov link/Streaming link), NTSC format. Run time: approx. 95 minutes.
Vol 2: Intermediate
"Less focus on technique, and more just ëdoing stepsí and groupings of steps. Tempos are faster in this video. Also included in the video are a couple of speed steps, a short soft shoe combination, and a bonus clip of a Single Time Step. DVD feature: 'music only' track--dance along to each song without background taps or comments!"
retail price: $24.95. Region-Free DVD (or Digital Download .mov link/Streaming link), NTSC format. Run time: approx. 85 minutes.
Vol 3: Time Step Boot Camp
I created this video to feature one of the most famous and most requested types of tap steps, the Time Step. I have learned a bunch of Time Steps over the years, and this video will teach some of the most popular ones out there. Each style of Time Step will be taught in 3 versions, a Single, Double, and Triple (and in some cases, a Double Triple). All counts are clearly explained, as are simple rules that you can apply to make remembering them easier. Intermediate level. retail price: $24.95. Region-Free DVD (or Digital Download .mov link/Streaming link), NTSC format. Run time: approx. 70 minutes.

Nowadays, Soft-Shoe is often danced with tap shoes, but using soft-soled shoes with this video is fine, as well!" Video contains soft-shoe foundation steps, exercises, and a fun 3+ minute routine incorporating all the steps taught on the video. Beginning through intermediate level. Retail price: $24.95.
