I agree with SmoothGeezer. Instructional videos can be VERY helpful; you can watch a figure being done correctly (and listen to the explanation) as many times as you need. But it can't tell you "You're not doing that quite right, but if you make this change . . ." Group lessons are a very good suggestion. And look for dance clubs that may offer inexpensive lessons. There were seven professional instructors at the local USA Dance chapter's monthly dance last night, and the chapter also has inexpensive weekly dance classes taught by pros. And yes, dancing with a partner is very different from dancing by yourself.
