    I've taken about 8 EC lessons and attended one dance.

    At the dance, I found myself cycling through the same three patterns (I've learned a few more, but they are not yet in my 'active dance vocabulary'), which I'm sure is quite boring for my dance partners.

    I'd like to view one or more videos that demonstrate dancing EC with a limited number of basic-level patterns, say 5-6, as an inspiration for practice.

    I'm sure these videos exist, although they have resisted my pathetic attempts to find them by searching dance-forums or google-Internet.

    I would appreciate any pointers.

    Look up this playlist on Youtube - "Swing - It's About Momentum"

    I think Dance Vision offers video lessons in ECS. You can buy DVDs, streaming or both.

    The nice thing is you can buy a single step or pick a few if you stream. No need to buy a whole syllabus level. And you can watch on your phone like YT.

    Thanks, Loki.

    I hadn't heard of Dance Vision, but I'll look into their DVDs.

    They also sell manuals if you prefer written instructions.

    That's good to know.

    Actually, a combination of video and manual seems ideal to me.
