This 52 min DVD is divided to 6 sessions to a wide variety of tricks which is cool for beginners. However, I think sometimes it feels like the DVD is made for a coach, a teacher or someone who can twirl already. I suggest a slower and more detailed explanation for novice twirlers or children. Otherwise, it's fine.
