SalsaCrazy.com is one of the world's premier salsa dancing websites. Founded in 1996, SalsaCrazy.com was born of a passion to dance, and a desire to show others how fantastic salsa dancing can be. As our first instructor told us, "It will change your life".

We've created a series of high quality DVD's to showcase how easy and fun salsa dancing can be! It's a dance that can be enjoyed by everyone, with fantastic music, a rich history, and an unbeatable, intoxicating, rhythm.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but boring September 25, 2005
I have been taking Salsa lessons for about 6 months now. You can say I am an intermediate level, this DVD did not add much to my previous experience in dancing. The instructor was not very amusing and encouraging and as a lady I was looking for more styling on the woman's part. On the other hand the DVD quality is very good although the music in the background was not clear cause the instructor's voice was too noisy, louder than the music it self. The only good part of the DVD is that the steps are explained in a very detailed manner which is good for the people who have never learned the combinations tought in this DVD before. But for me it did not add much to my experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars go 4 it October 25, 2005
By ritu
Thought I'd tell people about this miracle DVD. In just 3 months I've advanced myself from volume 1 to 3.Had I been taking regular classes I'd still be slogging at the basics, spending money profusely. It's no regret about buying this DVD. The instructions are meticulously explained and you'll find no difficulty in learning each and every step. I recommended this DVD to few of my closest friends and they were also quite pleased and happy with it. We had a party the other day and the theme was' Latino' and we left everyone stunned by showing our sexy moves. Now what people don't know is that we learnt each and every step at home, now that's something difficult to swallow. But thanks to this wonderful DVD...few weeks down the line we'd be dancing like real professionals

5.0 out of 5 stars Salsa. She likes! May 10, 2006
By Jules
Salsa Crazy DVD is about putting what you've learned in the first two DVDs to use and having fun with it. You'll practice quite a few turns and crossovers and other moves to make Salsa dancing more than a six-count step. Best of all, both men and women can learn what each of them should be doing so they can do it together. It's official. I have learned to Salsa and I like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just dancing, moving in harmony. December 7, 2005
The first DVD in the Learn to Dance Salsa series was all about getting the footwork down with some attention to hip and arm movements. The second focused on turning patterns and the importance of hand, arm and palm placement for directing / being directed on the dance floor. Now, during the third DVD in the SalaCrazy Learn to Dance Salsa series, it's all about the partners; more specifically, showing dance partners how to dance with one another and to do it in sync so that the dance is both energetic and graceful.

Some of the moves dancers using this DVD will learn include the cross-body lead and the cape plus how to incorporate each of those basic Salsa moves with various turns and patterns. And while a majority of this DVD is focused on how to do moves with a partner, there is a pause for some instruction on solo action for times when you and your partner have let go of one another. Footwork shines, to be exact. Once you learn those, they will be another technique that you can insert into your patterns to really make the Salsa dance moves your own.

Some of the features that carry over from the previous DVDs in the SalsaCrazy series include the signature SalsaCrazy close-up view of dance moves and clear, step-by-step instructions. Hosts Evan Margolin and Moira Denike also continue to provide tips for both leaders (men) and followers (women) so that the complex patterns being taught can be executed properly. Dance etiquette lessons are also included as a bonus feature on the DVD.

Overall, I would say that Learn to Dance: Beginners Volume 3 is definitely worth picking up if interested in learning to Salsa dance. Keep in mind though, volume three is designed for dancers who already have a working dancing knowledge of Salsa dancing. If that's not you, you may want to go ahead and start with one or both of the first two SalsaCrazy Learn to Dance Salsa Beginners DVDs. I've also written reviews for those.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expert Salsa Instruction, Vol. 3 November 5, 2005
As instructor Evan Margolis says in his introduction to this Salsa Crazy DVD, it's a "wild, wild ride." There is much more complexity and speed compared to Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, and yet with Evan's clear and articulate way of explaining the footwork, arm movements, and turns, it is all easy to learn. In approximately one hour and 35 minutes, Evan teaches us the "Cross Body Lead" and its many variations, "The Cape," and my favorite, "The Shines," where each dancer can take solo patterns and interpret the rhythm as they choose. There is also Salsa Crazy's "Signature Move," and it's terrific. Evan talks as well of the "3 Crucial Concepts." 1, your partner, 2, the music, and 3, "connection," which he so cleverly demonstrates using a rubber band. The Salsa instruction is very easy to see, and there is an inset in the lower left corner, that highlights the movements.

Evan's partner is Moira Denike, who looks stunning and is a joy to watch, and the music, by Benny Velarde y Super Combo, is excellent. The DVD extras are Evan's "Dance and Club Etiquette" tips, which in this volume are about "Floor Craft," the skill of dancing without bumping into others, and much more; there are also some very funny "Outtakes." As a former dancer, I greatly admire Evan's teaching style. He is a marvelous dancer and a superb instructor, without the slightest trace of the "ego" getting in the way, and Salsa is not only fun, but it's a great way to exercise, as well as socialize.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended!!!! January 11, 2006
By sarah j
Hi everyone! I'm Sarah and I would like to tell everyone about this amazing DVD. I know you'd be thinking" What's so great about this DVD?"...true there are so many DVD's available that promise you this and that and in the end it's a big disappointment. You're not gonna regret getting one for yourself. I was a bit hesitant on buying it but once I watched the video...I went berserk started dancing with the rhythm, the counts, following the instructors and couldn't help myself from falling in love with salsa. Everything is so much in detail and nothing is boring. I would rate this DVD 10/10. Anyone interested in salsa...I recommend this DVD.
