Review

This DVD made learning Salsa not only painless but fun and before long, my partner and I were actually moving through the steps and, better yet, we actually KNEW what we were doing. We looked like the dancers on the DVD, if only a "touch" less professional (okay, a lot less professional but it WAS our first time). Now we're working our way through the DVDs, Learn to Dance Salsa 2 and Learn to Dance Salsa 3 and I can actually say that we are getting better and better all the time. Plus, it is a lot of fun to practice!

What makes this DVD a standout? The instructors start out by explaining the basics of Salsa so that once you work into the actual dance movements, you have some idea of what Salsa actually is and where it fits in the dance spectrum. You aren't just mimicking steps but actually expressing a certain mood and feeling. That is a major plus right there. If you are going to Salsa, you want to create a total effect, not look like a robot going through the motions.

The instruction itself is very easy to follow, with both full-length and close-up shots of the dancers' feet, going at a very easy, step by step pace at first and gradually working up to a brisker tempo. We found ourselves smiling from start to finish, amazed at how much fun this was. Be forewarned, however- depending on your partner, you may be compelled to take a few romantic interludes as Salsa can be amazingly sexy and just moving together in rhythmic harmony while practicing the moves that lead one's thoughts to further romance...but that's another plus, to my way of thinking (think of it as a free bonus, if you will). --K.

First, a confession - I've always been a little scared to try anything other than the usual basic dances moves, nothing the least bit noticable. I just wanted to be able to get out on the dance floor and not make a fool out of myself.

So let's just say I was a little...wary...of trying to learn Salsa, a type of dance which I think of as incredibly romantic and sexy. I've always loved watching Salsa dancers and I've been envious of their grace, rhythm and style. I never for a monent, however, believed I could do anything remotely similar. But, DVD in hand (a gift), I was game to give it a try.

This DVD made learning Salsa not only painless but fun and before long, my partner and I were actually moving through the steps and, better yet, we actually KNEW what we were doing. We looked like the dancers on the DVD, if only a "touch" less professional (okay, a lot less professional but it WAS our first time). Now we're working our way through the DVDs, Learn to Dance Salsa 2 and Learn to Dance Salsa 3 and I can actually say that we are getting better and better all the time. Plus, it is a lot of fun to practice!

This review refers to "Learn To Dance Salsa: Beginners Vol 1"

Did you ever see the Seinfeld episode in which Elaine dances at a party, and everyone laughs at her moves(and rightly so)? That's me. I am a terrible dancer and what's more I have, or should say had no rhythm. I decided to give this a try anyway. I do work out quite a bit though, so I approached it the same way I do my video workouts.

First I viewed it all the way through, so I knew what to expect. Watching it I saw the instructors and the dancers, breaking down every move so easily, and repeating each of the basic steps and moves over with music, I thought "I could do this!" But it looked like I needed a partner, and dragged a reluctant friend into my living room. Turned out, we both actually learned the FUNdamentals(yes it was a blast), and thought we looked pretty good doing it as well. I actually got the rhythm down.

Patiently and slowly, the instructor and dancers, will take you through the very basic steps, for leaders and followers,then to music, and then putting the moves together for both dancers. There are a total of 35 scene selections depicting different steps, and patterns of the dance, and there are picture in picture close-up so you can just watch the way their feet move. You'll also get the terminolgy down as well. Also, if you hang around and sit through the credits, at the end you will find another bonus pattern to learn.

The music is great and so is the DVD. It's nice that you could always pause or pick any scene you want to try over again. Sound and picture are excellent. The DVD says it is 2 hours of comprehensive lessons, but the actual dance instruction is about an hour and 20 minutes.

I have to confess: I AM NOT A DANCER. No way, no how. 2 left feet and clumsy. So I view this DVD on Salsa dancing from the standpoint--can someone ELSE learn to dance as I am --hopeless--.

The DVD begins by explaining Salsa terms (isn't is weird to have a dance turn called "Kentucky" in Latin Dance? but there you are) This is important; should you go to a Latin dance class, you will be familiar with the words used by the instructors and not be saying "what?" (or "que?" ) all the time. There is a bit on the art of Salsa, the background. This impressed me; when I studied music, I found that knowing the history and background of the art form made for better expressiveness on my part--it makes you part of the artform, not a spectator.

This DVD series also differs in that it includes dance club etiquette and a bit on presentation--how to look hot and sexy while dancing. Is this silly? Nope. Dance is about performance. So looking caliente is really as important as not treading on one's partner's high heels. It makes a huge difference in how you are perceived as a dancer, so I give this DVD series a big thumbs up for including lessons on expression as well as simply going through the steps.

The instructional part of the video has both distance and close-up shots, including FEET (well, if anything could help me, seeing feet is about the only way you can get me to trip any kind of light fantastic.) I grade dance videos on varieties of shots included; while there are other series that include the same dance from different angles, I give this DVD a good mark for showing close vs distance.

The DVD series goes from "beginner" to "intermediate"--but this would be for amateurs. If you are going onto the professional performance circuit, you are going to need personalized instruction. But for couples who want to dance on weekends, this makes a great addition to the home library.

Summary: nice series, lots of info. Fun for couples.
