Product Description

The Most Densely Packed, Award Winning Salsa DVD on the Market
Winner of Four Telly Awards and An Aegis Award

This no-nonsense follow-up to the top selling Salsa DVD, The Quick and Dirty Guide to Salsa takes off right where the first one left off. Organised in dictionary form with revolutionary multiple camera angles and clear, easy-to-follow directions, you won't find this level of Salsa instruction anywhere else. Winning five awards for education, learning, hobby and how-to instructional, The Quick & Dirty Guide to Salsa gives the highest quality of Salsa instructions.

Intermediate students will find this a generous compilation of 31 moves that would normally take months of expensive classes to cover. Being students of Salsa ourselves, we know that you will love this DVD. And we'll let you in on a little-kept secret of the Salsa dancing world. Remember that you were cautioned to be good, because one distinct side effect of being a great dancer is that people tend to feel a rather strong attraction to you. Own these 31 stunning moves, and become a great Salsa dancer the quick and dirty way.

As a Salsa reference and instructional tool, nothing compares to this award winning DVD.

If you liked the Part I and found it useful, you should by all means get this DVD. All the excellent qualities of Part I, such as clear presentation, pleasant video and sound quality and multi-angle shots, can be found here except there is a lot more. It is jammed and packed with moves and you'll be spending a lot of time mastering them. Congratulations to the makers of this DVD for a job very well done; I don't know how they plan to top this one in their Advanced DVD.

However, there are some caveats that buyers should be aware. For beginners and even intermediate salsa dancers, this DVD may be difficult to swallow without buying the Part I DVD first. A big reason for this is that the style of salsa taught here is rather unique; I would almost say that it is new, except it really isn't new either. I'm tempted to call this a sixth style of salsa; others being LA style, NY style, Cuban style, Cumbria style, and Casino Rueda. The first four (LA, NY, Cuban, Cumbria) are for two people, while Casino Rueda is a synchronized dance where many couples dance together in a circle. Quick and Dirty salsa (which is apparently referred to as Cuban Miami style) is essentially Casino Rueda modified for couples. In fact, this DVD would work fairly well if you are interested in learning Casino Rueda; this video covers a large number of intermediate and advanced Rueda routines (although you do need to make some minor modifications). Thanks in part to this and its companion DVD, the Cuban Miami style is getting increasing attention elsewhere (even if it is just a rumor in many places).

So what does this all mean? Once you and your partner master the lessons in this DVD, you will look fantastic. However, you likely will have difficulty using the lessons here to dance with other people in your area initially. But then again, I also think it could be good to be a trend-setter, don't you think?

5.0 out of 5 stars Must buy Salsa dvd for 2005 February 25, 2005
This dvd is a follow on from the World's top selling salsa dvd of 2004.

This dvd introduces the intermediate techniques of Miami Cuban Salsa dancing.

This dvd starts off straight into the techniques as it is assumed you have brought the first dvd.

This dvd is packed full of moves.

This dvd again uses the three angle view that the first Dirty Salsa dvd used. You can watch the dvd from the front, above, back angles of all the techniques.

The first Dirty Salsa dvd was hailed as a breakthrough in learning dance by dvd in 2004 for this ability.

This second dvd is a great way to learn how to dance Salsa.

It's our first must buy for 2005.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dirty Salsa Gets EVEN HOTTER for summer! May 16, 2005
This DVD is an excellent follow up to the first salsa dvd. After learning all the moves and wowing everyone at my local salsa club, I was excited to see that a new video was released! Just in time for summer. And once again with the very mesmerizing instructor Gigi! This DVD has an amazing energy flow that will inspire you to learn more complicated and eye popping moves that will fool people into thinking you spent TONS OF MONEY on your very own salsa instructor. Funny thing is purchasing this Salsa DVD is even better and very affordable for all! Perfecting my moves with Gigi and Pedro will last me a lifetime of salsa club dancing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Much More than an Instruction Video March 26, 2005
As much as the Part I of this extraordinary DIGIFILM series impressed, this Part II is so fine that it goes beyond just being the excellent way to learn Salsa. This combination of attractive instructors, easy to understand movement demonstrations, and spicy music is the best of its kind.

But even more impressive than that is the giant leap forward in the three-angle camera work technology this disc represents. DIGIFIM is in the frontrunners category of maximizing the viability of filmed interaction. This DVD is so fine that it merits watching it just for the entertainment of the technology. It is almost like the superb salsa instructions by Gigi and by Pedro Curbelo are the bonus.

If you can't master Salsa with these two (Part I and II) DVDs, well...better look for another entertainment form! Grady Harp, March 05

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed With Hot Moves April 3, 2005
By Carlito
This DVD is awesome. If you are a decent Salsa dancer, this DVD is the resource that you always wanted. It might take you months to master all the moves, but it won't cost you thousands of dollars that you will have to spend otherwise in classes like a few of us has done. It's packed with hot Cuban moves that will make any good leader drool. The followers love it when you execute the complex and traditional turns on this DVD. My girlfriend had a smile on her face all evening when I clumsily tried the turn "Beso" with her. Beso means Kiss.

Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning Salsa? A must have DVD! March 27, 2005
By Debo
I am a regular user of this DVD.
To begin with, this DVD is a great transition from Part 1. Just when you begin to get comfortable with the basic steps and want to move ahead, here comes Part 2 with a wealth of new moves, steps, turns and taps. I love the 'tap' and I think it's the best introduction in Part 2. It just adds so much more to every step and turn.

The overall faster pace of this DVD is also appropriate. You don't really want to take that much time over every step, now that you are in the intermediate level!

I find the instructions, moves and steps depicted in a very explicit and vivid style, so much so that even if you just watch the lessons, you seem to remember the steps and the sequences very well. (I guess it's also the multi-angle!).

This salsa DVD part 2 is just so good and I hope the best is yet to come with Part 3!
Digifilm has a way of breaking every other as well as its own record with each new DVD it releases.
