Product Description

A Salsa Dancer's Dream Four Best-Selling Award-Winning Salsa DVDs

The success of The Quick & Dirty Guides to Salsa sparked a dance DVD revolution. Packed with 92 lessons, this is the first and only multi-angle series on Salsa.

From the very basics to super advanced, from Salsa partner dancing to Salsa Team dancing, this four-DVD-Box set contains it all. The multi-angle aspect of this DVD sets it apart from the rest of the crowd. Shot with three cameras simultaneously, you can watch the moves from three angles. These Salsa DVDs make learning a pleasure. You will wonder how you did without multi-angles. If you want to learn Salsa quick and dirty, then this might be the series for you.

I'll have to be honest when I say I've always objected to instructional DVD's, of any kind. Why sit at home in front of your tv, often by yourself, to learn someting, you can learn in real life. The real world is more exciting, more fun and as I formerly thought, more efficient.
Now the day I decided I wanted to learn Salsa, I looked for the best Salsa clubs in town and went there twice that week, just to find out I really wasn't gonna be able to dance like this. I couldn't seem to find the logic and basics of this dance, which made it quite impossible to lead a woman.
So I gave in and got my very first instructional DVD and it was amazing. A lot cheaper than taking classes from beginner to advanced, very exciting since I did it together with my new girlfriend and after an hour I understood the logic and basics to Salsa completely.
The Quick and Dirty Guide to SALSA, is clear, efficient, covers about anything you need to know (I've asked an expert) and with the 3 different view angles defiinately the best purchase I've made in the last few years!

This DVD set is amazing! It can pretty much take you from two left feet to actually feeling confident on the dance floor. The quality is better than any other instructional video I have watched (which led to a bunch of Telly awards). The instructor is very clear and concise with some pep to go with it. Obviously nothing is a complete substitution for learning on the dance floor but practicing with this DVD made it so much easier. I highly recommend it to anybody who wants to learn or just sharpen their skills.

The multi-angle function is great - being able to switch between different angles during viewing is just brilliant. Gigi's instruction is nice and clear, Pedro complements her by jumping in and adding his 2 cents' worth from the leader's perspective. This is a very polished production as far as salsa DVDs are concerned, despite a few hiccups here and there (sometimes the cuts can be quite noticeable).

Glitches:

First off, the hyperlink [...] highlighted in the menu is a dead link. What a blooper.

Secondly, Gigi likes to call the moves - now, while this is fine for rueda it does not work for social dancing. Compounding to the problem is the fact that there is little mention about leading, which is a key aspect of salsa partnerwork.

Thirdly - and this is a MAJOR omission - the DVD makes absolutely NO MENTION of what type of salsa it is teaching, which is incredibly silly. LA/NY slot-style dancers won't like the feeling of being conned into buying this DVD.

One small gripe - Gigi's heels keep making that loud CLACK! CLACK! CLACK! sound all throughout the 3 DVDs. It becomes annoying after a while until you force yourself to ignore it.

The multi-angle feature and the fun no-nonsense style of this DVD makes it the best buy of all similar products. This DVD is very clear to follow. Clear pictures, clear sound and you can see it from 3 different angles. i have not seen it anywhere else. The music is also great.

Excellent product. It's not easy to create danse DVDs which are instructive and a pleasure to watch, this one is great.
Delivered very quickly internationally.
Thanks.
