Coming into this DVD, dancers are expected to have a firm grasp of Salsa dancing fundamentals, namely that they have all the basic steps, patterns, turns and shines in existence down pat. With that notion in mind, instructors Evan Margolin and Moira Denike forge ahead with more complex dance moves. In this DVD, you'll learn the hook step and a number of variations for it as well as cross-hand holds, a variety of leads, plus the turns just keep on coming. Expect instruction in the hammerlock, reverse hammerlock, cross-body, hook-step and hand-over patterns as well.
There are a couple things that are important to note, especially for those of you who've gone through the previous DVDs in the series and are now interested in this one: (1) The crutches available in the previous DVD are no more-the most noticeable being that the insets with close-ups on moves, a signature feature in all three beginner DVDs, are excluded. (2) The pace of instruction is faster. I'd say a medium-high pace. By this time, it's expected that you are accustomed to counts, terminology and picking up patterns with less repetition of instruction.
Because of the faster pace and more complex moves, you will have to be more patient and allow yourself more time to perfect dance moves. Before you move on to the second intermediate DVD, I recommend you take a moment to watch some of the special features on the DVD, particularly the section on etiquette. The tips provided will help to really hone your dance skills-from how to adjust for dancing with different partners to how to "stay in your dance space" while you're trying out your new skills at the hottest Salsa club in town.
The hook step, hook step variations. Hammerlock and reverse hammerlock. Hand-over patterns, leads, and turns. It's all included on this 4th DVD in the Learn to Dance Salsa series. And guess what guys and gals. You'll be doing them all without assistive devices. No close-up shots to give you an ant's eye view of move. No 64-counts worth of repetition of moves. No humdrum pace to allow you to have time to work through moves slowly.
This DVD is undoubtedly for more experienced dancers. Particularly those who know how to Salsa but are looking to polish the moves they know and learn how to better incorporate different patterns into their routines. Dancers not quite at this skill level may want to consider a previous DVD in the SalsaCrazy series.
