This really helped refine my salsa skills. The teachers were fun to watch, the video production was so clear and good, and it really taught me how to salsa dance. I highly recommend it for new comers and people who want a review and learn more technique.

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 and it makes no attempt to hide the fact it is shot on video).

Glitches: First off, the hyperlink http://www.dirtysalsa.com 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-style dancers wouldn’t like the feeling of being conned into buying this DVD.

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.

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!
