Must Have Basic Flamenco

"I have always loved watching Flamenco! Now I'm learning it! I have been stomping, snapping and twirling around the house for two days now! I love that the background is white, completely, so that you can see all of her movement. She teaches a beautiful, passionate dance in a manner that will give you confidence to start dancing right away. Her mantons (shawls) are some of the most beautiful I have seen! If you have always wanted to Flamenco, get this DVD and get started!"
Good, could be better

"After learning the "Gypsy Tangos" choreography on one of Puela Lunaris' other DVDs, I was really looking forward to learning one of her Campanilleros choreographies, especially the first one. While the choreography itself is good, trying to learn it is more difficult in this DVD than the other one. The reason is 3-fold: 1) her fluid sense of timing is even more apparent in this DVD than the other. At one point, she even says the music is in 3/4 time when it is not. The time actually switches between 12/8 and 3/4, and the section where she makes that statement actually has a feel of 4 beats per measure rather than 3. What Lunaris does well is hit the accents at the end of the musical phrases, but her timing within each phrase is difficult to pin down. 2) The view of the instruction & performance is from the front only. While the white background is nice, it is difficult to watch and do simultaneously. A mirror image or view from the rear would be helpful. 3) There is no "performance" version of the choreography (as there is on her "Gypsy Tangos" DVD), so you only have one complete dance to study (and as I said, her timing on that is "iffy" at best). On the other hand, the moves are interesting and flow nicely from one to the other (if you can get past the timing issue), the price is great, and you can download the music for just $1."
Amateurish & Defective

"I ordered two DVDs by this dancer. One locked up entirely so that it could not be played. The other played a bit but skipped and froze as well. Very poor quality DVDs and amateurish content. A waste of money!"
