Miami style turns quick and easy
firstname.lastname@example.org | Sweden | 03/04/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)
"* Teaches miami style turnpatterns, se below
* The patterns are shown in a straight forward way and are easy to watch and understand
* There are not a lot of details about leading and following or other technique
* The counting of steps is 123 456 with no mentioning of the structure of the music. This could be confusing if you are used to counting 1234 5678 with steps on 123 567. No great disadvantage though - you soon get a hang of this way of counting
* You can't read which turns are on the DVD on the box. This is a disadvantage. Of course you can write out the list from the homepage
* The menu system when using a DVDplayer-remote is a bit complicated. You have to press a lot on the arrows on your remote if you want to select among the different turns. On your computer it is a lot easier

Great DVD FIVE STARS

(4 out of 5 stars)
"This DVD continues the tradition of their other Quick and Dirty Guides to Salsa of excellence. If you want to work on your advanced salsa, specifically Rueda moves, this will complete your collection. I just hope they put out more DVD's, like an Advanced, Volume 2 or something. Also, DigiFilm is very responsive to deal with if you have a problem.
Fancy Footwork and Fire in the Soul
Alejandra Vernon | Long Beach, California | 04/06/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is a fabulous DVD for those who are already good salsa dancers, but want to expand their repertoire, brush up on their footwork, and learn the latest Cuban Salsa moves. We get a myriad of great combinations demonstrated by the very attractive pair of Gigi and Pedro, and the routines are viewable from 3 angles (front, high, and rear); you also have the option of choosing which of the many lessons you want to watch, in this programmable DVD. Digifilm has revolutionized the instruction DVD genre with the options it gives its audience, and the options also give the DVD added interest, and keep the lessons fresh and interesting.
Gigi is the primary instructor, and her explanations are clear and understandable, but the real treat is at the end, when Gigi and Pedro dance full out to music and dazzle us with their fancy footwork and sleek, graceful movements. The ambiance of the setting is also marvelous: A huge room, with gleaming parquet floors, a sparkling chandelier, and a few elegant furnishings, including a luxurious tapestry adorning one wall, with 2 doors leading out to a lush exterior. It all has an "old world" atmosphere that adds to the enjoyment of learning from Gigi and Pedro, who contrast this serene setting with their youth and exuberance. The music is also good, featuring Aris Martinez with "Ni Tiguere Gallo Ni Paraguayo." Excellent production values, expert instruction, as well as the many ways you can program this DVD to suit your needs and tastes, make these lessons for advanced Salsa dancers one not to miss!
A Nice Multi-Angle Cuban Salsa DVD
Mr. G. A. Mathieson | 03/20/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This DVD follows the same format as the previous dvds in the
series. I like the multi angle feature, and the moves are explained
in a clear concise manner. If you already have the previous two
dvds, you will already be familiar with the format. This one
contains another 28 moves."
