Excellent introduction for beginning ballroom dancers

"Beginning ballroom dancers are typically introduced to 6 dances: Swing, Tango, Waltz, Rhumba, Foxtrot and Cha Cha. When starting to go to ballroom dance parties, however, they have to leave the floor when Mambo/Salsa music is played. This DVD shows exactly how fundamental patterns such as crossover break or open break we learn in Rhumba or Cha Cha can be applied to Mambo/Salsa, so that we can start dancing at parties immediately. Even those who do not know these patterns well can learn easily because they are repeated enough times. This DVD also includes "dirty dancing" (but tasteful) patterns for fun. Vicki Regan's You Can Dance! series is good value."

"I can only say that this was a Rookie mistake on my part. I bought this DVD and all I can say is dont waste your money. It has essentially one turn pattern and 2 insignificant steps besides the BASIC step. At this rate you would need twenty DVD's with this level of instruction to be of any value. You can learn as much for free by looking at some of the preview samples that other Instructional Videos Providers have. If you want some content and value for your money get the RED HOT SALSA series by Ron & Bethana Rosario. I did. Hope this helps others avoid the same mistake I made."

"I viewed several dance DVD's of 3 different artists from our public library. Vicki's videos were the only ones that take you through the process at a pace that truly allows you to learn, and enjoy it. That is why we decided to buy. After two viewings, we are ready to go! When our daughters asked for gift ideas for our upcoming anniversary, we easily said, "More of her dance DVD's please!""
