Judge David Johnson wowed them at the New Hampshire VFW with his hot Latino dance moves.
Antonio Banderas, eat your heart out.
I'm not going to waste your time. If you want to learn how to dance the salsa in the comfort of your own home, then this series is probably your best bet. The beginner's course for Learn to Dance Salsa runs through a three-disc set, each featuring nearly two hours of salsa goodness.
Look, I am an awful dancer. I've got the coordination of a drunken heroin addict out there on the club floor. It took much practice just to stumble around like a fool with my wife at our wedding reception.
But this series proved to be easy to follow, engaging, and practical. I'll run down the reasons why I think it works well as an instructional video.
The instructor loves his salsa and isn't afraid to show it.
The camera angles are convenient.
The lessons are detailed and paced well.
Great chapter selection.
Hot female dance partner.
In addition, each disc comes with some fun little bonus features. All three discs include outtakes, and "dance etiquette." Of course, some of these etiquette tips are fairly obvious, like "always wear deodorant." A "History of Salsa" feature is also included.
For those looking to get into the salsa world, this volume will provide you with the foundational techniques to get your groove on. There's really nothing I can say to disparage it; Learn to Dance Salsa does what it set out to do, and does it well.
