This video demystifies salsa. Salsa, though fundamentally a rather easy dance, is a bear to learn because everybody teaches it differently. In addition, many different styles exist. We've studied a bunch of different teaching styles and step styles and think we've boiled it down to the "universals." This video shows 1) the basic steps you will need, 2) how to count the steps, 3) how to count the music, and 4) how to dance to the music for "Salsa on 1," "Salsa on 2," and "Salsa on 3." In addition, it goes on to show over thirty leadable figures for social dancing, including easy shine figures. This video is fully suitable for the complete beginner. It begins with the easy "follow the leader" teaching method. This video goes into detail on how to count salsa music to enable understanding "Salsa on 1" versus "Salsa on 3," etc. This video also demystifies teaching discrepancies you may have encountered by explaining the most common teaching variations. This video covers the most essential "foundation" moves of salsa. There is enough material here to develop an entire dance routine. Out of all the other salsa videos on the market we believe this is the best place to start.
