United States of America (Press Release
) October 2, 2007 -- Salsa Instructional Video
Maybe you find yourself feeling a little too shy to take that first
salsa lesson. Or, you’ve got such a busy schedule that you can’t even imagine carving out enough free time to
get to a class. Whatever your reason may be, have no fear, because nowadays it’s incredibly easy to find a good salsa
instructional video. Begin learning the basics or fine-tuning your existing dance skills in the comfort and privacy of your
very own home.
The market for salsa videos and DVDs has grown tremendously in recent years, and covers the major styles:
Cuban, New York, Los Angeles and Mixed/Fusion. Salsa instructional videos range in skill level, covering the spectrum from
novice to advanced, so there is something available for everyone. These variations do mean, however, that you need to read
the back of each video carefully to make sure you purchase one that is appropriate to your skill level and dancing desires.
For the most part the videos will use the same basic structures, utilizing step-by-step instruction and demonstration to teach
the dance. They will diverge on the skill level of the steps they teach you, the movements growing more complex as you progress
to higher levels. Beginner videos teach you the basic elements of the salsa, focusing on footwork, posture and other fundamental
concepts. Progressing through intermediate and advanced lessons, you will hone in on technique and then learn the little “extras”
that can make a salsa flashy: Lifts, tricks, dips and other complex movements.
Another option in the salsa instructional
video market takes salsa and fitness to a different level: Salsa Aerobics. Salsa Aerobics and Latin exercise videos actually
combine elements of the dance with other workout techniques. The overall goal of these tapes is health and fitness, but all
of the exercises are based on the spicy movements of the salsa. Of course, the workout is set to hot salsa music to maintain
a lively pace. This style of salsa instructional video also offers something for every skill level. For those who have never
taken salsa lessons, the video is a chance to start experiencing this saucy, fun method of dancing. It also is a great alternative
to the average workout for people who are practiced salsa dancers.
A salsa instructional video is a fantastic way to start
emerging yourself in the sizzling world of salsa. When you feel ready though, check out a 6 hour salsa boot camp at LearnSalsa.com!
