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!
