Amanda Estilo

Ladies' Styling

Level: Advanced

Style: NY

Content: Ladies' styling.

General Comment:When it comes to ladies’ styling, it is hard to get much better than Amanda and this DVD does her justice. Most would agree that the difference between commoners and good dancers is the ability to execute certain difficult passages and the difference between good and top dancers is to make such challenges look easy and natural. If we agree on this definition, then Amanda surely belongs to the top of the top because what she makes look natural is not only physically challenging, but also often stylistically flamboyant and yet she manages not to make it look so. All the material on display looks simply to ‘belong’ to her, with the mix of elegance and feline strength which made her internationally renowned and admired.

This DVD is for everyone to admire but maybe for fewer to aspire to, unless you are prepared to face reality and possible defeat. The material presented is difficult, requires flexibility, strength, agility and exuberance; plus, unless you are a performer, it may require a fairly charismatic personality to employ it on the dance floor and get away with it. If you are one such lady, this DVD is gold. If not, I believe there is no shame in admiring and not emulating and you may still like to see how beautiful salsa can be in the hands of a master.
