Strictly Salsa

Men Styling

Level: Int-Adv

Style: On 1

Content: Styling.

General Comment: This is a cleverly produced DVD which contains a potpourri of ideas and techniques for men to ‘look better’ on the dance floor. There are not many of these DVDs around, so if you guys have felt so far discriminated against, thank Strictly Salsa for taking a stand.

This potpourri includes spinning technique, decorations to intersperse in between basic elements of LA/NY salsa (decorations on Cross Body leads and simple turns) and some shines. Except for the shines, all other tips are described in the context of partner dancing, which I believe makes this DVD useful. You also have 2 role models to aspire to, since Strictly Salsa provide both the ‘funny’ and the ‘cool’ guy, so you can learn to wear the personality suited to your mood on the night.

Both dancers are technically good and explain well. The filming is also well done since you can see all details from all required angles and the camera often zooms in for close ups.

My only perplexity is the choice of the content; the shines are quite standard, some even ancient, and some of the decorations a bit choreographed, but this is a matter of personal taste, and you may find them pleasing.

One more worthwhile Australian contribution to international salsa
