Merengue is a lively yet smooth social dance. It is beautiful to watch and exhilarating to do on a crowded dance floor. Would you like to learn Merengue? If so, you will want to check out SalsaCrazy’s Learn To Dance: Merengue (Beginning and Intermediate).
Disclosure: I received a review copy of Learn To Dance: Merengue (Beginning and Intermediate) from the producer SalsaCrazy (AKA DanceCrazy.com). I have reviewed several other Dance and workout DVDs from this same producer.
First, I will say that the quality of instruction is excellent. Alison Hurwitz and Jesus Ortiz do a good jub in breaking down the technique and the music. This is true of all the SalsaCrazy and DanceCrazy instructional DVDs I have reviewed. The instruction includes basic technique, several moves and combinations, rhythm and music, dance etiquette and a little cultural information. This DVD includes a lot of content.
I have heard Merengue described as a “gateway” Latin dance as the footwork can be simple compared to some other styles of Latin dance. I think if you learn the moves in this instructional DVD and gain a sense of the music, you could go to a club and have a great time socially dancing Merengue. Not only will you have a great time, you will look great doing it. I have said this about other instructional DVDs from SalsaCrazy because it is true.
The great thing about a DVD is that you can review and practice as much as you want. I don’t consider it a substitute for a live class, but sometimes a class isn’t practical or available locally. Also, sometimes a DVD is a good supplement to live classes.
I highly recommend this for anyone wanting beginner-to-intermediate Merengue instruction at home. I also recommend it as a supplement or practice companion to live classes.
