When you're ready, you'll learn & test your skills with several hot moves like cross-body leads, underarm turns, & reverses that you can use with anyone & take to the floor immediately. Plus, you'll have a full soundtrack of great Salsa music playing through the entire lesson that doubles as a practice tool each time you use the DVD afterwards - just turn it on and practice your Salsa dancing until you're ready to go out.

"After intensive research and many attempts to find a true Salsa Dance lesson video, I finally found the perfect guide for salsa beginners. Shawn and Joanna’s “Salsa 101” is different from the other dance instruction videos I've tried because its extraordinarily fascinating, fun and entertaining. If you have ever tried taking dance lessons, I can share with you the way my body feels afterwards, personally, my legs feel as limp as spaghetti noodles, every muscle in my body twitches making it difficult to even lift my arms. Now, the difference when I tried Shawn’s “Salsa 101” is that it makes learning how to dance fun, maintaining a steady pace that is easy to follow and making it intriguing to see what’s coming next. Shawn and Joanna make it seem so uncomplicated to learn how to Salsa, going from simple steps to an exclusive style using creative tips, that will help you master the beat of the music and have you dancing in no time. I highly recommend “Salsa 101” to anybody like me that consider themselves to have two left feet and find dancing salsa very difficult, but fascinating. Thank you Shawn T. for creating such an amazing instructional video, because now thanks to you I can move to the beat of Salsa and be a leader on the dance floor, keeping always in mind that “Guys always get what’s left!”

Salsa 101 (Shawn Trautman Instruction)
"Wow! I didn't even need a partner"
"I finally convinced my husband that we could try some dance lessons. Reviews on other Shawn Trautman products pointed me to this DVD, and I AM SO GLAD! I didn't even wait for my husband to try this one - I had no rhythm, so I figured I could use a little extra practice. I did the entire DVD by myself while my husband was at work and it was great - I got some good exercise in while my feet and legs adjusted to the steps and moving when they were supposed to. I then did it with my husband and we had a blast - much less frustrating for us b/c I'd already run through the steps. I may incorporate some of these 101 DVDs into my fitness routine.

Over the years, I've taken a lot of Salsa dance lessons and have had my share of frustrations (language barriers, poor instruction, lots of spins before basics, instructor variations, etc.). I've taken from Salsa instructors around the world as well as from many local instructors and through other Salsa videos as a way of auditing their classes while studying teaching methods. One thing's for sure, Salsa's a contagious dance that's just downright fun, but it's sure hard to find good instruction!
|One thing's for sure, Salsa's a contagious dance that's just downright fun...
I'm one of those guys that just couldn't get his hips moving the right way. I later learned it was because I was trying to use my hips rather than my knees... why's this important? There are many Salsa instructors out there that say "if you're not dancing through your knees, you're not doing the Salsa." That's a load of crap! I danced it for years without using the "right" part of my body and I had a blast. Was it 'technically' correct? Apparently not. Did I have fun with it? Absolutely! Did any of the ladies ever complain while I was out dancing? No way. My take on Salsa is that some of the advanced styling pieces will come naturally to some folks and some won't, but the fundamentals behind the dance itself including the rhythm, basics, lead and following aspects, and turns will be the same regardless. The styling is a learned skill and doesn't happen overnight for everyone. Not knowing all the styling pieces doesn't stop you from dancing and having fun and I'm here to say they can be learned on your own time when you're ready.
That's why we focus on getting you dancing quickly in this how to Salsa DVD. Understanding the dance and having something to do while you learn the more advanced styling pieces allows you to not give up on yourself after the first time it doesn't work for you. You can be yourself and have fun with this great dance in just a matter of minutes regardless of your ethnicity. I love Salsa music (though I can't understand most of it) and really enjoy the culture. Salsa's fun, upbeat, catchy and everyone should know how to do it!
