|Awesome DVDS!!! I have learned so much from your lessons. They are easy to follow and you guys more than anything make it really easy and fun. This is my first purchase on dance instructional videos and was worth every single dime spent on these DVDS!!! Love you BOTH!!! -- Salmorena|
|I am married to a Colombian woman. I am an American man that never really danced in my life. Naturally my wife and her family wanted me to dance at their parties and get togethers. For them it was natural. They would tell me just move and "feel" the music. Easier said then done. No matter how much you 'feel" the music if you don't know the steps, how can someone do the dance. This has been a debate with us for some time and she wishes I would take lessons so we could dance when we go out. well, Money for lessons, time for lessons and availability of competent instruction has held me back. Then I thought of a video to learn. The rest is history. Coming from a martial arts backround, I am familiar with learning footwork. The insruction on the dvd was great and I picked it up very quickly in my spare time without my wife knowing. Now I am waiting for the right time to surprise her. --- Michael D'Angona|
|Evan is an amazing teacher. His instructions are precise and easy to follow. He is hilarious and keeps you coming back for more. I'm addicted to salsa dancing thanks to these fun classes.|
|Started taking Latin Dance after visiting friends in Panama. Did some clubing there and Salsa looked like fun to do. In between dance lessons I practiced with the video. It lowered the overall cost of learning the dance to an acceptable level (bronze).|
|I never wanted to go Salsa dancing with my friends because all of them have so much experience. I've tried taking classes, but my schedule is so busy that I'm never able to keep to a strict schedule. Then I rented salsa dvd's. Though the instructors on the dvds were great dancers, their ability to teach others was lacking. Your Beginners dvd is absolutely the best. It is so easy to follow and fun that I find myself saying and moving to 123-567- all the time. I watch your the basic dance techniques every spare moment I have. Anyway, I'm hooked. Thank you for your dedication to teaching. You make learning to dance Salsa fun! |
My wife and I have been dancing and teaching dancing for many, many years. We have taken many dance lessons in our time and watched allot of instructional videos. The Salsa dance DVD's from SalsaCrazy.com is the best you will find anywhere anyplace. Each step or movement is explaimed so anyone can learn the step. They are the best your money can buy. |
| ||I loved your salsa DVD, it was so much fun to watch and I danced my way through the whole thing. What an easy way to learn!
For anyone wanting to learn salsa at home and feel more confident before venturing out into the night clubs, I'll give this a must buy recommendation.|
I've taken both dance studio and
"nightclub" salsa lessons and I feel that I've learned much more
(and learned faster) from the Salsa Crazy dvd's than from the "live"
lessons. The Salsa Crazy instructor does a great job of breaking
down each dance pattern in detail. My one big complaint when I took
the group lessons was they did not teach us enough of the "cool"
turns. Well, the Salsa Crazy dvd's definitely teach the cool turns
and a lot more. Also, I found after taking studio lessons, you end
up forgetting a lot of the stuff they taught you. That's not an
issue with the dvd's, all the lessons are available to review any
time. I bought all 5 Salsa Crazy instructional dvd's (3 beginner and
2 intermediate) and I highly recommend each one. I also bought a
couple of dvd's of another popular salsa instructional dvd series
(who will remain nameless). In my opinion the Salsa Crazy dvd's were
much better. This "other" dvd series went way too fast for beginner
level, and they did not break down the patterns in detail. They
"rapid-fire" taught one pattern after another expecting you to
somehow "get it". Sincerely, John K.
I've taken several Salsa classes
but after completing them, I always end up feeling like I didn't
learn anything. The instructors are always rushing through the
patterns, and you always find that there isn't enough time to
practice. Worse, since you're cramming too many moves in one
pattern, no one wants to dance with you on the dance floor cuz
you're always making mistakes. Not so after I got your
SalsaDanceDVDs. The DVDs give you just the right number of moves in
a pattern to be able to remember, and to execute flawlessly, all of
it. What's more, you can go back to the patterns as many times as
you want until you're really comfortable with it. With the ability
to learn on your own free time, you have all the time in the world
to do your practice at your own leisure. After I went through your
DVDs, my success rate on the dance floor has increased multiplefolds.
Thanks. -- Rick, Singapore
Salsa Dancing has given me more
confidence in my day to day life. When I first started out, I felt
all awkward and embarrassed, but not too long after, I picked up
steps here and there and have no trouble going out dancing (and
teaching others along the way). Aside from that, it has been so much
easier to meet girls through salsa dancing - it's such a huge
advantage that I wish I would've taken it up sooner. I'm so glad to
have started practicing at classes & clubs and practicing at home
watching DVD's. -- Eddie H.
I have seen many Salsa learning
DVD ,but your DVD is simply the best , and realy I advise anyone
wants to learn Salsa in a correct and accurate way , should buy your
series your way of teaching is simple ,easy and great. and I hope
one day I can meet you if you come to Toronto Canada. --
|I recently purchased
copies of your "Learn to Dance Salsa - Vol 1 Beginners" and
Dance Workout". I have never taken dance lessons before,
and have found these two DVD's amazingly helpful. The
Workout DVD makes "individual" learning of the basic steps
very simple, which, in turn, makes the "partner" lessons in
the Dance Salsa DVD easier and quicker to master. The
instructors are great, the sound and picture qualities are
very good, and the "picture-in-picture" feature makes
viewing both instructional and fun. I have only had the DVDs
for a couple of weeks and am anxious to continue along with
the series. Viva Salsacrazy! -- Dan Powers, Florida
I have recently started Latin,
done some Cha-Cha and Rumba, but also purchased the Salsa Crazy
Instructional DVD via internet and waited 10 days for it to arrive
here in Namibia.... We tried it and instantly could master the Salsa
Steps and we've worked through the Volume 1 in NO Time! It is
awesome, crystal clear end absolute brilliant, I'm ordering Volume
II and III immediately! I've got 10 people coming to my house
Fridays and all newcommers could master the first two steps within
half an hour! -- Gerhard

|Dear Evan, I have danced Salsa/Mambo for the past five (5) years. I've taken lesons from the top instructors in Los Angeles, and own three (3) instructional videos from other instructors.
I always felt unsure about my "next move", on the dance floor. I never really felt good and even worse I didn't feel like I looked "COOL" on the floor.
I purchased your entire collection of DVD's on line, the transaction was a breeze. Right now, I've been consentrating on the Intermediate Level Disc #2 for the last month or so. And Buddy, moves are just comming out of me on the floor. Doubles to the left, Doubles to the right, Head Loops, partner moves-a-plenty!!!
By the way, I now feel great, And...I look "Very Cool" on the floor. Which, for many us fellows, is the bottom line
Thanks so much!!!
The lighting could brought up just a bit. I like the lighter backgrounds for viewing ease.
|I HAVE YOUR BEGINNER'S TRIO COLLECTION. AND I LOVE ALL OF THEM, HOW YOU EXPLAIN EVERYTHING. I HAVE DIFFERENT KINDS OF SALSA DVDS AND YOURS IS THE BEST. I LOVE THEM!!|
-- Rick Bowman
| Dear Evan have enjoyed the beginners series vol 123. A big help for a new dancer such as mysel I am now starting to watch the intermiadte DVD continue to keep up the good work the dvd's are easy to follow and the instruction is great. One of the best investments I've made in a long time.|
I am a Puerto Rican grown man
and it has always been embarassing for me to know that I can't dance
salsa. I bought the beginners series 1 - 3 and I am starting to get
the basic rhythms. It has truly helped me and I am so eager to
finish tape 1 so that I can get to 2 and three. Because of this, I
practice about 3 times a week. Thank you for showing me what I've
been missing for so long. -- Rafael Quintero
|yes i am teaching dancing in miami and your salsa dvd are great .for me they very helpful.thank,s..let me know a soon you ave more,,am leaving for two months,so i will like before the end of june if possible ..thank,s..|
Salsa has definitely changed my
life and my attitude towards people and life in general. Not only
did have I loose 2 stone in weight, my body is trimmer and I am
fitter than I have been in years. Salsa has taken 10 years off my
age, and my health has improved tremenedouly. Salsa has also boosted
my confidence, enabling me to make lots of new friends, it makes me
feel good about myself. When I'm dancing I forget all my problems as
if I'm transported to another planet - problem free!! The downside
of Salsa has been that it has ruined my relationships with people
who don't understand the dance. They think you're out there to pull
all the time, which is not the case. The majority of salseros just
want to dance and enjoy themselves. DVDs have helped me mainly
improve my posture and styling, which is something that is difficult
to do whilst dancing with someone unless you have practised it
beforehand. I hope to continue dancing for as long as possible!!!
|LET ME START OUT BY SAYING THAT THIS VIDEO TOTALLY CHANGE MY LIFE. THE REASON I SAY THIS IS BECAUSE BEFORE LEARNING ABOUT THIS DVD, MY DANCING, SHALE WE SAY, WAS LAME. MOST OF THE TIMES THAT I WENT TO PARTY'S, I WAS ALWAYS TO SHY TO STEP ON THE DANCE FLOOR, I JUST DIDN'T WANT TO LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT JUST MOVING MY LEGS. SO ONE DAY I DECIDED TO FACE MY FEAR, AND LEARN TO SALSA DANCE. I JUST HAD ONE PROBLEM, I NEEDED A PARTNER. SO I ASK MY BEST FRIEND NYDIA, IF YOU WANTED TO LEARN WITH ME SHE SAID YES OF THE BAT. SHE ALSO STANK, ON THE DANCE FLOOR, I MEAN THAT IN A GOOD WAY, anyway. AS SOON AS I GOT A PARTNER, WE STARTED LEARNING TO SALSA DANCE. THIS DVD WAS WONDERFUL, I MEAN AWESOME, IT GAVE REALLY EASY STEPS ON WHAT TO DO AND WHAT NOT TO DO. THE GUY IN THE VIDEO WAS VERY ENTERTAINING AND FUNNY. I THINK THIS WAS PART OF WHAT MADE MY EXPERIENCE ENJOYABLE. IT TOOK US ABOUT 2-4 WEEKS TO GET ALL THE STEPS JUST RIGHT. BUT AS NYDIA AND I WENT TO A PARTY MY FRIEND AND HER FRIENDS COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT WE KNEW HOW TO DANCE, IN SO LITTLE TIME. EVEN THOUGH WE MADE A FEW MISTAKES THAT DID NOT STOP US FROM TAKING ON THE FLOOR. THIS HELP ME FACE MY FEAR ON THE FLOOR. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS VIDEO TO ANYONE WHO DOESN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT SALSA DANCE. I LOOK FORWARD ON GETTING VOL. 2 OF LEARN TO DANCE SALSA.
I HOPE THIS TESTIMONIAL HELP YOU GUY UNDERSTAND HOW ENJOYABLE THIS DVD WAS FOR ME, LOOKING FORWARD ON GETTING "BEGINNER SERIES: VOLUMES 2"
SINCERELY, ALEJANDRO R.|
My husband and I
have taken the beginning and intermediate salsa classes.
It's been a really really sexy, fun way to spend time
together. What a great way to get intimate with someone you
enjoy. Oh - and he tells me my "graduation gift" will be a
night on the town dancing. This is the same guy who started
out dreading classes because he said he wasn't any good. Now
he can actually dance and smile at the same time - and feels
confident enough to hit the clubs. That is what I call a
success story. -- Laurie Waters
HI Evan, I just want to thank
you for giving me back my confidence in dancing, i been longing to
learn to dance salsa for over a year and no idea how i can approach
someone who can teach me. i grew up in philippines and salsa is not
our national dance, it was hip-hop. i stumbled to like salsa when i
was browsing the cable channel and stop at latin channel , it was
then my desire become a benefit to health( talk about losing weight
at the same time enjoying yourself.) anyway, i search the internet
looking for a video instruction on which i can learn easily to dance
salsa and found your complete set and read some reviews about your
video and mostly they are positive. You know what, i did'nt buy your
review first from your website instead i went to amazon.com to look
for another reviews and sure enough you got good feedback from other
individual. your instruction video's, it bring back my confidence in
dancing instead of being on the sideline watching people enjoying
their dancing, now i can approach friend's to dance with me. i can
say your video is complete and cheap, compare to long hour to learn
this beautiful dance. the funny thing is, when people found out that
you know how to dance salsa especially women, oh man, the loved to
dance with you , you know what i mean?. Hey evan, thank for the
help. Nat Ps. Just in case if you can remember me , i met you at
cafe cocomo last may 2006 (found the club from you website too), i
'm the guy standing at the stair( 2nd floor) and approach you and
ask also about you partner in video on where she is, while waiting
for my friend,the filipino guy. Thanks
DVDs are a great learning tool for a begining salsa dancer.
Evan is very detailed in his explanation of each movement of
your hands and feets. It is a great investment that will
give you alot of confidence when you get on the dance floor
at a salsa club. Larry

|My wife and I are beginner salsa dancers.Although we have taken several leasons I've found the 3 beginner videos very helpful with concise,in-depth and easy to follow instruction.We're learning great moves and sequences and having a ball.|
|the dvd series is the best i have ever bought, it is better than the others cause it shows every step and really breaks it down. it also helps that evan is such a good teacher, he was born to teach.|
It had been 6 years since I last
danced salsa due to a knee injury. I got your DVD's to start getting
back into the swing of things. Practiced by myself but it all
started coming back. Then I went to a wedding recently. I was at a
table with a bunch of friends of the bride's mother and lo and
behold there was a single man there that loved to dance salsa! Well
we had a blast on the dance floor and I couldn't believe that I
remembered it all - he was surprised that I was able to follow him
with ease - of course, he couldn't be more surprised than me. So
thanks for bringing it all back. When my daughter comes home from
college, she wants to learn it and I will start her with your DVD's!
I purchased the Salsa Dvd series
two and three. Love the lessons and will purchase your next DVD. My
partner and I dedicate every Tuesday night to watching the DVD
lesson and practicing. Being dedicated is the only way to learn.
Thanks for doing such a great job of teaching on your DVDs.

-- Kristiaan Ewen,
|As owner of several other series of instructional salsa DVDs, I have no trouble in saying that the SalsaCrazy series is far and away the best set of instructional videos out there. Where other videos strain to teach a variety of "moves" ranging from simple to highly complex, the SalsaCrazy videos teach the student "DANCING". This is the least intimidating series of videos out there. I like that Evan doesn't come off as a professional dancer showing how good he is and doesn't make everything too technical. Most DVDs have dancers that are highly technical (rigid arms, arched back, toes so pointed they could puncture a concrete bunker) and thus boring or mildly cocky - the SalsaCrazy vids focus on having a GREAT TIME on the dance floor! The lessons and focus on a good attitude on the floor are very similar to those given by my 'live' salsa instructor. Evan presents himself as a(n) (abnormally!!) happy dude trying to show his partner a "crazy" good time. Looking forward to the intermediate series!

I ordered the DVD's before the
holiday's but naturally I had no time to watch them. Well I worked
thru the first one over the last month and looked at the other two.
Wow! These DVD's go into much more detail on the technique of Salsa.
After watching and practicing you will know how to Salsa. The
emphasis seems to be more quality instruction, as opposed to lists
of patterns. -- Doug Wainer
It was 1992 at the Candlelight
ballroom,which no longer exists,that I was introduced to both Salsa
and Argentine Tango, within weeks of each other. I couldn't make up
my mind which to learn, so I learned both of them .It was like
falling in love with two men at the same time!And I had to have both
of them! One was fun and playful and sexy, and wore T-shirts. The
other was elegant and dressed all in black that one wore a 1940's
hat. They both spoke Spanish, and knew how to move to all kinds of
rhythms.They both flirted with me outrageously, but in VERY
different ways.What's a girl to do? There were times I danced Tango
in El Cerrito, and after a couple of hours went down the street and
got in an hour of Salsa.How's that for unfaithful! I couldn't just
live in one world. If I had been dancing Tango a lot, I had to have
my Salsa "fix". I had to have two different kinds of
clothes;well,the Tango wardrobe was pretty much black dresses and a
lot of jewelry. My life is so rich now- I have TWO "families" of
friends, TWO rhythms to dance to, TWO very different moods to be in,
and TWO kinds of men to dance with. Well, why shouldn't I? I have
two feet, don't I? -- Ann C.

|I moved from the East Coast to San Francisco in 1994 to attend law school. I was older than my classmates as I was a "returning student." All I did was study and take care of my kid. Occasionally, I would venture out into the club scene, but I never met anyone. One day in 1997, a friend from law school told me about the new salsa scene. She talked me into taking a class at the Metronome. That was it-- I was hooked. After the second lesson, I really wanted to move--more than the structured class would allow--so I started hanging out at Pier 23 on Wednesday nights. During the summer, each week, Ritmo y Armonia played and the same people came. I would dance the whole night long and I made a lot of friends. I found that being held in the arms of a sexy latin man while dancing was a cure for my loneliness without intruding on the time I needed to put into my studies. Today, some things have changed in my life--I am a lawyer, my kid is graduating from high school and heading off to college. The one thing that hasn't changed in my life is the joy I feel when I am on the dance floor, moving to the salsa beat with the right partner.|
I used to dance since I was a
little girl living with my family in the former U.S.S.R. Most of the
children in my country had some sort of introduction to the world of
music and dance, and I was no different. Upon entering the U.S.
though I was always too busy to get back to dancing: marriage, kids,
school, work, etc. Then about four years ago I made a decision to
learn how to express myself through dance and took up salsa and
tango. Another reason that prompted me to start dancing again was
the fact that after being single for awhile and breaking up with my
boyfriend I was looking to fill my time with something meaningful.
Dancing allowed me not only to heal and grow, but also to develop
and to feel again. I can't imagine my life without dancing. -- Elana
Thanks for your video. You
helped me in a great way. See before the video, I hated dancing with
my husband because he couldn't dance too well. One night he saw me
practicing with the video by myself and decided to join me. Every
since, I loved dancing with my husband. We look forward to the next
The learners Vol 1 is very good
with so much detail, but in steady stages, so it soaks in easy.

|I want to thank you very much for making this dvd. I met a woman who loves to dance salsa and I never danced in my life. I went to many dance instructors, and litterally spent thousands.
Much to my surprise,I found out that EVERY Instructor I found, and used DID NOT KNOW HOW TO TEACH!!!!!! AT 60 DOLLARS PER HOUR!!!I recently got engaged, and I KNOW with your dvd I'll be dancing salsa at my wedding.I also want to say that out of all these so called dance instructors, not one guarrenteed me ANYTHING.I love the fact that if I miss something or misunderstand something that I can go back and wath over and over again especially with the little box, at the bottom of the screen with a close up of the dancers feet, or topic at hand.
Anyone truely can learn with this video!!!! |
I absolutely loved the
first volume. I was dancing with some prima dona who learned
elsewhere, and she moved like a robot! The rhythm taught on
your DVD was so much more fluid, I moved like hot honey- I was
so smooth! I have confidence in my ability knowing I have a
"private expert" in my corner!
-- S. Thomas
My wife and I have been
dancing for over 25 years and wanted to learn the latest crase,
the Salsa. Your DVD volume #1 arrived on Thursday and within a
few hours, my wife and I were dancing. WOW! YOur instructions
and visuals re great. The very next night, we went dancing at
a local ballroom and were doing the Salsa. Great DVD. Just
love you guys.
-- Mark Dukas
|"Piece of Cake!" Evan breaks everything down very well, he communicates clearly, and has a great sense of humor. Moira is an awesome dancer. The video has very good production values, shot in a great place, has reverse angle of footwork. Its a great product.|
I purchased volume 1 of
salsa dancing while I also was attending a group instruction.
The video was a tremendous. The instruction given was so much
more detailed than my live instructor. in addition I now could
model myself against an expert instead of against the others
in my dans class who are in the same incompetent level I was
in. I would suggest the video to anyone and in fact I already

When I discovered salsa I
woke up - I was dancing five nights a week wearing out my
shoes and even losing weight even though I still had a healthy
appetite. This sensual sexy ecstatic dance ignited my pilot
light and made me feel like I was flying. I'll never stop!
