SalsaCrazy Learn to Dance Merengue DVD Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links and Images

I received Learn to Dance Merengue Beginning and Intermediate, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The collection comes with one DVD. The DVD is taught by Alison Hurwitz and Jesus Ortiz.

The video teaches the basic steps before it moves into the beginner and   intermediate lessons. First, the video teaches the history of merengue.  The dance originated in the Dominican Republic. Started out as a dance for the peasant class, Merengue also has been used in political commentary and social expression.

The video teaches you the steps from multiple positions. The video also teaches you mistakes to make, such as not to bounce. And to hit the floor with the ball of your foot and not the heel. Hurwitz also says most of the action occurs downstairs or the hips and below. You also learn how to bend your knees properly.

The video is great for an amateur dancer like me, who lacks rhythm. I can take my time learning the steps versus being rushed into the more advanced steps.

You can purchase Learn to Dance Merengue, along with other Dance Crazy, Salsa Crazy, and Bachata Crazy DVDS on Amazon. You can learn to waltz, salsa, bachata, and even salsa workout.  The DVD (s) is prime-eligible
