Learn this incredible and most popular of all of the Latin social dances the right way with these beginner, intermediate and advanced level videos professionally taught and easy to understand by one of the most talented in the industry, Shaka Brown. This is not street Salsa that you can pick up in every night club in the country and on hundreds of instructional videos. Rather, this is "Salsa on 2, New York Style", the official aftermath of the "Palladium Mambo" that was danced by the Cubans in the Palladium Ballroom in the 1940's. This series of videos includes incredible, but very danceable and leadable techniquie and turn combinations that you will find next to impossible to learn out on the street. Especially designed for those who really wish to get good at and excel in their Salsa dancing.

As Tito Puente said in an interview several months before his untimely death,
"Salsa, Salsa, you put that on crackers...this is Mambo; I've been doing it for 35 years!".

The perfect gifts for those who wish to become better at their salsa and Salsa on 2
dancing, regardless of their level.
