Jose DeCamps & Jami Josephson
The Salsa Syllabus: Bronze, Silver and Gold level

These are in our opinion the best DVDs if you want to learn the full Salsa syllabus at Beginners and Advanced level. Jose and Jami not only show and explain the steps. They also explain the difference between various salsa styles, namely
  • L.A.style
  • New York style
  • Miami style
  • Puerto Rico style
  • Cuban style
  • London style
The first few steps are demonstrated in the two most popular styles: LA style "On 1" and New York style "On 2". Later on all steps are demonstrated in New York style "on 2".

Each video is professionally produced in an organized one-on-one format like a private lesson, making this Dance Vision Video/DVD clear and easy to comprehend. There is no other so comprehensive encyclopedia of salsa we know of!
