    I used to believe that you can learn to dance salsa from videos and YouTube clips.

    Now I know better.

    I guess it's less about how one can't learn (anything) from videos, and more about he should learn from a teacher who can give him feedback.
    This is especially true for beginners, who may think they understand things that they not, and risk developing bad habits.

    In addition, there is no guarantee that the instruction on the net is clear and 'solid' enough: A student may misinterpret what he is seeing/hearing.
    In class, the instructor can see (on the students) when his instruction wasn't good enough - and fix it.

  6. Totally agree with what you said. I would not advise someone to learn his first steps from the internet - especially - when working with a partner - because as you also said - there are so many mistakes he can do when no one can correct him or her.

    However - for an intermediate dancer who understands the basics very good - learning on YouTube can be very nice tool :)

    The main problem with all vids is, you cannot ask questions !

    Like techn books, they are a "guide " and interpretations can and often do lead (no pun ) to mis-understandings . And, it also largely depends upon the source of the info. as in by whom.

    In addition, the nuance of movement is abstract .
    The more important point in vids IMO, is it opens the mind to explore and examine in more detail ( or should ! ) .

    I subscribed.:) Nice channel. Use a playlist tool on youtube to sort your videos.
     
  9. Thanks for checking it out! I hope you will find it helpful...

    Thanks for the tip about the playlists... matter of fact - I do have playlists in the channel - and they are visible ONLY in the HOME PAGE of the channel - since they are unlisted at the moment.

    I will make them turn them public - one by one in the next few weeks - (it is mostly for the youtube algoritm.. )

    but again - if you check out the homepage of the channel you will see everything very nicely organized...

    I can recommend these guys, but it is not free. Good for beginners. Also, videos will never substitute high-quality feedback. So the best option is to take classes and additionally learn from the web.
