Product Information

Samba Syllabus

Produced by Dance Vision 2010. Approx. 168 minutes.

Make room on the dance floor Shakira! If learning to Samba is on your New Year's resolution list, you need this DVD. Beyond the basic syllabus steps, discover a plethora of prized, instructional content that is sure to make you a better social dancer, performer or competitor. In this beginner-level DVD, Latin champions, Donald Johnson & Kasia Kozak, coach you through each step of the American Rhythm DVIDA Bronze Samba Syllabus with every section enhanced by valuable technique points and drills that will improve your dance game.
This DVD is like purchasing a reference book and thousands of dollars of personal coaching time all in one. And, like any valuable resource tool, you can use it in a number of ways to achieve your goals. Beginners, for example, can quickly achieve "dance floor readiness" by learning precise Samba bounce technique and the first four syllabus steps. Take a look at Donald Johnson & Kasia Kozak's first demonstration (Figures 1-5) to see how impressive you can look by simply mastering these entry-level steps. Visual learners might find it helpful to go to the end of each section first to see the respective step performed to music, then return to "start" to learn the steps, timing and foot positions covered during the first few minutes. Quick learner? Take advantage of the incredible pro tips provided by both champions during the last two-thirds of each syllabus step instruction. If you don't know the difference between an "and" and an "ah" in Samba, you will now! There are great drills to use, ways to embellish the basic syllabus step, helpful perspectives to create a strong lead and small points - like how to use your spine or your thighs - that create BIG changes in your dance technique. Work with the pro tips in one or two sections at a time and learn how the pros make this dance so amazing to watch. Do you hear the beat? ZONG, chica, chica, tica, BONG, chica, chica, tica...
