"I received your instructional Merengue DVD and thought it was fantastic. It had unique patterns shown from every angle and the outdoor background is beautiful" (Rick, RVPatton_at_verizon.net)
"I dont know how people dance merengue in your city, but where I live, people instead of dancing, are just making complicated nodes with their hands on merengue music.
If you want to feel the music, start learning basic but beautiful moves get this DVD. The scenery is gorgeous, the moves are progressive so from basic you progress to advanced. Even if you just copy what they show you, it will be fantastic, but as they say on the DVD, get the inspiration from what you see to create your own style. As a guy, just by succeeding in duplicating his moves will make me more than happy. 5 friends (girls) when they see the woman dancing, feel the same: this is the way they want to dance. How to make it come true? Watch the video, practice, practice and practice.
...two weeks after...
Before this DVD, merengue was just the easy dance to move the body on a salsa evening. Practicing for a week with my new girlfriend, merengue became the expression of sensuality. We love the feelings we are getting from the movements and ideas of the DVD! (Christofe, artsski_at_yahoo.com)
"So my thirst for Salsa DVDs lead me to SalsaIsGood but the DVD that quickly caught my eye was Feelin' Merengue. One does not often see Merengue DVDs. Nor ones shot in such gorgeous locations in Australia
- who knew this was a the home of such excellent Merengue instruction. Much to the amazement of this Canadian lad, these folks living out back of beyond had crafted an absolutely brilliant instructional DVD. I am totally in awe of their minimalist but so effective teaching approach. The focus is on your partner and on the music. Put those together and you have true beauty in the dance. My partner and I danced a better Merengue after just one viewing when we went to a party that evening. Generously, the site provides a script to the video so remember to download it. The price and the ability to download the video make this a truly excellent purchase for anyone who wants to improve their Merengue. You will be amazed at how quickly the improvement happens after a little practice.
I think the biggest plus is that the minimalist approach of no dialogue works amazingly well. In fact, I would even say that there was less distraction as one focused on visually processing and not attempting to comprehend dialogue as well. Certainly works for Merengue. Well done on this different approach.
All the pluses:
- dancers are amazing
- locations are incredibly beautiful
- love the music
- progression of moves is excellent
- moves are fun and unique
- video editing is quite artistic" (Patrick, ashby at rogers com)
"Cool moves and great soundtrack" (Alan, ahotich_at_hotmail.com)
"I am fascinated by the merengue dance materials you put together.
And of course the rest of the materials I bought. The lessons put together are very systematic in the order of importance, and the slow motion effect plus the self-rewind are very helpful! It allows me to concentrate on the dance steps/practice without interruptions on pressing the remote control. The slow motion and the rewind effect are an excellent idea" (William, tradam rogers com)
".... my girlfriend and I really really enjoyed it. In fact it is the best dvd we bought to date. ... this merengue dvd is simply the best for many reasons. Obviously the moves but the ideas behind the dance (gentle, intimate etc...) i really liked that part." (Francois, ricbel23_at_yahoo.ca)
"Excellent, from all points of view! The ideas, the filming of the figures from differnt angles, the slow motion, the background" (Bruno, bruno.carchedi_at_tiscalinet.it)
"I find your dvd very nice, very interesting and well done" (Lilian, lilian.buzer_at_wanadoo.fr)

"I have received your dvd on merengue lessons and I like it very much, this is exactly what I have hoped for. This dvd is so much fun. ... Many Thanx for this great loads of fun dvd." (michel, edjemagnesium at yahoo.com)
"The Merengue DVD is very, very good. There is no verbal instructions on DVD. At first I thought this would be a hinderence. The variations are clear and easily followed. There are plenty of variations. Both dancers have good clean and clear Cuban motion. I thought black would mute the visual of motion. It is clear to see Fabio's dance motion and moves in the video. The follow wears a summer dress. Her movements are clean, clear and sexy. Both dancers flow together.
... The dancers, the natural settings. This DVD is infectious. It makes you want to go out and dance" (thomas dot g dot brandl at cummins.com)
