Razz M Tazz Video Review
The Razz M Tazz Salsa instructional video series is phenomenal. One of the best I've seen. It is one of the only instructional dance videos where I felt like I was part of a family, watching and learning from friends teaching Salsa.
The videos are open shine, partnering, and ladies styling videos that make the viewer feel very comfortable with the moves that are being shown. The professional quality is exceptional. Angel and Addie are very thorough in explaining each combination, but not so thorough that the viewer gets bored watching it. I didn't find myself fast-forwarding through the video as I have with others I've seen. Their teaching technique keeps the student constantly interested, learning, and entertained. What was a surprise was watching how several men could "gang dance" one woman… and learning how to pass the woman from one guy to the next! I've never seen this actually being "taught" anywhere.
Addie Rodriguez is an exceptionally beautiful woman. Her stage presence adds so much spice and life to the entire production. In her Ladies Styling video, her radiance and energy more than complimented her incredible Jazzy Caribbean style. I love the way she broke down each head, hand, torso, and arm movement, transitioning between the group instruction class, and one-on-one training.
It was such a delight when her husband Angel called her "beautiful". That single sentence added so much warmth to the whole series, and hope to those of us who are single, that true love and marriage can happen on the dance floor.
loved the endings of each video, where we see Addie and others "jamming"
and "getting down" with the band on the congas, clave, and other drums.
Overall, the Razz M Tazz video series is GREAT - full of fun, laughter
and life. I highly recommend this video series for both men and women,
at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels of learning Salsa.
