I’ve always wanted to dance salsa as it is funand stress-free, but I find excuses all the time for not actually doing it. Surely not knowing any of the dance steps is a valid justification.
For all shy people who won’t attend a course because they feel clumsy, Salsaroc Salsa Shines offers some help.
With this application you have several salsa figures and a series of steps, of increasing difficulty.
The graphics are rather crude and not really appealing, but in this case it’s the content that matters. What I’ve found extremely useful is the slow motion function, which allows you to see the steps in smooth, slow movements.
This is something you wouldn’t even get from a face-to-face class and it’s the real advantage of having a course on your PC.
When attending courses, you might find difficult to understand where exactly to place the feet because teacher does it in front of you at his normal speed.
In this application the teacher instead emulates your position, meaning he dances with his back to you, so that if he moves the left foot, you don’t have to think about which foot you have to move.
It’s simply the left one! I know this may sound silly, but when figures get complicated I can assure you it eases things a lot. With the slow motion, finally you can see exactly where you have to place your feet, saving you from bad figures and your partner from bruises.
In order to get new lessons you need to go in the main menu and register your program, following the on-screen instructions. A full-screen mode is also available, but it doesn’t add much to the smaller frame view.
Salsaroc Salsa Shines helps you stand out on the dance floor, as it offers slow motion movements to help you clearly understand every position.
