Dance Dojo Reviews

I'm taking a group salsa course 3 times per week (here in Jakarta, Indonesia), but I came in the middle of it all...as in, I wasn't really taught the basics of salsa and was just "shoved" in there in the middle of it all, so to speak. This is where The Dance Dojo comes in and explained to me in an easy way the basic steps of salsa and fills in the gap that I've been missing in a structured way. The 'Absolute Beginner' module helped me understand and learn salsa more in an enjoyable way even if my current salsa teacher didn't explain all the basics to me in a structured way. It's been super fun learning The Dance Dojo way, too! Simple and easy.
I tried learning salsa a couple of times in the past already. Each time at the very beginning I was bored because I wanted to go quicker and the group learning tempo was too slow for me. But at the same time, when moves started to be more complex, I often got lost.
Here I can learn at my own pace, slow the video, stop at any point, and rewatch any time I want. I also really like the links to previous „base” moves in those more complex ones. I don’t even need to search through the course to recap quickly the base.
All the recordings are super high quality, with good sound, and very very good explanations, step by step, but also showing on what other move they are based (e. g. that inside turn starts with cross-body).
I must admit, that I was reluctant at first. But fortunately, there is a trial period so you can verify if it works for you. I don’t regret it, I’m so happy that I got back to dance and that I’m having fun. And there is soo muuuch content in the course 😻
Dance has been life changing. I’ve always been hesitant to step out of my comfort zone and onto the dance floor. Dance Dojo has been a priceless tool, giving me confidence to face those fears.
I’ve been using it as a supplement for dance classes and social dancing. It has been vital at helping me practice on my own and to break down techniques. My process has been accelerated by the teachings & it has doubled my skill level.
Without it I don’t think I would have had such an easy time merging with the community of talented dancers in Los Angels. I can’t thank Robin enough.
I would strongly recommend getting the unlimited package of both salsa and bachata because they go hand in hand. I hope they come out with a kizomba course soon!
I go to salsa and bachata partner classes twice a week and this bundle course is a great addition. This is the fastest way to learn as this course provides you with video resources you can watch over in your own time. You get out of it what you put in. Costs about £8-£10 for classes in my area so if you compare that with the course price it's very reasonable. Worth trying the free week trial at least. All the instructors in the videos are great and know their craft.
Salsa & Bachata Course Bundle (Paid Once)
I have been dancing salsa for a year because I had some great basics from social dancing. And yet I learned a lot in the first video for people that have not danced salsa before.
The teachers really do teach you everything, and step by step. I always saw people teaching how in the 4th step you return to the base position with both legs next to each other, and then when you see them dancing they don’t do that. This was explained in the first videos! Nobody teaches you that, or with such detail.
I’m happy with this course and can recommend it.
Hi everyone, just bought the salsa bachata course bundle and i'm extremely happy with my purchase! To be honest I didn't expect a such high level of information! Everything is simple and clear and very detailed moreover they have the secret to keep you motivated day aflter day, big thanks for the all team ( special one to Harold) and keep going I mean keep teaching and dancing.😉 well done guys!
Fully pleased with the first few weeks of access. The lessons are progressive and each new movement is well taught with instructions for leads, instruction for follows, and often additional refinement tips added after the basics are completed. Looking ahead there are many, many movements to master through the course. Also helpful is a beginner’s level discussion of finding the beat and the 1 in complex salsa instrumentation. I remain happy with purchase.
I love how well structured all the lessons are. How they begin with a demo, then are followed by in-dept explanations. Highly love it!
Buying the course is the best thing I could have done to improve my technique and my partner's. Very well explained including important details that changed some moves me were doing in a great way
I spent a lot of time and money attending salsa classes from different teachers for years, yet my dancing skills look awkward and too mechanical in the dance floor. Learning just the steps and variation with out learning the correct body isolation and timing is a big mistake...you can use few and simple steps and moves yet you will look very good in the dance floor if with the right posture ,foot positioning and body isolation......Glad I got this bundled course... i can now improve how I look when dancing salsa and bachata...
The course is easy to follow, fun and includes lots of tips for improving technique. My husband and I practice along at home to refine technique, then use what we learned to advance quickly in group classes.
Hey! This really works! At the comfort of your computer and with all the flexibility. Make the most out of it with a dance partner and going to socials to practice what you’ve learned in this course
Dance Dojo (Salsa and Bachata) is better than most group classes, more useful than the typical congress workshop, and nearly as beneficial as the much more expensive private lesson.
Dance Dojo versus group classes. We have an excellent group class experience, but this format does not allow enough reps and sometimes lacks sufficiently detailed instruction. Yes, we can make videos at the end of class, but it doesn't come with verbal instruction. And we don't always get special tips on how to make everything appear effortless. DD overcomes all these shortcomings (and you only have to pay for it once).
Dance Dojo versus workshops. We've attended 6 weekend festivals this year. Workshops by "good" teachers are consistently oversubscribed, and only when you are in the front row do you get a decent look at what's happening. Rotation or no rotation, you never get enough reps. Rarely is the instruction detailed or complete with tips. The demo at the end of the workshop almost never comes with instruction and often includes performance aspects, so it's more of a souvenir than an instructional video. (Better to schedule private lessons when you discover a good teacher.) Again, DD overcomes all of these shortcomings.
Dance Dojo versus private lessons. DD is way less expensive and offers many of the advantages of private lessons. What DD lacks (comparatively) are personalized instructions about what you are doing well or awkwardly, helpful suggestions about how to overcome your awkwardness with specific drills or training techniques, and dancing with your instructor (which is invaluable for uncovering where you're going astray). I would not trade my private lessons for DD, but I see DD as an invaluable complement to these lessons.
Bottom line: Dance Dojo Salsa & Bachata provides excellent instruction, helpful tips, and a comprehensive assortment of lessons. You won't be disappointed.
Disclaimer: we have not finished all the advanced lessons yet, and I would consider us to be intermediate/advanced dancers, so I can't claim to know how good the advanced lessons are.
Robin, loving the program, I started ballroom dancing with my daughter about a year ago. Having trouble because they want us to learn 4 dances. Which is good for their social dances since they have all types of dancing. This program is helping me focus on salsa, which is my preferred dance. Instruction is great, and motion is key. To many things to learn in just 1 hour a week at the studio. Thanks , Nick
Well constructed videos. Start to finish!
I love my dance studio, but always struggled with learning outside of class. I started watching dance dojo on YouTube and finally decided to just pay for all the content. Totally worth it!
Being taught push pull salsa in unorganised way but thanks to Dance-Dojo I am able to lean the basics without stress at home and practice on my unsuspecting class mates. My ability to lead is without pulling is very gratifying. Still learning the basics so a long way to go.
When I read the description of the course, I felt like the list of usual problems with just taking classes was written for me. This course is the perfect way to super-charge your Salsa progress and break-through to the next level. It’s broken down into clear parts, so I feel like I’m getting the value of a private lesson on the specific things I want to learn for a fraction of the price. Don’t hesitate to buy this course if you want to improve, my dance partners are already noticing the difference and I’m sure yours will too!
I love that I have videos at my fingertips . I take private lessons but these videos help out so much more because it help cements my knowledge .
This is the best online salsa program out there! I learned much better than actually going to a salsa class in my local area! I love it !
Dance Dojo is making it easy for us to learn, its soo exciting and fun as well!
I very much like the dance instruction and finding the beat musical instruction. I have never found (in one course) such a rich library of instruction on the dance steps, the techniques, how to practice, how to find the beat or 1, and how to be a better dancer. The Dance Dojo is without a doubt the richest and most comprehensive dance program I have ever come across. You can find bits and pieces here and there with other programs and videos, but on the dance Dojo covers all the topics, soup to nuts, A-Z. Robin, Patrick, and Scarlett are all superb in their instruction and very motivating. I highly recommend the course.
Currently, I am taking dance lessons in a group setting, in person, and I still find the detailed instruction very helpful. I am very pleased with the course.
my enemy is the chaos, the lack of organization going from one lesson to some workshop or some congress...
here I find a clear, organized topics with progress, step by step with a unified point of view. great!
that's all. A guarantee (I hope) for some progress
I first started learning to lead salsa several years ago, but I found it so confusing that I never really committed to the process and subsequently gave up. Patrick and Scarlet break down all the information perfectly to make it easy to understand and absorb. I’m excited to learn now! And all the videos with Robin on how we learn, forming good habits, and learning how to count the music are such lovely bonuses!
