Manuel Salado ~ El Baile Flamenco vol.16: Alegrias & Martinetes (advanced level) ~ DVD & CD
Each DVD in this series begins with a performance of the piece (or pieces) to be studied. The performances are then repeated, once with the visual focus on the feet, and another on the upper body. The explanations and commentaries provided are thorough and to the point. The music is performed by guitarists, singers, and palmeros. The CD's contain audio versions of the pieces, both with and without audible footwork, as well as tracks of straight compas (a la Solo Compas), so you can absorb and practice each form on your own. A well structured approach combining the two media that should be excellent for intermediate to advanced students of the dance. The DVD's are multi-format and will play anywhere, and you can select audio in Spanish, English, French, or Japanese.
