Dancing Basic with Passion - Paso Doble


He is a superb reference for anyone studying Latin American dancing at Bronze, Silver or Gold level as well as ony competitor who would like to study the basics again in more detail.Slavik Kryklyvyy & Karina Smirnoff recorded these DVDs shortly before their split at the time when they were tipped to be the next world’s best professional couple. The way they show the basics is simply perfect, and not only technically. Visually they also create the most beautiful picture together. Everything is sparked up by Corky Ballas’s commentary and his high enthusiasm. A ‘must have’ reference DVD for any serious Latin-American dancer.
