I also have all three discs and have had them for years. They are a bit too cut and dried. There's just not much life to the instruction. It is a good style that he teaches, but be prepared to drink a lot of coffee as you watch these. It would have helped, a lot, if his partner had had equal time to speak and describe what she was doing and feeling on her side. It would have helped a lot, all around, if they had "broken the fourth wall" and talked to the camera about what they were doing instead of relying on the "voice over" for everything. Like someone describing a long movie with the sound off...

I actually own the 3 disc collection of Tango videos by Fabian Salas. I'm an intermediate Argentine tango dancer and I found the instruction to be clearly presented both visually and aurally (in English) with regular speed and slow motion. The first video is good for novices, while disk 2 & 3 are best for advanced beginners or intermediates. Some Argentine tango instructional videos are hurt by the hokey style of the instructor, but Salas has a very classic easy-going style that any dancer would be wise to emulate if they don't to be laughed out of a milonga.
