Description: Never has there been a better way to learn from home. Compare to your local dance studio and you’ll realize you will save a ton of time and money (and heartbreak) while starting your new and legendary hobby.
No partner? No problem. Our professional teachers will explain how movements translate from your virtual partner to a real world experience. Pause. Slow down. Rewind. Practice. With a level dedicated to dance fundamentals, even those of us with two left feet can learn to check our balance and get used to dancing in VR, so we can eventually do it in the real world.
Review: While I have to start with praising ‘Salsa-Virtual’ for bringing something to VR I never thought possible I do still have to give this experience a good old slating. First of all the animation which should have been the only and only thing that was smooth as silk is utterly terrible and doesn’t match the fluidity of dancing at all. Then there is the lack of Vive multi-tracker support and finally, the final nail in this apps coffin is the quite frankly ridiculous price tag. This app isn’t worth a fraction of the current £15.49 and it really should have been free it is that poorly made. A good idea on paper it might have been, but in practice, it’s a terrible one.
