I need to break up with my boyfriend. But I don’t want to tell him I’m already seeing someone else. I just want to break up. It seems like every time we break up, he always somehow creeps into my life again. We keep breaking up, then getting back together, then breaking up, then getting back together.

By Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!
I’m a woman, and go out dancing all the time. I meet a lot of great people (men) but it’s been several months now, and not a single one of them has asked me out… I’m not that bad looking, have even been told that I’m a “looker”, and “outside” the Salsa scene I have no problem dating men.

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night? (more…)
Save it for later….
By Edie, The Salsa FREAK
It’s a beautiful night in the city. The music is slamming, and the nightclub is full of dancers having fun. In the middle of the dance floor, I noticed a cute couple, distracted and having a small discussion.
“Ouch, that hurt! Would you mind not pulling on my arm so hard during that move?” she said angrily (more…)
Surviving a Dance Partnership
A Few Words of Wisdom, From Edie, The Salsa FREAK
Aaaahhhâ€¦. The Things Iâ€™ve Learnedâ€¦
I was inspired to write this article by a newlywed couple that took a private lesson from me in Innsbruck, Austria. They were dance partners, and had only been married four months. They were both excellent dancers in their own styles. He had an amazing Hip Hop and Samba background, while she was an accomplished professional ballroom instructor, with additional experience in jazz, ballet and tap since the age of six. Both could dance Salsa relatively well, however as a relatively inexperienced lead, his uphill climb was
I have thought on numerous occasions of writing you to tell you my Salsa story, but it seems that will not happen just yet. A more pressing issue has arisen recently, concerning romantic relationships with people having two left feet and no rhythm.
I know you’re a busy lady, so no hurry on a response. I feel like this is going to be a long one, so I apologize in advance. I just woke up this morning feeling like I needed to write.
First, for background purposes, here is a brief explanation of what Salsa has meant to me. (more…)
I read your response to “Just Trying to Help” concerning his jealous partner. The same thing happened to me except I was the jealous one.
My EX-fiance is a dance instructor and has been dancing for many years. I on the other hand am new to the dance scene. I really love it and am addicted to Salsa. However, I am not very good…yet.
