I just keep falling in love with everybody I dance with! I can’t help it! I go from one person, to the next, then to the next, and it’s all in one evening! What should I do??”

“STOP!! STOP!! STOPPPPP!!!!! You are going to get yourself in trouble my friend! Not only that, but you’ll start to develop a reputation, and you don’t want that! Salsa is a sensual dance. It is a dance that helps you release deep emotions inside. Salsa is one of the (more…)
I am relatively new to the Salsa “scene,” and need some quick advice/information. I know that my problem is probably covered in your new book, so I’ll agree to buy the book if you give me a little preview advice. Here’s my problem-
From time to time, I will meet a guy (often Latino, but not always) at a club, who is either a great dancer, or not a great dancer, who will dance with me several times and be very attentive, and then ask for my phone number. (FYI I am white, at least semi-attractive, and (more…)
During a holiday event, one of the “regular” Salseros who my wife always dances with, crossed the line and kissed her after the dance was finished. Because of the event I didn’t create a scene. (although I was having I second thought when I was leaving). She’s my normal dance partner, and we (more…)
I love the Salsa FREAK website, it’s so entertaining & I can really appreciate the “down to earth” answers that you give to almost every question under the sun. However, I have a question for you that you may not have had before and I could appreciate some insight and wisdom from you.
I am a beginning Salsera (been taking lessons since February) and I am ADDICTED. I can totally relate to you when you talk about needing to get your “fix.” I take lessons twice a week and go out regularly to clubs. My problem is my husband. (more…)
“Hi Edie: I have encountered a problem in my search for a Salsa dance partner in New York City and am wondering if you had any ideas.
I am a natural born Salsera in my mid 30s who has been dancing Salsa all my life!! I would like to hook up with a male dance partner (intermediate to advanced) to practice at least once a week here in the NYC clubs. The problem I have encountered is the fact that I am married. (more…)
I’ve been dancing for a year now, and absolutely love it,…I have recently moved in with my long-term boyfriend…and I am a bit sad because we always end up having an argument when I drag him along to a night (he usually doesn’t want to come with me) Does it really mean the end of a relationship if your man doesn’t dance, doesn’t want to make an effort, doesn’t like the people , and doesn’t particularly like the music? But I get on well with him otherwise…… (more…)
Always respect other men’s girlfriends or significant others – you sometimes may not know it, but if you “suspect” that person is “taken”, ask the significant “other” if you may dance with thier wife/spouse/girlfriend/partner, whatever. Believe me, they appreciate it, and will respect you for it. 90% of the time, they will be more than happy to let you dance with their significant “other”. (more…)
Be friendly, but not naive!
This is good advice, especially for the ladies.If you’re out to dance and have fun, just dance and have fun. Dance with as many different men as you can. This will turn-off anyone who has different intentions for you.
However, if you’re going dancing and out for something more than just dancing, don’t let the whole world know about it. Be specific, quietly, and have some class. (more…)
