“Do you belong to a Salsa Clique? Are Salsa cliques a benefit or are they a detriment to the Salsa World?
I am reminded of the Biblical tale of the Tower of Babel. Everyone was trying to build a Tower to reach Heaven and the only way God sought to stop this was to divide everyone by changing their languages so that they could not communicate. Hence, the Tower ceased to grow. (more…)
“Beyond Being a Salsaholic – Confessions of a Salsa Junkie”
By Marla Friedler
I have to confess that I am actually worse than a Salsaholic. Add my obsessive/compulsive personality to that of the average Salsaholic and what you get is a downright salsa junkie. Not only do I dance every day (and yes, I am the same Marla who changes clothing in the car between clubs), but (more…)
So Your Dance Partner SMELLS…
by Edie, The Salsa FREAK
OMG… ok. I KNOW for a FACT that most of you have already experienced this…
You just asked, or got asked to dance by a really good partner, you’re excited to get out there, and you realize THEY SMELL BAD.
What do you do? (more…)
I have been DYING to do a story about this! I thought I was the only one that did this! I ran into my girlfriend Marla at a Salsa Club Sunday night in Los Angles, and the both of us had been dancing at other clubs and taking various classes that whole day… we saw each other (again) that evening, and started some “girl-talk” on how we changed our outfits between clubs…In the bathroom… (more…)

So I was out dancing up a storm at some Salsa club the other night (surprised?) in [country] and I was dancing a REAL CLOSE Bachata with this guy that was really cute.
The music was awesome, the ambiance to die for, the crowd incredible, and he was an excellent lead. He kept it simple, (more…)
What to Do About Dancing with Real Long Hair…
(you, or your partner)
At the Salon…
Well, here I type, sitting under this hair dryer, staring the most gorgeous Puerto Rican Salsera I’ve ever seen. Not only does this woman have looks and a body to kill, but the most beautiful, healthy, long, dark brown hair in Los Angeles. “It’s to my tailbone now”, she says with a laugh.

Fishnet stockings Why, When, and How ???
Well ladies, let me tell you all the wonderful reasons why, when, and how, I wear skin-colored fishnet pantyhose.
Although it may be hard to believe, but I am not the skinniest and sexiest Salsera in the world, so I’ve had to resort to wearing fishnets to cover up certain elements of cellulite that may or may not be there at any given time, primarily depending on WHAT I’VE EATEN the week before and (more…)
If you’re wearing a dress, and during dancing, you realize it’s “rubbing” your nipples raw…
If you realize this during dancing, and don’t want to go home due to your Salsa-fix needs, go to the management’s office at the club, and ask for some tape – any tape. Tape ’em up baby! But, if you know this PRIOR to going out, see about sewing a bra into the inside of the dress. Make sure bra is the same color as the dress. If that doesn’t work, and you refuse to wear a bra, wear bandaids over your nipples prior to going out. This prevents the soreness the next day!
