“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…)
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…)

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!
