Ladies, do you own a pair of hot pants that don’t not look too hot on you because they are not tight enough to hold you together?
I have a great solution for you. (more…)

What to Wear?

Swimsuit under a flair skirt…

“Edie,
Do you think that certain swimsuits look better than others (e.g. the ones with more frills or the ones with the “x” at the back)? I think that the swimsuit that I have looks too much like one…do you know what I mean? It’s just a regular tank type with the entire back exposed. What do you (more…)

How To Practice Your Salsa Moves

Learn to Salsa dance with Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!

Practice your Salsa moves during the Cha Cha, Bachata, and Merengue songs!!
One topic of the conversation was that the Salsa Purist dancers pretty much abandon everything but Salsa when clubbing.

However, for the beginners and intermediate dancers it is a good way to practice the more complicated turns and arm combinations.

Women’s Uh… Undergarments

SALSA DANCING:

Wearing Underwear with Class
This is a bit more complicated. I always had a problem with underwear.

  • What type?
  • What color?
  • How High?
  • How Low?
  • What brand?
  • Should I go without?

Here are a few GENERAL GUIDELINES that all dancers should follow
(unless of course, you want to get stared at, talked about, and I don’t think you’d like hearing what men as well as women are saying about you…. )

First of all…. just WHAT are your intentions? No, no, no, let me re-phrase that. What is good taste? Ladies, it doesn’t matter what your intentions are, if it’s done in good taste, your intentions won’t matter in this department. A man WILL NOT find a (more…)

no, No NO GARLIC!!!

Don’t EAT GARLIC THAT WHOLE DAY….NO, NO, NO onions or GARLIC!!!.
(even the smell of a recent burger on someone’s breath is noticeable…..)
There is NOTHING WORSE than dancing with someone and KNOWING what they just ate – ESPECIALLY onions and garlic!! When a man or woman smells of garlic, you bet I will tell them – even if I don’t know them very well. You will not believe the (more…)

Shoe Tips

HUGE MONEY SAVER:

Spray paint (not brush-paint) or air-brush your dance shoes if they get too scuffed up!

I have one pair that’s been SEVEN DIFFERENT COLORS.

You can match ANY outfit with your shoes now!

TIPS:

  • I “spray paint” brush ups almost weekly
  • Don’t bother with trying clean up the scuff marks (if you absolute must, rubbing alcohol with a pinch of salt does the trick).
  • IMPORTANT: You must buy the spray paint at shoe repair shops, or “Vinyl Spray Paint” they sell at (more…)

Get out of my FACE!!!

You know, you’re having a great time dancing with a guy, and suddenly all you see is his FACE in YOURS, about 2 centimeters away??? (If you’ve been out enough, we’ve ALL run into this at one point or another….) Then, if he talks to you, you can literally feel his SPIT splatter all over your face!! YUCK!!

At first, you think to yourself, “Well, it was just a slip, maybe he lost balance.. whatever…no big deal” BUT. He does it again, and again, and AGAIN, and it’s almost as if he wants to kiss you every other turn!!! If you’re NOT at all attracted to this guy (more…)
