There are no words to say how appreciative I am of having learned this system. The Black Belt Salsa program simplifies... the learning process and has helped me gain confidence as a dancer and now an instructor. I strongly recommend Edie as she is a wonderful and patient instructor and exceptional dancer. Check this out. You won't be disappointed.read more

We took private classes with Edie and the only thing I can say is that she is the best salsa instructor ever! She is... very professional, dances like a queen and has a fantastic system that she invented to teach beginners or advanced dancers. I forgot to mention how much patience she has and on top of everything she is a lot of fun. She is the right instructor if you need to learn salsa and I promise you that after the classes you'll be able to dance and have fun dancing.read more

I have always been a fan of Salsa music and always hoped to be able to dance it one day; unlike Latinos, I did not have... the chance to learn walking and Salsa dancing as a baby; all I could is do is looking with envy at these talented people dancing Salsa as it would be the easiest and simplest thing to do, which is not. Salsa is one of the most difficult dance to learn. My wife and I decided to take private lessons, spending thousands of dollars on Salsa teachers who taught us single steps but after many months, we were still not able to dance. Edie the Salas Freak is the teacher of the teachers, not only because she is an incredibly talented Salsa dancer but because she spent a great amount of time collecting and classifying all the hundred Salsa moves into different levels called belts, like in Judo. Starting from easy (white belt), every single level has a structure, a perfectly organized system designed to help laypeople to become dancers and good dancers to reach the next higher level of perfection. Basically, each level has its graphic panel, explaining in a systematic way the different moves, classified in clusters, like high hands, shoulders etc. but also a video where Edie demonstrates and explains each move. You just need to look and select what you want or need, pretty much like a vending machine. This is exactly what we needed. We flew from sunny Florida to freezing Denver CO to spend 5 days @ 6 hours each with Edie. She is a marvelous personality who has tons of patience not only for explaining how to dance following her system but also to make out of you a good-looking dancer. That is not an easy task because knowing the technique does not make you a good dancer; I had to learn how to lead, making my partner understand what my next move is, based on my posture which was basically bad. To correct it was a big challenge. Edie is so professional showing patience that I would never be able to. A video made on the first and the last day shows the difference like night and day. I am now sitting in the plane on my way back to Florida. Not only we can dance Salsa but we have Edie’s system to improve what we learned with her, practicing 10 minutes a day, we will get much better.read more

I discovered BBS for myself about 10 months ago. And Tuesday is my favorite day of the week ever since! Black Belt... system consists of step by step instructions and different levels (belts). Once you completed all the classes in one level, you can test out and transfer to the next one. This way you perfect every move. Last Tuesday of every month there is a Dress to Impress party, and about once a month or so, there is an event, like Masquerade, Halloween, "wear all white" Christmas, Valentine's day, St. Patrick's Day etc., when everyone can have some extra FUN! After the class there is always dinner consisting of various dishes including fresh fruit and veggies, and social dancing so everyone can practice the moves they learned. Occasionally Edie does workshops on Sundays, ex.g. Ladies Styling, Spinning workshop, bootcamp for beginners etc. All great workshops to attend. Quite often Edie also invites dancers, performers, other instructors from other schools, musicians to teach her students about different aspects of dance as an art. BBS is also a fabulous SOCIAL event, that makes you forget about your work, stimulates your brain, burns calories, helps you meet lots of amazing people not only from Denver, but from all over the world!read more
