Need Some Advice, or Just Someone to Talk To?
If you’ve ever gotten to a point in your life where you feel you just need a mentor, coach, or adviser
Seek Edie’s Wisdom.
Edie is known worldwide for her ability to see the big picture – something you may need.
“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.” – Patrick Calman
“I really enjoyed my online private lesson with Edie. I was a bit skeptical to be coached remotely, but I was quite surprised at how much detail she could see in my movements and the precise corrections she suggested that helped me improve my spins. I got so much out of the lesson and look forward to many more with her!” – Kathryn Rutti
“During our online private lesson, you were dropping ideas that we must carry on the dance floor. Things that are reserved for the most dedicated student. For some reason, I feel lighter than I was.” – Arturo Hernandez
