How to prevent falling asleep on the road or freeway at 2:30-3:00am after dancing.

This is EVERYTHING I’ve done at that hour. I usually had about an hour drive home, so I would…

    • I rub my hands very rapidly together, like I’m freezing.
    • I also chew gum.
    • drink water.
    • stop at an all-night convenience store to buy coffee (at 2:30am.
    • pull over and take a 15 minute nap.
    • bang your head against the window.
    • call a Salsa friend and talk each other home (they are the ONLY people that will understand/relate).
    • Go have a bite to eat someplace.


Drinking and Salsa Dancing

Don’t drink too much alcohol (or preferably non at all) while dancing.
Hard-core serious dancers can’t stand dancing with someone intoxicated.

    • This screws up your lead.
    • This screws up your follow.
    • This messes up your balance,
    • … messes up your spinning.
    • … destroys your career,
    • … destroys your relationships,
    • … makes everyone you come in contact with … utterly miserable.

Chafed Nipples

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!
