Dear Salsa Freak,
I have just started private Salsa lessons. The challenge I am having is that my wife is now quite an accomplished dancer. The truth is that I just took two classes with her when she started about two years ago, she begged me to go, but because I didn’t like “Salsa” at the time, I quit, and told her never to invite me to a club, because I didn’t like the “scene”. Well, now I never see her anymore, we’re having problems, and I thought I may need to start taking a few Salsa lessons. (more…)
In order to reduce the size of my spreadsheet, I have shown the 8 beats as groups of 4 beats i.e.
I counted 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4.**
Please let me know if you particularly want me to expand the spreadsheet to show all of the 96 possible
ways to dance Salsa and then pick out the 24 ways of dancing Salsa on Clavé.*
Ciao, Barry Gordon – creator

Do you think there is a difference between what you do and what you normally see from people with ballroom dance training (especially on shows like Dancing with the Stars, etc.)? If so, how would you explain that difference? (more…)
