Thank you for the Beginner's Corner
Edie, I don’t really have a question. Just wanted to let you know how reassuring it is to read the stuff in the Beginners Corner. Learning Salsa has been a struggle. I thought there was something wrong with my “musicality” but then I learned of musicians that arrange Salsa and can’t dance to their own music. So this is hard stuff and on more than one occasion I have been ready to quit but right now I’m on an all out attack using no fewer than four instructors on and off. Here is the most embarrassing thing: I have learned the most from the instructor I least expected to learn from. She is one of those natural dancers, raised in [city] and is strict about timing. Although my timing is far from perfect it has improved to the point of getting through an entire song doing shines without missing a beat thanks to her.
Well, in any case, thanks for the Beginners Corner.
