  • Young Dancers Molested by Dance Instructors

    Young Dancers Molested by Dance Instructors

    "Dear Edie,
    I know a ballroom instructor who had used his position to obtain sex with young girls as young as 17 and 18 and have girls undress for him in the dance studio.
    How do you stop this?" - Appalled


    Dear Appalled,

    You call the police. It is NOT up to you to stop him.
    Let the POLICE conduct a full investigation. NOT YOU.

    Tell the owner / his boss, AFTER you have done the above. If the owner does not fire him on the spot, leave the studio, then, post all over social media why you left.

    You will NEVER be able to stop this behavior. PEOPLE DO NOT CHANGE. His pathetic behavior...

  • Patent Attorney Q&A

    Patent Attorney Q&A



    Hello world!
    I recently applied for a Patent on an invention.

    Below are a few questions I asked a qualified Patent Attorney, and the answers I received:


    Patent Attorney Questions...

    1. What are the steps I need to take legally to make sure I am not copying anyone else's idea, and that my idea will not be copied.
    The first and most important step you must take is to conduct background research on your invention to make sure that it has not already been patented. You can and should try to do this research before hiring a lawyer. Once you hire a lawyer he or she will do their own independent research to verify that your invention has not already been patented, regardless of what your own research determines. The next step is for your lawyer to submit a patent application...

    Johnny Vazquez and his Brothers...

    ​ Johnny Vazquez is the Salsa Prince all over the WORLD!!! He's an AWESOME guy as well. I've always loved his personality and his absolute professionalism. One of his first nights dancing, was at the Sportsman's Lodge in Los Angeles, his mom was there. She came up to me and asked, "Edie, PLEASE dance with my son." I told her, "I have been!", "No, no, no... not Luis, but my other son, Johnny". I looked over at this "child" trying to lead this poor woman with a scouling face. I asked his mom why, and she responded with hesitation ... "... Look at him....". omg. He...

  • Salsa is a social event

    Salsa is a social event

    Salsa, by it's very nature is a social dance; a social event. We go out to enjoy the music, the club, the movement, our dance partners. So it always saddens me when I see gentlemen out there monopolizing the same lady over several dances. I can understand the pleasure of dancing with an amazing partner, I have my regular partners that I know I can always get a good dance from. But I know that there are always other ladies there that want to dance as well. And the ladies want to dance with other gentlemen too. They like the variety...

  • Creating Something out of Nothing

    Creating Something out of Nothing

    Creating Something
    Out of Nothing...

    By Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!




    Creating something... out of nothing... where nothing existed before... A profound thought came across me while I was driving home tonight with members of the Salsaweb staff and video Advisory Board after our pre-shoot at the television studio. We were JAMMING in the FREAK-Mobile, listening to Celia Cruz sing her fabulous songs, "Bembelequa" and "La Guagua" off her Irrepetible CD. It suddenly occurred to me that as dancers, we design our lives, creating "something", out of "nothing" that existed before. I've noticed that dancers the world over, MAKE SURE they get the most of life, and...
