    "Dear Edie,
    What do you think about the following? Most guys that are taking the Salsa class with me don't feel comfortable (or confident) to ask "good" dancers to dance with them because if a guy makes (a) mistake(s) the good dancer won't dance with them again. I think we are perhaps intermediate dancers, but to become good ones we have to dance with the good dancers, but it is like a catch 20/20? I know that you can take private lessons (which I am seriously considering). Do you have any other suggestions? I try to practice whenever I can and have fun at the same time with my female classmates.

    Dear Scared Spitless,
    If you feel strongly this way, then my suggestion to you is to take as many private lessons as you can until you feel confident enough and comfortable enough to ask a good dancer to dance.

    These gals will not mind. Everybody screws up on occasion. Just don't make it a habit...

    Happy Dancing!

    • The Beautiful Woman Buried Deep Inside of Me
      by ediester
      I am not a dancer. I don't have the body for it. I don't have the coordination for it. I don't have the grace for it. But circumstances landed me among Latinos who danced. One said to me that it was "algo de la sangre".. something in the blood, and that I just didn't have it. I tried anyway, but I lacked the basic belief that I would ever overcome the limitations that came with my body. After taking many classes and workshops and lessons, I still wasn't much better at Salsa. I got...

    • Where to Practice?
      by ediester


      "Hi, Edie
      Could you please direct me? I have just found a partner and we are trying to figure out where we could practice Salsa. What's our best bet? Clubs may not be very conducive for practices, and dance floors may be very expensive (or not?) I live and work in Stamford, CT and she lives in Brooklyn and works in Manhattan. Thank you for your help, regards
      ... Looking for a place to practice!!! "
      Dear Looking... You can rent space per hour at a dance studio, or if you...

      "Dear Edie,
      I am not exaggerating when I say I spend 10-15 minutes on-line at a time just to get mail etc. but when my curiosity took over and I started reading about you and your dancing tips and everything I was truly astounded! You are really in tune with the people. I spent over an hour on the Dancer Hangout site, which is unheard of for me, fully enjoying every minute of it! I live and breath Salsa myself and recently found a partner through the partner search in my area

      Take Private Lessons to Get Better!


      You're at a Salsa club, you ask someone to dance, and they say... "Uh... No..., thank you."

      It DOES NOT mean the following:
      • You're ugly
      • You smell bad
      • You're too short
      • You're too fat / tall / skinny / etc...


      It just may mean that you don't lead very well (if you're a guy), or you are too crazy out there to let them control you (if you're a woman) My advice to ANYONE who goes out partner...
