  • Why I Salsa.

    Why I Salsa.



    Why I Salsa.
    By Black Belt Salsa Instructor, and Born-Again Christian, Carlos Colon [2Chor 4:6]“God, who first ordered light to shine in the darkness, has now flooded our hearts with His light. We can now give all men the knowledge of the glory of God as we see it in the face of Christ. [Col 1:28]So, naturally, we proclaim Christ. [1Thess 2:4]We speak under the solemn sense that we have been entrusted by God with the gospel, [Rom 1:16] for we are not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of salvation for those who believe. For non-believers, [Rom 10:14-15] how can they call on one in whom they have not believed? How can they believe in one of whom they have not heard? How can they hear unless someone proclaims Him? This is a set of questions ...

  • Dancing for God

    Dancing for God



    I've noticed that you mention God quite a few times and some Church activity, so I have a question for you:

    I am 18, an active member at my Church, AWANA leader, Sunday school teacher, a helper in the youth group, and the list goes on.

    My situation is, is that I have gotten a lot of negative feed back because if my love of dance. Along with a couple other persons, I was kicked out of a temporary singing group because one of the rules was absolutely no dancing. Something very impossible for me.

    I do use my talents of dancing for God. I have done a lot of dance interpretation for church and related activities. But I also have a great passion for dancing, most importantly for Salsa. I feel great when I dance, I feel happy, I have even started to lose weight since I started to take Salsa lessons.

    Salsa es parte de mi, mi cultura, mi sangre. I just wanted to know if you have been through similar situations and what you think about it. If you have any advice I would greatly appreciate it!"

  • How to Communicate with Dancers

    How to Communicate with Dancers


    By Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!

    When I teach, and/or deal with the public in any way, I think of the Four Standard Personality Types.
    I found that the four books written about Christ's life in the New Testament were written by four entirely different people with completely different personality types.

    I've based the entire Black Belt Dance (BBS) Instructor and Student Training curriculum around those four personality types.
    (SIDE NOTE: In fact, I am a HUGE FAN of Star Trek (the original television series) and created the Dance Business Management (DBM) like Star Fleet Command, and the BBS as the USS Enterprise.
    The Mothership is the Black Belt Dance (BBD), that hosts ALL the partner dances - not just Salsa.) oh... and yes, I am a HUGE believer in extra-terrestrial life (I could care less about UFO's - Frankly, I am more interested in THEM and HOW THEY THINK rather than their "vehicles" ). I've experienced them. There is a connection - an enormous connection between us and them, and Spirituality to say the least. We can't POSSIBLY be the only living beings God created in the Expanse of the Universe He created - how can we limit Him in any way? Before I go on a rant... let me stop with this thought: There is ssssoooo much evidence about life off-planet earth (I'll speak of it later) in both the Old and New Testaments - it is incredible.)


    Why? Because that is how we GET ALONG with others - mirroring THEM like we do when we follow our dance partners!...

    Salsa Cured My Addictions



    "Dear Edie...
    I was just reading through some of your stories, and I stumbled across your Christianity and Salsa section.
    I have to say, that after reading through your words - every one of them resonated with me in every way. Thank you!

    I wanted to open up and let you know that Salsa cured the following for me:

    • I used to smoke - now clubs don't allow smoking, and that is where I spend most of my time, so now I quit smoking.
    • I used to drink - but it inhibited my dancing and spins, and my friends started complaining about my lead,

    Christianity and Salsa???
    By Edie, The Salsa FREAK

    Letter from a Christian Salsero named Josia...
    Hi Edie, just wanted to ask if you are Christian and how I can use Salsa as a means of reaching the world through dance ministry.

    Dear Josia,
    Yes, I do believe that Jesus was God in the flesh, and He is the only way to the Father.
    • John 1:1 - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    • John 1:14 - And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.
    • John 17:11 - And now I am no more in the world,

    Edie's Personal Discovery
    By Edie, The Salsa FREAK* Copyright, 1999 When I was in Israel in 1998, I noticed the peculiar-looking Hebrew writing and alphabet written all over the place.* It was written "backwards" to me.* In other words, the strange symbols were read and written from right to left, instead of left to right, like I'm accustomed to. In Jerusalem, I was impressed at how the stories that I read over the years in countless Bible study courses I've taken, were all coming to life right before my eyes.* The thousands of graves up the Mt. of Olives, the 2nd coming or first coming of Christ (depending on what religion you are...) the fighting over the Temple, the controversy of the rebuilding of the Temple, the strange electric energy in the city, the Via de la Rosa (the path Ch...

  • What if my dancing causes another to stumble?

    What if my dancing causes another to stumble?




    ...then your friend does not belong there with you and they should leave.

    You'll meet them another day.... elsewhere.
    Like any sport, Salsa dancing is not for everyone.

    You can leave with them, but do not let them judge you, lest they be judged.
    The love of music and dance, and the expression of it with you and an awesome dance partner is NOT GIVEN TO EVERYONE by God.

    We all have a purpose and a Mission here on earth - and only God knows how everything is pieced together - to work PERFECTLY for HIS will, and His will, alone.

    Do not even talk...

    Spirit Dance



    A great example of what dance can mean to a man is my friend’s poem


    - Francisco Martinez, born-again christian, husband, father, and AMAZING Salsero...

    Spirit Dance ** ~ By Francisco Martinez
    The leather of his shoes, sharply, caresses the wooden floor as energy speeds his feet through a moment in time. Whoa is he when such electricity hits the air. Mighty eyes watch from above with pleasing compassion, as the worshipping dancer displays his celebration to his Father. Each turn a physical manifestation of praise, each movement a prayer of thanksgiving to the One who, unconditionally, loved him first, and each drumbeat an echo of his passionate heart that shouts "a

    Is Dancing Sinful?

    Dancing Salsa - Is it sinful???? A Biblical Perspective...

    By my Dear Friends, and Brother Sister in the Lord,
    Stacey and Francisco... CHRISTIAN DANCERS AND OWNERS of The "Dance Family" Dance Studio in Pasadena, CA




    Is it sinful to dance Salsa? No! (But there is a disclaimer to add to it)
    We can go to the Bible to understand God’s view on it.

    Francisco and Stacey Martinez Sooooo......... He (God) turns our mourning into dancing! (Ps 30:11) Praise His name with dancing! (Ps 149:3) Praise Him with timbral and dancing! (Ps 150:4) ~ should be timbale, eh? There is a time to mourn ... a time to dance! (Eccles 3:4) David...
