    When we start learning Salsa, our lives tend to get off balance a bit - a tad off-kilter... a little "off" - TO SAY THE LEAST.

    Finding the balance between life and Salsa can get scewed QUITE A BIT to feel somewhat "off-center".

    If you are a believer, don't forget Who is "allowing you" to be healthy and love this process.

    Don't forget "The Power" from above that gave you the "Desire in your Heart (Psalms)" for this incredible dance.

    You obviously need it.
    God created dance.
    God created music
    God created our bodies
    God created Salsa
    God created love, and joy, and bliss... so it's OBVIOUS we can CELEBRATE our love for Him by dancing!!!

    However, anything done to excess is not recommended.
    If you're a triple Type A personality, a bit on the "goal-achiever" side, things can get a bit out-of-hand, but HEY... WE ARE HUMAN and somehow make things work out for the better... ALWAYS!!

    Here is a little something to keep you "centered" and balanced during those times when you logically know that you "probably should stay home and get some rest tonight".
    A healing may need to take place.
    An "alertness" at your job may be necessary in the morning. You just never know.

    So when you feel like your friends and YOU are saying, "GO GO GO!!!", but deep inside there is a still small voice telling you need some "centering", read this:

    The Center of the Bible

    This is pretty strange or odd how it worked out this way.
    Even if you are not religious you should read this.

    What is the shortest chapter in the Bible?

    Answer - Psalms 117

    What is the longest chapter in the Bible?

    Answer - Psalms 119

    Which chapter is in the center of the Bible?

    Answer - Psalms 118

    Fact: There are 594 chapters before Psalms 118

    Fact: There are 594 chapters after Psalms 118

    Add these numbers up and you get 1188.

    What is the center verse in the Bible?

    Answer - Psalms 118:8

    Does this verse say something significant about God's perfect will for our lives?
    The next time a dancer friend of yours says they would like to find God's perfect will for their lives and that they want to be in the center of His will, just send them to the center of His Word!

    Psalms 118:8 (NKJV) -- "It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man."

    Now isn't that odd how this worked out (or was God in the center of it)?

    Next time you're getting ready to go out for the evening, check to see if you're tired, or not 100%. Why are you REALLY going? Do you think you'll feel better after you get to the club? Is because of that special someone or something you need? Is it a fix you need satisfying for a while?

    Where there is doubt, go back to the Center, and ask the question of your Father.
    If deep inside, you feel you shouldn't go, then there is a reason.

    If deep inside, you REALLY WANT TO GO DANCING, then go and HAVE A BLAST!!! There must be some sort of healing or therapy that He will provide to you on that dance floor!!!
    I've shared my Faith, and have have brought half a dozen people to the Lord in the Salsa Club restrooms of the world! Those people were hurting for some reason, and God positioned me in the perfect spot and time to be "there" for them, right there in the bathroom of the nightclub. The Lord operates in VERY MYSTERIOUS WAYS.

    Remember, God will grant you the desires of your heart. And if it's going out dancing... THEN DO IT!!!! Celebrate the LIFE that God has GIVEN TO YOU!! Thank Him for his incredible Gift!!!


    - Happy Dancing!

      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.

    • How to Communicate with Dancers
      by ediester

      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.

      by ediester

      "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.

      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.
