    So you're dancing up a STORM with that FAVORITE dance partner you CANNOT WAIT TO DANCE and get your "Salsa FIX" WITH.

    Things get hot and heavy... sweat starts poring down the both of you.
    You get close... intimately close.

    You feel the pulse of the music... she feels it too.

    You let the music take you closer and closer together.
    You are now both ONE with the music... it's better than ANY SEX you've EVER HAD.... BUT YOU REMAIN VERTICLE AND THERE IS NO WET SPOT OTHER THAN THE SWEAT FROM YOUR BROWS...

    Did you think bad thoughts? "no".
    Did you think about sex? "no".
    Did you think you just want to rip each other's clothes off and have at it? "no".

    "We were just dancing, enjoying the music, each other, and together."

    - God made music
    - God made dance.
    - God made the both of you
    - God created your love for the music and dance
    - God made her body for him,
    - God made his body for her.
    - God made our bodies "flexible, movable, and enjoyable".
    - God created all things, so He created Salsa Clubs, bands, sound, speakers, dance floors... all that.

    So I ask .... is all what God has created morally WRONG??? Based on ... what? Based on what the church says is wrong, or what God says is wrong?

    Truly, what is in your heart? "They" won't believe you if "THEY" don't DANCE, nor understand the BLOOD, SWEAT, TEARS AND YEARS IT TOOK to get you to a certain level of dance, and that you are there at a "sinful nightclub" simply for the ENJOYMENT of dancing - NOT TO GET LAID.

    TRUE Dancers...
    • don't do drugs,
    • don't smoke,
    • don't drink,
    • aren't addicted to porn,
    • don't steal, rob, murder NONE OF THAT.


    True dancers don't dance because they WANT to, but because THEY "HAVE TO".

    Consider "WHO" IS JUDGING YOU by pointing their finger at you without looking at his/her own life and pointing three fingers BACK at themselves?
    Are they envious because you are so "Damn Happy Now" and THEY ARE STILL WALLOWING IN THEIR OWN S___ ....SORROWS?

    If you dance for the pure love and joy of dancing with a WONDERFUL dance partner that is doing the same, THERE IS NOTHING MORALLY WRONG WITH THAT.

    We as his children and take ANYTHING He made and use it both for "good" and/or "bad". It's simply a matter of WHERE OUR HEAD IS AT. (thoughts)
    When we have God in our hearts, and truly want to express our joy and love of the Life that He has Given to us because He loves us, then so be it. EXPRESS IT!!! WITH PURITY IN YOUR HEARTS!!!!
    It all starts with what is floating around in your head.

    "Well, Edie, maybe I should just stay home then..."
    ... and do what? go back to your Porn addiction ... because "NO ONE IS WATCHING" ... ?

    Frankly, I'd rather dance Salsa all night until I am dead-beat exhausted than think up some other addiction that I can do when NO ONE IS WATCHING.
    To me, THAT is more detrimental to one's Soul.

    If you find yourself falling in the Lust of the dance, consider that this partner just may be "The One" He wants you to have for your own. Where else will you meet that special person you want to spend the rest of your days DANCING with???? Hm? Where else are you going to find that special person who will allow you to enjoy this wonderful dance with other dance partners as well?

    Search for the purity in your heart. If your heart is full of God, and his Purity, then THROW DOWN OUT THERE!!! You just may be the ONLY Light in the darkness of the Nightclub - God works in mysterious ways... Jesus Himself did not only hang out WITH OTHER CHRISTIANS - he was amongst the thieves, tax collectors, prostitutes and liars. YOU may be the ONLY way in which people at nightclubs can find the Light - the Light that is there in you.

    I leave you with this verse from my Favorite Book in the entire Word of God: Ephesians - have you REALLY SAT DOWN and read it? It is unbelievably ASTOUNDING!!! Edie's all-time favorite book. .
    "Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able
    to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
    Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and
    having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having
    shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace;
    besides all these, taking the shield of faith, with which you
    can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. And take the
    helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the
    word of God."
    Ephesians 6:13-17

    - Happy Dancing!

    • 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.

      "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.

      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.
