    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 time to mourn and a time to dance!"

    As the crescendo of the music approaches, the
    sweat of the warrior blinds his eyes, and he is
    reminded that the falling of the rain is in the rhythm
    of his life and the mighty wind the force of his dance.

    He leaps upon each note as he spins about his
    canvas; painting his love, frustration and sorrow
    with deliberate yet intensely powerful
    brushstrokes. His eternal salvation, boldly
    stamped upon it, as the signature to his work, by
    the grace of his Almighty Father’s own hand.

    He ends on his knees, humbled by the sight of the
    cross, to "fight the good fight." The music,
    softly, plays on... only now to an angelical choir of praise.

    - Francisco Martinez

      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.

    • Dancing for God
      by ediester

      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...

    • 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.

    • Salsa Cured My Addictions
      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.
