    "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, so I quit drinking.
    • I was addicted to porn - but I started spending so much time at Salsa clubs, I would come home trashed and had zero energy to spend time on the Internet - no more interest. (the real thing is FAR better).
    • I got rid of my occasional drug habit - I'm now spending my money on gas and getting into Salsa clubs and buying water just to keep going!


    Yes, I am a former Jew, but now I have NO CLUE what I believe other than if there "is" a God, He created Salsa to eliminate the habits I was doing by myself IN THE DARK. (as if God couldn't see... come on)

    I love to dance now, I love the challenge of all these insane moves. I love meeting new people now, makeing new friends, and just simply CELEBRATING MY LIFE again - I feel like God has given me a second chance at "living" again.

    I shudder to think what would have become of me if I had not started dancing Salsa.

    "Thank you God... for saving me with Salsa". And thank YOU Edie, for being honest, showing no fear, and wearing your heart on your sleeve, oh, and for the Dancer Hangout.

    - J.H. New York City Salsero

    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 o...

  • 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...

    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.

    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.

    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 ...
