    How World Champions use "The Zone"


    "Dear Edie, We are getting ready for the World Salsa Championships in Europe. We have our doubts - because everyone is so good. The rehearsals are agony, and we are struggling with our choreography. It seems we cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel. The entire preparation is a slow and painful process. Last week, we both just wanted to quit. I'm beginning to wonder if we...

    Edie, It was fun getting to spend time with you this weekend. Enio and I work and travel so much that I rarely get to spend time talking to another girl. We have made the decision to not travel quite so much and therefore I look forward to getting to spend more time visiting. We both look forward to working with you more in the future. Below is the article that I wrote. I warne...

    Edie's Thoughts...
    I've spoken, and "typed" to tons of people about the competition. I could write for hours and hours about all the stories both good and bad,coming in right and left about this contest. But first of all, let me say from what I've been told and what I've seen, that the Los Angeles Mayan Salsa Competition is the most glamorous, most prestigious Salsa compe...

    My Most Memorable Competition
    - By Edie, The Salsa FREAK!! From downstairs in the basement of the Mayan Nightclub in Los Angeles, you can faintly hear the music upstairs, muffled, but still loud and electrifying. You feel the distant pulse of the music run through your body and magically into your heart. You're with all the other competitors now. You look at the number you've drawn from that jar. It's the number you were destined to have - the order in which you're about to da...

    Dear Edie,
    Do you think there is a difference between what you do and what you normally see from people with ballroom dance training (especially on shows like Dancing with the Stars, etc.)? If so, how would you explain that difference?

    Hi Edie! I just had to write and tell you about the experience I had the other night at a local club here in [city]. This club has a Salsa contest every Thursday night with a prize of $250 dollars, which is not much, but it serves for some good party money! Anyway, we decided to go that night and one of my dance partners (I always dance with my husband and a mutual friend) asked me if I would get in the contest with him. I said "sure, why not. Since the prize is nothing rea...
