    Buy your dance clothes at vintage and thrift stores and cut, sew, sequence, and fringe them up!
    Your dresses will get TRASHED anyway, so why ruin something expensive?

    It's so dark in most clubs anyway, that no one will be able to tell the difference!

    Happy Dancing!

      New dress finding info from a fellow Cyber-Salsera!
      "Edie: I went looking for dance stuff today and ended up at the Capezio company store. I thought of you because you had mentioned that were looking for more dance clothes.

      They had demo dance "costumes" for sale for $25. I don't know if you're into to those (they're not my personal favorites), but they are made of spandex and sequins, basically. They also had more subdued outfits -- cool-looking leotards and little sheer wrap skirts, matching flare leg pants and flare arm bare-waist, tie tops in panne velvet, catsuits, etc. These were more expensive (between $30-$50/piece), but I believe they were all machine washable.

      My personal favorite is Ross. I usually buy dresses for $15.

      Today I bought a bright red, satin flare dress, sleeveless -- for that much...."

  • It's TOO Crowded!
    by ediester

    "Edie, one thing I did want to ask you is how do you dance on a crowded floor? I know you mentioned to keep your feet on the ground, but I honestly don't like being crowded. You really can't do the moves without hitting somebody!" That's why I said "Salsa is a CONTACT SPORT". In all my life, I have NEVER received so many bruises from accidental hits in ANY SPORT. I can't even remember getting this banged up rough-housing and wrestling with my little brother when we were kids! What'...

  • Drinking and Dancing
    by ediester

    Don't drink too much alcohol (or preferably non at all) while dancing.
    Hard-core serious dancers can't stand dancing with someone intoxicated.

    • This screws up your lead.
    • This screws up your follow.
    • This messes up your balance,
    • ... messes up your spinning.
    • ... destroys your career,
    • ... destroys your relationships,
    • ... makes everyone you come in contact with ... utterly miserable.

    • I rub my hands very rapidly together, like I'm freezing.
    • I also chew gum.
    • drink water.
    • stop at an all-night convenience store to buy coffee (at 2:30am.
    • pull over and take a 15 minute nap.
    • bang your head against the window.
