    "Dear Edie,
    I've seen you out dancing, and you are quite a site to watch. Where do you buy your clothes??
    I've searched so many places, and cannot find good "Salsa" clothing.
    I'll want to go out some nights and won't have anything to wear!!"
    - Naked

    Dear Naked,
    I buy a lot of my clothing from Thrift stores believe it or not. You would not believe what people throw away! I mean, I've even found stuff with the tag still attached to it!* I guess some people just don't like what they bought, or they lost a ton of weight, or gained a ton, or just DIED...and left ME with all their great clothing!! This is true. If I see something I like, I just cut it, fix it up, sequence it, sew it, and voila! Instant dance wear!

    They have some of the COOLEST outfits!* I also shop at Venice Beach and swimsuit places. One-piece swimsuits make a great "shirt" under a flare skirt!! Plus you get the added benefit of not needing a bra, and automatic underwear that MATCHES!!!

    I do A TON of shopping at the downtown Los Angeles Garment District. You can find the most amazing nightclub clothing there for SUPER CHEAP.

    If you have the opportunity to shop in Milan, Italy, you will have died and gone to heaven! Milan has the absolute BEST CLOTHING for both men and women! In fact, the guys are better to look at than the women's styles at most congresses all over Italy! The men look incredible!

    Happy Dancing!

      "But I don't want to be a
      boring dancer to them..."

      - from a Budding Salsero
      By Edie, The Salsa FREAK

      Some men have a "list" of female dancers they only dream about asking "some day".

      Gentlemen, if you want to improve,
      you've got to swallow your pride,
      and just ask high-caliber females to dance once in a while.

      They won't bite you.
      To get better, on occasion, you've got to practice with some of the best...

      She Talks Waaaaaaayyyy Too Much!!
      By Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!

      "Dear Edie, I have a situation. I had a dance recently with a woman and we were doing great on the dancefloor until she started "re-affirming" what I was doing, and asking if she did this right, did that right... it was like, "Was I supposed to turn there?.... Did I do too many turns? .... Am I supposed to go left, right... did I step back ok...???" OMG... BY THE END OF THE DANC...

    • High Heels are Killing Me
      by ediester

      Dear Edie I live in on the east coast and have followed your articles for years. You are a great inspiration to me. I have a nagging question and just know you are the one to ask. I am 41 years old and a pretty good dancer. I practice all the time. I STUDY dancing...videos, you tube, performances, classes, private lessons, etc. But you know what - my dancing SUCKS (well maybe doesn't suck, but is nowhere near as good) in HIGH heels. I have no fun. I can't spin as wel...

    • Addicted to a Salera's Smile
      by ediester
      "Dear Edie, I’m just writing to say hello. I will start by saying what I’m sure hundreds of others have already said: in your brilliant writing you make yourself so plainly understood and convey the complex and wonderful joy of the Salsa experience so clearly that it’s hard not to think of you as an old friend. :-) But I will add this. Although I am a man I am a feminist, and although I work with computers for a living I hate browsing the web. I know you have a strong ...

    • The Feminist Salsera
      by ediester

      "Dear Edie,
      I first would like to thank you for an incredible website. However, I have been frequently disappointed by your articles concerning feminism. I have always believed, and I think most feminists and dictionaries would agree with me that a feminist is a person who believes in equality between men and women. Male-bashing does not fit this description because feminism's goal is not to put down either sex. To me dancing is a great metaphor for feminism because in dancing both
