    "Dear Edie,
    My friend and I have a long-running competition for the number of different women we can dance with in a single evening. The rules are that it has to be a partner dance (eg. Salsa, Merengue, Cha Cha, etc.) and you have to dance the whole dance except for a small allowance for changing partners between records. The record used to be 22 which I held for about a year but at a recent function I managed 30. My friend danced all night and only managed 21 because he was too polite to say no to his favorite partners after he had danced with them once. Have you heard of anyone else (male or female) who has kept a count or should we be regarded as sick individuals who use women for our own purposes then immediately cast them aside to look for someone else?

    Dear Sick Individual,
    No, I don't think you're sick, just a little bloody MAD, that's all! You Brits just CRACK ME UP!!! You're RIOTS! I cannot WAIT till you come back to LA - and bring your friend with you! I haven't heard of such a competition, as you have explained, but my friend, I believe that 30 women in one night would even set a record at the Los Angeles Mayan, where 1000 of the 2000 people are women! I don't even think I've EVER danced with that many different men in one evening... sure have come close though!!

    Keep up the good work my friend. You're not sick, and you're not using women - just having the time of your life!!!

    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...

      Dearest Edie, I have one question and although I suppose they send you hundreds of messages and you don't have time to answer them all,I will ask anyhow...My question is this: is copa a position or all the procedure to bring the lady inside and then take her out again?Is it called ''in and out'' unofficially because most of the t...

      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
