    Never Correct Him, Never Correct Him, NEVER Correct Him. Period.



    "Dear Edie,

    I'm so glad I surfed and surfed the web until I finally found DancerHangout.com! I never knew there was so much information for Salsa freaks like me, by Salsa FREAKS like you. I was reading your "Off beat" letters of concern regarding people who have no rhythm. My story is similar and would like some advice.

    About 2 years ago I began learning Salsa. My boyfriend knew a little more than I did, so we went to a Grupo Niche dance (I'd never heard of the group...

    Where's the Beat?




    "Hi Edie, I've just started to learn Salsa. I think I've managed to learn the basic steps. The 2 big problems I'm having right now which is kinda preventing me from going further are 1. Knowing when to break out 2. Recognizing the beat in the music. I know that you need to keep in tune with the sound of the clave instrument to dance Salsa. But I can't recognize this sound from the rest of the music! Any suggestions? Is there any place on the web or some audio file that has t...

    Just Trying to Help

    "Dear Edie, I have a major problem. My life partner is a competent dancer but lacks confidence and when I try to help her improve we end up having arguments on the dance floor as she claims I'm too much of a perfectionist and that I take it too seriously. I have several female friends with whom I have a good spontaneous rapport on the dance floor where we're able to be really creative, sometimes exciting and even magic. I know my partner would never reach that standard as she is not as addicted...

    "Dear Edie,
    I read your story and found it most interesting because I am in a situation somewhat similar to yours. My partner and I have been dancing Salsa for a little over a year, we have horrible fights. We have participated in local competitions and have won, but I think this is because our audience is mostly anglo. I would like to improve my Salsa dancing but I can't find qualified salsa teachers or professionals in my area, and my partner can't hear the music, I am his ears!
