    "Dear Edie,
    I've got a problem... You see, I'm head over heals for this girl from Puerto Rico, who happens to love Salsa. She also happens to think that dancing like in most American clubs is kinda funny. After going out with friends and seeing Salsa, I have to agree. I grew up in these American clubs and don't know anything about how to dance Salsa. It probably goes without mention that I'd love to dance with her, but as a male lead, dancing with "me", and my not having a clue... well, that's not going to happen. There is no place around here that teaches Salsa (we're in the styx) so where can I learn? Thanks for any help Edie.
    - Clueless but trying."

    Dear Clueless but trying,
    First, read and re- read the following sections here at Dancer Hangout:
    1. "Beginner's Corner".
    2. "Off Beat Support Group"
    3. "Dear Edie.."


    Then, buy the following syllabus DVDs:
    Salsa Syllabus 101-106.

    Meanwhile, find a certified Black Belt Salsa Instructor in your region, open a school (we teach how to do this FROM YOUR GARAGE if you have to ... all the way to running an enormous school with thousands of students)

    If you really want this, (and believe me, after a while YOU WILL GET COMPLETELY HOOKED), I suggest you get your hands on the best Syllabus DVDs you can find (we sell some of the world's BEST instructional dance DVDs on our site here). Study them, and practice them with a friend, mom, sister, dog, whatever.

    Second, go to a Salsa club, find the best dancer there, and ask how much they will charge you for about 10 privates. Take them, pay him, and you'll have the woman of your dreams dancing in your arms, and loving it!

    Who knows, you may like it so much that eventually, you will become SO GOOD, you will end up dancing BETTER than HER, and wind up DUMPING HER for someone else!
    Believe me, I've seen it happen. ... and more than once.

    99.9% of most men start dancing because of a woman.
    • To meet the girl.
    • To get the girl.
    • To win the girl.
    • To be allowed to touch the girl
    • To get BACK the girl.
    • To SURPRISE the girl.
    • To sweat with the girl.
    • To non-verbally express vertically what you want to do horizontally... with the girl.

    For men, trust me, it's all about women... Women... WOMEN!!!

    Feel free to contact any of our instructors at for information / advice / training. They are the COOLEST GROUP OF PEOPLE I've ever met!
    Why? Cuz they just are. .

    Good luck to you my friend

    Happy Dancing!

      Dear Edie,
      First off, let me say that your story on your website really inspired me. I discovered Salsa in college, when my roommate (who was a Salsa nut) wanted someone to go with her. I quickly discovered my limited knowledge of the differences in genre Cumbia, Merengue, Salsa, etc., but also I feel deeply madly in love with the thrill of it. After graduation we both moved on to live outside of

    • Should I Pursue, or Not?
      by ediester
      In this day and age, men are simply clueless when a woman gets turned on by him - especially if he is just simply "doing his own thing" the same way with every girl he dances with. Some women have been so frustrated lately at the "numbness" of the male's "simple-minded creatures" aspect that women have had to resort to simply "blurting out" how they feel, leaving the guys completely dumbfounded as to what is actually happening. And, of course, women now feel like idiots because THEY are...

      by ediester

      Dear Edie,
      Glad to hear your going to do another Salsa Bootcamp before the congress. I've been trying to go to the congress for two years now. Always something coming up; excuses, excuses, excuses. I'm only going to live once so I'm going; even if I have to go by myself! Right now I only have time for classes and private lessons. The projects I'm working on are all in the final integration and test phase so its double and triple shifts. Must eventually get the

      Edie, I hope you remember "Bust my Ass with Class" Mary. You were too kind to print my article about my competition a couple of years ago. During which you were laboring under a double groin pull which I do soooo hope is healed by now! Okay, what follows below is a wonderful letter from a new friend of mine. Oh, as far as publishing this one, maybe no, not without editing (the boyfriend thing) & not without asking her permission but I know you & you would do these things with...

    • The Positive Side of Salsa
      by bcali
      "Dear Edie, Thanks Edie for talking to me about getting started in Salsa. I wish there were more people like you that really promoted the positive side of Salsa. What I have to say is a little commentary about where I see Salsa going. It is very interesting to just study the social scene of Salsa and in particular why oddly enough when I chose a place to live in the next 5 years it will have to be around a place where Salsa is very positive. Before I moved to Colorado, I was in Korea a...
