    "Dear Edie,
    I just keep falling in love with everybody I dance with! I can't help it! I go from one person, to the next, then to the next, and it's all in one evening! What should I do??"
    - Hopelessly falling...

    Dear Hopeless,
    "STOP!! STOP!! STOPPPPP!!!!! You are going to get yourself in trouble my friend! Not only that, but you'll start to develop a reputation, and you don't want that! Salsa is a sensual dance. It is a dance that helps you release deep emotions inside. Salsa is one of the few dances where you can truly express your true self and personality through your body... probably the closest thing to sex there is!!

    When you're dancing with someone, and they're holding you in their arms, touching, caressing, grabbing your shoulders and waist, believe me, IT IS AN ABSOLUTE THRILL!!! I know, it's almost like FOREPLAY for crying out loud!!! It's like a BIG TEASE or something!!! But you've got to learn that this is JUST A DANCE, and they will go on to the next person, and the next, just like you will go on. Work on your style, work on your rhythm, keep your mind on the music - not the person so much.

    Dance with as many people as possible. The feelings won't wear off, they'll just be more controlled later on.
    Which means, yes, that's right, you've got to continue !! OH NO!!

    Happy Dancing!
    - Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!

      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...

    • Lower Your Expectations
      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...
