    "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 and Arizona before that The Salsa scene in both Tucson, Arizona and Korea is such a treat to be around because there are no cliques and if there are they do not preclude people from dancing from one another. In order for Salsa to grow you almost have to have a community of dancers who are willing to dance with everybody. I will be the first one to admit that I have had my share of people who I did not want to dance with and some for good reasons but for others were for not good reasons. I noticed that in some places the dancers look at themselves as exclusive and not part of a community. That is where we as dancers need to stop that negative trend.

    I am so glad that you are really bringing out the importance of Salsa as being fun and not excluding everyone. Edie you are in my prayers and I look forward to you bringing Salsa not only to a technical dance level but also the importance of maintaining the positive social level which is what Salsa is all about. When I first started dancing I would always brag to my friends how I never saw a fight or a dispute at a Salsa club because of the positive atmosphere that is inherent to Salsa dancers.

    God Bless You Edie

      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 that world, but deep down I find myself missing Salsa and missing dancing. So here's my dilemma. I have been blessed to have found wonderfully imperfect man with whom to spend the rest of my life with. The only problem is he doesn't dance. BUT, I know he w

    • Should I Pursue, or Not?
      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 the ones pursuing the man, and no longer the other way around. This makes men the weaker of the two. Not a very comforting feeling for ANY woman to put up with for very long. ...

      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 birds on orbit for the Air Force. You know the drill after having worked at Aerospace. I read you bio; quite a story!

      Yes, I'm still with her and its one big mistake. I really and truly wanted to

      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 without me having said anything. What I had in mind instead was simply (if you could) to let me know the next time you are in Sacramento maybe like you did that one time where you...
