    Slow Dance



    Slow Dance
    Author Unknown Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground? Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight Or gazed at the sun into the fading night? You better slow down Don't dance so fast Time is short The music won't last Do you run through each day on the fly When you ask "How are you?" do you hear the reply? When the day is done, do you lie in your bed With the next hundred chores running through your head? You'd better slow down Don't dance so fast Time is short The music won't last Ever told your child, We'll do it tomorrow And in your haste, not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch, Let a good friendship die 'Cause you never had time to call and say "Hi"? ...

    Blaming Each Other


    What Do You Do... when your dance partner is your significant other, and you both screw up your routine on stage?
    by Edie, The Salsa FREAK

    The first natural impulse is to blurt out the word “YOU…” before all the other words that come vomiting out of your mouth. “What happened???” is another good one that always starts the fire ablaze. “WHAT WERE Y0U THINKING???” is priceless. That will leave the both of you sleeping on the seam of the mattress for a couple nights. “What the $#@&… went wrong…“ among all the other profanities human kind has...

    The Great Dancers Don't Date in the Salsa Scene Anymore


    Why is it that Guys in the Salsa Scene Just Don't Seem to be "Interested" in Dating?
    By Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!

    "Dear Edie, I'm a woman, and go out dancing all the time. I meet a lot of great people (men) but it's been several months now, and not a single one of them has asked me out... I'm not that bad looking, have even been told that I'm a "looker", and "outside" the Salsa scene I have no problem dating men. But I'm finding that in the Salsa scene, all these great guys want to do is..."DANCE". This strikes me as COMPLETELY ODD. As a woman, I'm not used to... well, being ignored. I've NEVER had a problem attracting men. Ever. It seems like these great dancers get to the clubs, dance with all the girls... THEN THEY LEAVE!! Even if I approach them and show interest... they are OUT THE DOOR. I had a couple "one night stands", but I want something more meaningful - so...

  • Breaking Up

    Breaking Up

    He may HATE YOU
    at first, but he will Respect you later ...

    "Dear Edie,
    I need to break up with my boyfriend. But I don't want to tell him I'm already seeing someone else. I just want to break up. It seems like every time we break up, he always somehow creeps into my life again. We keep breaking up, then getting back together, then breaking up, then getting back together. When I see him at Salsa clubs, I just don't know what to do.

    "Pete and Carmen's Salsa Dance Academy, Fresno, CA"


    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...

  • The Positive Side of Salsa
    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 and Arizona before that The Salsa scene in both Tucson, Arizona and K...
