    When you're dancing with someone who smokes, and you don't, or, you are a smoker and are dancing with a non-smoker, this is what you do.

    If you are a smoker:
    5 seconds before you get up to dance:
    • 1st Put out your cigarette in an ash tray- do not carry it to the dance floor, drop it out there, then step on it to put it out. Number one, this shows you have no class, and second, you, your partner, or others may accidentally step on it and slip and fall.
    • 2nd Take a swig of anything liquid nearby. Swish it around in your gums and around your tongue to get rid of that "ashtray" stench. Unless you're carrying a spittoon, you'll have to swallow it.
    • 3rd Quickly stick a piece of mints or gum in your mouth, then spray three shots of breath freshener in your mouth.
    • 4th Inhale through your mouth to "re-freshen" your lungs. You see, in Salsa, because you are so close to your partner's face,
      ... you may not realize that your partner actually breathes in as you exhale out.

    - This is a fact.



    If you are a Non-smoker:
    And realize thru your nostrils, that your partner is a smoker:

    • 1st Be polite. Finish the song. Then after the song, quietly pull them aside, whisper ever so gently in their ear... "YOUR BREATH SMELLS LIKE SMOKE."
    • 2nd Offer him/her some gum, or breath fresheners (if you have any) If you don't, shrug your shoulders, point to the bar, and say with a smile, very politely, "You know what? They have water at the bar, you can rinse out there." Smile, then leave it at that.
    • 3rd Offer them some of your own water or drink, or buy them something to rinse their mouth out.
    • 4th Always, always, be polite, caring, smiley, and friendly. There is nothing worse, than pissing off a smoker.







    Happy Dancing!

      Bathroom / WC / Toilette Conversations

      “Ya’ know… he used to be a great lead. What Happened to That Guy?

      It’s amazing what you hear when you’re in the restroom (WC/toilet) of a nightclub.
      ... If only the opposite sex could hear some of the whispering conversations in there

      About Last Night ...

      I was at a local nightclub here in [city], and I recognized a gentleman that I remember dancing with about a year ago. I remembered how fabulous of a lead he was. I remembered his easy-to-follow turn patterns, combinations, and style. He made me feel like a million dollars out there. I remember him making me feel sexy. I remember him making me feel like a woman....

      As I was writing this article, I was discussing the subject with a very good friend of mine from New York named Manny Siverio.
      He told me something very simple, yet VERY profound.

      "You know Edie, for a relationship to really work, we have to become happy, complete, and One with ourselves first. You take that "One", whole person, pair them up with another "whole" person, and One times One is One. Together they would become One. comfortable with...

      LA Style Salsa...
      How it started... Part 1 of 10...

      Conversation started today:

      Hello Edie. My name is Amnon Willinger, and I'm a Salsa dancer and instructor from Israel.
      I am currently doing some personal research on the evolution of Salsa music and dancing and I was wondering if I can ask you a few questions, as you are one of the most experienced and known Salsa dancers in the world.

      Assuming this message won't get lost in facebook's spam section, I will be very grateful for your help.


      Edie: Sure! What would you like to know?


      Amnon Willinger I am familiar with the annual Salsa Competitions (started in the late 90s) in LA which contributed to the popul...

      THE DRESS DEVIL Special thanks to Yohay Aharon for submitting this.. It is Saturday night or any other evening wear your Salsa virus is taking over your mind, body, and soul. You are going to a club where you know there is a good music, dance floor and beautiful ladies. You are going to enjoy a great night of Salsa dancing! The band is playing Frankie Ruiz’s "Puerto Rico" and you are scanning the area for the prefect dance partner. You finally lay your eyes on a beautiful, well dressed lady who waits for someone to ask her to dance. You approach her very gently and ask her for the dance. She, of course, cannot resist your charm and lets you lead her to the dance floor. You're already scheming and planning in your brilliant salsa mind all your slick dance moves -...

    • Get out of my FACE!!!
      ediester
      You know, you're having a great time dancing with a guy, and suddenly all you see is his FACE in YOURS, about 2 centimeters away??? (If you've been out enough, we've ALL run into this at one point or another....) Then, if he talks to you, you can literally feel his SPIT splatter all over your face!! YUCK!! At first, you think to yourself, "Well, it was just a slip, maybe he lost balance.. whatever...no big deal" BUT. He does it again, and again, and AGAIN, and it's almost as if he wants to kiss you every other turn!!! If you're NOT at all attracted to this guy (and even if you were...), you're thinking to yourself, "WHOA! Stay back!!! What are you doing?" OK Guy...
