  • Young Dancers Molested by Dance Instructors

    Young Dancers Molested by Dance Instructors

    "Dear Edie,
    I know a ballroom instructor who had used his position to obtain sex with young girls as young as 17 and 18 and have girls undress for him in the dance studio.
    How do you stop this?" - Appalled


    Dear Appalled,

    You call the police. It is NOT up to you to stop him.
    Let the POLICE conduct a full investigation. NOT YOU.

    Tell the owner / his boss, AFTER you have done the above. If the owner does not fire him on the spot, leave...

    Never Correct Him, Never Correct Him, NEVER Correct Him. Period.



    "Dear Edie,

    I'm so glad I surfed and surfed the web until I finally found DancerHangout.com! I never knew there was so much information for Salsa freaks like me, by Salsa FREAKS like you. I was reading your "Off beat" letters of concern regarding people who have no rhythm. My story is similar and would like some advice.

    About 2 years ago I began learning Salsa. My boyfriend knew a little more than I did, so we went to a Grupo Niche dance (I'd never heard of the group...

    I don't want to be boring


    "But I don't want to be a
    boring dancer to them..."

    - from a Budding Salsero
    By Edie, The Salsa FREAK

    Some men have a "list" of female dancers they only dream about asking "some day".

    Gentlemen, if you want to improve,
    you've got to swallow your pride,
    and just ask high-caliber females to dance once in a while.

    They won't bite you.
    To get better, on occasion, you've got to practice with some of the best...

    Edie's Thoughts...
    I've spoken, and "typed" to tons of people about the competition. I could write for hours and hours about all the stories both good and bad,coming in right and left about this contest. But first of all, let me say from what I've been told and what I've seen, that the Los Angeles Mayan Salsa Competition is the most glamorous, most prestigious Salsa compe...

    Creating Something
    Out of Nothing...

    By Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!




    Creating something... out of nothing... where nothing existed before... A profound thought came across me while I was driving home tonight with members of the Salsaweb staff and video Advisory Board after our pre-shoot at the television studio. We were JAMMING in the FREAK-Mobile, listening to Celia Cruz sing her fabulous songs, "Bembelequa" and "La Guagua" off her Irrepetible CD. It suddenly o...

    Dear Edie,
    Do you think there is a difference between what you do and what you normally see from people with ballroom dance training (especially on shows like Dancing with the Stars, etc.)? If so, how would you explain that difference?

    "Dear Edie, I have a situation. I had a dance recently with a woman and we were doing great on the dancefloor until she started "re-affirming" what I was doing, and asking if she did this right, did that right... it was like, "Was I supposed to turn there?.... Did I do too many turns? .... Am I supposed to go left, right... did I step back ok...???" OMG... BY THE END OF THE DANC...

    By Edie, The Salsa FREAK SPENCO Inserts... A Dancers DREAM!!!

    Throughout my years of dancing BLISS,
    I’ve experienced virtually every type of foot, knee and hip problem imaginable.

    Because dancing is not only my passion, but also my profession,
    I decided to get serious about taking care of the most important tool of my trade:

  • The Beautiful Woman Buried Deep Inside of Me

    The Beautiful Woman Buried Deep Inside of Me

    I am not a dancer. I don't have the body for it. I don't have the coordination for it. I don't have the grace for it. But circumstances landed me among Latinos who danced. One said to me that it was "algo de la sangre".. something in the blood, and that I just didn't have it. I tried anyway, but I lacked the basic belief that I would ever overcome the limitations that came with my body. After taking many classes and workshops and lessons, I still wasn't much better at Salsa. I got...
