    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...

    Feet Sore Yet?

    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:


    I’ve seen more dancers with shortened or ruined careers...

  • Those Men Look Like Women on Stage

    Those Men Look Like Women on Stage

    "OK Edie, I just got back from two Salsa Congresses in [city] and [city]. I noticed that most (not all) of the "On-2" routines... well, how can I put this. I'll just say it. OK. All the "On-2" routines, the guys fingers, arm styling, body movements etc., MATCHED THE GIRLS. It looked like a bunch of GIRLS up there, but half of them were MEN!!! What are your thoughts on this? What's up with the men's styling "On-2" lately? I mean, if you take a look at the video,...

    Where There is a Will, There is a Way

    Dear Edie, I love Salsa dancing more than just about anything and hope someday to be able to perform and compete. I am a female musician and have experience in many other kinds of dance including ballet, jazz, modern, Middle Eastern, and Indian classical dance. Whenever I am in my hometown or traveling, I try to take as many classes (usually private) as possible. After finishing school, I'm considering moving to a city where I could find more opportunities for learning Salsa. However, at the...

  • Bad Taste

    Bad Taste

    "Dear Edie, I used to always wear something real "hot" to go dancing. People didn't exactly fall in line to dance with me though, and I figured it was because I'm white and I haven't established myself as a Salsera here in [the city]. One night, a Friday, I was so tired from work that I didn't change for [a hot Salsa club]: I just wore black slacks and a simple, conservative white blouse. I never sat down. So many men asked me to dance! So I've experimented with this and got a lot more co...

  • But I'm Asian

    But I'm Asian

    I enjoy your column. Insightful, humorous and true in many respects. However, I must qualify your statement about Take a Private Lesson to Get Better...when women say no. I believe you are being a bit simplistic in your explanation of what constitutes a no. As in any situation, prejudices abound in some form or another and there may well be other forces at work against you. I know quite a few friends who have been turned down because of the way they look. To some, appearances are the pri

    I have been DYING to do a story about this! I thought I was the only one that did this! I ran into my girlfriend Marla at a Salsa Club Sunday night in Los Angles, and the both of us had been dancing at other clubs and taking various classes that whole day... we saw each other (again) that evening, and started some "girl-talk" on how we changed our outfits between clubs...In the bathroom...

    Raw Nipples

    Dear Edie,
    I really want to thank you Edie. Ever since you gave me your tips on cross dress for Latino men in need of female cross dressing company (wow! now that is a long ass book title if i ever saw one!), i just can't keep the women off of me. I'm so popular at the clubs with my hairy legs exposed that women just trip and go ga-ga over me.

    Though I have a little favor to ask. if I decide not to wear a bra, how can I avoid the soreness due to the rawness

  • How to Find Salsa Clubs

    How to Find Salsa Clubs

    How I find Salsa Clubs out of town...
    By Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!

    Every city I visit I research the Internet for local Salsa clubs. If I can't find any in that town, this is what I do. .... I get online and search for all the local "Mexican Restaurants" - better yet, Cuban and Puerto Rican food, (if there are any..), and give them a call. Then, I ask to speak to a Spanish-speaking waiter. I then stumble through my own Spanish, and ask if he knows of any Salsa Clubs...

    How to Find a Private Lesson Instructor

    "Dear Edie, I am new to Salsa and took three private classes when on vacation in [country], last month. Now that I'm back home here in the (USA) I can't find private instructors outside of (city) area. I called the studios and most want to suck me into their world of group classes etc / contracts, but I work evenings and can't really participate to a large degree in these packages. So, question is, can you recommend private instructors in (city) area? Also about how much do these classes run? I...
