    By Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!

    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...

    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...

    Horrible Terrible MP3 Music

    Dear Edie, I was at the ’03 SF Congress this last weekend and I believe I’ve had my fill of bad horrible terrible MP3 music used on performer’s routines. Here’s what I have to say about it…maybe you could post this so anyone coming up will take your thoughts into consideration when selecting the source of their music! BTW, I have never heard any of your routines reflect this MP3’age of routine music, yours is always top-notch! Thanks, -Max N...

  • Where's the Beat?

    Where's the Beat?

    "Hi Edie, I've just started to learn Salsa. I think I've managed to learn the basic steps. The 2 big problems I'm having right now which is kinda preventing me from going further are 1. Knowing when to break out 2. Recognizing the beat in the music. I know that you need to keep in tune with the sound of the clave instrument to dance Salsa. But I can't recognize this sound from the rest of the music! Any suggestions? Is there any place on the web or some audio file that has t...

  • Dis-Enchanted


    "Dear Edie, I had a question about how you approach the dance as you become more proficient in your dancing. If you want to put this in one of your columns, feel free. Just leave my name off. Before I get, started, I want to say that I love dancing with all levels of dancers. I'm not becoming a snob.* I've been hitting the clubs at least four times a week. Since I joined the [Salsa dance company], and started helping teach some of the leader's classes, I'm finding: 1. That the music that the...

    The Short Italian

    "Dear Edie, I'll try to write you at my best, but please excuse me for my bad english (I'm not American). I need some advice from you. I've recently discovered the "Salsa World" and I have immediately fell in love with it. I started going in the nightclubs and dancing. I'm also taking a group class, but I'm not satisfied. I know that I need some private lessons, but in Italy teachers do only group classes. I think Salsa is getting in fashion here but, up to now, I haven't found a very good danci...

    Good Music

    "Dear Edie,
    Can you recommend some good Salsa and cha-cha-cha music for me? I want to start building up my collection and am not sure where to begin."
    - Newbee
    Dear Newbee, The absolute BEST place to get great club music, whether Salsa or Cha Cha is directly from the DJs. They're wonderful to work with (most of them), and will make you custom tapes with their favorite cha chas and Salsas for you. I used to spend so much money on CD's, and only find one or two g...

  • Do Whatever It Takes

    Do Whatever It Takes

    Dear Salsa Freak, I have just started private Salsa lessons. The challenge I am having is that my wife is now quite an accomplished dancer. The truth is that I just took two classes with her when she started about two years ago, she begged me to go, but because I didn't like "Salsa" at the time, I quit, and told her never to invite me to a club, because I didn't like the "scene". Well, now I never see her anymore, we're having problems, and I thought I may need to start taking a few Salsa lesso...

    He's Off Time!!!

    "Dear Edie,
    I'm so glad I surfed and surfed the web until I finally found the Dancer Hangout! 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 at th

    Rhythmically Challenged

    "Dear Edie,
    I read your story and found it most interesting because I am in a situation somewhat similar to yours. My partner and I have been dancing Salsa for a little over a year, we have horrible fights. We have participated in local competitions and have won, but I think this is because our audience is mostly anglo. I would like to improve my Salsa dancing but I can't find qualified salsa teachers or professionals in my area, and my partner can't hear the music, I am his ears!

    Support Clubs That Play Live Music!
    Support your local bands!
    By Benjamin Rapoport If you are one of the fortunate people in the world that enjoy and are able to listen and dance to a live Salsa band, you are more fortunate then you may realize. Those of you who have danced to live music know the difference. The energy and excitement when listening to horns, congas, violins, live. The bands play off the energy of the crowd and vice versa. Nothing comes close to ...
