    Controversial Moves, Controversial Contests

    Edie, It was fun getting to spend time with you this weekend. Enio and I work and travel so much that I rarely get to spend time talking to another girl. We have made the decision to not travel quite so much and therefore I look forward to getting to spend more time visiting. We both look forward to working with you more in the future. Below is the article that I wrote. I warne...

    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...

    Ballroom Mambo vs Salsa Nightclub Style - WTF?


    by Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!

    I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.
    - George Bernard Shaw





    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?

  • 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...

    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,...

    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...

    Too Stiff


    "Dear Edie,
    I am from [country], and I love doing the Salsa. I have been learning by going to clubs since about May of 1997. I'm just gonna cut right to the chase. I love doing the Salsa, right, but I have some problems with the way I dance....My favorite dancing partner tells me that I really need to loosen up, that I am too tense and that I dont move my hips enough. I know he is right. Suggestions?
    - Stiff"
    Dear Stiff, Your makeup, in other words, the way God made you, may...

    Ladies, Let's Start a Revolution!
    by Edie, The Salsa FREAK After giving a small women's styling workshop to a group of four women in Mountainview, CA, I've come to realize that knowing how to walk, sit, stand, and dance "sensually" is not something most of us were born with. If we've never had ballet training growing up, and unless we have role models, we basically fumble around out there on the dancefloor and "try" to look good, with very little luck. It's not until we've s...

    Is Ladies Styling a Sin?



    The Controversy of Ladies Styling Classes taught by a Born-Again Christian, Edie, The Salsa FREAK:

    "Edie, how can you teach Sexy Ladies Styling if you're a Christian???"


    I often tell my fellow Christian sisters about the beautiful story of Esther in the Bible. If my religious sisters have a problem with looking attractive, or learning female styling techniques to make them look more attractive on the dance floor, I am here to remind them that -...

    I was working with a small group of students the other day, and was getting two of the guys to show me a really cool move called the “S - Move“. It is a very simple, but FANTASTIC-feeling move that can really get screwed up if you don”t lead it correctly.

    Both of these guys had COMPLETELY different styles, and both of them had superb leads. One was more...
