Time to Take a Dance Class

I saw this article and it totally spoke to me. As a matter of fact, the first paragraph sounds like conversations that I’ve had almost word for word:

It’s a paradox, but as a fitness and dance instructor, I don’t get many chances to take a class. When I teach a class, I’m focused on my students. Instead of perfecting my technique, I’m watching everyone in the class to give corrections. And I must make sure that I challenge and entertain you all.

To all of you fitness and dance instructors out there, don’t forget about your own personal growth. Learn more so you can teach more.  Take classes so you can remember what it is like to be a student. Never stand still, never be satisfied with where you are.

Interview with the Mambo King, Mr. Eddie Torres

I found an article where this young lady had the privileged of interviewing the Mambo King.  Mr. Eddie Torres is an amazing instructor, super talented dancer and an inspiration to dancers all over the world. If you call yourself a Salsero (or Salsera), you definitely need to know about Mr. Eddie Torres.

Here is the video that made me fall in love with Salsa and inspired my Salsa journey:

 

 

Here is an interview with him in Vancouver during the Vancouver Salsa Congress:

And here he is performing with one of my VERY FAVORITE Salseras, Griselle Ponce. She is FIERCE!

What is Rueda?

Originating in Cuba, Rueda de Casino is a multi-partner, synchronized form of Salsa. Several couples dance together in a circular form, exchanging partners through a variety of moves called out by a leader. The energetic nature of Rueda makes for a fun and exciting way to meet new friends and learn Salsa in an informal group setting!

This will be a 6-week series offered every Wednesday. The first two weeks will be focused on basic movements. The last four weeks will involve movements built from the basics. That being said, because Rueda involves many people at a time, we require individuals to commit to the whole series in order for the classes to run more smoothly, especially students without prior salsa experience. No drop-ins will be accepted after the second class.

Nos vemos bailando!
