    consider the ballroom places too!

    wow - amazing resource of salsa venues!

    should you ever move or live in an area without dedicated salsa venues i suggest what i have done at many places (even in San Francisco or London where you actually have a great Salsa scene...)

    i often went to the ballroom places which are nearly always more spacious and often more relaxed and welcoming playing beautiful music etc. (they simply have a bigger budget and better marketing)

    Salsa can be danced to many types of music like rumba, chacha (or you throw into your salsa basic a double step), brasilian forro, pop, generally to any kind of 4 beat pattern. it may become boring with some tracks since there is no accent (i.e. emphasis) on the first or 5th beat but it helps to become creative. 8)

    i personall switch then (when salsa adaptions becomes too monotonous) over to argentine tango which can easily cover the rest of anything played at ballroom dance places. neotango dancers know what i mean..:)

    only drawback is that you might have to bring your own partner (if you don t dance ballroom) and it makes you feel a bit strange if you say no when being ask for a dance (as a girl) by a ballroom dancer reasoning you can t dance... unless they lead you... it's easier for the guys since good ballroom dancers can often be lead at least into the simple tango and salsa steps

    -klaus 8)

    i invite you to take part in the poll (dancing to any music)

    :shock: People have been busy over here, linking to everything!
    Haven't updated the thread for some time now, sorry, but I'll do my best to update now. Oh, and ALL the links are broken. :? Tough luck for me. I guess I'll be the one to make this whole thing work again, which means searching for all those threads once again and linking them back. Lots of work. Can't possibly do it right now, I'm stuffed with homework like a Thanksgiving turkey. But will work on it asap. :D

    Well there are a few cities in Bulgaria that have Salsa dance schools. Sofia as the capital has the most ofcourse. There are Salsa cluvs in Varna and Plovdiv as well. Recently I heard that a new one opened in Shumen, but I can't confirm on that one.
    I was gonna post a direct link to a list of salsa clubs in Bulgaria, but I can't because I don't have 15 posts. You can use the link from my signature for more information :D.

    First of all that was a great job to gather and classify all this information on (links to) threads about "Salsa Worldwide: Index to areas and their salsa life", thank you.
    Alas as noticed these kinds of links (to threads or posts) are no longer valid under the new web forum software (vBulletin) and the threads' or posts' numbers aren't even the same, so we've got to find them again.
    Since then someone* has done the job of updating the first post of this thread, replacing the previous links with current valid links to threads on corresponding topics (maybe not the same threads) (*Twilight_Elena herself if she can edit this post of her, or else a moderator), thanks again.

    About "Salsa in Paris" - to bring my little little help (it's far easier to find the new link to a thread you've posted in, as you just have to search your own posts) - I just wanted to mention that now the link points to the old "Paris Salsa Clubs - Which are worth visiting?" thread started by squirrel on 2004-04-08 (yyyy-mm-dd) (hello squirrel) with last post on 2004-05-13 (12 posts) instead of the more recent "Salsa clubs/instructors in Paris?" thread started by meagalita on 2005-02-01 with last post on 2005-09-09 (53 posts).
