    does anybody really dance guaguanco?

    Co sign on the club format of Nydia. I was in NY recently and learnt so much.. Free...In a club. A private with her must be just amazing! I love rumba! It's so playful and sexy. It's not just with a hankerchief though, some men will use their bodies like a quick thrust. When they used to that...

    What are u missing Most..

    I miss people who dance with PASSION! I'm fed up of people who just go through turn patterns, without listening to the music. I spent the evening with some of the cast of Havana Rakatan last week, and had the best dance I've had since I got back from Cuba.

    What’s WRONG with salsa?

    I agree! I'm not going to name names, but I know 2 dancers that are FANTASTIC dancers, but aren't very good teachers, I think it's because it come naturally to them, so they never had to learn. Then there is a teacher who isn't the greatest dancer I've seen, but can breal down movements like no...

    Focus on the Music FIRST … The Beat (Timing) SECOND…!!!

    What an excellent subject! It's funny, Edie was in the UK last year and we spoke for a while, and I told her that this was my main gripe in salsa. People don't hear, or seem to feel the music, they are stuck on turn patterns. I don't mind dancing with beginners either, I always encourage them...
