It gets better!! I've been away from a month and my second latin night was a lot better. By next week I should know all the rueda moves that I lost, and have my dances a lot smoother. Just like for merengue...a little time...a little more music....soem more dancing...it all comes to you...to me...to all who want it to... :)

Yes. Dj music is not live music for me. One of the problems of being in a small place, I guess, but at least it usually is free or really cheap.

Common complaint
'this merengue is going on forever'
Certainly seems as if the songs last longer than salsa tunes. True or false?
If the songs were shorter (more could be played of course) then people could take the natural break to swap partners, leave the floor, whatever, allowing for more variety.
(I only listen to the stuff played in clubs somy experience is limited).

:)) sometimes it si so, D-spot... but you can always stop, right?!
I personally dance very little on merengue, but this is because I'm usually tired when they play merengue... Still, I have my favourite songs and dance on them always...
