Intermediate Salsa Routine (Romantic)

I have posted this routine to show that not ALL Salsa Routines have to be Frantic Exercise Workouts... Some Salsa Music can be Slow and/or Romantic and your dancing should reflect that. Remember (Men) when you are dancing with your partner that what you lead and how you dance should not only be on time, but also relevant to the music you are dancing to...

Otherwise you are not Dancing, and just trying out a few moves while there just happens to be some music playing in the background.

I hope you like the video. I plan to post more in the future.

See You on the Dancefloor.


P.S. If you like the video, why not leave comments and rate it on Youtube?

London Salseros head out of town

by the Salsa Daddy

Everyone knows, if you want to go to a decent Salsa Club and dance with the best Salsa Dancers at the weekend London is where you need to be… Of Course! For years, that's the way it's been… dancers from all over the South East of England willing to endure the stress of driving and trying to park in London and often at great expense all in the name of Salsa.

Not any more! Londoners have started heading OUT of town at weekends for a Better Night of Salsa Dancing. So, what has changed and where are they going? Why are they going to so much trouble with so many Salsa clubs on their own doorstep?

It appears that London Salsa Dancers are becoming a bit disillusioned with the London Salsa Scene… perhaps it's not as friendly as it used to be, the music is predictable and the venues are expensive & often leave a lot to be desired. The dancers may not dance to quite the standard of the better London Salseros, but the scene is friendly, social and less intimidating (for newbies). What the 'Out of Towners' lack in skill & experience, they more than make up for in Enthusiasm, plus there are some fabulous venues where the drinks are not ridiculously expensive and parking is often very close by and FREE.

One such venue on many Londoners' lips at the moment is 'COLORS Nightclub' in Basildon, Essex… some 30 miles from the centre of London, but nevertheless attracting more London Salsa Dancers every month, and more importantly they are returning with friends. 'COLORS' holds a party night on the First Saturday of every month, with 2 Dance rooms offering different music to suit all tastes and an outside Roof Terrace, where you can also dance, the venue is to say the least Unique. Added to the Free parking within 1 minute walk, sensible priced entry & drinks and a very friendly group of Essex regulars of this & other local clubs, it's not hard to understand why Londoners can't wait to come back!

Stuart Thomas (Salsa SOS) & Joe Davids (Latin Collective) teamed up recently to run these events under the joint name of 'The United Colors of Salsa'. Stuart & Joe believe there is a lot to be gained by having a club where London dancers can enjoy the warm, friendly atmosphere of Essex and where Essex dancers can benefit from dancing with more experienced London Salseros (without having to travel to London of course). As well as bringing London & Essex Salseros together, they are determined to bring down the barriers between Salsa Styles… 'COLORS' is a club where, whatever your style (Cuban, Miami, LA, NY, etc…) you will feel welcome & at home and have a great time dancing to music you love.

Every party/event features different guest DJs & Teachers from the various styles, there are classes for all levels from 8pm to 9pm and a Showcase later in the evening, with the party going on all the way through till 2am. A great night out is guaranteed, and for just £10 (on the door) or even cheaper at £8 if you pay in advance online.
