Yesenia uses every part of her body

Posted on May 30th, 2008 by by Dany J

This video really makes me want to dance. Yesenia is one of the most energetic salsa dancers that I’ve seen.

She is the instructor that taught me the basic steps of Salsa On2. Her brother,Ismael, kicked me out from the intermediate class and sent me to the beginners class. Yesenia grabbed my hand and said, “C’mon sweety, it goes like this: 1 2 3… 5 6 7.” I admit it. I don’t who I loved more, Salsa or her. That was in the summer of 2000 at Paradise Club (Sayreville, New Jersey).
