So You Think You Can’t Salsa? – NY Times

Posted on August 29th, 2008 by by Dany J

Flash News! Extra! Extra! The Scarlet Mambo team and yours truly were quoted/mentioned in an article, So You Think You Can’t Salsa? in the New York Times.

“Salsa has its own networks. At clubs and socials, dancers promote their events. Camila Danielle Sanchez, 25, who was at the Chelsea social, teaches in Highland Park, N.J., near New Brunswick, where she and her partner, Dany Joshua, also host a salsa night called “Scarlet Mambo.” “If you look at the fliers,” Mr. Joshua said, “the dancers are organized. It’s a lot of ‘I’ll come support you,’ and a lot of ‘you come support me.’ Everything revolves around certain Web sites, and a MySpace and a Facebook effect has also taken place. It used to be rude to hand out fliers; now when it ends you’ll see everyone hand them out.”

Why Salsa Shines are Good for you

Posted on June 5th, 2008 by by Dany J

Hopefully this short article (and video) will persuade you to spend some time on your shines.

Beginner dancers usually shy away from learning Salsa shines (footwork) because they do not understand their practicality or value. The following video is an example of improvisational fluidity.

Why Salsa shines are good for you:

  1. Improve your timing – If you get lost in the middle of a turn pattern, you will be able to get back into the beat more easily.
  2. Improve your body movement – If you want to dance salsa like a fish swims in water, shines are a perfect way to loosen your body and look more “latin”.
  3. Expand your spinning abilities. – It is more difficult to spin by yourself that to have a partner spin you. If you can spin in shines, then you can spin twice as much in partner work.
