Good Manners on the Dancefloor
by Louise (from C&L)
Over the last year or so I have been hearing complaints about people’s behaviour when dancing salsa in nightclubs and bars. Some people even gave up on salsa because of that. I’ve done a bit of research and put together a list of points which I think EVERYONE should consider. Le'ts all try to pay a bit of attention to the way we dance and then everyone can enjoy salsa! Thanks!
Top Tips to improve your Salsa Dancing
by Louise (from C&L)
While looking for inspiration for an article I [Louise] found some information on the Australian 'Club Salsa' website which repeats exactly what we say every year to you all about dancing salsa. I've included it here, and put in some additional thoughts too but this just shows that what we say is acknowledged everywhere in the world - its not just us! These are important tips to remember as they are really the key to progressing and becoming a good salsa dancer. Hope these help. Have fun!

Salsa Styles: Introduction to salsa styles
by César
Many of you joined our lessons with the purpose of learning how to dance salsa. Simply salsa. But one day somebody made you the fatal question: What style do you dance? You dance "on 1" or "on 2"?... "I dance only with one at a time" was your sensible answer.
In this series of articles we will try to explain you what a salsa style is, what are the elements that define a salsa style and which are the most popular salsa styles..

Salsa Styles 3: Position, patterns and personal enhancements
by César
Should I be straight or leaned forward? Should I dance cool or make plenty of tricks? Should I rather dance like ballroom or Afrocuban?
