I'm wondering when the Adelaide club practices are starting up again. My partner's ready and willing to go tonight, but it doesn't look like they're on yet!

What's the deal, salsa people? To answer your question, I'll be there to help anyone who has questions about steps and/or turn patterns. Also, I don't refuse a dance so don't be shy. Holla back at ya boy!

I like to know the ratio between men and women at the Monday practice? Estimate would be fine, like 4:1 ratio or 3:2 ratio?

Thanks.

The ratio really varies week to week. Sometimes it can be 3 men:2 women, sometimes it's fairly equal and last night we had MORE women than men. We always have helpers to try and balance things out.

Last night was AMAZING! IT was like a salsa party there were so many people. i hope the enthusiasm carries out to the remaining weeks. I was approached with tons of questions...danced with a lot of students, taught some catch up lessons, and much more.

Some tips for the men while you're waiting to dance:
1. Watch! You can learn a lot of moves just watching other more experienced dancers.
2. Ask some of the male helpers who are also standing around for tips. That's what they're there for.
3. Practice your basics and focus on the timing of the music (nailing the 1 and the 5). Timing is often one of the most difficult yet most important things to learn in salsa. The best way to get used to the timing is to really LISTEN to salsa music and practice your basic steps, turns etc in front of the mirror. Don't be shy! We dim the lights Smile
