And if you make the effort to learn my technique and practice what you have been taught,you'll be able to go into any nightclub,feel comfortable,fit right in and dance Salsa-Nightclub Style- the authentic way.
|In my opinion dancing is as important as the music. That's why I write all
my music for dancing.
Today,it is very hip to be an educated dancer.Just as the musician reads music,the dancer has to be able to understand timing and clave.
Learning the basic concepts in this video will give you confidence on the dance floor and increase your enjoyment.
Eddie Torres is one of our most talented and authentic Latin dancers.His video combines the correct teaching technique with all the pizzazz and savvy of nightclub style dancing.
I strongly recommend it.
