For all of you who keep asking me to teach you to dance . . . well, let’s leave that for the professionals. There are several phenomenal dance instructors in our FabuCity. Get connected to one or all (we are a Salsa Family). I list the Salsa Socials so you can come out and get acclimated to the dance scene with the option of getting involved or just watching until you want to.

Some of you have expressed that you want to take group of private lessons before you come to the Socials. Although the Socials will give you the best basics to jump on in, regular classes are also a great (and faster) way to learn. Whatever you choose to do, get moving because a couple of you are letting your insecurites hold you back and that’s not what dancing is about. It is about letting go of all of that. About feeling a freedom that has no words (and that’s challenging for me to say that). It’s about opening up your Life to a joy and happiness that you deserve to experience. This, I know for sure.

Peace & Love,
