    Salsa open diary

    Dear diary, I'm craving a great salsa night! Like one of those I used to have when I first started dancing 7 years ago. Back when I didn't care who I was dancing with or who was looking! Back when I was just happy to be out there not at the house!

    Learning materials for component moves

    Take beginner classes which teach the component moves. Or whenever you take an intermediate class pay attention to one particular move and leave with that. Then just practice that move over and over till it's inside you!

    Is there more than one NY On2 timing?

    New York style salsa is strictly 1,2,3... 5,6,7... The dance rhythm should definitely be always consistent on these numbers. You always hear the musicians hit the right notes at the right times, if not it would be a disaster. It is the same with the dance ;)
