10 Tips To Improve Your Salsa Dancing

1. You're your own worst critic... Watch yourself in a mirror or videotape yourself; and see what you like or don't like about your salsa dancing and change it...
2. Whether you're just starting out or been dancing for a while, sign up for a class or take a workshop to learn some new moves or to help improve your technique...

Leading vs. Following

In the "battle of the sexes" it's hard to say who's on top. But when it comes to dancing salsa it sure is great to be a girl. Following is an immensely enjoyable activity that is incomparable to anything else. The mystery of not knowing what move is coming next and being led into a new pattern or turn can be thrilling. When following you let your mind go, follow, move your body to interpret the music and to express what you're feeling. Moving gracefully to the rhythm of the music can create a sensation akin to floating.

Finding the Clave

I originally learned to dance Salsa/Mambo by breaking on the '1'. I had no idea of what breaking on '2' meant, let alone what the clave was or for that matter what it meant to count an 8 measure bar. It was a pretty frustrating time in my dancing life. I had to think too much. I found myself counting so much that all I could do was pull my hair in frustration. I was able to follow the steps in class, but when it came to dancing what I learned to an actual tune, I was always told that I was off timing.
