Salsa Vintage : Roberto Roena in Noche De Gala!

Now, I love old salsa clips and videos. Again, for those who don't know me, its mainly because I sort of re-live my childhood (and also get to see what I missed out when I wasn't into salsa). I feel that my salsa passion came later on in life even though the existence was always in my life. (kind of like a religious experience, on how you finally realize that God exists and just something changes you personally - please no hate mail). Anyways, this is from the old show called Noche De Gala which they used to air in Puerto Rico on channel 2 (now known as Telemundo own by NBC). This clip is from the 70s that guest stars the master Roberto Roena! (Sorry for the audio quality, but still enjoy it - relive the moment)!

Puerto Rican Power @ Chicago Salsa Congress 2007

Well, for those who missed the great salsa congress in Chicago this year (2007) - and this includes me, here is a cool clip of the famous band called Puerto Rican Power that performed in one of the nights at the congress. If you are a fan of Puerto Rican Power's music, well I hope you went because its always MUCH better listening to them (and dancing) when they play their music live. Its amazing!

The Cobo Body Movement

I'd like to thank Josh for the clip. This is from the 2007 Chicago Salsa Congress. I'm a big fan of the Cobo brothers and their body movement style. It was actually Milton Cobo that got me thinking about smoothing out my salsa patterns and footwork - and as you can see, the footwork that he teaches here is very simple, but with a lot of upper body movement. Again, I recommend any chance you have to take one of their classes. Enjoy!

Some key attributes of being a great Salsa DJs / VJ

Since we've all been to a few parties by now; there are some things we begin to notice that determine how good a time we will get for our money. This post just deals with characteristics of great DJs. These are just three things that I think great DJs always do at salsa dances.

Majesty In Motion Professional Team - Triangle Routine

This is probably one of my favorite routines to watch (and no I'm not being biased because this is the dance company I belong to) :-). This is the Majesty In Motion Professional Dance Team (San Diego, CA) - probably one of the best dance companies southern California. This is routine (codenamed: Triangle routine) has a great song that might not seem like a salsa song, but it does have a clave beat to it, and it works well with the outfits and the marks in the choreography. This video is of the routine being performed at the LA Salsa Congress (also known as the West Coast Salsa Congress). Enjoy! MajestyInMotion celebrated their 4th anniversary in Nov. 2006.
