Review of Salsa Dance Shoes for Men

Review of Salsa Dance Shoes for Men

In the large spectrum of dance shoes, there is very little written about the variety of options available to men. Now that I have gone through enough salsa dance shoe phases, it is time to provide my experience and mini-reviews of the dance shoes I have worn throughout my salsa lifetime. My favorite being the Modern Suede Shoe.

2007 Dubai International Latin and Salsa Festival Recap

Well, I got a good email from a viewer that just mentioned that they just finished having their first Salsa Congress in Dubai! The event was from Nov 22nd - 24th, 2007....Wow. Dubai - all the way over there. Even near the desert there is still salsa. Here is the clip he sent in.

1st San Diego Salsa Festival 2007 Nuevotec Review

"... Everybody else in the world or the country basically we're saying that San Diego didn't have a big enough salsa scene. And so my husband and I set out to prove them wrong, and prove them wrong we did." - Tulane Rivera.

Nuevotec Salsa Summer Splash 2007 Video Dance Review

Nuevotec Salsa Summer Splash 2007 Video Dance Review

What's the sweeter bonus? A weekend in beautiful Palm Springs, CA? Or a salsa congress and bootcamp in the 2007 Salsa Summer Splash? Maybe it's a draw. Regardless, I had a great time at the event. Palm Springs gets very crowded with salseros in the months of July and August. Al Espinoza's event somehow pulls a large following, despite the fact that his party is the third event (in 8 weeks) in the desert oasis. Both the workshop/bootcamp portion and the performances/parties were well attended. Want a reggaeton class? Check. Bachata or salsa shines? Yup. I'm trying to recall if there was a zouk workshop. Wanna talk about some great instructors? John Narvaez and Liz Rojas from Salsamania taught an intermediate/advanced on2 pattern class. The bay area team broke down the pattern thoroughly, and even split the class between guys and girls to get their respective pieces down. John also took some time outside of the class to help me with a difficult section. Anthony and I really enjoyed the session.In addition to meeting Sir Anthony Persaud of San Diego for the first time, I met Pauline (Miss Flare), Karlos, and a bunch of other salseros from the Bay Area, LA, San Diego, etc. Great company. On the performance tip, they started pretty close to their scheduled time, within a half hour. Some of the standout routines included Majesty in Motion, John Narvaez and Liz Rojas, Pretty Boys and Girls, Salsabor y Cache. Click on some of the images below for a sampling of the videos. Thanks to Anthony for doing the interview with Dave Stein and Majesty in Motion. Keep the podcast going for the community!
