First Place at Stevens Steakhouse Competition in Los Angeles

Over the weekend there was an amazing competition at Steven's Steakhouse in Los Angeles, California where many professional salsa dance couples competed for a grand prize of $10,000 smackeroos in addition to respect from the overall salsa community. We are happy to congratulate Christian Oviedo and Liz Lira for winning first place and showing us why they are number 1 (must see video)!The second and third place winners are:

Top Female Dancer Contest in Los Angeles

It was Ladies Night in Los Angeles last weekend, and the feeling was definitely right! There were lots of talented dancers who entered the contest for Top Female Dancer at Steven's Steakhouse, here I give you a video with highlights of each of the finalists.

The On2 World Salsa Champions 2006

I finally started recovering from our trip to the 10th Annual Los Angeles Salsa Congress. While the event gets various mixed reviews this year, one workshop session I personally enjoyed was by the famous pair, the on2 World Salsa Champions: Oliver and Luda.

A Weekend Salsa Dancing : The West Coast Salsa Festival

After taking the rest of the video and editing it, I'm happy to start off a new series (that hopefully will continue). I had watched a DVD called On2005 A Year in Mamboland, and I decided to use it as inspiration on how to show all the nice video clips of social dancing at the 2007 West Coast Salsa Congress in Los Angeles California. I title this series: A Weekend in Salsa. I like the name because that usually when most of us go out for salsa during the week. Additionally, that is when most of the salsa congress events occur. Now, I have no real background in directing/production/editing so I did my best for my first shot. This is mainly for you guys to enjoy the dancing that goes on a salsa congresses during the night events. Again, please enjoy!

Salsa Technicals : Playing with the music ... Alex Lima

Well, got back from LA Congress (in one piece). However, more on that story (and its videos later on). However, I'd like to talk about playing with the music - since I finally found some video that someone took of Alex Lima one of my favorite solo dancers that really understand how to choreograph to the music. His solo choreography is amazingly fast, precise and fun to watch. I saw Alex Lima perform at Palm Springs several months ago, but at that time I was without a camera. Regardless, pay attention to the song that is being played as he dances to it. Notice how the footwork and body movements are nicely synchronized to the fluidness of the song. Of course, this is a video - but I remembered watching it live was an amazing experience.
