Given today is addicted2salsa's 4th birthday, it is time for a new salsa dance video. There have been several salsa dance videos of patterns and steps over the years, however, I wanted to address a few fundamentals that sometimes are not addressed in some salsa dance classes.

For our fans looking for something more complicated, don't worry - it is on its way.
