INtoSalsa, Indy's premier Salsa guide
Hello everyone! I want to start off by saying that I am having the time
of my life. Salsa has opened my eyes to an exciting culture, and a diverse
group of interesting people.
I remember the first time I saw Salsa dancing. It was just another boring
day in slow, tiny Evansville, IN and I stumbled upon a ballroom competition
while flipping through the tv stations (One of the few things to do
in Evansville). All the traditional stuff was cool, but then came the
latin dance segment. Oh man! The second those enigmatic couples stepped
onto the floor, I was entranced. After that, I rented every dance movie
and watched every dance show availble. It wasn't until two years after
moving to Indy that my chance to shine came about. 2001 was my year
to get familiar whith the culture and watch others in the club. In 2002,
I met an energetic sista named Shavon Woolfolk at the Madame Walker
Theatre. Her style was soulful, just like me. She was going to teach
me whether she wanted to or not. (Ha ha) Thank god she was planning
to teach anyway, and I gladly became her student that summer. She introduced
me to Erin and Yang, and the rest is history.
Salsa has allowd me to unleash all the bottled up energy I couldn't
let out before. I felt trapped in Evansville and in my life. When I'm
dancing, all my worries, stress and emptiness goes away. For a few short
hours, I feel free.
P. S. I'm learning to lead now. So you fellas better stay on top of
your game, 'cause it's on.
