Hola salseros y salseras!

Another semester is near its end and its good to see so many people have continued on with salsa. Its also great to see how those people who started level 1 this semester have improved as dancers. I have to admit that my favourite part of being a helper is seeing how novices take up the dance so quickly and enjoy it as they progress. It really is a joy filled dance. So now I am finishing my first semester as the writer of this blog and I have to say I’ve enjoyed it immensely. It has been exciting thinking of ideas and writing about the music I love so much. Thanks to those of you who have given feedback and have talked to me about it in person. I hope you have enjoyed reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it. So, what is coming up? Well, with summer around the corner there will be a chance to review salsa related events like concerts and the St. Clair street festival. I will continue to write the “Guerra de las canciones” section as well as the project some of you may have recently noticed. This one is a work in progress with an adventurous path and an ultimate destination. There is also preparation for the TDS amateur competition, of which I am deeply into right now. Hope to see you on the 8th at 6 degrees for this event. Trust me, the prep for this is its own separate blog entry which I will write about in future editions (a behind the scenes look at a couples’ preparation would do well here-now let’s just see how far Camela and I go :s). So, this is the immediate direction of the blog. As I said before, feel free to make suggestions and give feedback. As much fun as I have writing it, I definitely want to make it into something you will enjoy reading just as much. In closing, its been a great first semester, let’s get ready for summer and above all…

Sigan bailando!
