Use Solo Styling to Avoid Elbowing People in the Face During Salsa

I talk a lot about the “psychology of dancing” (even though I do not always call it that).

The right attitude is KEY in becoming a better dancer.

But let’s talk about the actual thing: the body, steps, movement. 

The second ingredient to being a master-dancer is the technique.

How do you get it? By practicing with and WITHOUT a partner.

In fact, before you can even think about dancing smoothly with another person…

you need to have absolute certainty in what YOU are doing!

You know that stereotype of the dancer that steps on people’s toes?

Well, that’s because they haven’t learned how to get full control over their OWN feet first.

“Fun” fact: When I was a beginner, I once elbowed a very cute girl in my dance class — between the eyes!

Don’t be that guy (or girl)!

Wouldn’t it be nice to worry about nothing about the connection to your partner when you move?

If you could forget about “doing the right” thing, and just flow with the music?

In order to get there, you need to start with YOURSELF.

This is what I discovered for myself and the method that has worked for my students in Europe ever since.

And if you are ready to take this next step (pun intended!), I have a suggestions for you:

Have a look at Solo Styling Foundations or Solo Styling Intermediate and see if it is the right thing for you.

In a nutshell, it’s a super-efficient method for beginner to intermediate dancers. It will take you from a basic step and take you into advanced variations (fast!). 

Also you’ll learn the solo step that every Cuban knows and loves (hand-picked in Havana by yours truly).
