Hi All, I'm new to the site (and salsa) so would like to say "HI" to ya all I also need some advice! I'm very lucky to live in an area of London where I can not only go to excellent LA style teachers but also the IDO world champions Chris and Jackie who run a superb cuban class nearby as well. As I said I'm new to salsa (about 2 months) and VERY addicted (go to about 3/4 classes a week) and found I love both styles of salsa dancing. In my opinion Cuban is a fantastic freedom inspiring type of dancing where LA is equally as great in the way its disciplined yet quite technical. The main problem I have which I'm sure others have faced is the ladies from each style find it VERY difficult to adapt to moves from the opposite style. This causes problems cos sometimes I automatically go into certain moves that practiced so much that I can do them without thinking and it can all go pear shaped. Now I know whatcha gonna say and yes, I'm a newbie and probably not the best of leads but without blowing my own trumpet, I'm not that bad either. What should do you think? sacrifice one to get good at the other? I dont really want to give up cuban or LA.
