When I wrote that "nothing kills salsa," what I meant was that despite there being some serious issues that need to be addressed, salsa has survived and will continue to survive. Of course, those things do need to be addressed! I'll repeat it a third time: Salsa DJs need to stop making the dancers have to "run." Instead, make them guide and swing to the music. Also, Dissonant Harmony has a great point! Instructors need to teach fewer dance patterns; which is very difficult because beginners tend to want to learn them. The ladies simply do not enjoy them so much! I'm bewildered as to "why" more of the instructors have not realized this. It is quite obvious!
