    Hello everybody –

    I have finally read all the old posts (of interest) on this forum starting from the beginning. I have to say it was eye opening. I am very grateful that this was the first website on Salsa that I visited. You guys have been amazing with the amount of good info and insights I have found here. As a result, I have been saved from becoming a pattern monkey as the school I take lessons at right now is a drop-in pattern of the week type school. It’s the only one I can take lessons at now due to scheduling issues.

    But now that I am caught up on the threads, I don’t know any other websites that have the type of info this one has. I have also already gone through the posts in the “websites of interest” , “music” and “dance “part of this forum.

    When I Google Salsa dance blogs or articles I don’t get websites that can even come close to this one. Most of the stuff I have come across has been pro nonstop spinning/turn pattern type stuff (not interested). I have even come across sites that put down live music (WTF - I recently saw Willie Colon perform at the Barclay Center in Brklyn and he was amazing!).

    Can anyone point me in the direction of another forum or website/sites that have the type of Salsa dance/music information that this one has? Looking for something to read on my downtime at work and right now I am addicted passionate about all things Salsa related.

    Thanks in advance

    You actually read ALL the posts that related to your interest.. wow, what a mammoth task tha was !
    Anyway, as to teachers, I gather you are in the NYC area, and if that be the case, you have a wide choice of teachers .
    Buena suerte .

    Terrence – Gracias. I have been lurking and learning from this site on my downtime at work for about 4 months now. It’s been an eye opening experience – to say the least (loved the sabor thread BTW).
    I have learned so much from you guys/gals and the info on this site has definitely shaped the way I approach my Salsa journey, thanks to knowledgeable people like you, Borikensalsero, Azzey, Richie Blondet, Sabrosura, Timbermayor, DJ Ara and others.

    I am a beginner dancer who loves the music with an insatiable appetite for all things Salsa related. I have not found anything even remotely like this site on the internet.

    I am going to my first Salsa Congress at the end of August (NY). Based on everything I have read here about congresses, it should be interesting.

    Try a new site called LatinDanceCommunity.com. There are some good articles there.

    Thisweekinsalsa.com is a pretty good podcast as well.

    I'll vouch for ThisWeekInSalsa, they have some pretty big names on that podcast like Joel Dominguez (La Vieja Guardia, New York).
