    Imagine this, you wake up on the adventurous side and decide to go salsa dancing.  You put on your favorite clothes, the ones that spark great joy and you set out for the salsa social.  You park your car in a sea of cars and you know the dance is going to be great.  You wish you arrived a bit earlier since the dance is clearly packed and it seems like you might be the last to arrive.

    Sonya wrote a wonderful article "Why do women turn men down (in dancing) and what to do about it." and there was a comment that desired to hear from a man's a point of view.

    I caught up with Liz Becerra Castro one of the lead dancers for Art in Motion (AIM).   We were going to have an interview win, lose or draw. I think like Katniss Everdeen the "odds were in her favor".  Let's dive down into the juicy stuff.
    We are already an easy decade deep into the Salsa scene in Philadelphia.  I was looking around to see the future of the next decade.  One such influencer has been a personal friend over the past few years.  Its about time that a wider audience got to be up close and personal too with the sexy Marianna Bel


    It was a warm summer night in Buckhead Atlanta, the year was 2004. Some friends and I traveled from Philadelphia to Atlanta and wanted to go out dancing at a Latin Club.  We were anxious to polish our budding dance skills.  We danced salsa and made new friends. We also danced the ...

    One good night Stephen and Joe was talking about their favorite local follows in the Salsa Scene.  We called this list "Stephen and Joe's Favorite Five".  Now has come the time to unveil our little secret.
