In our conversation, we talk about this relationship between the dance and the music and how to dance with feeling.

    Besides teaching classes in NYC, Joel also runs La Vieja Guardia social which if you are in New York is a must visit! He also runs MySalsaOnline, Joel Salsa and Dance With Feeling which are great resources for aspiring salseros. I personally have signed up for his

CSelena ,

A Wonderful and Much Needed Communication Tool

This podcast is a great way to get a communication going within different salsa scenes. Every salsa dancer around the world talks about these issues, questions, thoughts, etc and it's great to now have them all in one place! Can't wait to hear what comes next!

DDogFOREVER ,

WOW!!

Some really great ideas for how to break-down the salsa learning process!!

Rachel Bowen ,

Excellent!

Very informative while being entertaining at the same time. Hearing about experiences and about how different people have become involved within the salsa community is very inspiring for me as I look to become a better dancer. Definitely recommend.
