Is Salsa Dancing an Extreme Contact Sport?

Alex Da Silva

Every one has a horror story about how they went salsa dancing and got stepped on/trampled/smashed/etc by another couple on the dance floor.

Apparently one Los Angeles Times writer had a particularly “memorable” experience recently when he went salsa dancing with his wife in Los Angeles. Augustin Gurza’s article points out that sometimes salsa dancers can get carried away with different moves, spins, and flips on the dance floor. Although I don’t think it was wise for Agustin to write an article basically focusing on one particular dancer, Alex Da Silva (see the picture in this post), the article does point out a problem that many of us encounter on the dance floor.

After reading the article feel free to write a comment on my website about your horror stories with salsa dancing mishaps or thoughts about the article. I look forward to see what you veterans of the dance floor have experienced.

Ready to learn salsa directly from Eddie, the Salsa Freak or Alex da Silva?

I received a number of emails regarding my Salsa Boot Camp post. Many people were asking about other types of salsa dance videos that may be available and one reader shared with me the Steps 4 Salsa website .

The website is a nice resource for instructional salsa DVD’s featuring well known salsa instructors like Eddie, the Salsa Freak , Alex da Silva , and Josie Neglia . They also have some local San Diego salsa talent such as the Angel and Tulane videos available for purchase. A nice feature of the website is the ability to download some of the videos directly for your use at a click of the mouse.

The list of Salsa dance instructors is very extensive and should keep you busy learning new salsa moves. Enjoy!
