    thanks for posting!!! this is fab!
     
  4. Go Eli!

    Hey, I took some classes with Eli when I lived in Philadelphia. Eli is an incredible dancer, and an excellent teacher as well. (In fact, he made rapid progress as a teacher in the brief time I took classes with him, so I would guess he's pretty amazing at it by now.)

    I think I may finally be able to resume regular dancing again, but I've been saying that for years now. (Still, I'm planning on going to two bachata workshops this afternoon.)

  7. Hi pygmalion (I will avoid shortening your name!). 36,000+ posts? I guess it was always headed in that direction.

    Pretty impressive clip, yup.

    Hi right back. *waves*

    And yeah. You have no idea. *crazy posting chic on the loose*
     
  9. Oh boy, I'm re-addicted and I'm so happy! I can't sit still in my chair. (And I finally learned the cumbia basic--like that was so difficult. I suppose I have sort of gotten it in clubs before, but I was not quite sure of it somehow.)

    I walk down Central Ave., with a natural high and a bottle of Fiji water in my hand.

    Indeed! Were they competing against male-female couples?

    I thought they were. Must google Mayan rules.


    I find it so challenging to see people in the machismo-dominated salsa world embracing a same sex dance partnership. It really challenges several of my prejudices at once, which is probably a good thing. :cool:

    I just visited Eli Torres' website, and was so saddened to read that Yen Dorado has passed away. What a great talent.

    They would be, IF they would get off their toes !.. its NOT ballet.. talent ? yes . And, performance style, really has little to do with the genre, altho, many believe it to be the criteria .
