    I just posted Part 8 of the "Music For Dancers" series on YouTube.

    It is NOT salsa specific, but rather a grounding in the music that cuts across music styles.

    Check it out and let me know what you think.

    It was a secret, but you have my permission to share it with your closest dance friends ;)

    My goal is one video per week. So far I'm 8 videos in 9 weeks, but I have enough materials to continue for at least the next year.

    All feedback welcomed!

    Thanks!!

    It's been a long time since I posted here.

    There are now 26 videos live, and the series recently crossed 20,000 views.

    I'm working on the next one today, and it will be live within the next couple days.

    I haven't watched all of them, but it seems you mostly have ballroom type songs. Do you plan on making any videos for hip-hop?

    Jamal:

    LOL: Wow, you're the first to say something like that. (Often others want more salsa, or afro-cuban, or something else.)

    I'm not sure what type of music fits ballroom exactly, so I'm not sure which songs have that feel to you.

    As for HH, I love it (take classes in it regularly with a high profile guy here in So Cal.)

    All the principles in the videos apply across a range of styles and music, so I'd be curious what concepts are you looking to see explored.

    And just for fun, my latest article/video is on the subject of genre specific music for learning. (I think the video is less than 5 min, you might want to check it out, I'll put link below.)

    That said, let me know what concept is not clear with the example music I use. I'm all over the map in terms of music, but mostly look for great examples of the concepts.
