Uksalsafeet Salsa Advice

A reason a lot of people don’t stick doing salsa is because they think that they will natural pick it up within a short space of time because it looks so easy to do. This far from the truth. Salsa is one of the most difficult dances to master, this was pointed out by Len Goodman on Strictly Come Dancing. It seems effortless but there has to be a lot of hard work and practice to make it appear that way. As with so many things in life. The more effort you put in the more effortless you look.

One of the biggest reason people give up salsa is because they hit something that I call the salsa wall.  They reach a point very early on that makes them  feel that they not getting it at all. For an unknown reason the lessons or the moves are not sinking in and they unable to accomplish what they desire. This is where they are normally wrong the truth being quite the opposite.  This is the point where people have actually reached a break through point. If people stick at it through this difficult period they will discover that everything becomes so much easier afterward. Learning becomes simpler meaning moves become better. However many people give up before they discover how close they were to being really good at it.

What I’m saying is, if you are at this point I urge you not to give up or give in but to push through this period and to come out on the other side a more experience and better salsa dancer.

PS You will hit these point infrequently during you salsa journey but don’t give.

I looking forward to seeing your out on the dance floor strutting you thing.
