Now that you have the confidence and know the core principles and fundamentals of Salsa dance, don't restrict that knowledge to just the Salsa dance scene. Share that soul warming experience you have with the power of Latin dance and the fun of dancing everywhere you go. Variety is the spice of life, and with the addition of Latin dance to your repertoire of dance skills, show off your awesome glow and confidence. Anytime you hear any style of music that taps into that Latin soul inside of you, get up and dance it! Don't hold it back!
No matter what level you are at in your Latin dance skill, there are two points to recognize. One is the visual outer presentation of your ability. Second, and more important, is the personal and powerful inner passion that comes with Latin dance. There is no doubt that even though your skill level may be basic, it's that inner passion that raises any dancer's aptitude. Your inner passion is the fuel that takes you to that 'moment of Zen' when it seems that time stands still, and also puts that shine on your outer visual self. Everyone will want to share in your inner passion and glow no matter what your skill level.
As the saying goes, we only live once, and you should not pass up the opportunity to take that happy dance soul and apply the full liberating advantage at any given moment. DO IT! Dance to any live music show anywhere when the moment arises. You will be part of creating positive energy in every room and convert your personal soulful dance moment into everyone's personal moment. You will create a super 'domino effect' by one simple action in sharing your knowledge of the core principles and fundamentals of Latin dance. It's automatic that you will get a satisfied feeling knowing that you took advantage of that instance, that moment in time, that your 'Latin Dance Soul' called out and gifted you.
With Latin Jazz you will hear 'The Clave' and a percussion rhythm that, although it may not have vocals and the hot brass of Salsa, is very much danceable! So apply your skills to any and all music events you visit, not just Salsa events! Anyone who makes the initial commitment to Latin dance realizes at one point that it becomes a part of your being, part of your soul and has a positive impact in lifting self-esteem and confidence to shine in any room you enter. So don't fight your feeling, dance to that Latin Jazz beat that's calling out to you. You already have the confidence and excitement inside your soul that you want to be the first on any dance floor, and you know you are not alone.
It's very helpful being comfortable with your level of dance abilities and not to worry that you are not 'Dancing with the Stars' quality. However, if you watch the show, you see that they're not so great themselves. So get out there and dance whenever you hear that Latin beat and spread that inner glow. Keep Smiling...Keep Dancing!
