Salseros everywhere!

Posted on August 19th, 2011

This past month I've been super busy with Salsa almost everyday. First with daily practice for the competition in July. Thanks to everyone who supported Paulino and I. Unfortunatley I suffered a pulled muscle in my back during practice the day of the finals. I still managed to dance and we got 2nd place. Two of the judges for the competition Javier Leon and Yesenia Herrera also offered a 3 day Salsa On1 workshop. Then in July we had the great pleasure of hosting a Son workshop by the Cuban maestro Manolo Vazquez. This month, a visiting band from Cancun called the Gigilos de la Salsa entertained saleros here on the island for 2 weeks. Now we are preparing for the Bachata workshop coming up next week by Gerardo Morales from Mexico City. I've had lots of private classes the last 2 weeks too! SALSEROS ARE EVERYWHERE IN COZUMEL!

Who won the competition in the end? And where are the judges teaching in Cozumel? The photo of them looks amazing!

Luis (twin brother of Carlos at Fama Dance Studios) and his girlfriend Hannah won 1st place. Two of the judges, Javier & Yesenia were only here for the weekend of the competition teaching a workshop...I think at Fama dance studio. You can see more info about their regular classes in Merida on their facebook page (Javier Leon). I hope they come back soon for another workshop. I want to spin like Yesenia!
