Are You Addicted to Salsa?
What are the tell-tell signs that you are addicted to salsa ? Find out by taking the short quiz below. I’m a little disturbed that you have come to this web page because I’m not going to help you beat your addiction to salsa. I’m going to try a feed it ! (Evil grin).
Definition of addict from Dictionary.com:
"To occupy (oneself) with or involve (oneself) in something habitually or compulsively."
It's funny, but one of the dance teachers that I met likened dancing to a drug. In some ways, I agree. I remember her staring back at me with her eyes wide open and saying slowly, "Dancing is like a drug!" I was a little scared, her eyes were magnified from her glasses and it looked like she was on drugs as she said that. Agree or not, once you start salsa dancing, you get your first taste and you become hooked. As you get your first taste of the salsa step, the music comes on and you start to move to the music. At first your steps are shaky and shy, but then you start getting into it. With each step you get more into the rhythm.. and the more you dance, the more you feel the music within you.
After the first lesson, you think to yourself, "That was kinda cool!". Eventually down the road, six weeks later you find yourself taking classes and going to clubs with no end in site. You start to look forward to the next lesson.. the next dance.. the next fix.. You don’t know how it happened, but you find yourself addicted to salsa dancing!
