    I have swim practice from 6-7. Probably wouldn't get there until 7:45. If being a couple minutes late doesn't affect anything, then I'm in (:

      I just watched this video and it is ridiculous, lol. Just focus on the song.

      "The Rough Guide to Salsa Clandestina" is a nice collection of more modern salsa with a lot of different flavors. You can hear samples here: http://www.worldmusic...­

    For those that are on the fence, here is a little commentary based on my own past experience:

    For those intimidated by a lack of dancing skill, salsa is very easy to pick up and there will be a class full of beginners from 7:30-8:30. They will teach you everything you need to do! But, just as a preview: there are 8 counts in the basic step and you don't even do anything for two of those counts!

    for guys:

    for girls:

    Guy/girl ratio for the meetup group shouldn't be too important as its important for beginners to mix and switch salsa partners often so you don't get stuck adopting the idiosyncrasies of your first salsa partner. Ideally we will be mingling/salsa-ing with all the other people attending the class. That being said, the meetup group can provide a safe homebase as sometimes there can creepy-ish guys (and girls, though less often) on the dance floor. Just being honest.
