On every second step. Ball Flat. A dance with long and short stiff legged steps. Their has to be a reason why this is so..

Terence. I know very little about the Mambo or the Salsa. Looking at the Mambo on Learn the Dances. It seems to be the same that I see danced as a Salsa. Also I see World Salsa Championships. But I don`t see World Mambo Championships. Is it being outmoded and replaced.

There is a huge philosophical divide between mambo ( the forerunner ) and Salsa .

There are those who adamantly believe that they are 2 different dances .

There is an old Cuban saying " All salsa is Mambo.. but.. not ALL Mambo is Salsa " . That makes reference more towards the music, than the dance styles .

There is a World Champ. event in mambo held every yr in Miami.

Salsa has several contenders, primarily because it has no parent body. subsequently, there are at least 3 claimants to the title at any given moment .

There is a gradual return to the more traditional style of the genre ( I have 2 seperate teachers coming to me next week for training in mambo )

Mambo is harder because it is danced on the second beat. Most people end up doing salsa because the first beat is so obvious and easy to dance on. Mambo takes some concentration.

Terence. The IDTA embraces Salsa. The Salsa championships that have been shown on Cable would have taken a lot of organising. I don`t see how you can say they have no parent body.
Personely I`m not intersted in either. But it is interesting to know all the facts.

I know, Im a Fellow with them.. the UKA also has Salsa on its syllabii.

I had a long discussion with the head examiner for one the Soc., and he did approach one of the very high profile teachers, who rejected inclusion by exam into the Soc.

I thought the Q was about Mambo ?.. was it more popular, and I said no.

The salsa taught in B/Room schools is being totally rejected by the general populace, which organises every major Comp. in salsa, world wide .

Its a very complex subject.

Well, I have just returned from vacationing in Puerto Rico. Went dancing at a very upscale night club and to my surprise everyone there was dancing merengue to Cha Cha steps! It actually is a lot of fun to do so, because you can hardly get a DJ to play Cha Cha Cha at night clubs anymore! Even though these dances are as different as "Chalk and Cheese", it can be done. Try it!

I would have to agree with you Indy Spinner. Hustle is an awesome dance. Us NORMAL and non-ignorant women thoroughly enjoy the hustle. I appreciate you taking a stand because this "jj" is really just trying to make a fool out of all of us real dancers. Telling others not to go to Arthur Murray, not to hustle, and who knows what else. Thanks!

Someone, the only person who can make a fool of you is yourself.

You're welcome.

News flash, JJ, to many of us "serious dancers" you are coming off as a complete snob...an ignorant one. Don't be ridiculous, and don't accuse Terence of "butting heads" with you when you. You are what is known as a "baiter".

Tsk. Tsk. Such a sour attitude.

If I were a "baiter" then you sure swallowed it, didn't you?

I assumed that most of the posters on this board were mature enough to have an adult sense of humor. Obviously, I was mistaken about some of them.

Take a little bit of advice that has served me very well over the years: always take your work seriously; never take yourself seriously.

Substitute the word "dancing" for "work" and the statement is equally valid.

We would have a good sense of humor, but you going around and pushing everyone's buttons doesn't exactly help. If you want us to have humor, BACK OFF!

Someone, I mean this in all sincerity.

If you are going to let yourself become so emotional that you're making threats on a message board (which are actionable, by the way) then perhaps you should reconsider your participation here.

Honest adults can disagree civilly and settle misundertsandings through continued discussion but not when they let their feelings run away with them.

I've already given you and the others some good advice in my previous response. Please consider it.

I am not making a threat! I am simply saying that you are invading peoples personal bubbles. It's just that every time I go to blog you are criticizing or commenting. This is a privilege.

This message board is a public forum and not a private chat room.

Sooner or later, all "bubbles" are going to burst.

I will continue to criticize or comment as I see fit.
