Salsa Dancing Journal

Arren’s Salsa Dancing Journal

Welcome to my Salsa Dancing Journal. Here’s where I’ll keep my thoughts, experiences, and ideas of my salsa dancing life.


Soon, I’ll have been dancing for over 6 years. I must’ve met hundreds of people and danced countless hours. I’ve never kept track of my salsa dancing experiences, so it’ll be interesting to see how much salsa is a part of my life.

Brett and Me at La Luna

When I first started dancing salsa, I remember seeing the advanced performance group perform. When I saw them dance, I knew that I wanted to be a part of their group. Unfortunately, when I got to the level that was good enough to join the group, I found myself in the midst of other obligations in my life. I know it would take a big commitment to join a performance group of that level, so I had to pass up several offers. One day… One day…

Ok.. Enough banter. Here starts a long line of links to my first salsa journal.

My Salsa Journal was too cumbersome to update as evidence by the lack of posts. A new Salsa Blog has been created to take the place of my journal. Visit Salsa Blog for Salsa Dancing Addict.
