Videos and images are worth thousand words than Salsa articles.
That is the truth. So, why would people (like us?!) waste time to write Salsa articles? Salsa is about dancing, moving your bodies, feeling the music, etc. You can’t WRITE about Salsa. People like to have visuals, especially with Salsa dance. Hold your horse.
Sorry, just joking. However, 2/3 of the above reasons are true. For us, Salsa is not just dancing. It is our passions. With passions, you will have more than one way to express yourselves. Not all the time people like to watch dancing clips. Not all the time someone watches teaching videos. And do you think watching a clip of talking will have a deep impact and be mesmerized enough?
Words bring the world close together.
It’s true. When we were new to Salsa scene, sometimes we read an article about a person’s experience on the dance floor. We were just so surprised and excited about knowing other people have the same thoughts and views as us! Or, sometimes, we found articles talking about techniques, attitudes, personal ideas, (literally) everything about Salsa dance! At that, we learned more, a lot more. Because when crafting articles, the writers have put lots of their efforts to make the information flawless. Therefore, that can help people to know what they should focus or take notice. Having talking clips is no better than a well-structured article with concise and consistent ideas.
See? It’s weird that Salsa dancers should take some free time, sit back, read, and enjoy!
