Out of Line
Turns out that I dance Cuban-style salsa rather than in-line salsa. This was pointed out to me by one of my favorite salsa dancers here in Des Moines, who just happens to be a professional ball room instructor (so I suppose he knows what he's talking about). He meant it as a matter-of-fact statement. I took it as a criticism (shocker, I know). Not dancing in-line, to me, meant that I dance out of line - traveling too much during spins, rather than rotating in one space or traveling in the same line. Cuban style salsa has more of a circular dance pattern. So, from now on, I'm going to make a conscious effort to stay in line!!!
