It’s titled “A Gozar (To Enjoy): An Introduction to Salsa Dancing”
It’s impossible for me to be objective about the results since I have a few moments. During the filming we talked on camera for about 5 minutes and then I'm edited down to a few sound bits along the way. It’s a great thing to send to your friends who are thinking of learning salsa, but keep putting it off.
Let them know now is the time to get started, and anybody is welcomed, even if they think they aren't great dancers now. Nobody cares and they can have a great time even as they get started.
Point out to them that you can be older (or younger) than most, non Latino, and a complete novice dancer and still end up enjoying the scene, even while learning. I'm living proof.
Maybe this film will help them get off the couch and join you at the club for some fun.
Check out the documentary and let me know what you think.
Side note: When this was filmed, I primarily danced salsa and that was it. Since then I've grown quite a bit and explored many other styles/genres. Dance is so vast, find one you like to start with, explore others when it works for you.
