Chris:

Hello, and welcome to living value a podcast about living your best life and making the world a better place by living in a way that brings value to yourself and to everyone around you. I'm so fulfilled. And on each of these podcasts, I'll be interviewing someone who I believe is a true example of living value. They bring value to themselves, their families and friends, to the community at large, through how they live and through how they do business. I believe that this is one thing that we can all agree on, that everyone who can, should create more value than we consume, build more than we destroy. Give more than we take. If every able-bodied enabled minded person on earth, focused on creating more value than they consumed in their lifetime, then the world would become a better place at breakneck speed. So you and I may worship different gods, speak different languages, vote for different politicians or follow different...

How Make The Most Of Your Dance Classes: Efficient & Effective Learning - by Cheryl

5 Ways To A Productive Dance Journey

 

 

1. Make The Most Of Your Dance Class

Pay attention. Skip the phone, the chit chatting and listen to what your teacher is saying. Too many times a mindless glance at messages/social media may cause you to miss out on important information.

 

2. Watch Videos Often

Dance is special kind of art. The more videos you watch, the better you become! Understand the moves and techniques, and breakdown what the best do. Scrutinise the videos, and try to make sense of it. You learn better when you're truly watching. 3. Learn From A Great Teacher A good teacher knows their technique and has great knowledge of the dance. A great teacher imparts this to you, and bridges the gap between the current you and the future you. Find a teacher who constantly encourages you to hone your craft - Dancing is as much about a great teacher as it is the dance. 4. Attend Classes, Socials & Workshops Involve yourself in as many classes as possible (with...

Rebuilding A Community in the Midst of Covid - by Cheryl

Rebuilding A Community in the Midst of Covid

Covid has been with us for 6 months now: Half a year, just gone like that. We have all spent the last 26 weeks isolated at home. Though a short period in the grand scheme of things, we have lost so much in such little time.

 

We've lost personal friends, dance teachers, dance students, dance activity and for many, even their livelihoods. The world enters a recession that is far worse than any financial downturn we've ever seen - And we are only at the beginning in the war against Covid. For teachers, for students, for community members and for many others, the future of (partner) dancing seems bleak. Indeed, Covid-19 has created unprecedented challenges to the lives of all of us. Globally, countries are starting to open up their economy. Dance studios are restarting classes again, albeit with health and safety measures in place. For many, the same question will come to mind: Will we have a dance community to return to...

Practising your steps as a beginner is hard enough, you shouldn't have to scour through thousands of fast songs just to find one slow enough to practise with!

 

Here's our top 10 Salsa songs for beginners to practise with!

10 BEST SALSA SONGS for Beginners to Practise to!

 

I (very frequently) get asked to recommend salsa songs which are good for beginners to practise to. This is awesome, because I love that our beginner students are recognising the importance of consistent listening to music to learn the salsa rhythm and musicality…but it’s also quite repetitive having to repeat the list again and again…so, here’s my definitive list of Salsa Songs that I recommend for beginners to practise to!

 

First though, let me explain why I chose these particular salsa songs for beginners!

 

1. They aren’t too fast. Some Salsa songs are really fast, and obviously, this makes it very difficult for beginners to focus on the music, while...

Meet the Crew: Willow

Uncategorized Jul 05, 2020
 

My name is Willow. I am a salsa instructor at The Salsa Foundation. I discovered salsa essentially through a random person on the street. It was my first day in uni. I just finished feeling happy and I came across a fundraiser in the middle of Burke street, we were just talking about random stuff and she brought me into her crew. From there I started meeting people and one person I met went to an old school that I used to go to. I asked her what kind of hobbies was she into and she said she was into dancing and I'm like, "I've always wanted to learn how to dance." "Ah, what kind of dance would you learn if you were to dance?" "Salsa. Sexy." So she's like, "Oh, I know this great salsa school just down the road over there and you learned salsa free." I'm like, "That sounds fun. Hook me up, when does it start?".

And, yeah, three weeks later I came 30 minutes late to my first beginner's class. Right when they're doing the he turn, she turns and, yeah, did it seven times and never looked...

Transcript

I was on Facebook and I saw this post the other day where it was like it takes $25,000 to train a regular soldier and $2.5 million to train a navy seal and the point of the post was that you invest for the best. And I got to talking to Artia and Artia is obviously one of the best salsa dancers in the world and I asked him how much he thinks that he's spent over his career in development in becoming the dancer that he's become. And we broke it down and we discovered that he'd been dancing for 10 years or developing for 10 years and over that 10 years he'd spent approximately, like he'd have to add it up to get the exact number, but approximately $80,000 in training. So flights, including flights, flying to other parts of the world. He flew and he lived in Milan for a few months there as well and he trained every day in Milan as well.

So, private lessons, coaching rom different instructors, classes of...
