August 14, 2006

Friday night a group of us from Salsabor Canberra hit up Zen Yai restaurant for a banquet and scoped out Salsa nights at the Holy Grail in the city. Here’s a photo, thanks Liz!

And here’s one of me upset and Cromz trying to say sorry for stealing my girl! Haha

More photo’s to come when I get them off the other cameras…


Butterfly Effect Concert at Australian National University bar

August 1, 2006

On Saturday we cruised to the Butterfly Effect concert at the ANU, which is an awesome Australian rock band from Brisbane, who have toured with the likes of Killing Heidi and Grinspoon… They put on a top show for us and they hit us up with some mad beats. Check out for more info on the band. Some friends dragged me into the moshpit for a while, I haven’t done that crap since uni and I just don’t get it any more! What’s the attraction of rubbing up against a bunch of manky stinky guys and girls that are all drenched in eachothers filthy sweat? How are you supposed to enjoy a great band and their great music when you’re too busy pushing and shoving every schmuck away from you to ensure you don’t get an elbow or shoulder in the head? Sorry to all you jocktards but I’d much rather watching from a distance with a beer and friends or be leading a Givenchy perfume wearing hot latin babe like J-Lo around the dancefloor in the proper atmosphere!


Dancing with beginners

July 23, 2006

Last night it was Angie’s birthday (Happy birthday Angie!) and around 15 of us went to dinner and then we hit up toast nightclub in the city. It was a great night because we got to know and dance with some new beginner Salseros and Salseras, which is always fun. I really enjoy dancing with beginners because I feel as though we get a lot out of it. The beginner gets a better feel for how the dance works through dancing with a more experienced dancer. At the same time it really challenges me in getting them to follow the moves that I lead through giving them the appropriate signals that are obvious enough for them to understand. While it’s cool to hit up the floor with another more experienced dancer and really dazzle the audience with your flawlessly executed moves, I think the true test of whether someone makes a good dancer is how well they can lead a less experienced follower through the moves that they want them to do.
