So, I heard that a good place to do salsa was at the Amara hotel and Union Square. I went there with another latin friend.
Maybe it is a cultural thing, maybe is a new salsa dancing style and I am getting to old...but I could not dance my salsa
Why? well, looks like people here pretty much dance 'alone'. I did not see many couples dancing really as couple. Sometimes I have the impression they need a partner to justify that they salsa alone
or that they want to dance to me observed as a lone-talet, bringing all the eyes to him/herself instead the actuall couple...
myself...I love to dance salsa, and lambada, and forro...but the main requirement for these are: you should have body contact.
Cool thing at the amara hotel. I went to the bar to have a drink, then I was there enjoying my soda (yeah, yeah..I can't take alcohool
) when this couple started to dance about 2 meters from me at the table. Weird, they clearly trying to impress me with their dancing. And they did dance very well. The problem here is, they were not dancing, they were giving a particular show for the people there and myself...and forgot the main purpose, which is: dance togheter and have fun.
Is it just me that was not lucky to get the right ladies or the girls here just do salsa at a minimal distance of 30 cm from the partner?
