the effect of increasing the dancers’ sphere of
awareness. To dance rueda, one has to be very alert- to
the commander who calls the shots as well as to the
other couples in the circle. by Matthew Sng click here

Taiwan Salsa Festival
Juz came back from Taiwan... Superb place! Lots of food,
clothes, frenly ppl... The Taiwan Salsa Fest was a great
blast! It was small, but real cosy. We met Israel and
Juan Carlos who are both really fantastic Cuban dancers.
They way they isolate their shoulders and bodies just
make you gulp... and drool. The great thing about taking
part in overseas festivals is that you get to see the
On Judging for the AC
Dance Salsa Examinations... Fair? Or
I heard some comments about the judging criteria for the
salsa exams. I'd like to say one thing from my previous
experience in Ballet examinations. Our ballet examiners
are brought in from overseas (mostly from UK) to judge
in the different schools. They are always different
people, and they all have their own marking preferences.
I recall my ballet teacher saying things like, "this
examiner likes expression", or "this examiner is very
strict on technique"...
Asia Top Salsera Yanqing is featured

It was tough man.

News in Singapore since 2002
Salsa Academy was set up to meet the need for
a central examination body for salsa. From the start, the aim of
the Academy has been clear: to be the premier certification and
regulating body for the fledging international salsa scene.
Through our activities, certificates, examinations, seminars,
quality modules and promotion of the art of dance, we hope to
bring about a confluence of ideas in salsa and invibe a sense of
coherence in what is essentially an evolving, free flowing
Salsa Academy recognises that salsa’s appeal
lies in the very fact that it is a “free” and constantly
progressing dance. This is perhaps salsa’s greatest strength.
Salseros are free to develop their own techniques, improvise new
moves, and introduce their own styles into the dance. No one
owns salsa. It belongs to everyone and yet no one. All around
the globe, one cannot help but observe the diversity of the
dance: LA, Columbian, New York and Cuban are but examples of the
myriad of salsa styles. Salsa Academy embraces this and realises
in the deepest sense what an asset this is to salsa.
Our vision, therefore, is not to bring in a strict set of rules
to regulate the dance, but to bring a sense of order and
organisation to it. Through that, we hope the picking up,
excelling in, and performing the dance would become far more
rewarding and enjoyable than it is right now. Specifically, the
Academy has its sights grounded soundly in the professional
salsa scene. We believe that by raising the professional
understanding and execution of the dance, we would invariably
raise its standards and appeal in social circles.
For dancers who are taking
salsa at a more relax and social pace can consider Acdance
certification which have 10 different levels. For details
