Taiwan Salsa Festival 2006
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 different ways........  click here


On Judging for the AC Dance Salsa Examinations... Fair? Or unfair? click here
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"...

Salsadaily have been reporting salsa News in Singapore since 2002 click here




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 street dance. 

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.  click here

For dancers who are taking salsa at a more relax and social pace can consider Acdance certification which have 10 different levels. For details click here
