About the Author
I remember the times when I was a reluctant salsa dancer. Some guys can jump right in and salsa dancing fit them like gloves. On the other hand I was just a bit uncomfortable with dancing. But the salsa scene helped tremendously. There were classes popping up everywhere. They helped. The salsa music was terrific. It helped. There were plenty women willing to dance. Without a doubt, they were inspirational. However, I needed just a bit more. I needed something to help me remember which way my feet were supposed to go. Long story short, I learned how to salsa dance. My confidence improved as I began teaching willing dancers how to get their feet going in the right direction. Sometime during that process I wrote books about salsa dancing. It’s unbelievable. But even more astounding is this: there came a time in my life in which I had an idea. Here they are.
