Eduardo: If you’re looking to either 1, learn to dance salsa or make friends. This is the perfect, perfect club for you. Yesenia: It’s like an escape from reality Just being here, going to practice, it’s a big sense of relief. It makes me feel happy to know that wherever I go I have these people there, wherever I go I’m going to have music, there’s going to be dancing. It’s a happy place for me. Eduardo: You need absolutely zero dance experience to join Salsa Libre. People come with lots of experience, little experience, they think that salsa is something you eat with chips, and hey, we welcome that too. Yesenia: To join Salsa Libre you just need to have fun. We’re always telling new potential members “just have fun”. If they see that you’re smiling, if they see that you’re actually enjoying dancing, you’ll get in for sure. Eduardo: My background in dance I’d say would be family parties. When I was little I’d always be the weird kid dancing by myself in the corner to Merengue, Punta, and Cumbia, so I was always that weird one sticking out dancing, but now I found other weird kids to dance with as well. Yesenia: Well, I never had experience with Salsa or Bachata before I joined. For bachata, it was just the basic steps that I knew, side to side, but ever since I joined I definitely improved a Lot Even just within the one year, the first year that I was in it. Yes, I definitely got better Eduardo: Lots of the people that come to the club are pretty introverted. I’d say after at least a semester of being in the club, people shined in ways they never thought they would It definitely gets people out of their comfort zone and into a zone of vulnerability and it gets people to have fun. The best part would probably be having so many people I can call friends now. Yesenia: Knowing that you’ll always have someone there, if it’s just one person or the whole team wherever you go, you know that someone is always down to do something. No matter what we’re always going to dance, no matter where we go, if it’s a parking lot, a restaurant, or whatever, we’re always going to be dancing. I like that whole family setting. Eduardo: Salsa Libre is a Family it’s a really really big family with lots of brothers and sisters. You have your wacky cousins and your kooky aunts and uncles. Yesenia: It’s definitely a very welcoming environment that no matter who you are, no matter what experience or background you have, you will always be a part of us. It becomes part of your lifestyle. No matter where you go, you’re always going to see a familiar face. Its definitely an everlasting memory.
