This has been a week of news and announcements: our school opened and our regular classes started this week. Also this week, we’ve introduced a few new categories to this blog, to help you on your dance journey:
Mondays will generally be reserved for school announcements, news from around the Ottawa dance community, and upcoming events. Have an event to promote? Let us know, and we’ll post it in our school – then head over to Couch Assassin and let the wider world know as well!
Dance Tips & Resources will give you pointers on how to enhance your dancing, every Tuesday. Got a burning question about dance technique, etiquette, wardrobe, shoes, or handling strange dance-related experiences? Drop us a line and we’ll try our best to answer it!
On Wednesdays, you’ll find new Music, Culture & History articles to give you a glimpse into where Latin dances came from and what you’re dancing to in class and at salsa parties.
On Thursdays you’ll get to know your teachers a bit better – starting next week, we’ll post teacher profiles of everyone who teaches with us, which will alternate with teacher polls – where we get our teachers to tell us everything from their favourite dance shoes to their proudest and least proud moments as a dancer. For now, you can find out a bit about our teachers by checking out our About Us page on the Azúcar! web site.
Finally, on Fridays we’ll celebrate the weekend by giving you Quick Tips to amp up your dancing over the next few days, and share other tidbits of interest.
We need your help!
We’re doing our best to make this blog into an informative resource for all dancers, new and veteran salseros alike. But we need your feedback to know how we’re doing and to keep improving. So comment on our posts, start a conversation, and add your own tips to what we write here. Your contributions will only make us better!
Let’s start with: what do you think of our new blog structure? What section do you look forward to the most, and what could we do without?
