On The Road to San Francisco, California

I will be in San Francisco, California next week starting Nov 15-20th, 2008. I've enjoyed the time I've spent in the bay area when I've attended the San Francisco Salsa Congress over the years, even though it was really in downtown Oakland. However, because I'll be attending the Adobe MAX 2008 Conference (for my real day job), I'm excited to see a the real showcasing of the San Francisco night time salsa scene. If anyone has any suggestions to where to go dancing during those nights - I would really appreciate it! You can leave any info in the comments....

Take the lead (or follow?)

Take the lead (or follow?)

One of my favorite things to see when I'm out social dancing or watching a performance is a woman who can lead or a guy who can follow. I think there's a bit of pride, maybe a bit of machismo (sorry guys) and a bit of apprehension (sorry girls) when it comes to changing the traditional lead and follow roles and I think that's really a shame. For one thing, learning to follow if you're a lead or vice versa is so helpful improving your skills. You get insights into the job of your usual partners that you just can't get any other way. For another, I love to see salsa that's off the beaten path - whether it's from fusion with another dance (Swing Guys, anyone?), themed performances, or doing a little lead/follow switcheroo....
