This is it. I laughed so hard during these salsa satire videos. They are nothing short of brilliant.

It's been quite some time since we've seen anyone do any really solid satire of the salsa dance community (and we do have a funny as hell community). These videos really do it justice! If anyone remembers, SalsaMafia.com, that was a brilliant site offering fantastic and funny comedy and reflection of the "salsa scene". That site disappeared years ago, and this is a worthy successor!

Congratulations to my friend Jake (www.SalsabyJake.com) for coming up with these fantastic videos. His 15+ years of teaching salsa to an absurd (100k+) number of people, makes him the perfect authority to produce such an insightful and funny piece.

ENJOY, and DISCUSS, below!

Ok, here's a mishmash of thoughts, ideas, and posts …

First off, the Salsa Cruise! Exciting … Our next cruise is approaching fast, and this salsa cruise is huge. It's our biggest dance cruise yet, and it's 9 days to South America, leaving out of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and even has a layover of a day in Buenos Aires.

You can see the salsa cruise on Facebook, or see the Salsa Cruise Website. Ideally, you'll want to check and join both.

The cruise is almost sold out, and since it's so massive, requires some pretty serious planning. If you are considering it, you must start planning now.

And yes, I know, a lot have asked for another Caribbean cruise! We're on it, and expect our next cruise to sail (after this one) in September of 2011. Details may be coming shortly!

As for Hawaii, this is huge. There's not a person reading this whom shouldn't be planning to join us in Hawaii (that's a double negative – yikes). To put it simply, you should be coming on this incredible dance vacation. This vacation is for you, it's cheap, and it's fun, and it's … well … it's in Hawaii!

See the Hawaii Salsa Festival website!

Really, this is a great vacation, and highly recommended. It will give you a chance to try out your brand new salsa shoes, but really, who wears salsa shoes on a beach (or by the pool for that matter). Great music and great social dancing highlight this event, year after year.

Get your early bird tickets now …

Finally, Bachata! The bachata dance craze is taking over the world. Really, it seems like it's taking over the world. Everywhere I turn, there are bachata festivals popping up. Have you noticed this?

Salsa Shoes! Yes, that's the topic of this post …

Actually, I just want to introduce a new blog, and a post about salsa shoes, and their change over time. Yes, salsa dancing shoes have changed over time, and this posts tracks a little tongue in cheek history of club style salsa shoes through the last twenty years.

You can read about it over at my new salsa dancing shoes blog.

Yes, the Hawaii Salsa Festival is Salsa in Paradise!

The first of many surprises is now out in the open as the Hawaii Salsa Festival has been unveiled for March 17-20th, 2011 with headliners Jimmy Bosch and Yoko, along with dozens of the finest dance teachers, performers, and teachers from around the world.

Throw in a thousand or so of our closest friends, on one of the most beautiful islands on the planet, and you have the biggest salsa dance party you can imagine. This stellar event, now in its fifth year, is always fun, social, and the perfect vacation for beginner and advanced alike. It's friendly and social in such a way that only the Hawaiian Islands can provide.

The Hawaii Salsa Festival brings the best in salsa dancing, salsa music, and stellar vacation into one cohesive event. There's simply nothing like it. Early bird pricing has just gone up, and you have a limited time to grab your tickets and start planning for the event!

We really want to see YOU there! We know it's going to be completely sold out, both the hotel, and even flights to the Island, so we want you to plan WELL in advance (as in … Now). Please don't wait to book this.
