Oh Fantastic! West Coast Salsa info - or any salsa info for that matter is very thrilling. Also I am looking for a way to go to Cuba for a dance intensive of some kind. Focusing primarily on salsa. Do you know of how to do this as an American? Any good ideas from anywhere would be swell. (and as far as Cuba classes- I don't speak spanish but I'm certainly willing to give it my best)
