At a dance studio recently, I sat with a lovely salsa partner of mine as we watched her new boyfriend struggle through a beginner’s On2 class with Robbie Sky. During our conversation, she told me an interesting story.
It seems this young man began pursuing her affections last summer. After they had gone out on a few dates, she told him he had to learn salsa, because a non-dancing significant other was a deal-breaker.
His replied: “Whatever it takes” and began lessons.
Later she told him: “I don’t know if we are going to make it as a couple or not; time will tell. But even if we don’t make it, you’ll always remember me, because I introduced you to salsa.”
