    Very true, unfortunately, in my first 6 months of salsa, I danced with a very advanced leader, who flung me around like a dish rag, and started telling me what I was doing wrong in the middle of the dancefloor. When I see him approach me know, I run in the other direction!

    excuse my saying this, timbafreak... but that was no advanced leader!
    this also happened to me when I started dancing Salsa!
    and let me tell you, now I wouldn't dance with those guys in a million years!
    not only have they not improved, they are still giving lessons on the dance floor! gee... :evil: :evil: :evil: :argue: this is no attitude on the dance floor!
    and you'd better not dance with that guy again! he has serious attitude problems! :twisted: don't worry, you'll triumph one day! And he'll be sooooooooooooo sorry! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    Squirrel's absolutely right, Timbafreak.
    When I danced with a very advanced leader for the first time, also in my first 6 months of salsa, he really opened my eyes to salsa dancing. It really felt like dancing, I was able to do things I'd never learned, and I was inspired.

    A very advanced leader should:
    - be able to adjust his dancing so his partner wouldn't feel she's totally out of her depth,
    - be able to make sure his partner enjoy the 3 minutes with him,
    - not fling anyone around like a dish rag -- the leader's supposed to make the follower look and, as SC says, feel good, and,
    - never, ever, give unsolicited advice during the dance.

    Timbafreak, you are perfectly right to give him a wide berth.

    The original recording was in the first Tributo A Chano Pozo cd. It was a instrumental recording meant for teaching. The cd's tracks were divided in percussion as in bongo, timbal, conga, etc. Then it all came together in the final track called Cuero Na' Ma. Later Jose recorded the track with lyrics. The original cd is hard to find but not for me. Salsa hits 2002 has the tune but the composer listed is in error, thus a little dispute. Seems that Tito Puente also did a tune called Cuero Na' ma, but both songs are completely different.
