Quite possibly may have been that we did other dances other than salsa. Could have given us the reputation of not being hard core (which we aren't) and kept people away from us. Don't know. Snobby - definitely. We thought it strange that people could dance only salsa for hours on end, but we didn't judge them to be lesser than we were. We actually quite enjoyed watching! But we just couldn't penetrate into the crowd. We've now given up and just go to less crowded clubs and dance with each other. At least we get looks of appreciation from the freestyle clubbers!
