Salsa Lessons in Medellin, Colombia [VIDEO]

In Adventure Travel, After Dark, Culture & Food, Featured, How To, Issues & Failures, T2T Exclusive by Gareth30 Comments

My biggest goal while living in Medellin, Colombia was to trade in my gringo shuffle for some latin coordination by taking salsa lessons during the day and practicing on unsuspecting Colombian women at night.

Unlike the States, you can’t go to a nightclub and just sit around. Dancing is a must if you want to meet fit in with locals (and meet women/men).

After a few weeks of private salsa classes at a quiet place in my neighborhood of Envigado, I was able to get by at night without stepping on anyone’s toes or getting booed off the dance floor.

After a few months of salsa dancing around different nightclubs in Medellin, I felt comfortable jumping up and dancing with anyone.

I still have a long way to go to catch my salsa steps up to my reggaeton rhythm (which is more like good ‘ol fashion grinding in the States), but I feel like I’m on my way.

I enjoy Salsa a lot more than the Tango I was dancing in Buenos Aires because it seems to be more loose and fun than the structured seriousness of Tango (although both are wicked sexy).

Hopefully within the next few years I can get back to Colombia and visit Cali, the Salsa capital of Colombia, to hone my moves and then venture to Cuba to see how they rock the Salsa.

Until then, I’ll keep working on my skills and I’ll do a follow-up video for you all to see the transformation from this video, my first Salsa lesson in Medellin.

My First Salsa Lesson in Medellin, Colombia

Info on Salsa Lessons in Medellin:

I took my salsa lessons from GozArte in Envigado, but I had some friends took private lessons from Baila Latina in the Poblado neighborhood of Medellin.

There are also a number of group classes around the city at various nightclubs, like Cien Fuegos.

Medellin is also host to the annual Colombia Salsa Festival, so that’s a great time of the year to go and practice.

      I totally understand Steph. Hopefully, I’ll be able to find a few salsa spots while I’m back in the States to keep me moving until I can get back into lessons and dancing on a regular basis.

      I heard great things about the event Karen… I gotta get to Cali soon to see how they dance because I heard it’s much faster than how they teach and dance in Medellin.

      No time for taping once I hit the d. floor. Next time I’m in Medellin, I definitely will. Maybe we can shoot something together in Cuba.

    Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email joylovespell@gmail.com. and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on joylovespell@gmail.com. because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you.

    My husband is my hero, he saved our marriage and my heart from an unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    The problem was that I jumped into marriage from a fresh breakup, I never allowed my heart to heal, that’s why I was heavily hunted and distracted to a point that I almost abandoned my husband and our 2 beautiful daughters to my ex. Look how stupid I was to think that my beloved husband of 5 years can be replaced by a bad ass ex-boyfriend.
    My husband proved that real men still exist despite all the embarrassment I brought to him, he didn’t let go, he rather worked with Dr. Wakina through his love spell to untie me from the unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    Now my eyes are open to cherish the beautiful family I have, I also realized the meaning of true love. I’m hoping to do more than what Dr. Wakina via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com did for me.
    Thanks to my husband for letting me share this story.
    Remain blessed.
