Black Belt Salsa is a World Class Salsa curriculum that was created, and continues to be developed by our world-renowned instructor, Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!

Black Belt Salsa is the best system of learning to dance Salsa, because it guides the student step-by-step through the different stages of advancement, in a systematic method, emphasizing both simplicity, sensuality, and technique instead of complicated patterns and amalgamations.

The Black Belt Salsa curriculum is SYSTEM-based, instead of a pattern-based, which far exceeds any other method of LEARNING RETENTION.   This system allows for rapid learning, a more sensual version of Salsa, and focuses on the woman’s comfort, rather than difficult and complicated turn patterns that are difficult to follow.

Today was our first session with Edie and we were both truly taken back the world class instruction that we received.... Edie is a master of her craft and has developed a system that makes sense. It’s a rare opportunity to find a teacher this good and so close to home. My wife and I can’t wait to continue to grow and learn salsa!read more

Edie is great. She was very accommodating with dates and times and is obviously a very experienced dancer and... instructor. I scheduled a very romantic and fun Valentine’s Day private lesson and it earned me major brownie points. Highly recommend.read more

I have been taking private lessons for couple weeks now. The one on one really helps me grasp the footwork. I also... really like how you have it set up to be able to go back into the previous lessons on the online curriculum. Thank you for adding the online curriculum. Really helps me look back at things when I'm just at home. With everything going on. It helps me fit in when I'm on the go. Thank you so much.read more

While looking for a way to grow my dance skills, I struggled with the popular teaching method of learning dance... patterns. I would learn a dance pattern one week, then pick up the next part of the pattern the following week and so on. I suffer from severe Adult ADHD which makes remembering certain skills in the long term challenging. It also means I tend to be spontaneous. I may not follow the assigned pattern exactly in class.Black Belt Dance (BBD) has a different teaching philosophy. "Family of Movements." For example, we learn and teach 92 different ways to lead a turn in a systematic head to toe process. That alone captured my heart. I learned to structure our dance to the music according to the skill level of my partner and myself. The level of detail taught increased as I advanced. I never stop learning to be clearer, smoother, and more technical.Due to the techniques and level of detail learned in this system, I am often sought out by leads and follows at dance socials. I would have given up long ago had I been forced to learn the most common way of teaching.5 Stars from the bottom of my heart.read more

There are no words to say how appreciative I am of having learned this system. The Black Belt Salsa program simplifies... the learning process and has helped me gain confidence as a dancer and now an instructor. I strongly recommend Edie as she is a wonderful and patient instructor and exceptional dancer. Check this out. You won't be disappointed.read more

We took private classes with Edie and the only thing I can say is that she is the best salsa instructor ever! She is... very professional, dances like a queen and has a fantastic system that she invented to teach beginners or advanced dancers. I forgot to mention how much patience she has and on top of everything she is a lot of fun. She is the right instructor if you need to learn salsa and I promise you that after the classes you'll be able to dance and have fun dancing.read more

I have always been a fan of Salsa music and always hoped to be able to dance it one day; unlike Latinos, I did not have... the chance to learn walking and Salsa dancing as a baby; all I could is do is looking with envy at these talented people dancing Salsa as it would be the easiest and simplest thing to do, which is not.Salsa is one of the most difficult dance to learn.My wife and I decided to take private lessons, spending thousands of dollars on Salsa teachers who taught us single steps but after many months, we were still not able to dance.Edie the Salas Freak is the teacher of the teachers, not only because she is an incredibly talented Salsa dancer but because she spent a great amount of time collecting and classifying all the hundred Salsa moves into different levels called belts, like in Judo.Starting from easy (white belt), every single level has a structure, a perfectly organized system designed to help laypeople to become dancers and good dancers to reach the next higher level of perfection.Basically, each level has its graphic panel, explaining in a systematic way the different moves, classified in clusters, like high hands, shoulders etc. but also a video where Edie demonstrates and explains each move.You just need to look and select what you want or need, pretty much like a vending machine.This is exactly what we needed.We flew from sunny Florida to freezing Denver CO to spend 5 days @ 6 hours each with Edie.She is a marvelous personality who has tons of patience not only for explaining how to dance following her system but also to make out of you a good-looking dancer.That is not an easy task because knowing the technique does not make you a good dancer; I had to learn how to lead, making my partner understand what my next move is, based on my posture which was basically bad.To correct it was a big challenge.Edie is so professional showing patience that I would never be able to.A video made on the first and the last day shows the difference like night and day.I am now sitting in the plane on my way back to Florida.Not only we can dance Salsa but we have Edie’s system to improve what we learned with her, practicing 10 minutes a day, we will get much better.read more

Black Belt Salsa Testimonials

“From an accomplished world class athlete to an academic leader, my experiences have allowed me to critique body movement and teaching pedagogy.  Black Belt Dance will not only challenge world class athletes, Edie and her Apprentices will mold you into a world class dancer and instructor.  The attention to detail in instruction is perfect for beginners to top level dancers.

The non-intimidating, driven, and social environment creates a safe but fun experience for all ages. Edie made me Red Belt ready in less than a week.  I was dancing with top Denver dancers after one week of private instruction!  Give it a try!
Matthew Martinez, MA, MBA”

The term “Salsa”, when capitalized, refers to the dance.   By capitalizing the word Salsa, when referring to the dance and music, we give honor to the musicians, instructors, and dancers who have supported and grown this incredible movement all of these years.  From Tito Puente, to Willie Colon, to Celia Cruz and Ruben Blades…. we give our highest HONOR and RESPECT by capitalizing the word “Salsa” when referring to the dance.

When referring to the sauce, the word “salsa” is NOT capitalized.

Thank you.
– Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!

Why the Dance called Salsa is Capitalized, and the sauce called salsa is not capitalized.
