In case you didn't know, I've been over in Korea teaching English since June of 07. Generally speaking it's been fun but the best thing about it is the dancing is really spectacular over here. And I'll mention that there's still a big demand for more teachers. Basically all you need is a 4 year degree in anything.
It's a good deal and you can get more information here: www.asknow.ca/teach . But that's not the purpose of this post. A small but enthusiastic portion of the foreigners over here (like me) salsa dance in the huge number of excellent clubs here in Seoul. Although you'll still find a lot of that "LA Style stuff and that 'on 2' ridiculous-ness, one can still have a great time in most of the clubs.
There's a little bit of casino rueda going on. But not much. So, I'm going to crank up my activity on this blog again in hopes of getting some of my aquaintences and friends here on the same page as far as the patterns we're doing and how we're doing them.
I'm a member of a social group, www.seoullatindanceandsalsa.com and we have several sub-groups. Most of them are small and don't actually do very much. But we do have a few people who are interested in casino rueda.
I've decided to collect and feature as many good casino pattern videos as I can. I'll be grouping them into (probably) three groups: the first group will be the kinds of patterns that people usually learn the first few months in casino rueda. The second group will have more advanced patterns. Then, if we get that far, I'll have a third group of really hard core patterns. But frankly I don't think we'll get that far.
