LDC Podcast #32: "The mambo we dance and the salsa we eat" Eddie Torres
Eddie Torres also known as "The Mambo King" is a living legend in the Latin dance community. He has trained world-famous salseros like Adolfo Indacochea, Wilton Beltre and Eddie Torres, Jr. Along with June Laberta, Eddie developed what we call New York style salsa where dancers break "on 2". He danced alongside and collaborated with Tito Puente. Like we said, a living legend. Here is part 2 of our interview with Eddie at the Chicago Salsa Congress. If you haven't checked out part 1, do it!

Interesting and nuanced take on salsa
I feel like most salsa videos/resources just show moves, footwork, etc (you know, the stuff dance studios typically teach). This podcast talks about other aspects (i.e. social interaction, personal goal setting, etc.).
Especially like Rob's background, bringing in pop business/management/self-help book references when necessary
