Salsa is a key element of life in Cali, Colombia.

make the dancing both untamed and
Uno, dos, tres, baile!
Sebastian Guisao, a salsa instructor
in Cali, took two years of non-stop
training to master the dance and
now teaches salsa to young students
at a school in Cali.
When asked what the key to
learning salsa was, Guisao said it
took a lot of practice and dedication
but that salsa was a sensual, pas-
sionate dance that focused on
women being seductive, and men
assisting to show them at their best.
"For the women, it is about the
hips," he said. "Men focus their
movements in their legs."
"The girls are the ones that shine
on stage. The man s role in salsa is
to help the woman shine.
Salsa may be a sensual flirtatious
dance but Calenos (people from Cali)
take it very seriously. In Cali, one
can make a living as a professional
dancer or instructor, despite the fact
that Guisao says their Government
does not give much financial support
to the art.
"The people here love salsa. They
know how to dance from very young
but they still want to learn the cor-
rect ways to do it, for fun and for
One of those competitions is the
World Salsa Festival held in Cali in
early August every year. The festival,
a free event, attracts salsa dancers
from several Latin American coun-
tries including Peru and Ecuador,
and attracts thousands of spectators,
who go to the arena of the Plaza del
Toros, some equipped with drums
and forming rhythm sections to sup-
port their favourites.
The salsa festival competitions
this year included three days of
dancing, couples, cabaret and group,
and began with a celebration of salsa
icon Celia Cruz.
The show, which attracted Colom-
bian celebrities, such as actress Car-
olina Ramirez was a spectacular dis-
play of undulating hips, powerful
leg movements, bodies flung through
the air and passionate expressions.
And if the World Salsa Festival
isn t enough for salsa and dancing
enthusiasts, of the many festivals in
the city, there is also the Petronia
Alvarez festival, which celebrates the
city s black culture and music.
In October, the city will also cel-
ebrate Baile Cali!, a one-month long
festival celebrating Latin American
Kalifa's trip to Cali, Colombia,
