Ever since I first started salsa, I kept hearing about this magical thing called a 'Salsa Mojo'. Instantly I wanted one. I was stuck clumsily mamboing away, often over the feet of my patient leads, and invariably going the wrong way at every turn! BUT, I was having a super awesome time, so I stuck at it!
Slowly...I found my Salsa Mojo - the thing I'd heard so much about - and pretty much wanted to show it off at every opportunity! There was this lovely fluency between my leads and I and the music wasn't just a pleasant noise, but something that carried me along. I was having the best time ever, until.... BAMM! My Salsa Mojo rudely got up and deserted me!
Suddenly, I couldn't do anything - if only I could put that damn Salsa Mojo in a jar (preferably as pictured)!! Salsa Mojo or no Salsa Mojo, I still went to classes and still had an awesome time whether it was with me or not!
As I've been going along to classes, socials and events for quite sometime now, I have often questioned if I had placed too much importance on my Salsa Mojo when I first started dancing? It is afterall intangible...does it even exist? I don't want to spark a major philosophical debate, but can a constant quest for a mojo hold us up? Should we not just try to enjoy all of our dances? It is after all a very special thing that we all have the ability to dance and that we enjoy it so much.
So guys, Salsa Mojo: real deal or figment of our imagination?
