Welcome to Episode 111 of the Salsa Kings LIVE podcast

We have been featured as #1 in “Top 10 Salsa Podcasts” on FeedSpot.

Welcome to “According to Us,” an episode that explores the concept of multiple perspectives and their impact on our interactions. Today, we delve into the world of Latin dance, where there are three sides to the story: your side, their side, and the truth. Join us as we unravel the importance of understanding diverse viewpoints and the significance of effective communication on the dance floor.

Key Points:

  1. Multiple Perspectives: 
  • In various situations, including Latin dance, there are multiple perspectives at play. 
  • Just like Andres’ 7th-grade history teacher explained, there are three sides to a story. 
  • The three sides are your side, their side, and the truth.
  1. Perception vs. Reality: 
  • What you believe happened on the dance floor may differ from what your partner believes, and both may differ from what actually happened.
  • It’s crucial to recognize that your perspective is not the only one and that everyone’s perception may vary.
  • Understanding this requires humility and a willingness to consider the thoughts, actions, and beliefs of others.
  1. Leaving a Positive Interaction:
  • It is essential to ensure that your dance partner leaves the interaction in a positive place.
  • Recognize that even if you think you did a good job, the other person might not share the same sentiment.
  • Constantly check in and “check your results” by observing your partner’s facial expressions and non-verbal cues.
  • Non-verbal communication plays a significant role in dancing, so be mindful even when focused on your moves.

“When we are talking about Latin dance, there are three sides to the story or the dance: your side, their side, and the truth.”
“It’s important to enter dancing with a humble mindset, knowing that even if we think we did a good job, the other person might not agree.”

Closing Thoughts:
In the world of Latin dance, acknowledging and respecting multiple perspectives is key to fostering positive interactions. By understanding that your perception may differ from your partner’s, you open yourself up to empathy and effective communication. So, next time you hit the dance floor, remember to check your results, stay mindful, and embrace the rich tapestry of experiences that dance brings. After all, the truth lies not only in your steps but also in the stories of those who dance beside you.
