    Island of La Gomera - (Tenerife, Spain) -- development of a new dance like Salsa -- show the dance at a public fiesta -- teaching the dance to everybody on the fiesta ---

    Hello my dears ! We are Boa & Harald

    Looking for a female dance partner, who develops a new dance together with me, Harald, -- 2 hours a day -- so that we can perform this at a public festival on a voluntary basis.

    And to offer a free dance class to all people on the fiesta.

    In addition we need a dance couple for the same purpose - so that we are 2 couples dancing.

    The new dance is called Salsita - the little sister of salsa. A simplified form of salsa that everyone can learn in a very short time. Many people already within 3 songs !!! (while salsa needs 3 weeks!). Just as from the opera arises the opereta -- from salsa arises salsita.

    With your help !!!

    A super nice sponsor kindly makes his motorhome available, which is very simply furnished, but there is all what you need: 2 beds, which are not narrow, can also be combined as a double bed, kitchen with gas stove, refrigerator, solar power, fresh water , Hot water, sink, shower, toilet, all with proper sewage disposal, heater, electricity for Internet, very good network coverage (4G) for Internet. But you can not drive it away.

    If you come alone, or as a couple, then you use this, exclusively for you. (if your male partner does not dance, just ask -- we might find a solution). When people come in addition, we put up a tent for them, and they use your shower, and your toilet. But not more. If no extra people come, then you have the motorhome for you alone, no bathroom share. --- No matter where you sleep, it's completely free!

    Now the catch: you have to be able to dance salsa! Because that's what Salsita builds on. (not important wether Cuban, LA, New York etc.). Average level is enough. --- Please tell us how many songs you have danced Salsa already, etc. -----
    Please note: we mean couple dance -- not one person dancing alone ! !

    My wife does not mind that; she is not a dancer type person. --- My wife and me, we are married since 23 years. I am retired (retired - not tired !!!), 1,68 metres. German origin.

    Please remember: just dance; nothing else!

    -------- CORONA - UPDATE ------- (1st of September, 2022)
    Presently, there are no very significant restrictions any more. But we dance outside, and don't talk while dancing, so it should be okay. No mask necessary ---- In the time before we developed a dance which was helpful in corona times: ---- "Coronita" instead of Salsita -- always keeping 1,5 meters distance between dance partners. With an elastic rubber band. It's very funny ! We have 4 lovely figures already ! Dancers had not to leave dancing while corona was active ! ! ! It's nearly same fun as traditional dance ! ---- Nowadays "Coronita" is not necessary any more, as we can dance what we want. But if you like, we can teach it to you, just for fun.

    (now corona update finished -- original text goes on).

    Everyone dances with everyone - including other people from the area who are involved in the Salsita project, if there are any at that time. This is a volunteer project - not for making money ! Everything is free ! The purpose is to help young people find their way back to couple dance. Not everyone has the opportunity or the money for a salsa course. Dancing as a couple should be accessible for everybody -- including disabled people !!!

    That's why we create Salsita -- "Salsa" for everyone !!!! --- "Salsa Light" --- salsa simplificada --- We have been making a similar contribution to the cultural program for many years with a wood engraving workshop and artichoke presentation. Together with the Municipal Cultural Department. --- And now we want to add this dance project.

    The whole island is very varied and fantastic for hiking!
    Diameter of the island: 25 km. The beach is 10 km away. There is a bus down there, and to San Sebastian. Hitchhiking posible -- not dificult, not easy.

    You can stay 1 or 2 weeks ! (if somebody is a real good dancer we can make an exception, up to 6 weeks. Maybe you have a dance video ??? )
    Dancing 2 hours per day, 7 days a week. (if that fails because of trips, etc., then please catch up later).
    Please excuse us: It has happened once (and we hope that doesn't happen again) that I had to teach a workawayer who really could not dance good enough. In that case, teaching time does not count as dancing time.
    Please dance with spirit, with fire - not boring ! For example, the way Cubans dance on the street.
    You need temperament !!! Salsita has power ! It requires enthusiasm ! It's not like Merengue ! --- This is more important than strictly according to the rules of the dance schools.

    It should be fun ! It should not be considered work. If nothing new comes out at the end, that's fine, too.

    You should not get seasick, or dizzy, from the spins of the Salsa Cubana and your feet, knees, elbows, etc. should be able to handle that. We don't want to risk your health ! And you should not be tired after continuosly dancing 3 songs. If you are tired generally, it makes no sense.

    Some more info about the project:

    First task: To develope the dance. That can need some weeks or more than a year. We don't know it.

    We shall find out, which figures are easy to learn for low talented people. Which are exciting figures on the other side.

    To find a compromise between easy and exciting.

    There should be maybe only 5 figures. For the first level. Everybody should know these 5 figures.

    For instance: vuelta afuera, enchufla doble, Una y dos, coca cola, medio sombrero.

    The steps are not 123 ... 567 -- but only 1111111.

    "is there anyone who cannot count to three ???" ---- "You ???" ------ Please say "One" ------ "One" ----- "You have passed the examination. You can count to One, you can learn Salsita !"

    Second task: to find a way how to teach it (it sounds easy, but everybody learns different).

    Third task: Let's say we are lucky and a Comisón de Fiestas accepts our idea -- here an example:

    We set off at 10 o'clock to Hermigua, fiesta San José -- 1 hour. We say hello to everybody -- 1 hour. We begin to perform the dance, and at the same time we invite everybody to join. And we teach salsita. 2 hours. (maybe 4 hours ?). We stay at the general part of the fiesta. 5 hours. We drive back home -- 1 hour.

    Your dancing time that day is 2 hours, as usual. (or maybe 4 hours ?).

    We don't know when it would be -- not even if it would be, because we don't know wether there is a fiesta which fits at the time you come. And wether the Comisión accepts our idea, or it rains ... or ... whatever.

    We take it easy. If it doesn' happen now, we do it later.
    But we do it ! The dance is worth it !!!

    I am a totally uncomplicated, humorous guy ! I'm over 60, but the last one who is tired at the salsa parties, that's me ! I am an engineer, contractor (restore old farmhouses) and book publisher. 1.68 m tall. (your size does not matter so much - very tall / small, okay.) Huge not so good, but big mental size no hindrance.

    I do not smoke; if you want to smoke, then please outside the motorhome.

    Please don't forget: just dance; nothing else!

    Climate: As in Germany in May. (also like a cold May, and rain, possible).
    Please do not bring a dog. Sorry, we can not provide the food. Please cook your own food. Very well stocked supermarket very close.

    It would be ideal if we could dance as a test -- but not so important, if you tell me how many songs you have been dancing, and what you have danced, etc. - possibly a photo.
    Sometimes I spend some days in Munich, Germany, e.g. in the Circulo, in the Max Emanuel, in the Nachtkantine or in the OnStage, Salsabor or elsewhere, and also in Augsburg, at the main station or at Emilito.

    How to get there: --- --- to Tenerife South TFS --- 60 Euro to 260 Euro per person round trip --- (or --- de --- --- --- and others).
    Bus from Tenerife south airport to Los Cristianos ferry port (about 15 km) 4 euros, or taxi 20 euros one way.
    Ferry , ---- ----- from Los Cristianos to San Sebastian de La Gomera (about 75 min) 37 euros one way. (Watch out, expensive!!! --- Go + return 75 euros).

    Bus from San Sebastian to our place, 5 Euros. If there is none, then I come by car and pick you up.
    I will send you a very accurate arrival information, etc.

    So the Salsita feet ever in the starting holes!
    The dance season is from the 28th of October, 2022, onwards.
    We look forward to seeing you !!!

    Please also think of other dancers who also like to go, but can not, because they are just short of cash. It would be a pity if they had to stay at home !!!
    If you are not yet sure wether you dance good enough, or the dance might be too quick, or wether this is a safe place, especially if you come alone, then just tell us. We can give you more information, reference of many other dancers who have joined us already, video, etc. We want that you are well informed -- we are very reliable in this point.

    Happy to hear from you ! Boa & Harald --- last update 1st of September, 2022

    You (female) should be dance partner, to develop a new dance, similar to salsa. 2 hours per day, (just dancing, nothing else!!!). And maybe perform it at a public festival, teaching it to the public, on a voluntary base.
    You, a dance couple, should do the same.
