Jake shares stage with legendary New Swing Sextet - June 2014!

On June 14, 2014, the legendary New Swing Sextet from New York City played a special show at Cafe Cocomo. This band has made great music for 49 years and it is also an inspiration for Jake's own VibraSON band! Jake was thrilled to share the stage for a song with the band that night too! It's a great band with great guys! Thx!

Bongo Where's The Beat?!

Having trouble hearing the beat?! Know your Clave from your Conga?? Confused about the count??!  Check out our new Hearing the Beat page for some help... including a Salsa rhythm Tutorial for lear

ning more about the music you hear every time you dance and JAKESBOOTCAMP, a new online based learning site! Need basic music theory? Check out http://www.smu.edu/totw/rhythm.htm or links to some good basic books on the same page...


bongo2Aplauso! Please Read a short Memo on Musician Appreciation by Jake...


For a quick laugh, Check out our Dance Humor page!

 

Troubled by the "On-1 vs. On-2" chatter about dancing? We hear you. We teach and dance mainly On-1, the timing you'll find 90% of dancers in California dancing.. That being said, many of the 'hardcore' dancers dance on 2 and it feels good too! Learning to dance on both rhythms is a great idea for your own versatility, but we highly recommend to be very good at one BEFORE trying the other! The instruction is quite different for each of the styles. By learnng one first, and understanding the music, the switch or transition is much more easy...


What do women want from men? Dancing! That's what. See www.dancedancedance.com/whatwomen.htm for more. . .
