Dancing Solutions to Energize Your Life by Claus Franz Overbeck is an A-Z guide that dives into the world of salsa dancing and many other Afro-Latino dances. Easy to read, SalsafyYour Life does more than just teach the reader the steps to each dance. Overbeck also provides a history behind each move and the thought process that goes into it, inviting the reader on a journey of fun and self discovery, while also showing what truly makes us human and connects all of us together. Overbeck also gives the reader a glimpse into the history of Santeria and how it connects with dance.
I feel that Overbeck’s love for dance really shows through in his ability to bring out the heart and soul of it, all while making it easy for a dancer at any level to learn.
Throughout Salsafy Your Life: Dancing Solutions to Energize Your Life, Overbeck keeps the tone light and fun, encouraging the reader to feel the dance and enjoy themselves. Using a minimalist and non-intrusive approach throughout, Overbeck manages to capture the essence of each dance and convey this to the reader without weighing them down in torrents of florid prose. Salsafy Your Life: Dancing Solutions to Energize Your Life by Claus Franz Overbeck crafts a simple yet powerful book, a starter guide, if you will, that is sure to sit with the reader long after the last page is turned. I enjoyed it and think it will be a great read for anyone looking to ‚salsafy‘ their life.
