    What’s Latin American, classy, and downright sexy? No, we’re not talking about Salma Hayek – it’s SALSA! This popular dance style evolved from several different dance forms like the Mambo, and Cha-Cha-Cha, and before long took over the world as one of the most fun and enjoyable dance styles there is. If you’ve ever been tempted to learn salsa, we give you 6 reasons why you definitely should do that!

    You Get To Make New Friends

    Salsa has evolved as a social happening and thus provides a great chance to meet new people. Since in most lessons, you are required to frequently switch your partners, it also acts as an ideal ice breaker. Win-win! You make new friends and learn a fantastic dance form too!

    Gym is Boring, Salsa Isn’t

    Doing the salsa requires you to move around continuously. Imagine an hour of dancing and you burn up to 500 calories! It’s a proper workout, that helps strengthen muscles, tone down your body, and it is an absolute enjoyment!

    No More Awkward Silences

    Don’t have anything to talk about? Discuss your salsa experience. Get to know about the origin and history of the dance, inform people about it. And if they are sport enough, maybe you could give them a beginners’ lesson too.

    Salsa Can Make You Happy

    If you are looking for a healthy and fun way to brighten up your days, there is no better thing than salsa. Join a salsa class, and you will be surrounded by happy people, who love to smile and make you smile too!

    Salsa Music Is Uplifting

    The music is upbeat and cheerful. It will lift your mood, and make you want to sway to it. Well we’re not claiming that all of the music out there is great; there’s obviously some we can’t bother to listen twice. But the good ones will always make you feel better!

    Move for Coordination

    For people who feel they have terrible limb coordination, salsa is the perfect solution! A few weeks of grooving to the salsa tunes, and you will notice a sense of grace in your movements.

    “To get a step up in the world, you could use a ladder, or you could use your connections. I prefer the latter.” – Jarod Kintz

    How To Prepare

    • What is your goal? You need to build a network for you; your goal should be to meet as many people as you can. Keep a target of returning with at least three valuable connections that may help you later in your career. Stay focused.
    • Dress properly. Networking events are usually formal. You need to make sure you are professionally dressed to make a solid impression on everyone you meet. Dress comfortable and look confident.
    • Keep your business cards. How do you make people remember you? You make a killer impression, and then hand them your business card. Keep plenty of them; it is a shame to run out of business card in the midst of an event. Make sure you keep them handy. 

    At The Event

    • Make proper introductions. Maintain eye-contact; and always smile while you shake hands with someone you meet at the event. Introduce yourself using both, your first and last name. Listen to the person’s name carefully, and use it during conversation too.
    • Listen, and then speak. Let your counterpart begin; listen to what they have to say. This will help you relax, and make them more interested in what you have to say once they have had their chance to speak.
    • Seem interested. Ask questions about work and professional life; like, what motivates them; how did they choose the industry they work in; what career choices they had to make to reach where they are today. These questions will make you look genuinely interested in the person rather than the opportunities he has to offer.
    • Keep it to the point. Keep your work particulars precise; you do not want to bore your company. Refrain from using industry specific jargon. You can’t build connections unless the other person understands what you’re saying. 
    • Always jot down the important details. It is impossible to remember everything you talk about with different people. Once in a while, find a nice corner and take the time to note down the noteworthy particulars of each meeting for later reference. Talk about mutual topics that you both can relate to.

    What to Do After the Event

    • It is important to follow up. To keep your networking strong, send out personalized emails to each of your new contacts. Express gratitude for the meeting and mention something you discussed with them at the event.

    That’s it for the fundamentals of capitalizing on your New York networking events. If you do not know where to build your network, join us and other professionals like yourself on fun and networking events organized by us. For more information, contact us TODAY

    Why trash a gem? Enjoy a vintage bottle (ours or yours) for up to 200 hours or more. Makes a great gift or conversation piece. Have a special bottle you enjoyed with someone and don't want to let the night go? Send your bottle to us and we'll turn it in your own handcrafted candle, made with scented soy blended wax! But first take a look through our catalog. You may not be able to afford to drink that $2,000 bottle you've heard about, but now you can say you did.

    After seeing an amazing piece on the news, I had to share this incredible non-profit organization. They send our military overseas necessities and comforts from home. They focus on military without family or support from home. Give them the support they need and to be a lifeline from America.
