From our good friend Saulo Cepeda (check out his B-Day video):
Hello to all avid and aspiring Salseros in the area (i.e. as far and wide an area as this e-mail reaches).  Some of you already know that I am aiming to start a set of 6 week Salsa series at Step-n-Out Studio in Covington, KY.  The classes focus strickly on Social Salsa (as opposed to performance) techniques.  I start teaching on Friday, Jan 22.  Below are some details on the classes I intend to offer.  General prices are below the descriptions:
1) "Zero to Hero" Social Salsa Series (Part 1): Friday’s (7 – 8 pm)
This is a six week group class specially designed for either absolute beginners as well as those of you who had some recent instruction but little experience (6 weeks - 12 months) in Salsa. 
You know... the Salsa bug bit you hard and fast, you got the basics down pat, and you are starting to master the rhythm. You are totally addicted but... you are dying to get sharp and look good on the dance floor fast!  You want to take the fist strong steps be a smooth lead or a sharp follower.
The class starts from the very basics and covers all fundamental techniques that you should know in order to truly stand out on the dance floor.  Leaders will not only learn to lead smoothly, clearly and on time.  They will also learn the key to creating and improvise multiple patterns (yes, even at the beginner level).  Followers will learn proper timing, footwork, preparation and execution techniques to recognize and follow the most common styles of salsa.  Basic Styling techniques will be introduced as well so both male and female can learn to make their movement more gracious and visually attractive on the dance floor without interfering with partner-work!
Part 2 of this series is scheduled to begin in Mar and will pick up where part 1 leaves in order to develop you into a fully proficient salsa dancer up to an intermediate level.
2)  Advanced Fundamentals for Beginner/Intermediate Salsa Dancers: Fridays (8 – 9 pm)
This is tailored for dancers who feel clearly at home with the basics footwork, combinations and the rhythm of salsa and are now capable of learning/executing increasingly complex salsa patterns comfortably.  After hard and fast review of the fundamentals on the first two weeks, the class will introduced new patterns every week with the purpose to introduced/work/master specific skills!

If you have taken lessons and/or have been dancing for more than a year but are somehow frustrated with your progress this class is for you.  If you are wondering what the secret is to create, lead/follow complex (or improvised) patterns at higher levels with ease you will be in the right place.  If you want to be the follower every Lead seeks to dance with first, you really need to be here! 

Group ClassIndividual PriceCash DiscountCouples Cash Discount
Walk ins $15nono
6 Class Series$65$60$110
New Student Special (Limited to first 12 students to sign in)
Two 30 minutes private lessons + 6 group lesson series  

That's is all for now. You may contact me at CSAULO@YAHOO.COM for additional questions or details.  Please forward this e-mail to anyone you think might be interested. Looking forward to hear from you soon. I will stay in contact,

Yours truly,

Saulo Cepeda
P.S. Below is a separate project for your early consideration.  Enjoy!

It happened to all of us - we dance in a crowded club, and accidentally step on somebody. The polite dancers apologize and move on. However, if the same guy runs into you 5-6 times during one song, something is wrong. Obviously, they need some extra education :)

So we've asked couple of expert teachers to show the cross-body lead the way it should be done in a crowded club. 

Please respect other dancers' space and stay SAFE on the dance floor!!!

Information from Ohio Commission on Hispanic/Latino Affairs:

Policy Alert:  BMV Injunction DENIED

As you may know, the League of United Latin American requested an injunction in the Franklin County Municipal Court to prevent the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) from executing a December 8, 2009 cancellation of thousands of motor vehicle registrations that were registered using a third-party transaction.  LULAC sought to prohibit the BMV from requiring those who used a third party transaction (such as power of attorney) to provide a valid Ohio driver's license, identification card or Social Security number. Magistrate Pamela Browning issued a ruling today DENYING the injunction.

We have not yet received the grounds for the ruling, but will make this available as soon as possible.

Effective 12:00 a.m. midnight tonight, those who have not re-registered their vehicles in compliance with the new BMV policy will be in violation of the law and subject to stops by law enforcement officials. Failure to register a vehicle is a violation of the law and is a fourth degree misdemeanor, which is subject to penalties of a maximum of 30 days in jail and $250 in fines (ORC § 4503.11).  Furthermore, failure to display registration on the vehicle is a minor misdemeanor, subject to a penalty of a maximum of $150. (ORC § 4503.21).

Alerta Especial: Requerimiento Preliminar Legal  ante el BMV (Dirección Vehicular) ha sido DENEGADA

Como recordarán, LULAC – [League of United Latin American Citizens] solicitó un requerimiento preliminar legal ante el Tribunal Municipal del Condado de Franklin para prevenir que la Dirección Vehicular (BMV)  autorizara a partir del 8 de diciembre la cancelación de miles de registros vehiculares que fueron registrados por medio de transacciones que usaban a terceros.  LULAC tenía como meta que se le prohibiera al BMV exigir a aquellos que usaron a terceros (como por ejemplo a través de carta poder)  la presentación de una licencia de conducir válida para Ohio, tarjeta de identificación o número de seguro social.  La Magistrada Pamela Browning dictó su veredicto hoy día DENEGANDO el requerimiento legal.

Al momento, no hemos recibido las bases del fallo, apenas la información esté disponible, la pondremos a su disposición.

Efectivo a la media noche 12:00 a.m. de hoy día, aquellos que no han vuelto a registrar sus vehículos de acuerdo a la nueva ley del BMV estarán en violación de la ley y serán sujetos a paradas por la policía.  El incumplimiento del registro de vehículo es una violación de ley y es un delito menor del cuarto grado, el cual está sujeto a castigos de un máximo de 30 días en prisión y $250 en multas (ORC § 4503.11).  Aún más, el no desplegar la placa en el vehículo es un delito menor sujeto a una multa de un máximo de $150. (ORC § 4503.21).

Governor Ted Strickland announced on Oct. 30, 2009, the appointment of Keila Cosme to the 6th District Court of Appeals. Cosme will be the first Hispanic American to serve on any of Ohio’s 12 District Courts of Appeals.

Keila Cosme, 40, of Toledo, fills the seat vacated by the death of Judge William Skow.

“Keila is an accomplished attorney who has exemplified competence and professionalism throughout her career,” Strickland said. “Her unique life experiences and determination to overcome barriers will add a distinct voice to the Court of Appeals.”

Cosme will take the bench on November 16. To retain the seat, she must run in the November 2010 general election.

Cosme has served as a partner with the law firm of Cosme, D’Angelo, and Szollosi since 2001. She previously served as an attorney for the Law Offices of Keila D. Cosme from 1998-2001 and for the firm of Calfee, Halter and Griswold from 1995-1998. While Cosme’s practice has focused primarily on commercial and civil litigation, Cosme has also counseled and represented private and pro bono clients on a wide range of legal matters that fall within the jurisdiction of the appeals court, including criminal, domestic relations and juvenile law.

Cosme came to the United States from Puerto Rico at the age of 17 to attend Boston University. While pursuing a double major, Cosme’s English language skills were so underdeveloped that she had to audio-record class lectures and translate them into Spanish to fully understand the subject matter. She managed to overcome these obstacles and became proficient in the English language through use of a Spanish/English dictionary and translation of her undergraduate course material.

Cosme serves as a member of the Ohio Association for Justice and the Hispanic National Bar Association and the Ohio Hispanic Bar Association. She also serves as a member of the AFL-CIO Lawyers Coordinating Committee.

“I’m honored by this appointment, and I am committed to serving the Court of Appeals with integrity and fairness,” Cosme said.

Cosme received a bachelor’s degree from Boston University in 1990 and a law degree from the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in 1994.
