I don't know about Colombia (that is where you are right?) but in Peru most guys (and the women too) aren't, they just know enough to get by and have fun. Taking dance classes is great, but it is not required IMHO unless you are really terrible at learning basic dance moves. Anyway, that's just my opinion based on my own experiences in Peru. :)

These guys here have flawless moves. Sometimes some chumps show up to my class and it's obvious they don't need the damn lessons, it's just to get the better women of course, it really pisses me off. It's amazing how FAST you lose value when your moves are not coordinated or you don't lead properly.
Yeah from what i undestand mexico and peru are not known for outstanding dancing. I don't think basic steps will cover you in Cali or Manizales, especially when it comes to that freaking Bachata :wink:
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

I passed by Queretaro when I was taking the bus from Mexico City to Morelia, Michoacan. I would say that Queretaro feels most like Guanajuato state, as it's got that conservative Bajio culture feel, as well as the Spanish colonial architecture and beautiful Roman-style aqueducts.

White Mexicans are also common in that part of Mexico, so if you don't look like a stereotypical obnoxious red-faced gringo with shorts and sunburned skin, they'll think you're local.

I've had quite a different experience from you though, since I tend to hang out with the mestizo and indigenous folks, tend to be more outgoing (usually I carry a musical instrument around too), speak fluent instead of broken Spanish, and am a "chino" since I'm Taiwanese American like Winston. In any case it seems like we both enjoy central Mexico a lot. The local folks are very authentic, and are still in touch with me even to this day. :D

As for dancing, dancing norteno is very easy. It's basically polka music. Grab the girl's arm and move around like a penguin. Watch some YouTube videos ("baile norteno') and you'll see how easy it is. It's more about having fun with the girl, and isn't rocket science like salsa dancing.

Girls are easy to get to know, especially if you do some sort of a family homestay. If you get to know Mexicans in the US really well, often they'll invite you to their families' homes in their native villages. The experience will be incredible.

I believe most people from the Queretaro area work in California, Texas, Illinois, and perhaps also New York. Some people from your area in the States should also be from there.

what do you guys consider "too mestiza" looking? To me this girl has the perfect combination of native and spanish mixture, but she may look mayan to some of you.

I think I'm the only person on this board who has this "too mestiza" mindset. She is darker skinned. The second photo makes her look lighter but you can clearly see a light source being directed directly at her (in her eyes), which lightens her skin tone up considerably.

Just because someone is "mestiza" doesn't mean they're ugly. It's a different type of pretty. You should go for what you want. As a downside Castizo girls also tend to be less busty. Many women in Argentina get breast enhancement for this reason. So there is a trade off. What you care about most? Do you want skin color, facial shape, hour glass body? I seem to be gravitate to women who have european facial features and light skin, even if they're not very bust or shapely.
