I've been dancing all my life. I' from Peru, so that's part of my cultural background. However, I have not taken any lessons and don't know about formal partner dancing.
It depends.. I suck at Country music :-( I do pretty well with Salsa and other Latin dances, and I love dancing to classic rock and Disco.
Latin (Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Boleros, Regeton, Latin Waltz, Afro-Latin, Marinera, Wayno, etc.), Classic Rock, Disco. But I'd love to learn more styles. I tried Country for the first time recently, and I'm terrible at it! I'd like to explore as many dance styles as possible, but not having a dance partner makes it very difficult (I'm single). I'd love to learn to Tango!
Besides the above?... Dancing is my PASSSION, but I don't get to do it much. I'm Vegan. I'm a really nice man who just moved to Dallas (May 2014) and doesn't have any friends here yet. I'm an animal lover, I'm a published poet (2 poetry books, working on third), and a professional martial artist (4th Degree Kung-Fu Master instructor and competitor). I love working out and going to the gym regularly (still trying to lose many extra pounds). I love the beach, and miss it so much being so far from it here in the DFW area (I grew up 3 blocks from the beach, literally, so I kind of got used to it). I don't watch TV, but I love going to the movies. I usually have 2 or 3 books that I'm reading simultaneously, mainly about spiritual development (not religious), eastern philosophies, and I love to read about consciousness (its philosophy, psychology, neuro-science, etc.).
