cha cha ch?, merengue, mambo and bolero. Live music flourished, musicians were revered. Dancers lived to perform and stayed on the floor for the sheer joy of self expression through musical interpretation. Eileen Torres will conduct a session highlighting the popular Latin social dance forms during this era.  Torres' remarks will be punctuated with video and audio clips, mini demos, and a step-by-step breakdown of each dance pattern. Audience members will be invited to participate in two-minute dance lessons for each style.
