August Dances: First class Tango, second class Salsa!
Dance like Arnold, Al and Jamie Lee
“There are no mistakes in the Tango. Not like life.” (Scent of a Woman)
“A prostitute. A man who falls in love with her. First there is desire. Then passion. Then suspicion. Jealousy, anger betrayal. …. Jealousy will drive you mad!“ (Moulin Rouge)
The Tango is a steamy, sultry dance of lovers. It originated in Argentina in the lower-class districts of Buenos Aires and Montevideo. It is a dance popularized in film:
· Scent of a Woman
· True Lies
· Moulin Rouge
The Tango has many styles and you will not likely hear it played in a nightclub unless you are at a milonga. But it can be fun.
Stick around after the Tango for a lively Salsa lesson and add to your repertoire of moves on the dance floor. Salsa is a handy step to know here in Tampa Bay.
Salsa is a popular form of social dance that originated in New York with strong influences from Latin America, particularly Cuba and Puerto Rico. The movements of salsa have its origins in Cuban Son, Cha cha cha, Mambo and other dance forms, and the dance, along with the salsa music, originated in the mid-1970s in New York. (Wikipedia)
Wear comfortable clothing that you can move freely in. Shoes that have smooth soles that slide some are better than athletic shoes and should stay firmly on your feet. No flip flops.
Beginners as well as people with experience are welcome. We always have a lot of fun. No need for a partner as we switch dance partners every few minutes as we learn the steps and figures.
AND we are usually short on ladies! This is the only dancing I have EVER gone to where there are more men than women on a regular basis.
