¡A bailar! The Queens Theatre is about to launch a six-session Latin dance instruction series for just about every taste. The fun begins on February 27th with a free, informal introductory event during which teachers from the Farrington Ballroom Dance School will provide information on the different rhythms and steps. The first actual class will be on Cha-Cha-Cha, which has Cuban origins, on March 6th. The schedule then continues as follows: Tango (Argentina/Uruguay), March 13th; Samba (Brazil), March 20th; Salsa (Cuba, Colombia, Panama, Puerto Rico, et al), March 27th; and Merengue (Dominican Republic), April 3rd. Then at a future date, those who participate in at least three classes will perform in a showcase.
