Hi Ladydance Many thanks for your reply, which is very interesting. I'm in Ireland and incredibly, there is virtually no adult latin danced here. I've never been to a social dance where a rhumba was played! which is a great shame. Of course it's a self-perpetuating problem. It's not taught because it's not played, so it's not taught... The main dances here are quickstep, social foxtrot and slow waltz. I was thinking of starting with quickstep and slow waltz, with maybe some cha-cha to help chasse-type movements. Occasionally a cha-cha is played at social dances.
