Terence. I know very little about the Mambo or the Salsa. Looking at the Mambo on Learn the Dances. It seems to be the same that I see danced as a Salsa. Also I see World Salsa Championships. But I don`t see World Mambo Championships. Is it being outmoded and replaced.
Terence. The IDTA embraces Salsa. The Salsa championships that have been shown on Cable would have taken a lot of organising. I don`t see how you can say they have no parent body. Personely I`m not intersted in either. But it is interesting to know all the facts.
Well, I have just returned from vacationing in Puerto Rico. Went dancing at a very upscale night club and to my surprise everyone there was dancing merengue to Cha Cha steps! It actually is a lot of fun to do so, because you can hardly get a DJ to play Cha Cha Cha at night clubs anymore! Even though these dances are as different as "Chalk and Cheese", it can be done. Try it!
I would have to agree with you Indy Spinner. Hustle is an awesome dance. Us NORMAL and non-ignorant women thoroughly enjoy the hustle. I appreciate you taking a stand because this "jj" is really just trying to make a fool out of all of us real dancers. Telling others not to go to Arthur Murray, not to hustle, and who knows what else. Thanks!
News flash, JJ, to many of us "serious dancers" you are coming off as a complete snob...an ignorant one. Don't be ridiculous, and don't accuse Terence of "butting heads" with you when you. You are what is known as a "baiter".
