You and your inamorato seeking
new togetherness?
Try any of these three dance styles
for increased affection! You could start with the waltz,
whose "term applies to any one of the several dances
in which two individuals,
a "leader" and a "follower,"
dance with physical contact
through their upper or lower bodies,
or simply their arms
depending on the particular variety of dance.
Since most social dancing is unchoreographed,
this contact is necessary
for the
leader to communicate
the next dance move to the follower,
and for the follower to respond to this insinuation."
I declare activities with our beloveds
involving physical contact and communication
are desirable!

Move on to Latin dance,
which "typically includes dances originating in
Latin America and the Caribbean islands
such as
cha cha cha, rumba, samba, salsa,
mambo, danza, merengue, tumba, bachata,
cumbia, and the bolero."
(I swear some of these sound
like food items...

salsa, meringue and cucumbers.
Also, the first dancers dress looks like a
frothy mixture of pink material.)
Then conclude by dancing the tango
which is "mostly danced in either open embrace,
where lead and follow have space between their bodies,
or close embrace,
where the lead and follow connect either chest-to-chest
(Argentine tango)
or in the upper thigh, hip area
(American and International tango)"
as these couples competing in the
2008 Shangi Dance Competition.
What are you waiting for?
Grab your dancing shoes and start your heart throbbing,
a way good time!
