Our class is learning the cha-cha–and also learning how hard it can be to do the steps accurately AND up to tempo. (If they’re anything like me, it’s usually one or the other…) Last night I downloaded my favorite slow/practice cha-cha song. Click and enjoy!
In other news, it became known in class last night that I have never seen Saturday Night Fever. How egregious is this omission for someone who will watch practically any movie with dancing in it*? I’ve also never seen Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights (whence “Represent Cuba”), but that seems less embarrassing somehow. I have seen Take the Lead, Mad Hot Ballroom, Shall We Dance (both versions), Scent of a Woman, Strictly Ballroom, and numerous ballet movies, good, bad, and indifferent.
Dance-movie suggestions and cult-favorite song choices welcomed in comments.
*Exception: Black Swan, which I am still debating about.
