    I agree with Judy Tooley,
    Being from south Florida for so many years, Gloria Estephan is THE driving force in music down in Miami...well, so is Linda Cox. Between Salsa and Dance/Techno, these two artists have it going on.

    Personally, now with all the dance shows back on the tellie I am in absolute love with ballroom dance again. The tango (especially Argentine), all the latin dances, quick step all make me want to get out the dancin shoes again.

    And when my Lady introduced me to this guy's music we really got going on the dance floor:

    Teddy, I'll just have to take that chance, now won't I?
    And yes, those songs were--and still are--"ass-kickers", regardless of what Colin or anybody else thinks of the artist who performed them.
    I'd add three others as well from the Bee Gees and the soundtrack from Saturday Night Fever: "Night Fever", "Staying Alive" and "Tragedy".

    Now, of course, the "Gig Fugue in G" by JSBach gets many feet going.

    Which Strauss? Richard, Franz-Joseph, or.............

    btw: Strauss means "Ostrich" in Russian

    The great waltzes from the two Strauses is great for dancing.
    I also like to dance to some kinds of Mexican music.

    Nice clip Hawk. It helps prove that music and dance are the same all over the world. I am fascinated by the aborigines dances. I really must try and watch more (hint hint Margaret)

    Hi there. I too love Salsa and Kizomba music, but as a white bloke with two left feet, I can't dance for toffee!

    Love 50's and 60's Cuban stuff- Celia Cruz etc... but also try to get myself a bit modern. Quite like Rihanna, who occasionally nods to latin american rythms. I found this interesting- raunchy lady- see if you like? http://www.muzu.tv/nataliakills/mirr...c-video/939696

    Went to Havana a few years back. Ace. Mojito heaven!!
