Latin dance tonight, with Phyllis Dodson

Phyllis Dodson continues her Latin dance classes tonight, May 28, at the Pagosa Lakes Clubhouse. Classes are from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and cost $5 per person.

Drop-ins are welcome. Latin dance is sponsored by Elation Center for the Arts.

Last week’s class reviewed the cha cha, meringue, ranchera, waltz, cumbia and introduced the mambo.

Phyllis’ relaxed teaching style focuses on the “personality” of Latin dances historically popular in rural communities. Her clear and simple styling tips are invaluable for achieving an authentic feel for Latin dance.

Beginners are welcome, and this also makes a great practice session for experienced dancers.

Become more confident dancing to the syncopated or “happy” rhythms that are a feature of all Latin dancing or “Danzon.” No partner is needed.

Call Elation Center for the Arts at 731-3117 for more information.

The Pagosa Lakes Clubhouse is located at 230 Port Ave. in the Vista subdivision of Pagosa Lakes. Take U.S. 160 to Vista Boulevard; turn north on Vista, then left on Port. The clubhouse is at the end of Port in the PLPOA complex.
