Event Details

The LGBT Community Center of The Desert presents Livin' Lovin' Latin Partner Dancing Starting OCTOBER 19th, 2019 | Session runs thru December 2019 | First 4-weeks: drop-in, followed by two 4-week sessions Many of the dances have the same basic patterns, so several dances can be learned simultaneously, progressing from slower dances (Bolero/Rumba), to medium speed (Cha-Cha), to fast (Salsa/Mambo). No experience or partner is needed to get started. After learning the basics, participants practice together and change partners frequently, encouraging better practice with different partners, and great social interactions. Cost:  Center Members: $5 | Non-Members: $10 About the Instructor Geno Russo: Geno's career has spanned over 60 years from being a performer on stage, a ballroom and Latin dance competitor, a choreographer, and in “Learn To Dance” instructional videos. Geno co-founded a non-profit organization called "Connecting Through Dance" from 2000 through 2008. The mission was to bring diverse groups of people together to connect through dance. He has also trained same-sex dancers competing at the Gay Games and performing for the San Francisco Gay Pride Celebration. Geno is known to be a super-clear, funny and very experienced dance instructor.
