Sat, Jan 9: The Philosophy of Latin Dance
Two things have influenced the Philosophy of Latin Dance: one has to do with its origins in the Egyptian-belly dance 2,000 years before, and the second comes with the nomadic migration of the gypsies from Northern India who moved towards the Spanish peninsula. When this happened, there was a fusion of cultures between these two places and peoples, thus giving birth to the Spanish-Flamenco in the 1500s.
