From the snow-capped heads at Miami Beach to the sun-tanned backs at the Catskills,
people are dancing and the cha cha is king. Young and old alike are sidling onto the
dance floor at the first twitch of a timbale.
At a local resort, legend has it, a waiter dropped a tray
of dishes and 23 couples were
mambo, merengue and cha cha cha. A draidel by any other name dances just as
good. Even a white-haired bubba with twinkling eyes will take a twirl at a familiar
freilach dressed up in a Latin beat. And in this day and age, even a kazatski becomes
a mambo in the right hands ... or feet. So, whether it's the exotic new RAISINS AND
ALMONDS or MERENGUE MANIA (Roumania, Roumania), there's something here for
everyone who likes to count one and two and three together... with a wriggle. So
when the leader yells, "Zetz!"let's see you with it!
