Occasionally I watch "So You Think You Can Dance," and am always flabbergasted by those dancers who can shake and swivel their hips at lightning speeds to Latin music. We're all a little obsessed by what we cannot do ourselves, and for me, dance is only trumped by singing. (So yes, "Idol" in on my list too.) While I will never be singled out for my dance repertoire, I will be damned if I give up trying. Were I not still breaking in a new ACL, I would probably find a distant niece or 4th cousin attending the University of Connecticut, and make plans to visit on Saturday, April 10. And oh yes, what a coincidence that the Jorgensen Center's Latin Dance Fest 2010 is that same night.

In a cozy nightclub setting with candlelit tables and open dance floor, Latin master Tony Vega and DJ Andy Andy will move all hips in the crowd to the irresistible beat of salsa, bachata, balada, and reggeaton. This is no college party, my dear; semi-formal attire is required and latino dinner and desserts, and cash bar will be available as well. For information and tickets, look online of call 860-486-4226. Tickets cost $10-30.
