Shall We Dance?
Tele reality shows have unleashed some kind of a dance fever in the city
Neha Walia

westruck by Madhuri’s latkas and jhatkas? Now it’s your turn to put on the dancing shoes. Having caught people’s fancy, it’s the new dance forms like jive, cha-cha and waltz that are taking city folks beyond the realm of party dancing.
People are swinging to the tunes of cha cha cha, doing Jazz ballets, gyrating to the beats of salsa, roomba and samba, grooving on hip hop and Bollywood thumkas. The dance fever is on the rise and we are all ready to boogie.
