About Romance is a Dance

about meRomance is a Dance is a book that shows how the social connection that lovers experience is the mirror image of the physical connection that partnered dancers experience.

Artistically, the book is written in a mirrored format. Each topic in the book has both a Romance (left page) and Dance (right page) component.

The text on each page is mirrored word by word, with only the key words changing. As a 'Mirrored Book', it is perhaps the first of its kind.

An example: Lovers romance for the pleasure of watching their personalities unite and respond to the opportunities of life.

Dancers dance for the pleasure of watching their styles unite and respond to the elements of music.

about meSalsa is an unashamedly flirtatious dance. Sexy styled movements with tricky combinations, make this social dance hot and flashy, and its fast music serves to double the temperature! Kindled from the Mambo (which swept America in the 1950s), Salsa has had a fiery history, with controversy surrounding it's name and the musicality of its different dance styles.

Five major styles represent Salsa dancing worldwide:
LA style/On 1
New York Style/On 2
Puerto Rican Style/Power 2
Cuban Style/Casino
Columbian/Cali Style
