Talia Castro-Pozo and Lawrence ‘Happy Feet’ Walden salsa dancing on Monday night.
On Mondays, the Taj Lounge offers salsa lessons, followed by dancing late into the night. Classes start at 6:30 p.m. and are hosted by Talia Castro-Pozo. “It’s summer here when it’s winter outside,” she said.
No dance partners required as the Monday night events often draw about 50 students, according to Taj Lounge.
You may not recognize me since the scene suppose to take place in the 80′s, I’m wearing a wig, 80′s dress and it’s a quick shot, but make no mistake, I had a blast dancing Bachata to Superstar Romeo Santos and recreating his childhood in the Bronx, NY!
Going back to Peru is always a memorable experience. This past December for almost 3 weeks, I had the opportunity to visit Cusco again, and the majestic Macchu Picchu, to travel back to Lima to share with friends some of the most beautiful beaches of the south and with the Alegria members from NY, Lima and family share music and dance with the kids of La Sagrada Familia Orphanage. Definitely the highlight of my trip! I loved dancing with these kids, shared laughs, stories and they even got to teach me some line dances
Regresar a Peru es siempre una experiencia inolvidable. Este pasado Diciembre, por casi 3 semanas, tuve la oportunidad de visitar Cusco otra vez, el majestuoso Macchu Picchu, de viajar a Lima y compartir con amigos las hermosas playas del sur, y con los miembros de Alegria de NY, Lima y familia, compartir música y baile con los niños del orfanato de La Sagrada Familia. Definitivamente el momento culminante de mi visita! Me encantó bailar con los niños, reir, intercambiar historias, y aprender los bailes de moda que me enseñaron

Was so much fun to perform at the United Nations Private Yatch Party. The event was the Farewell Party celebrating the Ambassadors and Special Good bye to Susan Rice. Was great to meet the Ambassadors from all over the world, particularly to meet and dance with Susan Rice.
Great fun at Sea with my dance partner Lee Van Bradley
