“Its hard to wait around for something you know might never happen;
but its harder to give up when you know its everything you want."
Meanwhile dance fusion continues on the "street beat" and though slow going there never was a stopping it. For now the best case of fusion is using the Mambo basic as Rumba dance basic. A Rock Step and a slow step, looks and feels natural as hell. And what is more it will not be a fad, it is too basic and was danced maybe two or three hundred years back, maybe not exactly but somewhat. Yes, something like the International.
Left turn, right turn, easy as pie. Cross body lead and Underarm turn just as natural as ever. What is changed is the basic step. Arthur Murray's big mistake. Used in over one hundred Caribbean dances. Beguine, Calypso, Rumba, Salsa, Mambo, Son, Montuno etc. etc.

If adopted by the Fred Astaire group and the Arthur Murray group, dancers will probably be dancing it two or three hundred years in the future too, in sheer joy of moving to the most beautiful Latin music in existence. Then there is some fusion already of the Filipino Tango into the American Tango. It will evolve to be something beautiful and comfortable. You ain't seen nuttin' yet. And Argentine Tango also on the rise. Someone mentioned a Night Club in Kalealoa featuring Argentine Tango and Tango Valse. Watzzat?
