Очень любопытная книжка для тех, кто изучает латиноамериканские танцы.
Сама только начала ее читать, но стиль изложения и скрупулезность автора мне уже нравиться. :)

Выдержка из предисловия к книге:
"Когда я начал изучать латино-американские танцы в мае 2000 года (и танец в целом), я был весьма удивлен тому факту, что большинство из того чему меня учили, может быть очень хорошо описанно с использованием довольно определенных понятий. Это щекотало мой интеллект и дало стимул, чтобы задокументировать все то, что я узнал..."
