Nowadays latin dance nights and classes are very popular . Many gyms include latin dances such as zumba and salsa. It is also hard to miss programs like Dancing with the Stars (I watch Italian version every week and I adore it).
I attended latin dance classes a few years ago and I learned salsa, bachata and tango. It was so much fun. My neighbor attends tango classes for years and she says tango boosts her mood and health. When her course suspended because of Covid- 19, she was really sad.
