Latin American rhythms constitute one topic on which every-one in the world of ballroom is agreed. They are unrivalled for colour, vivacity and cultivating a universal urge to move one’s limbs in tempo.
Sydney Thompson, a leading name in British ballroom dancing music for twenty-one years, has epitomised all the attractive appeal of the cha cha cha, paso doble, samba and rumba in this scintillating LP collection. He has not neglected the music itself in favour of a metronomically strict tempo as others have done on record, but has accommodated both in an adroit fashion which will satisfy dancing teachers, their pupils and Latin American aficionados alike.
