Dancing On Our Own: Why White America Ditched Couple Dancing

Dancing On Our Own: Why White America Ditched Couple Dancing | Music, Theatre, and Dance | Scoop.it
It’s half past midnight on a Thursday morning and I’m on a double date, walking down Calle Bolívar in the fringes of Mexico City’s Downtown district. Passing gated-up storefronts and overlit hotel lobbies, we stop in front of a sign that reads Dos Naciones: Museo de Tragos y Arrabal, which Google tells me translates to something like Two Nations: Museum of Drinks and Suburbs, though I know that’s probably incorrect.
