Dance in city is no more a site for dance lover to get information, it has progressed manifolds, it has reached to various parts of the world, and along with information it provides dance lovers with all that they want. I feel privileged to be writing for dance in city, when Mr Nitin approached me to write a column, I could not say no, its one of my favourites sites. I know of millions of dance lovers who swear by dance in city.

I begin my column today with a valentine special, this month is said be filled with love and affection. It’s the same emotion that is a top priority for all performers and dancers, but many a times we force ourselves or our loved ones during this season to dance what we like to dance, but isn’t love about dancing for each other, dancing for one another. So with my dance knowledge and experience of teaching students world over through my classes and workshops, I feel each of us are different and have different liking for a dances. I might like the Salsa but my partner might like the Tango. How do I know what my partner likes? Sun signs play a very important role in that too, each star sign person have certain characteristics and these typical qualities help you to understand yourself and your partners likes towards a dance form. 

Dancing a dance not ment for you and your valentine can lead to a disaster sometimes, so be careful when you choose the dance form this valentine season. Know your valentine’s traits and I tell will you the dance ment for them.  


Aries – Dance – Merengue – This dance comes from Dominican Republic and its neighbouring island Haiti … this quick tempo dance is great for people who are very aggressive, self-confident and full of life…. This dance has bouncy, vigorous and brisk moves…. Which are typical traits of an Arian (being assertive and Energetic).

Taurus – Dance – Viennese Waltz – This dance comes from Austria and South of Germany… While performing this fast dance one has to be very watchful and alert all the time as that others do not bang into you while in the movement of dance. It is a very compassionate, Poised, Royal and very loving dance, its movements are all in fast circular motion.  Viennese Waltz is especially for Taurian as they are known to be very careful and caring people 

Gemini – Dance – Undoubtedly the Cha Cha Cha – this dance is an off- shoot of a famous Latin folk dance called the Mambo…. Cha Cha Cha has very inviting music….

This dance is extremely flashy, flamboyant and extravagant dance… the mood of this Glitzy dance is a ‘Fight’. In this dance the man represents the matador and the women his cape in the drama of the Spanish bullfight…. This hot and flaming dance truly represents the ever so Flamboyant and Fiery Leo

Virgo – Dance – Jive – this dance form comes from The United States of America. Jive is similar to Boogie, Jitterbug, West Coast Swing, Lindy Hop and most of all Rock n Roll. It is a Fun Filled, Carefree, Practical   and a relaxed dance. While performing this dance one needs to me extremely watchful and careful, as it’s a high-speed dance. This crazy dance is best for Virgos as they are known to be very Practical, Cautious yet fun loving people.

Libra – Dance  – Rumba & Bolero – Rumba is the national dance of Cuba and Bolero comes from Bahamas. They both have fascinating rhythms and bodily expressions. Extended long legs and Hem Lines enhance the romantic mood of these dances. Rumba and Bolero are said to be the spirit and soul of all the dance forms. When we think of these ‘Dances of Love’ we think of Passion, Obsession, Infatuation, Togetherness and Lust. And that’s what Libras are said to be, Romantic at heart, always in love with ‘Love’ and extremely charming as individuals.   

Scorpio – Dance – Tango – This dance comes from the back-street bars of Argentina. It is the dance of ‘Mixed feeling’. Tango means many things to many people, just like the Mysterious Scorpio. Its’ sexy and passionate attitude resemble the characteristic of the adoring yet inexplicable and enigmatic Scorpion.

Sagittarius – Dance – Samba – This dance is from Brazil. The feel of Samba is just like a Sagittarian. It’s rhythmic, Animalistic, Exotic and Adventurous. Samba is said to be an ‘out of the ordinary’ dance, as it is very musical, striking, unusual and has loads of bold and daring moves just like a Sagittarius person who is said to be very courageous and gutsy by nature

Capricorn  – Dance – Bossa Nova  – This dance form comes from Bahai. It is meant for the typical Capricorns as they are cool, go-getter individuals who are always determined to do the best, similarly this dance style too is like a live wire, very splendid, impressive and grand, firm danced with an attitude that is fresh, calm and breezy very similar to a Capricorn.

Aquarius – Dance Salsa – This dance style is the most erratic and unpredictable of all the dances yet it is orderly in its form, having a structured movement, only a whimsical and wise Aquarian will understand the method in the madness. This saucy dance is the craze of this decade. Salsa moods can change at any time from being sexy to spicy or loving to gloomy or from being passionate to heartbreaking. 

Pisces – Dance – Quickstep – This is a very imaginative and an artistic dance, danced in a very pensive and wistful mood, just like the Dreamy & very Creative Piscean. Fast tempo yet in complete Harmony, Quickstep with its syncopated hops and swings is filled with loads of creative yet original impressive moves which are the typical traits of a Piscean
