Ballroom and Bar Partner Up

Locals dip into Friday night salsa dancing at Browning’s — no partners or cheesy lines necessary.

WHEE went me and my partner as we spun ‘round not once, not twice, but — oh, no I guess it was just twice.

Salsa, Jorge Gutierrez is showing us, happens on a count of 1-2-3, beat, 5-6-7, beat.

Latin Dance takes Little Rock by storm


 
 

It’s 9:30 on a Friday night – Little Rock’s mostly residential Heights area is pretty quiet, with the exception of the activity surrounding Browning’s Mexican Grill, where people are gathering for a weekly Salsa meet-up. Dance enthusiasts spill out onto the sidewalk, as the entire area surrounding the restaurant buzzes with activity. The meet-up is hosted by the Little Rock Salsa group, which also offers Tango lessons as mentioned in last weeks column about the Arkansas Arts Center.

As I entered Browning's Mexican Grill on a Friday night I was so enveloped by the conga-drum driven music that my entire rib cage seemed to be vibrating.

On the floor, 50 or 60 people were dancing to the six-beat rhythms of salsa, spinning and smiling, continually bathed in the ever-changing hues of red, green, yellow and blue twirling lights and bright, blinking strobes.

It was the twice-weekly Little Rock Salsa Team event that had me mesmerized.
