The secret to dancing (apart from it being all in the hips) is to do it like no-one is watching, or at the very least like you don’t care that lots of people are watching. If you’ve always wanted to learn a few basic moves, or perhaps perfect that tricky ‘triple-twist and dip’ manoeuvre, we know a few nimble-footed folk you should probably meet. Try some professional tango classes in the backstreet clubs of Buenos Aires, samba-ing the night away at Rio Carnival, watching the Russian Ballet perform a classic in St Petersburg or Chinese acrobats defy physics in Shanghai. It’s easy to start: just let the rhythm take you, pick a trip you like, and let it all go.
