William ”BB” Flanders on Salsa, Bachata, and the Reno Latin Dance Fest
Dancing is one of those activities that is good for our mental and physical health, as well as a social activity that requires communication and cooperation. Some of the most popular dance events in Reno are for latin styles like salsa and bachata.
On this week's episode of Renoites, we welcome William "BB" Flanders, one of the driving forces behind Reno's latin dance scene for the last 15+ years, including the Reno Latin Dance Fest, a 4-day festival celebrating it's 16th year from January 4-7 at the Silver Legacy.
BB and Conor talked about the history of latin dance events in the Reno area, the nonverbal communication involved in leading or following in social dances, the rise and fall of various dance trends, the impact of dance contest TV shows, ways for absolute beginners to get started, and much more!
