Are you an avid Strictly fan? Addicted to sequins, lycra and spray tans?! Well if you’ve been inspired by the likes of Fern Britton or Denise Van Outen and want to learn to shimmy, shake and twirl your way around the dance floor, why not take a holiday to the home of samba, the birthplace of tango or the sizzling capital of salsa and visit Rio, Buenos Aires or Havana? Here’s why…  [caption id="attachment_1827" align="aligncenter" width="580" caption="Rio Carnival"]Rio Carnival[/caption] Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - known worldwide as the home of Samba. Made famous by the raucous Carnival, which hits Rio’s streets every year the Friday to Tuesday preceding Ash Wednesday, you can hear the pulsating beats and watch the energetic dancing and colourful displays. It’s truly a magnificent site to see!  And Rio also has hundreds of Samba schools. Just head to the cobbled streets in Lapa and visit one of the many clubs. Most will have a stage for the musicians with a large dance floor in front of it where you can learn from the locals. Alternatively there are lots of places that offer tuition.  [caption id="attachment_1828" align="aligncenter" width="580" caption="Tango"]Tango[/caption] Buenos Aires, Argentina – you cannot visit Buenos Aires without seeing people tango. Performers dance on the streets, locals and tourists alike go to see shows and for those in the know, there are loads of underground tango clubs or ‘milongas’ where bohemian locals take to the floor. These often have unmarked doors or entrances and can look like a derelict building. But that’s the beauty of them! And the tango you’ll witness is like nothing you’ve seen on stage or TV. It’s uber-cool, sleek and sophisticated. Learn a few basic moves with some private lessons and ask your instructor to recommend a few places. [caption id="attachment_1829" align="aligncenter" width="580" caption="Salsa"]Salsa[/caption] Havana, Cuba – when the sun sets, Cuba comes alive with some kicking Caribbean nightlife. Savour the smell of cigars, wet your lips with some rum and swing your hips in Havana, which has one of the largest selections of salsa venues and clubs. Salsa is cheeky, fun, flirtatious and energetic, so prepare to sweat! There are loads of clubs to dance the night away, many with world-class Cuban bands.
