Dancers needed.

I don't know if any one remembers me. I am Dj T Limon. I used to DJ at Casablanca on Wednesday nights. I am going to start a new night at Touchdowns, 6366 E Broadway Blvd. Behind El Charro. It will start May 7th. I will be playing a mix of latin and old school until I figure out what kind of latin music everyone wants. The more salseros, the more salsa, merengue & bachata. The more tejanos, the more cumbias & rancheras and so on and so on. The dance floor isn't to big but if we start having a good nights, that may change.

History of Danzón

Danzon comes from the words Danza and Son, two other dance styles) Danzon is a dance that is tipically seen to be derived from the African Antigua regions, and originated during the XVII century and derives from 'son cubano'. Son Cubano was originally danced by the Africans of Cabo Verde in their parties and bembés. In time, it gained much popularity in the rest of the Antigua region through the many danzoneras (dance parties dedicated to danzon). During the XIX century it was also incorporated into symphonic works of various composers.
