Dance Instruction On Television!



Consider cranking up your TiVo, setting the VCR, or just ordering Domino's and tuning in: U.S. Professional Latin Dance Champions Tony Meredith and Melanie Lapatin will be on KCET (channel 6 on Adelphia cable) this Thursday, August 11th (with a repeat on August 20th, at 5 PM). This Thursday's show starts at 8 PM, and is an hour and a half long. They will teach steps, dips, etc. in various ballroom dances. Too bad for Evander Holyfield this program didn't play earlier...
