LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Finding Rhythm: An International Dance Journey

An international dance journey reveals how beautiful life can be when you take the lead.

If you could do anything you wanted, what would it be? Aliénor Salmon was working as a happiness researcher in Bangkok when a friend asked her the question that turned life as she knew it on its heels.

The Franco-British Aliénor wanted to learn to dance, and so she set off on a journey to New York City and then Latin America. She danced her way through Mexico, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Brazil, and Argentina and learned eighteen dances in total—everything from salsa to cha-cha, reggaeton to samba, tango, bachata, merengue, and more. As she engaged with esoteric customs and cultures, she discovered that every step, pivot, and shake thrums with an undeniable spirit of place.

This powerful memoir is a resplendent meditation on happiness, connection, courage, and wanderlust, as well as a superb up-close look at the history, steps, and development of the world’s most remarkable dances.
