Shake Your Booty 

Because the Rhythm Will Get You

Whether you have two left feet and need a lesson or you're a regular Fred Astaire in search of something more than the usual Friday night bump-and-grind, these are your destinations:

Boise Cafe, 219 N. 10th St., 208-343-3397

Latin dance is the name of the game at Boise Cafe, with tango, salsa, merengue, bachata and cumbia. Free lessons every Friday and Saturday followed by an open floor until 2 a.m.

Boise Contra Dance Society, 893 E. Boise Ave., Info at

Contra dancing is similar to square dancing, but if you're new to it, Boise Contra Dance Society holds a new dancer orientation the third Saturday of every month followed by a proper hoedown.

Heirloom Dance Studio, 765 W. Idaho St., 208-871-6352,

The downtown studio teaches everything from Electrolock to Swing to Salsa. Classes start at around $5 but private classes are available for more personal instruction. Heirloom hosts open dancing sessions almost every night of the week, with swing, salsa and tango. See Page 66 for more information.
