How I Cheated On Salsa with Bachata

I was in a nine year relationship with Salsa before I left her for Bachata. Don't worry, Salsa and I are still good friends, but this isn't about Salsa, this is about my love affair with Bachata.

Parrish is on vacation on the 4th Tuesday of this month. As a substitute, we are going to offer a Bachata class in partnering and connectivity!
