Dancing Feat: One Man’s Mission to Dance Like a Colombian

Dancing Feat

Dancing Feat is a true story about a how modest Englishman (points to self) attempts to deal with his appalling lack of dance ability by dancing his way round Colombia. He does also take the occasional bus: this isn’t one of those ‘pogo-ing through the Himalayas’-type setups.

Follow my progress as I explore this great South American country learning not only how to dance, but how to operate outside my comfort zone. From the Pacific to the Caribbean; from the plains to the mountains… the sheer variety of ways I can humiliate myself are seemingly endless.

  • Join me on a journey through Colombian dance: from popular urban types found in every nightclub, to folkloric dances steeped in historical significance.
  • Learn about the truth and legend of this famously troubled country.
  • Get an insight into a people who are amongst the kindest and warmest anywhere on the planet, unless you’re trying to get away with not dancing.

Some six months after I began, my journey reaches its conclusion, and I’m honour-bound to perform a grand finale of the dances I’ve supposedly learnt.

But can such a bad dancer really make the necessary transformation? Is it even possible to remember so many dances? And is there a window backstage big enough for an adult male to fit through?
