In moving and shaking

Get ready to put your dancing shoes on. And we don't mean just a pair of tap shoes--you're expected to be in full out salsa gear for the Montas Third Anniversary Party and World Class Mambo Workshop.

On Friday, May 2 the festivities will kick into gear at the Montas International Lounge and will feature Bio Ritmo (pictured left), a salsa band that is about as hot as a jalapeno. While Bio Ritmo sets the scene, guests can enjoy mambo performances by Ismael Otero and Grisselle Ponce of the Caribbean Soul Dancers, and James Cobo and Diana Nunez of the CoboBrothers.

If Friday night doesn't satisfy your craving for salsa and mambo, come out for the mambo workshop on Saturday, May 3 at 1 p.m. and learn how to shake your hips with Otero and Ponce. Reserve your place and check workshop prices at For details and information call 361-2390. Non-Montas members pay $35 for the party complete with hors d'oeuvres, champagne and CD gifts. And remember, this event is dress to impress! The Montas International Lounge is located at 2223 E. Hwy 54 in Durham. Also check out
