"¡Hola, Señors, Señoras, y Señoritas! ¡Bienvenido!" said the colorfully dressed instructor perched on top of a very tall stool. Welcome, One and All, to El Studio de Salsa, Samba, So Forth and So On."
The snail spoke clearly, boldly, and charmingly for all the larger animals to hear. "Me llamo Stanley, the Salsa King. In six weeks time, you all will be dancing the salsa, samba, rumba, cha cha cha, and merengue at Thomas' and Winnie's wedding reception."
Lemon meringue pie?" Guy perked up, bringing Charlie the Camel out of his reverie to nearly stumble over the alligator. "Dude!"
Edwina the Egret sighed while Agathe the Aardvark rolled her eyes. The other animals giggled and snickered.
"You are all nervous, no?" asked Stanley the Snail.
"Yes!" his students said in unison.
"Good, good. Let us channel that nervousness. I want you all to close your eyes, listen to this Eddie Palmieri song, and simply let your body sway and stomp to the music." The Salsa King looked around the room, making eye contact first with the future bride and groom, then with each of their friends.
"Take a deep breath. Another. And, another. Ready? Let us feel the music!"
