Dancing with Desire

(p.169) 6 Dancing with Desire
Nor-tec Rifa!

Alejandro L. Madrid

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on individual dance styles and the relationships between discourses about Latinidad and Latino bodies that inform dancing fans moving to the beat of Nor-tec. It attempts to show how different Nor-tec dance styles allow different communities to reconcile outside discourses of representation with their own notions of self-identity and their own cosmopolitan aspirations with the commodified desires that hegemonic libidinal economies impose on them.

Keywords:   dance styles, Latinidad bodies, Latino bodies, Nor-tec, commodified desires, libidinal economies
