I have yet to meet a Latina that doesn't consider listening to music a form of therapy. Most of the time, it includes some form of dancing, even if that means moving our feet while our butt is glued to a chair. Or discreetly tapping our fingers when nobody else is moving. That happens to me every time I hear certain tunes. I can't help it. It doesn't matter if I'm happy, worried, or even very sad. There are songs that can send every bad feeling away and make me feel like dancing, even if it's only while they last.
