It's in the Can 

Wednesday, Mar 26 2008
Last year, Danilo Macarrao and Marina Junqueira shook it so hard they won. Before you think "Pfft, I could do that," admit to yourself that in a hard-shakin' town such as ours, you have to shake it really hard to win the title at the Carnaval King and Queen Competition. For most of us, it's about appreciating the moves, not making them, but for eight talented dancers, the competition is a chance to shimmy and shimmer in six all-important categories (including audience reaction, which is where you come in). Performing in Folkloric, Brazilian, Caribbean, or Contemporary/Fusion styles, the dancers compete for five hundred bucks and the honor of sitting on the royal float come crazy-time, aka Carnaval, in May.
