Tex-Mex conjunto music, like Cajun, has a joyous accordion-driven sound that spices up the common waltz and polka. The members of La Fuerza are masters of this traditional dance style, but they don’t live in Texas or Mexico. This Homestead, Fla.-based unit specializes in bringing its vibrant, mellifluous culture to those who live outside the Southwestern region where conjunto first bloomed. Dance workshop at 8 p.m., music at 9 p.m. at Glen Echo Park’s Spanish Ballroom, 7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo. $10. (301) 309-0895. (Steve Kiviat)
