Name the Dominican dance that is very popular, fun to do, easy to learn, sexy, and could be danced almost anywhere, regardless of how crowded it is.
Merengue! (Were you thinking of Bachata?)
Well, long before the Bachata, Salsa, Mambo, Cha-Cha, and other popular line dances; there was the Merengue. This dance goes back to the early to mid-1800s and is one of the most primitive of Latin dances!
Dancing in a Puerto Rican Kitchen
Growing up in a Puerto Rican household it was the first dance I learned. Many a young Hispanic have learned this dance in the kitchen or living room during a house party. I certainly did.
Even dogs dance Merengue!!
For me, this is been one of the best get acquainted dances when dancing with someone new. I learn about how they respond to following the music, Hip action, and helps me to know how to dance with them in other dances.
Merengue teaches you how to have great timing, leading and following turns, connection and of course Cuban motion. If this dance isn't on your dance program ask your teacher about it and try it out, you might get hooked. From there, it's up to you.
Take it to the club... or to your kitchen.
