Merengue develops Cuban Motion and the ability to adapt to any partner and is sure to get you feeling the motion right away on the dance floor. The beats get your hips moving in no time to any Latin rhythm.
Learning to Dance Merengue
It is the only Latin dance which combines one-step timing with Cuban Motion and therefore is a help to all Latin dances. Learning this dance to the march type beat sharpens timing and coordination and the proper use of the accent will develop a clearer interpretation of musical rhythm.
History of Merengue
There are two schools of thought as to how this captivating dance began. One says it started as a peasant dance in the Dominican Republic by African Slaves. Another says a returning war hero, a General Maringie, danced dragging an injured leg. Whatever it's origin, it inspires dancers all over the world.
