Beginning Salsa, Merengue and Bachata

Salsa is a fast, sexy and fun dance.  It is also extremely popular.  You can find a club to Salsa dance most every night of the week.  It has origins in Cuba and Puerto Rico, but has many influences from around the world including New York’s 1970’s disco scene.  Merengue is the National dance of the Dominican Republic.  It is an easy dance with very brisk, quick steps 
and hip action.  There are several theories as to the origins of the dance, one of which is that the Dominican people honoring a wounded war hero danced with a limp. Bachata also has its origins in the Dominican Republic. It is danced widely all over the world but with many varying styles. The music is romantic with prominent acoustic guitar. In this class we will work on the basics and add fun patterns to all three dances, with the focus on Salsa.
