A popular club dance, Merengue is one of the easiest Latin dances to learn. It has a strong beat and a steady rhythm. Merengue music generally has four beats-to-the-bar, and you move on every beat. We teach the ballroom version which uses regular four and eight-count step patterns.
The Merengue movement consists of a casual walking/marching step and simple step patterns.
Merengue is both the official national dance and music of the Dominican Republic.
