Merengue is a fun, easy, and versatile dance that comes from the Dominican Republic. This dance is a gateway to learning other forms of Latin dancing. It's easy 1 - 2, 1 - 2 stepping allows the student to concentrate mainly on leading / following different turns, pretzels, and combinations that can later be translated into Salsa, Cumbia, and Bachata.
