Shall We Dance? Merengue and Bachata Dancing Class

Shall We Dance? Merengue and Bachata Dancing Class


Please come on Sunday, December 3 at 4 p.m. to the dancing event where you will be able to learn Merengue-dancing skills and Bachata dance moves with our American instructor Manny Ongsing. Bachata is a sultry, heart-pulsing dance step that originated in the Dominican Republic and associated with Bachata music. Bachata is a style of social dance, which is now danced all over the world. The dance consists of three steps with a hip motion, as well as a Cuban hip movement, and a tap on the fourth beat. With a fairly rich yet recent history, Bachata does vary significantly from style to style and area to area, so don’t miss it. In addition, we will introduce you to Merengue dance. Merengue is a simple, fun dance with origins in the Dominican Republic. The simple march tempo is easy to hear and feel, and lends itself to a spontaneous, improvisational style of dance. You do not necessarily need to bring a partner, as we will rotate partners throughout the class. This is an easy dance to learn and it is a lot of fun.

Note: please, bring a bottle of water for yourself!
