In this Latin Dance Social Sampler, we will be covering the dance styles of Bachata, Salsa and Merengue over 9 weeks. We start with most basic dance and work our way up in skill. Like learning any skill, these dances take time to learn the technique and rhythm. You will be sure to acquire a good taste for the dance floor, but you may not become an amazing dancer over night. You will however become increasingly confident dancing with other people.
Do not be intimidated by the links below, as all of these people are experienced dancers with many years under their belts. Instead, take it as something to look forwrad to and build towards!
**Latin Dance will NOT be taking place this semester. Check back for future course options.**

The Bachata originated from the Dominican Republic, where the music was also born. The Bachata music is easily recognized by the use of romantic guitar rhythms, creating a passionate dance style. An increasing amount of people began to love dancing the Bachata, as it travelled and became popular all around the world. The Bachata began first as a closed dance style, and has since developed to use both opened and closed dance frame. It is fun to learn how to Bachata, and the beautiful music will have you enchanted.
