Merengue


A risqué dance introduced to the US in 1941, merengue is a Latin style claimed by both the Dominican Republic and Haiti that relies heavily on rhythmic drums and scorching brass lines. Xavier Cugat, a Spanish bandleader living in Havana, revitalized the style in 1957 with broad strokes of excitement and cadence. With a lot of hip movement and sex appeal, the merengue is your dance if you need to fire up some vitality in your life.
