The easiest Latin dance to learn is called Merengue. It is a two beats rhythm that originated in the Dominican Republic, and it is an absolutely fun and exciting dance. Even if you have two left feet, this dance has been proven to show anyone, including you; if you’re reading this article, that you can dance and for that reason we teach Merengue in the first class of Salsa Nightclub Level One course, to build everyone’s confidence up and to prove that anyone can dance.
The second easiest dance after that would be Bachata. Bachata is a rhythm of a four-even beat, and It’s a dance of the heart. It feels like being on a beach with friends and having fun when you dance to it. When I was a student, I loved learning Bachata, and I am super passionate about it as I teach it now as an instructor.
If you travel anywhere in the world, you will hear Merengue, Bachata, and Salsa. And so, if I think of difficulty level, Salsa would be the third most effortless. Yes, Salsa, definitely of the three, is the most challenging but also the most rewarding and well-known tropical dance. Who hasn’t heard of Salsa? And I’m not talking about the food, of course. Heck! You can listen to Salsa music as you walk into a convenience store these days. It is the most accessible Latin dance in the sense that whether you’re in Saint Petersburg or you travel to Seoul in South Korea, you will find a Latin dance floor where they play Salsa music.
And so here’s the most incredible part, in our school in Salsa Nightclub level one, we teach all three dance styles because we believe that when you go on a Latin dance floor, we never want you sitting out not being able to dance to the music that you hear.
When you learn Salsa, Bachata or Merengue, you will open yourself to an incredible experience. Regardless of the place you are, a dance floor in Canada, a beach in Barbados or attending a fiesta in Puerto Rico, or anywhere in the world, I think the most fun you’ll have is being able to get on the dance floor. You don’t even need to speak the language, as long as your body speaks the language of the dance.
I hope someday I get a chance to dance with you, connect with you, and share all that I have picked up and learned at this very school that I started as a student Learning, my Merengue learning my Bachata and learning my Salsa.
