Learn Merengue online video thumbnail

This Learn To Dance video lesson will be a few fun Merengue moves to practice in your front rooms.

The lesson will be broken down into easy to follow sections to help you learn the steps, and then builds up from there.

We give you plenty of time to practice the routine as we build it up, but if you’re happy with the basics you can always skip ahead.

Learn Merengue

The Merengue comes from the Dominican Republic but also shares similarities with other dance styles, such as Calypso.

We’ll start you off with the basic march, and add in a Reverse Top.

Then we’re going to bring in a Wrap and Walkaround, before introducing a Change of Sides for our partner.

Finally we’re going to add in the Rolling Off The Arm to tie all the moves together.

Don’t forget you can always pause and rewind to work on any steps and moves you struggle with.

The Music

For this Learn Merengue lesson we have used Swing of the Hips by Jay Cano (we couldn’t find an online player for this one).
