MERENGUE

The Merengue is the national dance of the Dominican Republic and, to some extent, its island-sharing neighbor, Haiti. Merengue has existed since the early years of the Dominican Republic, around the time of the Spanish-American War (1898).

Like most modern music, Merengue is written in 4/4 time and in this dance, the feet move on every beat. Merengue is essentially a "fun" dance that is easy to learn and is ideally suited to the small, crowded dance floor.
