Video Tutorial – Merengue: Lesson 04/15 Basic Step to the Beat – The Merengue is the national dance of the Dominican Republic, and also to some extent, of Haiti, the neighbor sharing the island.
There are two popular versions of the of the origin of the Dominican national dance, the Merengue. One story alleges the dance originated with slaves who were chained together and, of necessity, were forced to drag one leg as they cut sugar to the beat of drums. The second story alleges that a great hero was wounded in the leg during one of the many revolutions in the Dominican Republic. A party of villagers welcomed him home with a victory celebration and, out of sympathy, everyone dancing felt obliged to limp and drag one foot.

There is a lot of variety in Merengue music. Tempos vary a great deal and the Dominicans enjoy a sharp quickening in pace towards the latter part of the dance. The most favored routine at the clubs and restaurants that run a dance floor is a slow Bolero, breaking into a Merengue, which becomes akin to a bright, fast Jive in its closing stages. The ballroom Merengue is slower and has a modified hip action.

Did you think Shakira was original? well, an earlier version of Waka Waka has been around since the 80s. Just imagine yourself in any corner of Latin America, and you would have find that people were already moving their hips to the rhythm
of WAKA WAKA (version done by Merengue Band from Republica Dominicana “Las Chicas del Can”)

Here is the video with a presentation of this famous “female merengue band” in a TV show from Venezuela in 1982

A big success all around Latin America and beyond (many years ago…) …so, it’s time to remember
… Enjoy it !
