DID YOU KNOW? Dance can greatly improve flexibility and range of motion. Flexibility is important to health because it improves mobility and decreases your risk of injury and overall muscle soreness. When flexibility is not regularly worked on via dance or stretching, muscles shorten with time. This will produce a stiff feeling and puts limits on your daily exercise.

Spotlight on MERENGUE! Merengue is the national dance of the Domincan Republic and Haiti. The leader holds the followers waist with their right hand and holds the followers hand with their left. The partners circle their partner with small steps. This dance is all about the hips! However, the original Merengue was not danced in couples. It was a circle dance in which the men and women faced each other holding hands at arms length.
Legend has it that the Merengue came from a Latin American presidente that was injured in war. Due to his injuries, he was only able to step with one leg and had to drag the other while we danced. Out of Courtesy, his guests mirrored his steps and thus was born this fun and creative dance style.
