Hips don’t lie! Especially not in this Latin Beats-Merengue Class. Join us!...


You’ll be enchanted with moves and grooves of this ballroom extravaganza! All levels are welcome and be on the lookout for some hints of other Latin flavors like Bachata.


You’ll learn the basic steps to the rhythm and timing of the music, hip roll, body isolation, socialize and most importantly have fun with this Merengue workshop!

Merengue dance is a fast-paced partner social dance--originally from the Dominican Republic--and loved the world over for its ease and hip-moving fun!


No partner necessary--and come enjoy this special, one-time workshop class!
