The merengue is a dance that is known to be from Dominican Republic. It requires a couple to do this dance. Both people are close together with each partner holding one hand of their partner’s. Then the man’s hand and arm is around the woman’s waist. The woman’s hand is on the man’s shoulder or back. The main concept with this steps to this dance is with the hips.

The hips move back and forth. The couple will move around in circles and left and right. There is also merengue music which influenced the dance. Rafael Trujillo started the Dominican Republic merengue music. The Dominican Republic is a country in the Caribbean. It is located on the same island as Hispaniola.
