Merengue is sometimes called the national dance of the Dominican Republic and is one of the simplest Latin dances to learn. The emphasis is on simplicity in step patterns rather than drama and style. The basic steps are to the side with the partners holding each other in closed dance position. When turns are used, Merengue's turns are casual walking steps rather than the spin turns seen in Salsa.
Bachata is a dance from the Dominican Republic. Bachata music has four beats per measure. The dancer takes three steps to four beats of music. As with Salsa, the step timing is three steps and then a one-beat pause. The knees are flexed on the steps. Given its humble origins, the steps are flat footed. The timing if called out sounds like "one, two, three, uh; one, two, three, uh."
Hip-hop dance refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture. Hip-hop dance is a broad category that includes a variety of styles. New style hip-hop is very rhythmic and involves a lot of footwork and radial movement of the hips.
