In our online classes we introduce our students to simple merengue dancing. We may not be able to dance as fluidly as one might in the Dominican Republic, but we have to start somewhere. We start by simple marching — stepping with the left foot, then step with the right. Step on each count. The most important thing though, is that we slightly bend the knee on each step. This leads us to shift our weight from side to side, which will make our hips move. WE KEEP MARCHING. WE KEEP HIPS MOVING. Repeat, repeat, repeat.
