5:15 p.m. Bachata - Bachata dance is known for its love stories and its syncopated rhythm. The dance was born of the music in the Dominican Republic during the 1960s.
6:30 p.m. Salsa - Salsa, a popular dance style, originated on the island of Cuba during the 1920s, coinciding with the emergence of various music genres that eventually contributed to the creation of salsa music. Cuba was a melting pot of diverse Latin dance styles, and it was in this environment that Fania, a local Cuban studio, coined the term "salsa" and began playing it on the radio and at clubs. Consequently, salsa music and dance became increasingly popular throughout Cuba, and later spread to South America and Miami. As the music made its way to new regions, musicians picked it up and incorporated new elements, which in turn led to the evolution of the salsa dance with additional moves and styles.
8:00 p.m. Merengue - Merengue was invented by slaves in the 1700s. The belief is that the Merengue is the result of a combination of two different dances: the African and the French Minuet. The story goes like this: slaves in the Dominican Republic would watch their masters dance these stoic ballroom dances during various events and then they would get together and mimic the dances of the "masters." Being as these dances were stiff and arguably boring, slaves made the dance their own by quickening the tempo of the music and adjusting their dancing to the newly created rhythm.
