"๐“๐ก๐ž ๐•๐š๐ฅ๐ฎ๐ž ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐Œ๐ž๐ซ๐ž๐ง๐ ๐ฎ๐ž" . . . as this topic shows a need for deeper insight, or at least another perspective, I am urged to offer the benefit of my experience having developed and used a system for teaching the Latin Dances for some time, and for particularly establishing a core structure of Merengue (Meringue), Salsa, Rumba & Cha Cha (Latin Style) as the foundation for Latin Dancers to truly enjoy what Latin Dancing has to offer.

That being said, I believe that Merengue (& Rumba) is at the root of all of the Latin Dances and still remains at the base of those styles that have returned or have been further developed . . .

. . . I believe that Merengue, if properly taught, is still a key foundation for understanding, rhythm, timing, partnering, Lead & Follow, as well as provide more advanced Moves (being at the source or genesis of the โ€œMovesโ€ Concept).

With the proper tutoring of the spectrum of Merengue โ€œTechnique & Stylingโ€, a new dancer can learn to dance any of the other Latin Dances with ease and become much more confident and proficient in many more dances and in the shortest possible time (I will always welcome challenges on this fact)!

๐’๐จ ๐Š๐„๐˜ ๐“๐€๐Š๐„๐€๐–๐€๐˜๐’ ๐š๐ซ๐ž:

๐Ÿ. Merengue is not merely or only a beginners dance, as many โ€œadvancedโ€ Dancers & Tutors should seek to learn more about and be able to demonstrate, that they can truly master merengue on the dancefloor before talking it down or dismissing it . . . Challenge yourself to a Merengue Dance-Off if you will . . . !

๐Ÿ. Merengue is the true teacher of Partnering, Rhythm & Timing Technique, Balance, Speed & Control, Shines, etc., . . . Try dancing Merengue by yourself and see the challenges without a partner to focus your skills (a true test of Partnering)! . . . or try learning and teaching all the moves you believe are from Salsa, Bachata or the other styles and you will find that many, if not most, come from Merengue roots.

๐Ÿ‘. Finally, True Musicality can be developed from proper teaching technique based on the understanding of basic merengue movement . . . Note that any of the other latin dance styles can be performed by listening and finding the respective rhythms in the Simple Merengue Beat . . . Try dancing Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba, Cha Cha, etc., by using the Basic Merengue Music Rhythms and finding the respective beats in the music . . . the best test for learning to listen and dance to the music.

As you will expect (๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ฆ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถโ€™๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜จ๐˜ฉ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ง๐˜ข๐˜ณ), that I can go on showing that Merengue is a much more advanced, elegant and sophisticated dance style than you now witness as the simple Marching Steps (Ballroom Style) executed on the Dancefloor by โ€œAdvancedโ€ Dancers as well as many โ€œTutorsโ€ alike . . . !

I hope to not step on anyone toes here, but if one truly seeks out learning the Merengue and its Technique, Moves and Styles, . . . you will maybe find an even more fun and expert dance style than you currently see in the Salsa, Bachata and even the perceived newer latin dance styles.

So we have been learning from our students just as much as they have been learning from our B&L Dance Crash-Course and Dance Classes in general, . . . more importantly, we have been made aware that our "FREE-STYLE Dance Programmes" seem to now be categorized as it's own โ€œTeaching Styleโ€.Ballroom & The Passion of the Argentine TANGO.

Although this is a new concept to get our heads around (since all tutoring should at least follow some standardized technical or structural process), as we learn more from these shared class experiences, we are further amazed by the Eureka expressions when a previously learned dance sequence (or dance move) suddenly comes together, particularly for the more active dancers (i.e., those that have been dancing and attending other classes for some time).

Getting to the point . . . after learning so much from our students and their feedback, we can now concede that we do have an apparent โ€œTeaching Styleโ€, so I thought I would at least try to highlight some key elements to our approach and philosophy to our Dance Tutoring & Classes:Message or Chat with us LIVE!
1. Learning fundamental technique is more important than learning a sequence of steps or moves;
2. Fundamental technique begins with understanding Music, Rhythm & Timing . . . โ€œwhat are you hearing and dancing to?โ€;
3. Ensure that you and your dance partner enjoy dancing even more than you enjoy the music . . . (no easy feat when you believe that you have to think about the myriad of sequences, steps and moves! . . . an approach that is diametrically opposed to our now conceded โ€œTeaching Styleโ€);
4. Learning to Dance (our) โ€œFREE-STYLEโ€ FORMAT (โ€˜Teaching-Styleโ€™) is about understanding 5 tenets - Rhythm, Timing, Execution, Lead & Follow.Aficionada Dance Shoes Gear & Apparel.

We believe, wrapped-up in these four (4) elements & five (5) tenets, are the key to learning all the various dance styles, moves and sequences to allow a fun experience and enjoyment for both you and your dance partner.

Injecting the missing ingredients . . . we appreciate that the thought of โ€œstarting overโ€ is a bit nerve-wracking, and although we can literally lay 100โ€™s of โ€œnew movesโ€ and "dance sequences" on our students, we are less likely to take this approach until the above elements & tenets can be appreciated and explored by new (& old) dance enthusiasts, beginners or experienced dancers.

That being said, our class philosophy and focus is on ensuring that students have fun learning to dance and even more fun dancing in the first instance . . . and then can confidently enjoy dancing and executing all the new stuff they learned . . . so come join the fun . . . Cheers! - ABDA Admin.

Thank You All for making it Memorable!

To you our patrons and attendees whose feedback and enjoyment have been overwhelmingly positive and gracious! . . . and to the hard working crew who balance work and play . . . With LUV from ABDA!
