To be able to socialize and have fun, many people learn different activities that can attract others either in their daily routine or during a rest time they have; among those activities is music and dance, where the person can interact with their neighbor and / or partner (a) either by practicing it or simply talking about the subject.
Dancing is simply the act of performing a dance, where a person uses his or her body to perform movements to the beat or to the rhythm of a music or melody, in order to express a message, by tradition or with the aim of entertaining oneself; of course, in order to practice it, body communication is very important because the couple or group needs to know certain signals that indicate the “when” or “how”, in order to perform the steps and as a result the success of this performance will test the quality, maturity and growth of the dancers; and to perfect the technique the best thing they could do is to look for an academy where they can orient them and thus achieve their equilibrium either as a couple or as an individual.
However the dance is not something monotonous, it has different musical genres and on this occasion we will talk about La Salsa, La Bachata, El Merengue and a little known but at the same time very interesting rhythm called Lambada.
The tenses in these 4 musical genres are different, for example:
- The Lambada is a dance that comes from Brazil although you still have doubts about its exact origin. Another influence of its development came from Caribbean music adding metal drums, electric guitars making this a unique musical experience. It has a degree of popularity in Europe because it is exotic and uncommon due to certain characteristics la Lambada that there are traces of flamenco and other ancient Spanish dances. The Lambada uses a three (3) beats, where the first 2 are fast and the third (3rd) is slow, with simple steps dancing either in the same place or on the side, showing momentum and interest where the dancer is looser, flexible and docile, whereas the woman is full bodily movement and should be guided by her partner, as if the woman were clay in the hands of the potter.
- La Salsa is an Afro-Caribbean rhythm and dance fused with jazz and other styles. Its birth has been much debated, but it is known that it comes from a fusion carried out by the inhabitants of the Caribbean when they listened to European music and then mixed it with their drums, it is a rhythm with flavor, joy and the force of life, a very common characteristic when it comes to party, which one can associate through the salsa songs. The Salsa handles a four (4) beat beat beat, either side to side or back and forth, it can also be crossed (as if you draw a “V” with the 2 and 3 in the middle) and the turns in both dancers can be from simple to complex as you progress level in (a dance academy), citing the textual words of Glenis is a rhythm where the woman It’s man-guided, so if you want to blame her for a misstep, you know who to blame.
- The Merengue is a dance from the Dominican Republic, becoming a Caribbean and Latin rhythm, it is one of the easiest rhythms to learn to dance even without experience, since it is not as fast or strict as the “Salsa” is, its movement can be back and forth, or side to side, always adding very noticeable hip movement with the rest of the body although not as exaggerated as bachata or kizomba; giving it a touch of flavor and flavor. It is required to do this a close dance with your partner that when salsa is danced, facilitating the fluency of the couple at the time of moving and so be more synchronized, of course it is that not all the time is like this, the trick is the synchronization of the couple’s steps; usually it resembles the turns of the salsa with the merengue.
There are many types of dances in each country and in its academies and-or dance venues, which have their own rules, tips, names and steps to follow, what matters is that you achieve the ultimate goal which is to “dance” by holding classes regularly, following the advice of your teachers, practicing your technique outside your classes, dedicating time to improve your dance skills specific, improve your postures, exercise without abusing it getting your rest time and above all observe outstanding dancers of different styles, this way you will be able to achieve your goals without staying on the path of learning.
