Merengue is a style of dance derived from Latin American music. It has a 2-step beat, with partners in a closed position. Merengue is the national dance of the Dominican Republic and also of Haiti (Meringue), the neighbor sharing the island. Musically, it has links with Cuba but the dance belongs to the island of Hispaniola – one third of which is Haiti and the other two thirds, Dominican Republic.

Bachata is a social dance from the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. The basic steps of this pattern move side to side, changing direction after every tap. Characteristics of this “early” dance school dance is the close connection between partners, soft hip movements, tap with a small “pop” of the hip on the 4th step (1, 2, 3, tap/hip) and does not include many turns/figures. Most of the styling in this dance is from ballroom dance and show moves like dips are commonly used.
